Testimonials

“You were the heart and soul of yesterday’s Summit. We express our gratitude for all you’ve done to make the event such a success. Many people told us – and are still telling us – that it was the best Summit ever, and I know that a lot of that is because of the enthusiasm and compassion you demonstrated in every one of your sessions. Thank you for everything you did to help us conceive, plan, organize, and deliver this successful event. You helped us identify and recruit some of our best presenters (including yourself!). And you were the one who lit up the audience with your provocative and inspiring keynote and closing panel remarks.”
— Clif Harald, Boulder Economic Council

“Kendra delivered one of the most talked-about sessions during the 2018 Spring CGAIT conference. She inspired our members, gave them the push they needed to take their hiring to the next level and left them with a greater perspective on building a team with “no jerks”. She did her research on our industry and also delivered hands-on tactics our members could take home and implement right away. Kendra is a brilliant speaker and personable individual. Funny, motivating, relatable and knowledgeable.”
— Amanda Bay, PMP | Colorado Government Association of Information Technology

“Tremendous speaker – everyone was engaged and the advice was actionable. Thank you!”
— Google Inc.

“I can’t thank you enough for coming and presenting such relevant information. Every attendee left with something. 2 things jumped out at me. You live what you preach. This gave you instant credibility. I also liked how you were able to reconcile 2 somewhat conflicting values – family-friendly and results. Some people preach culture more naively. I see your more realistic model as a key reality of building a healthy culture. Finally, your model of situational leadership is so lucid. Makes complete sense. Many other key takeaways but these resonated with me.”
— Dave Scarola | Chief Experience Officer | The Alternative Board

“Kendra Prospero is such an authentic and engaging speaker that we were lucky to have her moderate such a powerful panel of experienced and thought-provoking leaders. Her inspirational message was peppered with humor and bursting with motivation towards self-reflection and positive change. Kendra has the amazing ability to resonate with and transform her audience – the mark of a truly inspirational speaker.”
Julian Ramlal | Boulder Startup Week

“We highly recommend Kendra Prospero as a keynote speaker and workshop facilitator. We brought Kendra in for the La Junta Chamber of Commerce’s annual banquet and Kendra was engaging and high energy while delivering her message. It has been several months since the event and I still have people stopping me to tell me how much they enjoyed Kendra’s speech. Kendra has her finger on the pulse of business and can deliver a speech that resonates with business leaders.”
— Ryan Stephens, Executive Director | La Junta Economic Development

“Kendra is a powerhouse. She clearly loves what she does and her presentation on how to ‘pitch’ yourself and get tactical about landing the dream client or job was an incredibly popular talk.”
— Mandaline Godown, Founder | SHYFTco & Be Bold Studio

“Kendra did an incredible job presenting information on finding a job you love to our alumni. Her big-picture thinking about focusing on defining your why and values in general is instrumental to the success of our audience. She explains how to define what you want to have vs what you would like to have and why knowing the difference between those two are important. In general, Kendra was enthusiastic, a great speaker, kept our audience engaged and had incredible reviews from the 100+ in attendance.”
— Heather Hanson, Director of Engagement | Leeds School of Business

“We appreciate Kendra’s closing keynote on the importance of culture in any organization. Her expertise and advice helped our attendees understand how to create that perfect culture. Thank you for your insight!”
— Heidi Peterson, Executive Director | Colorado Chamber of Commerce Executives 

“Many thanks to you and your team for your fabulous presentation yesterday! Great information, lots of insider tips, excellent focusing techniques, all wrapped up in an engaging format that helped energize our 50+ networking group. Your thoughtful, honest and respectful answers to some of the more pointed questions were spot on, and your fresh approach inspired the group which was obvious by the buzz in the room. Though I teach job search techniques every day, I got lots of new insights and hints that I plan to pass on to our clients.”
— Deb Blankenship, Employment and Training Specialist at Workforce Boulder County

“Kendra was very genuine and authentic. Her personal story was very relevant to the audience as well as her tips for working women.”
— Nancy Walsh, Member Services Director at Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce

“Kendra gave a very informative and engaging presentation to a room of young professionals/entrepreneurs in the Boulder area. Once it was announced that she would be the speaker at this event, registrations immediately started coming in and we were able to completely fill up the room to capacity. I would recommend Kendra and her team at Turning The Corner to anyone looking to grow or advance in their current career or hoping to build the skills necessary to get them that dream job they’ve been seeking! We really appreciate Kendra’s time and energy and look forward to many other events with her and the company in the future.”
— Matthew J. Klieforth, Bolder Young Professionals Vice President

“Kendra delivered an energetic talk about helping people identify their passions by leading an engaging and diverse panel discussion. Attendees walked away with tangible actions to pursue their goals. Thank you for your insight and support of our community.”
— Will Misko, Community Leader
