Kristin is Your Insurance to Make Your Event Extraordinary
With Kristin as your Emcee – Master (or Mistress, depending on how PC you want to be) of Ceremonies, you can be assured that your business event will flow smoothly and on time. She’s the glue that holds it all together in a gracious and elegant way.
Kristin quickly connects with the group with her warm, engaging style. She reinforces the conference theme and “connects the dots” between mainstage speakers and event activities. She involves the audience without making them do silly teambuilding, ra-ra, turn to your neighbor activities. She’s “refreshingly candid,” building conversations with the audience about key issues. She’s known to be spontaneous, witty, and gets the audience to crack a few smiles and chuckles – even with left-brained scientists and engineers!
Caveat: While Kristin is fun, engaging, and perfect for business meetings, she is NOT a comedienne or entertainer – so if that’s what you are looking for, we can refer you to a colleague!
