How to Write a Biography

Whether you are a speaker and a trainer, or a Networker, or a jobseeker, writing the Bio may be critical to your obtaining your next gig. There are technical ways to do this but for me, writing in the 3rd person works best, because when I am introduced in a meeting, the M.C. does not need to edit what is written; it is already IN the 3rd person.

Be sure to include awards and recognitions you have received – I know this may be uncomfortable and feel rather braggadocious but the organization that will be reading your bio needs to know your qualifications.

Do you have your bio on your website? Do you send a bio or a promo page when someone requests to get on your schedule for a presentation? Be proud of your accomplishments and a well-done biography will be a great way to let people know what you are made of.

Cathy Weaver

Cathy Weaver began Networking full time in June of 2008, when she founded her Miracles With Water company. She started Networking all over the Greater Kansas City area and was soon referred to as a ‘Master Networker’. Her involvement in these groups over the years has actually awarded her designations such as 2012 Volunteer of the Year for the Olathe Chamber of Commerce; a four-time Bartlett-Olson Membership Achievement Award Recipient; and Cathy was voted into the KC Magazine’s 2013 Class of Most Influential Women. In 2018, Cathy was selected as the Kansas Women Business Advocate of the Year by the Kansas Department of Commerce. With the success of her Kangen Water business, dba Miracles With Water, Cathy also found the time to write 3 books: "Networking On Steroids" published in 2012, "He Hit The Clouds Running...and never looked back" published in 2017 and "Networking On Steroids PQ" published in 2020. From #water to #networking to #grief and beyond, Cathy may be that person YOU would like to have speak to your group, virtually, of course.
