I most enjoyed the personal stories, the good quotes tips, filling out the goal sheets and deciding what the steps to make them happen are. I really enjoyed this and will be going home tonight and trying to map out what I will do to make my #1 goal come true.

Kristen presented and led the Life Mapping activity at Torch Community’s inaugural Health & Wellness event for Twin Cities Young Professionals. Kristen’s content and exercises on minimizing stress were tremendously educational and engaging. Kristen is easy to work with and incredibly knowledgeable – and able to deliver that knowledge to a diverse audience. I would recommend Kristen for any type of group and look forward to working with her again in the future.
I loved that it was interactive and I took away some concrete steps I can take to skyrocket my business.
I can’t say enough about Kristen Brown! She is an amazing woman who has been through so much in her lifetime. The experiences she shared with my team were motivating, inspiring and heartwarming. We laughed and cried! She truly is an expert on how to manage personal and professional stress and shares her tips and insights on how to do so and get the most out of life. Kristen was able to tailor her presentation so that it related well to the issues my team faces every day. The feedback I received from my team was incredibly positive and all in attendance were able to immediately put her suggestions into action. We learned so much from Kristen and will definitely invite her back again. She’s wonderful!

I attended the NIHCA conference and went to both your keynote presentation and breakout session (I was the guy who went on the “boat ride” with you). I’m sure you get lots of kudos after these presentations, but I’ve been to lots of conferences with many speakers, and yours was one of the best. It was funny, interactive, and motivating, but most importantly you had practical, specific, and relevant information with specific action steps. I heard a speaker last year and after an hour I could not think of one thing I heard that wasn’t a general anecdote or just a catch phrase. I brought two of my staff who thoroughly enjoyed it too. Your great sense of humor toward the trials of daily life is a skill for you and a gift to others.
Loved your keynote today at BSC. It was great to hear you again! I look forward to implementing the 3 R’s, RISE and REV into my work and personal life – thank you!
Kristen was our luncheon general keynote speaker in at our Minnesota Premier CIO Forum last December. Her personality is wonderful, charismatic and positive. The overall session was perfect and what our audience needed. She used humor, was positive and energetic with delivery. There wasn’t one person that wasn’t paying attention. We will be asking Kristen to join in other cities as the response was well received. I highly recommend Kristen for your company as a motivational speaker.

I want to follow-up and let you know how extremely impressed I was by your presentation on the Happy Hour Effect to the Women’s Leadership Group. In all the years I’ve attended presentations yours by far for me was the most enlightening and well worth my time! You were clear, concise, relatable, genuine and overall great presenter. Most importantly I was able to strongly identify with the message that was being delivered. Some points were logical and common sense – with quite a few ah-ha moments for me – THANK YOU! At times when you go to church and you feel like the sermon was about or for you specifically – this is how I felt about your presentation. Although I have not yet started, I’m very excited to read your book “The Happy Hour Effect.” Thank you again for your time and I hope to see you on campus again as your message is a valuable one to be heard.
After working with Kristen, I feel more of a sense of control. Both over certain things in my schedule and just knowing I can help recover from things that are stressful or negative that I can’t control.
Thank you SO very much for our Energy Session! It was so insightful! I can’t wait to incorporate more of these practices into my life and align more with my true self. Thank you!!
You are so wonderful! We seriously can’t thank you enough! You are truly a joy to work with and we all felt your presentation exceeded our expectations. We felt that you were a huge part of making our event a success! I had many people come by and say they loved your session, you were so engaging and thought provoking – and funny! Plus I really appreciated the Robert Downy Jr. slide! You brought our content to the next level and we were so excited to see the group so engaged. We couldn’t have been happier!!
Kristen Brown is a change-maker, empowering audiences to overcome any type of stress and anxiety to make their world what it “could be” and reach their full potential! Kristen has overcome unimaginable stress and is an inspiration to all of us that we can turn adversity around and transform our lives into something beautiful! Kristen is energetic and outgoing and cares about results. She is dedicated to help others be successful.
Amazing, energetic and relatable. Walked away feeling energized, not guilty and weighed down which is interesting because I came in thinking it would be the same old, same old. Very impressed.
I have worked with Kristen for several years and in several capacities. I have been a student in her classroom, served with her on two boards for professional organizations, invited her to speak in my classroom at St. Catherine University and I even hired her to help me develop my business platform! With every interaction, Kristen was an innovative and resourceful addition to the conversation. In many situations, she was the burst of creativity and knowledge that was desperately needed. She isn’t simply someone who brings her own ideas to the table and tells people what to think. She sets people up to continuously generate new and practical ideas for success on their own!

I was totally blown away – the content, the action focus of the talk, your style/sense of humor/etc.! It really was amazing. I have spent 22 years in big corporate America and you honestly were the best speaker I’ve experienced.

