Transformative Topics

Kris was spectacular
We feel like she is part of the V3 family and people that normally don’t care for conferences made a point of saying how much they enjoyed her work with our team. We were so lucky to land on Kris and she was the cherry on our retreat sundae! Our annual meeting was a wonderful success and we all feel we made a new friend in Kris.
— Lori Woody, V3 Companies
Innovative and empowering
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
Extremely valuable
“It was extremely valuable to have specific areas we could focus on to improve our employee satisfaction therefore, our business. I give Choose People an enthusiastic recommendation. They have been a great partner for us.
— Paulette Hansen, Director of Career Development, Neenan
She even had our 2,700 attendees up and doing the chicken dance!
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 our 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!).

The perfect fit
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.

Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive
We wanted to extend a HUGE thank you from our team to you! Thank you again for giving such a meaningful talk and for being such a great person to work with. From our first discussion, we knew you would be a wonderful speaker for Carle Health. Your willingness to learn about us, our areas of improvement, and how you could help our leaders was much appreciated. Feedback from our CDI has been overwhelmingly positive and many leaders expressed appreciation for how useful your tools will be.

Engaging. Funny. Informative.
I attended your keynote and I must convey my deep appreciation to you. 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! I am now receiving your Culture Tips and I’m elated. Thanks for doing what you do… for doing it so well… and for inspiring leadership!
— Katherine Shenar President/CEO, Asheville Humane Society
The kind of culture I strive to have in our company
Kris Boesch exceeded our expectations as our Opening Keynote Speaker at our association’s 2021 Human Resources Conference. After having to cancel our 2020 conference due to COVID-19 and reschedule to a virtual event a year later, Kris was very supportive as we transitioned our event. Kris brought relevant and tangible tools that our attendees could use immediately to create camaraderie in the workplace. I highly recommend Kris, it was a great way to kick off the conference! Our attendees raved “Kris Boesch was excellent, this is the kind of culture I strive to have in our company. Totally onboard with her presentation and information.
