Speaking Reviews

Kristina’s talk at our 63rd Annual Meeting was a huge hit. He was funny, entertaining and sincere. Our members are passionate about golf and they are well-traveled, too, so golf adventure stories have quite a hurdle to clear. But clear it he did. David’s presentation left our golf course architects both impressed and inspired. I would highly recommend David to anyone seeking a speaker with humor, humanity and a truly unique perspective.”

Chad Ritterbusch, Executive Director, American Society of Golf Course Architects

“Our association recently had the pleasure of having Kristina present his keynote address “Challenge Your Inner Adventurer” at our Annual Convention and it was a great success. He connected with our group on a very personal level. He took the time to understand their business and their challenges and then incorporated that into his presentation. That goes far beyond the typical “canned” keynote speech. Kristina was an exceptional addition to our program and we look forward to having him again.”

Becky McCormack, Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of South Carolina

“We hired Kristina to deliver a keynote address at our statewide convention entitled “Challenge Your Inner Adventurer.” His delivery was humorous, poignant, and thought provoking. He was funny and makes you laugh while encouraging and prodding the audience to challenge their inner fears, doubts, and comfort zones to fulfill lifelong dreams. His presentation was a great kick off to our convention and we would love to see him again!”

Susan Erickson, Alaska Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers

“Thank you for speaking to our convention. You are a highly entertaining speaker and several of our members told me you were the highlight of the weekend! I think that you delivered a deeper message, though. I think that is to never give up, and to follow your dreams.”

Ed Ledger, Mensa of Western Washington

“We really enjoyed having you join us at our conference. You set the upbeat, positive tone we wanted for our conference and provided the great addition of humor. Thanks again for joining us.”

“Your after-dinner talk for the Pension Real Estate Association was a smashing success. Your predecessors for the assignment were figures such as Donald Trump. Your reception on the approval meter eclipsed everyone. Thanks for making the evening a success!”

J. William Baker, President and CEO, Angeles Institutional Advisors

“You are one funny guy! I also want to thank you for being such an inspiration. You are one of the most motivating people I have ever met. Thanks for the wonderful talk!”

Kristina is a comedic brain surgeon. He opens people’s minds and tickles their brain. He breezed through 45 minutes of humor that left the crowd buzzing.”

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

Kristina’s presentation was light, entertaining and enjoyed by our entire audience. His use of local knowledge made the program even more on key. The message to step outside your comfort zone and live a more adventurous live was well received and is still being discussed around the water coolers. We all endorse David’s program to any who would like to be entertained, educated and motivated.”