Kristen spoke at our worksite about the hot topic of stress and work/life balance. Armed with real-life experience and an appreciated sense of humor, Kristen guided us through the effects that stress has on the body as well as our relationships with and well-being of our co-workers, family members and friends. We came away with a new perspective on stress along with realistic, effective action items to apply to combat stress at work and at home. The employees really enjoyed the presentation and found tremendous value in it. As far as employee wellness, Kristen is a great investment!
Kristen spoke eloquently and beautifully about her journey of grief and healing after the unexpected death of her husband at the age of 30. Kristen’s ability to connect to everyone in the audience, from families who had also experienced the loss of a loved one to transplant recipients and caregivers, was phenomenal. Not only did Kristen speak from her heart about her own experience, she was also able to seamlessly weave in practical tips on how to care for ourselves and not let stress overtake our lives.

Kristen is my branding coach. She has equipped me with great tools to help clarify my goals and wants for my business as well as helps me strategize and break down goals into do-able steps from session to session. I have felt “confused” on where to go in my business and Kristen as really helped me feel more confident in the next steps to take to get where I want to go! I love working with Kristen!
The Life Map exercise was really an eye-opener. Taking time to think about the things in life I enjoy and using those to help fight stress gave me some great tools to use in everyday life. The whole goal-setting process was broken down to the point I could really understand what my next step was.
Kristen shares actionable and realistic tips to be successful in work and life. Her passion for her work shined during her presentation and the audience really enjoyed her insights. Her Life Mapping exercise is a powerful way to shift the balance between stress and energy – and it’s fun too. Kristen is a wise investment.

We were blessed to have Kristen speak at our Vikings Women quarterly meeting and to present to our staff and extended Vikings family. Kristen was fantastic! Her message was relevant, authentic, informative, entertaining and inspiring. Her ability to connect with the group and to move them to take action was evident by the tremendous amount of feedback I received after the event – thanking me for bringing Kristen in and sharing how much they enjoyed her! I would highly recommend Kristen, to anyone considering having her speak at your event, and would say get on her busy calendar and reserve your time with her asap! Thank you Kristen.
Kristen’s not only a pleasure to work with, but her knowledge and marketing expertise is in a class of its own. She brings energy and positivity to every situation making her a natural-born leader. She is a valuable asset to any company looking to promote their product or brand.
Kristen Brown’s presentations to 300 Staff was a huge success. She used an engaging story and effective handouts to empower everyone to reduce stress. Kristen offered excellent tips reinforced with practical examples throughout the ninety minute session. Participants left with their minds stimulated and a map to address their own personal “stressors.” A session with Kristen would be a wise investment for any organization.
I liked her authenticity. She has an amazing and inspiring story and it makes me feel like I can do the hard things that I am scared of trying.
Stress is something that affects every aspect of your life. As a Leader of company, you naturally carry a lot of stress. Managing that stress can not only make you healthier, but it can make a big business impact. Kristen Brown’s presentation was phenomenal! Her presentation was engaging, interesting, and was very applicable to my life and business. You walked out of the presentation with real things you can do to make an impact. I highly recommend Kristen Brown.
After participating in Kristen’s workshop, not only did it open up communication on my team but also brought renewed focus on goals and priorities. She grounding us with ways to overcome challenges to drive the business. She is also very entertaining but with a practical sensibility – just what you want in a professional speaker.
I liked that it felt like Kristen was TALKING to you, not presenting!
Time you spend with Kristen will be a great investment. She is an amazing talent with the ability to help people see what they can’t and to pull out your best brand story. She has helped me gain clarity, focus and create the right brand messaging. I highly recommend Kristen to reinvigorate your brand or if you are starting something new!

Kristen Brown is an amazing speaker that knows how to connect with any audience. I think that is because she has such a wealth of corporate and marketing knowledge and understands that dynamic. She’s worked for and with some of the top corporations in the nation. She’s built her own business and she understands sales better than anyone I’ve ever met. Kristen will engage your audience and not only that, she will push them to think differently about what they can accomplish! I highly recommend Kristen Brown for your next event.
I was already doing some of her suggestions, but her Life Map exercise helped me further clarify what’s important to me and how I can move forward with what I really want. I gained momentum and confidence in the direction I’m taking with my career.
Kristen spoke to our Women’s Mentoring Network group and was the perfect set-up for our program. She was quickly able to synch up with the group through her energetic and honest presentation. Her tips and Life Mapping exercise helped the attendees shift their thinking in preparation for the rest of our event and her passion for spinning stress into success rubbed off on the audience. Kristen added further value to the session by participating in our Q&A session with the group. I definitely recommend Kristen to any organization who wants to inspire action in their employees.
