Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn't know the first thing about either.

“Kristi was a hit at The Conference Board's ‘Talent Management Strategies’ conference! During her session on how to effectively coach high potentials from a strengths-based perspective, her expertise and experience was complemented with a dynamic delivery style that every participant thoroughly enjoyed! She used great story telling and imagery (hammer, gears) to make the session memorable for all. I highly recommend Kristi!”
