Celia Taylor, Corporate Headquarters
National HealthCare Corporation

Murfreesboro, Tennessee

"The Healthcare Communicators is an excellent company to work with. National HealthCare Corporation has done business with Cat Selman for more than 12 years. She has been a guest speaker at many of our conferences throughout the years, speaking to Recreation, Social Work, Dietary, Nursing, Therapy, and Administration. With each speaking engagement she gets rave reviews and usually another booking for a future session."

"We continue to choose Ms. Selman because we always know she will provide accurate, timely information. Paying for a speaker and not knowing how they will come across is always a fear when planning a meeting. However, with Cat we know what we are getting and we know each participant will come away from the session with tools and ideas to help them in their job."

"Cat Selman has the respect of CMS and stays well informed on the latest training for surveyors. Her sessions include personal stories from her years working directly with residents, as well as current information she gathers from research and conversations with those creating and enforcing the regulations. She takes what could be a very dull session and keeps everyone engaged. Her great sense of humor and willingness to share her heart with the audience creates an atmosphere that fosters learning. Participants leave her sessions feeling energized and full of new knowledge that will assist them as they continue to make a difference in the lives of their residents."

Mary Margaret Judy, Executive Director
St. Catherine????????s Village

Madison, Mississippi

"The first time I attended a Cat Selman program I basically was positively overwhelmed with the many messages she shared. She beautifully weaves the educational topic with her real world experience in long term care, encouraging common sense and individual empowerment. The final outcome is an individual motivated for the betterment of the residents we serve."

"After that program, I knew that it would be impossible to get all of our staff to one of her programs, so we asked Cat to come to our staff. She offered sessions on all shifts, plus a management "Power Luncheon." The employees thanked us for this educational program."

"Our employees had such an overwhelmingly wonderful and motivating experience that we asked Cat to return again. Additionally, we have incorporated such programming into our yearly educational plans. We are looking forward to her DVD releases, as they will be incorporated into employee orientation."

"There are very few people I would trust to design a program for us. Cat is one. After communicating our desired outcomes, she creates a memorable and motivating program that encourages positive behaviors, human interactions, and while teaching she injects listening and problem solving skills. Every message is brought right back to the resident."

"Cat is real - she bonds with the staff; her experiences are real; and she makes education realistic, enjoyable, inspiring, and motivating. Already our staff is looking forward to next year's program. We consider Cat a member of our team."


Some employee comments...


"I have attended many of Cat's programs and they are always new and exciting. I make a point to see her at least once a year to re-energize. She reminds me of why I chose to work in long-term care."

"She is so real and the stories she tells are real."

"We get great feedback; our employees are appreciative."

"Everything is brought back to the resident...she makes it real."

"Encourages positive behaviors, teaches listening, human interaction, teaches solutions."

"Thought provoking and makes me think. She brings the topic home to me and makes me think not just about how it applies in the work environment, but in every aspect of our lives."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Cat in scheduling quality of life and culture change training specifically tailored to the needs of our continuing care retirement community. Cat quickly assessed the needs of our community and planned training that helped move our organization closer to its goals of culture change. Cat presented with ease to a diverse audience sharing new concepts and technical information in a way that everyone understood. Cat is always well prepared with the subject matter she is presenting and identifies interesting and entertaining ways to deliver the information. Our staff looks forward to having her join us for another presentation soon."
