"Recently our Meeting Planners International chapter had the pleasure and excitement of having Ms. Kristine Sexter of WorkWise Productions as our Monthly Guest Speaker.
While I am aware that as professional meeting planners we are often fortunate to work with great speakers, Ms. Sexter was extraordinary.
Specifically what made Ms. Sexter's presentation, "The Top Five Characteristics of Wildly Successful People (Caution: It Gets Really Wild!)" memorable was: "Kristine conducted customized and individualized pre-program marketing. All members of our chapter received a personalized postcard in the mail encouraging their attendance. This was followed by emails and lastly, personal phone calls to many of our members. She created quite a "buzz." This pre-program marketing was certainly one of the reasons for an above-average attendance.
" Ms. Sexter's material was poignant, timely and content-rich. It was obvious she knew our industry and applied the material to our strengths and challenges. Her delivery style was highly professional, poised and polished. Overwhelmingly, our members gave her, and the program, rave reviews.
"Here's the really incredible element: This program, "The Top Five Characteristics of Wildly Successful People (Caution: It Gets Really Wild!)" was the most unique, powerful and audience-pleasing program we have seen in a very long time. (Please call Kristine and ask her to tell you the secret as to why it "really does get wild!").
I would not hesitate to recommend and utilize Kristine as a speaker for any of our clients or management teams. She certainly will exceed your expectations!"- Amy Leet | President, OK Meeting Planners Int
