"As the underdog first-time candidate against a wealthy, self-financed opponent, I was not supposed to win. With Kate's guidance and leadership our win made history. Kate is the type of dedicated, experienced coach you want on your side."
Nellie Gorbea, RI Secretary of State
“Kate’s enthusiasm is contagious. With experience as a organizer, operative and candidate, she sees the whole picture, can relate to any situation, and empowers others to succeed.”
Ellen Malcolm, Founder & President, EMILY’s List
"Kate Coyne-McCoy understands the complexity of women running - beyond the nuts and bolts of a campaign, she helps women excavate their personal narrative and build robust, successful bids for public office."
Stacey Abrams, Democratic Leader, Georgia House of Representatives
Kate Coyne-McCoy is one of the country’s best political trainers and strategists. Her depth of experience and incredible energy have helped elect candidates all over the US. I highly recommend!"
Karen White National Education Association
“Kate is one of the most insightful, intuitive, and disciplined strategists I’ve worked with. She cuts through the clutter of strategic possibilities to find the singular, often hidden, pivotal difference between winning and losing. She never gives up and fights harder than anyone I know to help candidates win.“
Joe Slade White, Joe Slade White & Company
Kate Coyne-McCoy has been the lead trainer for our Campaign School for Social Workers at the University of Connecticut for over 20 years. Kate brings a wealth of experience in politics as a candidate and consultant and has an engaging and interactive style. Even students who arrive with no ambition to run leave changed by a new understanding of their own political power. In our evaluations, Kate consistently receives the highest rating from attendees who appreciate the depth of her knowledge as well and her candor and humor. Frankly, I can't imagine the Campaign School without her.
Tanya Rhodes Smith | Director Nancy A Humphreys Institute for Political Social Work | UConn School of Social Work
"Kate Coyne McCoy is the best group trainer and facilitator I have ever worked with or observed. She engages each individual in large group settings, can explain complex information in understandable ways, is humorous but keeps her audience focused on the key take away information needed. Kate "wows" her participants with the way she presents and her development of appropriate materials."
State Senator Liz Kruger, New York State Senate
