what people are saying
"From the moment I approached Christina Crook to discuss the opportunity of hosting a DRIVE session she was nothing but professional, engaged, and extremely collaborative. Christina created a presentation specifically for DRIVE which was all about building awareness when it comes to social media consumption. Christina skillfully helped attendees glimpse into how they passively consume media and reevaluate their consumption through articulating their values.
Christina has an ability to connect with people immediately and finds commonalities that make her extremely relatable. Christina’s relatability was key in helping breaking down the shyness in the room successfully leading to vulnerable and open conversations between attendees. The session was flawlessly executed. It received much positive feedback from attendees--so much so that I had colleagues anecdotally bringing up points from the session in conversations months later."

"I recently had the privilege of moderating a panel that Christina participated in for Ivy League students. She brought a high level of professionalism to the panel, as well as a wealth of knowledge in the field of journalism. She is undoubtedly an expert in her field, and is a pleasure to work with and learn from!”

“I love how present you were. It means a lot when someone comes and really embraces the event and delves deep into connecting with people."

"Thank you for last night. We loved your talk. It hit the mark on every level and was just the perfect thing we were looking for. My leadership team met for a brief de-brief after. This was our last Leaders Circle, breaking for the summer and re-convening in the fall, so we felt it was the highlight of the year and a great way to go out with a huge bang. Everything you said was so rich and full. I would like to explore possibly bringing you up to Ottawa for something larger in 2017."
- Terry Long, Founder, Quiet Pools Leaders Circle, Ottawa
