    FOREVER AND FOR ALL TO SEE: OUR ONLINE REALITY, features the growing importance of reputation/image management in this day of “digital everything.” The goal is to fuel a mindfulness about the fact that there is so little room for a "what was I thinking moment," online or off, before it could become attached to you "forever and for all to see," one mouse click away. That's especially alarming with the increasing pressure and temptation to share details of our lives, as well as our thoughts, with the world via social media on a regular basis. It’s based on Catherine’s own story of global humiliation, online style, that got her invited to appear on shows like Oprah, Good Morning America, Inside Edition, The O'Reilly Factor. Catherine takes you through her journey, and visits other real-life stories of how the online world can turn a real-life world upside down in a virtual split-second. No individual, business, or organization is immune. No one thinks it can happen to them, until it does. No one knows the devastation, until it’s their own. 

    On the cautionary side, the program is empowering, providing actionable steps to protect yourself, on a personal and professional level, from digital/social media drama.

    On the inspirational side, the presentation provides hope for overcoming such situations as Catherine shares her P.A.C.T. strategy for rising above. Too many people believe their lives, careers and businesses are over when something like a post, picture, email or text goes wrong. It doesn't have to be that way. 

    Catherine Bosley, a Cleveland, Ohio area native and Kent State graduate, is a two-time Emmy Award nominee, and Associated Press Award winning TV anchor and reporter. After nearly 30 years and five TV markets, she transitioned to work in TV on a freelance basis to launch her own company, CJB Productions, LLC. There, she puts her skills to work as an on-camera and virtual presentation coach, a video production consultant, and most importantly, performs as a speaker around the country, including a TEDx Talk. Her speaking events feature insight into finding and using inner strength, as well as how to make wiser choices in our online world which is the topic of her new book, FOREVER AND FOR ALL TO SEE.  

    Catherine is featured and quoted in various publications including Reader’s Digest, Ms. Magazine, Thrive Global, Authority Magazine, Romper Magazine, and Women Who Rock With Success Magazine. She’s also interviewed regularly on podcasts and has appeared in many media interviews, including on Good Morning America and Inside Edition

    In her free time, Catherine is an avid runner, finishing 13 marathons, and enjoys all kinds of sports and travel with her husband of 20 years.
