Auckland newcomer scoops “Emerging Speaker” national award
An Auckland woman has won the prestigious BrightStar “Emerging Speaker” award at the National Speakers Association
annual gala function.
Motivational speaker, Cath Vincent won the national award against three nominees in the BrightStar category (less than
three years in the industry).
Only two awards were dished out this year at the black tie event in Auckland.
Cath picked up her glass green and blue koru award, which now adorns the recording studio office she shares with her
musician husband, Jesse Wilde .
Cath Vincent owns her own motivational speaking business called “Wake up your WOW,” where she gives inspiration to
conference goers and offers one on one mentoring.
Cath was delighted to win the award against stiff competition across New Zealand.
“I’ve only been in the country three years and I arrived knowing no-one. So I am proud of building my business from
scratch and this award shows what anyone can do if they set their mind to it,” Cath said.
With more than twenty years’ experience in communications and change, Cath Vincent is an expert in helping people
revolutionise their personal effectiveness.
Cath previously launched her own business consultancies in the UK, Australia and New Zealand as well as a DTI
award-winning IT company.
As a motivational speaker, she now travels the world inspiring companies and individuals alike.
She will help you “Wake Up Your WOW”! Her inspirational message is universal and will show you simple ways to operate at
your best every day. Funny, engaging and energetic, Cath is recognised as a visionary by other professional speakers,
and leading by example she can show you how anyone can be a supremely confident speaker.
