Comments from Event Attendees:


“I had the privilege of listening to Kim’s seminar at NYU this summer while I was an intern. In person, she is a very personable leader who not only radiates confidence in her talk but also an extraordinary authenticity that is both very moving and inspirational. I have listened to many similar talks but none of them compare to what Kim delivered: she assured the audience that in the climb of becoming professional, one should also strive to be humane to each other as well.” - Prima Ryadina H. Utami

“Kim Ann Curtin is not your ordinary coach. Her stories, experiences and events in her life are astounding in itself; it truly proves that all it takes are passion, devotion and a little bit of luck. I attended one of her talks at NYU and it was one of the best speeches I’ve ever listened to. She was captivating, genuine and extremely personable. It gave me a kick-start and allowed me to discover the true principles in life and to believe in the people in it. It’s an authentic and motivational talk that everyone deserves to hear. I truly recommend Kim, she creates value to the important things in life that people often ignore.” - Pear Kulthanan

“I was very lucky to have had the chance to listen Kim Ann’s amazing talk at NYU. She is a leader, an inspirer, and a kind-hearted person. She reaches out to people and helps them to be authentic and be who they really are. As a student, this helps me realize what will make me most happy is to be myself and follow what I want to do in my life the most. There will be obstacles in fulfilling your dreams, but Kim Ann teaches that if you put in the best effort and mentality, they will become a reality. If Kim Ann is near your area, please come and hear her talk; I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. It will change the way you think about life.” - Bao H Nguyen
