Drew Hiss, CEO, Acumen Impact

“Kris Boesch brought energy and excitement to the Utah Library Association’s Annual Conference. Her ideas and approaches to making the workplace better are innovative and empowering. I’ve already used what I learned to coach 2 of my employees in the few weeks since our conference. We had a diverse group of conference attendees and it’s not always easy to find a speaker who can resonate with everyone. Kris accomplished this and her keynote address was listed the most as the favorite session by our conference attendees.”

Dan Compton, Director, Summit County Library

“AMAZING! AWESOME! I can’t wait to take this back to my workplace and start implementing!  These types of comments were repeated over and over as our attendees filed out of Kris’s closing keynote at the 2019 HR Florida Conference & Expo. She even had our 2,700 attendees up and doing the chicken dance!  She cleverly mixed valuable insights with interactive experiences.  Boesch contributed to making our conference a huge success and was incredibly easy to work with. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a down-to-earth, high-energy keynote speaker who provides innovative and actionable content (and good dancing!).”

Heather Deyrieux, President, HR Florida State Council Inc.

“Kris, you rocked it!  You were the perfect fit as the keynote speaker for our annual AZ Women Leading Government.  I’ve even had several attendees go out of their way to tell me you were their favorite speaker!  What you shared really impacted our community and how many of them approach their work and their teams.   Thank you for your contribution to creating extraordinary workplace cultures – and not just in the private sector, but in the public sector as well.   Your message is important and your actionable recommendations and powerful takeaways were invaluable. Thank you for providing BOTH insightful innovative content AND tangible ways to meaningfully implement the ideas shared.”

Nicole Lance, CEO, Lance Strategies

“From the first time I heard Kris speak at our association’s annual conference, I noticed a genuineness and passion for excellence that is not always found in consultants. In addition to the solid and germane content of her presentation, I believe it is also her ability to really connect with the audience that makes it so effective. Simply put, our team loves Kris!”

Jim Finnegan, General Manager, Magnolia Hotels

“I attended your seminar and not only did you present an engaging, funny, informative presentation but you gave the audience tangible items they could readily implement in their organizations. I go to a lot of conferences…I sit through a lot of speakers… you knocked my socks off!”

Katherine Shenar, Executive Vice President & Chief of Staff, San Diego Humane Society

Susan Grutzmacher, Division Director of Boulder County Housing and Human Services

“Kris was amazing! Her presentation was packed with engaging, well researched and useful information. As a business owner, I got many practical and useful ideas – more than just ideas – I got real action items. Some have made an immediate difference in my company, and others have allowed me to change our strategic direction to make a lasting and long term difference for the happiness of my employees.”
