Tony Schwartz - Realtor with Beacon Properties
My experience working with Kate DiLeo was nothing short of amazing. I have been an entrepreneur for 30 years, owned numerous different companies and have had my Real Estate Brokerage, Beacon Properties, for 25 years. During that time I have never done strategic branding of any kind and I never realized the importance of it until I did the Brand Exploration program with Kate. This process gave me an entirely new look at my business, myself, and what message and feeling I want to send out about my business. The Brand Exploration program has helped me realize what was important to me, what my “why” is for doing what I do, and how I want to express that in my business. I also gained real outcomes with having my entire brand written, and I learned how I could tangibly implement those in my elevator pitch, on my website, and across my marketing platforms. At the end of the day, knowing who you are and why you matter is so important in translating how you can positively impact your clients and your employees. I would highly recommend that everyone go through the Brand Exploration process!

Ms. J - Manners Are Memorable
My work with Kate was some of the most productive than I’ve had in a while. I was bogged down with what to say and how to say it when it came to describing my brand for my business. Kate efficiently helped me to craft the language in record time, and her approach is friendly, engaging and professional while effective and efficient. I was able to accomplish more in a few hours than I had accomplished in months. Kate is poised and professional; she has a way of approaching situations that are challenging while maintaining the highest degree of decorum and respect. If you are seeking someone to help you move forward with you branding, I highly recommend Kate. She’s a delight to work with and she delivers. Definitely worth the time and financial investment.
~ Juliet Mitchell, Owner, Ms. J – Manners Are Memorable
Kate was incredible at extracting my thoughts, with words flying around the room, and helping me form my brand into something that was already a part of me. The process with her was not only helpful for clearly defining my message, but outlining my differentiators and what makes me unique. Kate made the whole Brand Exploration process fun and enjoyable!
~ Kyle Livingood, Owner,Goldenrod Media
Dogbones In Motion
Kate helped me get my thoughts and plans out of my head and onto paper, and we worked primarily on brand development for my company, Dogbones In Motion. She is super organized, a master with words, and multi-talented. Her focus on the entrepreneur and small business owner was a perfect fit, both for our work putting brand to paper, as well as accessing additional resources and referrals. She is in the business of helping me see the business I want to create and is truly passionate about partnering with me for my success. Kate is truly enjoyable to work with and I would highly recommend her.
~ Heidi Frey, Owner,Dogbones In Motion
I had no branding direction for my business when I first met with Kate. She showed me how important a strong brand message is for my clients, but even more importantly for myself as a small business owner. Putting words to the type of work and clientele that I want to pursue has been a huge value. I have much more direction as I pursue the growth of my business. Kate’s Brand Exploration process has been amazing and worthwhile, and she also has been an incredible advocate for me in growing my business!

Teresa Cleveland - Entrepreneur
Working with Kate for my Brand Exploration has been a powerful experience for me in the process of establishing my vision for the future. She was significantly influential in helping me ‘find my voice’ and focus both the direction of my business building and the message it would be delivering. Many of us have that capacity within ourselves and don’t always see the value in paying someone to facilitate what is in our hearts and minds. I found the process literally invaluable. On my own, I find more reasons to be distracted and have an ongoing list of incomplete action steps. The engagement with Kate gave me the ability to take what is within, put it into an action plan that is achievable and realistic. This is something everyone can benefit from. I HIGHLY recommend Kate for this Brand Exploration process and believe the return on investment will be 100-fold. Thank you Kate for you help in solidifying a future I can be proud of.

City of Dayton, Minnesota
The City of Dayton chose to work with Kate on our new website after exploring several alternatives. Kate displayed a knowledge of website building and maintenance that can only be gained from experience. She showed a firm grasp of what the City required from its new website, and made numerous insightful recommendations that improved the functionality, aesthetics, and created a user-friendly experience for visitors to the site.
Kate really drove the project and kept it on track setting up meetings, keeping to a strict deadline and being available whenever staff needed some hand holding, to complete the daunting task of streamlining existing data, from a website that had grown organically into a tangle of pages, links and outdated information.
Kate’s positive attitude and unceasing patience helped drive the project to a successful conclusion on-time and on budget. I would recommend Kate to anybody looking to refresh a tired website, or build a new online presence.
~ Martin Farrell, Lead Superintendent and Project Lead, City of Dayton
Kate DiLeo is an excellent resource to work with on your brand identity.

Kate is able to help you evolve all the ideas and thoughts you may have on your business giving you a platform to establish strong mission, vision, strategies and tactics that provide structure and business and personal brand identity. Thanks Kate, for helping us make it over the finish line with our branding!
~ Mark Lozano, President and CEO, GL Consulting
Kate is brilliant! She understands my brand and knows how to represent it well on the web. Her solutions are fast and affordable and she makes it easy for me to reach my audiences. Whenever I need her for marketing needs (which is often), her work is superior, and I can always trust that I’m in good hands!
~ Melissa DeLay, Founder and Principal Owner, TruPerception
I had the pleasure of working with Kate in various marketing and project management capacities, and the results were always terrific. Kate is one of the most hard working professionals I know and she has excellent project management skills along with a high-level of action orientation. Kate has a passion for GTD (getting things done) and she leads by inspiring others through her great work ethic. Kate is an asset to any organization she works with.
