Speaking & Facilitation
I am a public speaker and facilitator who speaks to groups large and small about topics relating to mindfulness, meditation, anxiety, balanced living, and stress management.
I specialize in adapting this important content to the needs and perspective of the audience to make it accessible and actionable.
I gather information about the group's needs and culture beforehand in order to prepare trainings that are well-received and useful... then I stay flexible, leaving room for what’s needed in the moment!
Whether your event is a plenary at an international conference or an introduction to nature meditation for you and your friends, you’ll find me to be responsive, organized, engaging, and real.
What people are saying
It was my pleasure to invite Katie Dutcher as a guest speaker for a group of 33 students from China, most of whom had never encountered mindfulness or meditation before. Ms. Dutcher's approach was thoughtful— she wanted to know as much as possible about the group before giving her talk. The result was a tailored lecture targeted specifically to the group's needs and interest level. Her speaking style is calm, yet passionate, and she can handle challenging questions with grace and confidence. I highly recommend Katie Dutcher if you are curious about bringing mindfulness into your work and personal life. Her passion for mindfulness is inspiring and contagious!

“It has been a privilege to work with Katie Dutcher as a speaker and trainer for our organization. She is organized, focused and an expert in her craft. Every time we have hired her, she has gone above and beyond to understand the background, needs and tendencies of the target audience, customize content to that group, and engage participants in a way that draws them in and holds their attention for the duration. We find ourselves coming back to her every few months to invite her back.
Our community has benefited greatly from Katie's practices, calming nature and energy, as well as the guidance she leaves participants with at the conclusion of each event. I highly recommend Katie Dutcher for any of your mindfulness facilitation, training or speaking needs. You will not regret it!”

“Katie presented a workshop on “Courage in the Face of Uncertainty” to 40+ women at the 2016 Bullish Conference in Palm Springs. She is an authentic presenter who brings a voice of calmness and sanity to any gathering. Her wisdom was much appreciated.”
