Cathy Gilmore, Virtue Advocate


A Speaker for Professionals, Parents, and Educators

Cathy is a passionate advocate for virtue who adapts her virtue message to a broad range of audiences and venues. Her premiere presentation is her Virtue Works! “Being Light in the Dark” event for Parents, Grandparents and Teachers. She shows how to recognize toxins in culture and points to virtue-rich solutions and antidotes.

For national professional organizations, she shows how the power of the virtue of empathy can be a key to marketing strategy success. (The link is to a video of one of Cathy’s talks.)

Cathy’s unique virtue versatility resonates equally with retirees and professionals, as with parents and teens. Cathy’s virtue mission flows from her devoted Catholic faith. View her letter of Good Standing from her pastor.


A Sample of Cathy’s Style

See the genesis of Cathy’s efforts to energize the world with the power of virtue experienced through stories. Her efforts to engage everyone’s spiritual imagination was the seed bed of the entire Virtue Works! effort. Now, as spokesperson and lead virtue mentoring trainer for Virtue Works Media, she equips grownups and teens to come alongside youth and children to DESIRE to know, and live, with virtue and holiness.


The Power of Parables

As an award-winning children’s author, Cathy’s school visits help children discover that growth in virtue can be as simple as a story. Her handle on Twitter is @PowerofParable because she believes so strongly that Jesus showed us the best way to teach children faith and virtue: STORIES. Cathy helps young children and middle grade students spot real superpowers in the stories they read. They are called VIRTUES.

Cathy’s work with “Beyond the Trend” Teens helps them connect with Catholic creatives, who are role models, making the world a BeTTer place by creating virtue-rich books, videos, and music.
