“Kristen recently spoke to our group of consultants on important demographic trends for Alberta and what those trends mean for organizations and individual professionals. She lit up the room with her captivating presentation that included insightful analysis, helpful visuals, passionate delivery, and a commitment and rare ability to connect her analysis with actionable recommendations for all meeting participants. In this knowledge economy when organizations across Canada face new challenges to recruit and retain key personnel, I think Kristen's analysis and presentation delivery is a must-have for organizations wanting to understand the bigger picture as well as the way forward.”
