As a Top-200 Growing Company in Canada, Top 10 in Alberta, and Best Workplace, BluEra was a shining example of the Awakened Company System in action. With the sale of BluEra to DHR, Catherine shifted focus to awakening the fire within organizations through her Strategy with Soul consulting and founded The Awakened Company.

It was also a best seller on Amazon, included in “8 of The Best Leadership Books of 2015,” and was recognized as a top book combining business and mindfulness.

Catherine has been published in Fortune, HBR, Profit, Conscious Company Magazine, Women of Influence, and has written for the UN.

She hosts in-person sessions with organizations on strategy and corporate culture, international webinars on the Enneagram, and teaches The Awakened Company team process to Queen’s University business school students.
