Knowing the goals for your communication is a key tenet of Latimer learning. In this episode of the Message Makeover podcast, we talk to Kate Duffy, a Second City alumnus, about the power of setting specific intentions for every single thing we do. Kate has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, written for Netflix shows and just finished a pilot with Ed Begley, Jr. She also coaches executives and works with leading Universities including Columbia, Duke and UCLA.

In this episode of our podcast, Kate shares what makes us memorable to others, how lack of confidence undermines your message and she demystifies the craft of storytelling. We are grateful to Kate for spending time with us and hope you enjoy the podcast!
