About the author

Catherine DeVrye

Catherine DeVrye is a best-selling author of 8 non-fiction books, translated into over a dozen languages, including a #1 best-selling business book in Australia and Taiwan. Her memoir also made the best seller list in Australia and Canada.

Past winner of the Australian Executive Woman of the Year Award and Keynote Speaker of the Year, she is an outstanding communicator and her delightfully humorous approach to presenting authentic content has earned standing ovations and long queues at book signings and corporate conferences on 5 continents.

Her books have been endorsed by Sir Edmund Hillary, Dr Edward DeBono, Bryce Courtenay, Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen.

One who never excelled during English class at high school, Catherine calls herself an ‘accidental author’; simply writing from experience-and from the heart-in line with her mission to help others help themselves.

Always in search of adventure-and fresh material-she has swam with sharks, cycled over the Andes, climbed to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro and beyond Everest Base Camp, volunteered with street kids in Vietnam & carried the Olympic torch on the day of the opening ceremonies of the Sydney Olympics. Yet, she always sees writing the next book as her biggest challenge.
