Kerri was a phenomenal speaker.  I left her presentation with concrete steps and items I can implement in the workplace.


Kerri jumped on board without hesitation and was very flexible as we cycled through our planning stages and onto the actual event. She was super responsive during every step and on the day of the event, she showed up incredibly prepared and with a sense of approachability.


Kerri was very positive, engaging, entertaining, and encouraging especially when it came to group participation.
