“It’s rare to listen to a professional speaker that comes across as relatable as they are knowledgeable. I had the pleasure of listening to these qualities in K when they spoke. K dove deep into how to better understand individual identities and boundaries in order to create a more inclusive workplace. I was particularly impressed by K’s ability to navigate important and potentially “sensitive” topics candidly, and with sincerity, and nuance. Although this ability is rare, K has developed it masterfully. I would highly recommend K for any public speaking event where audience engagement and trust is needed!”
