With so many women in this group harboring aspirations of speaking and consulting professionally, it made sense to chat with a woman who set out to do just that on her own over twenty years ago. We chat with Kristin Skarie about her independent roots, her transformation into a confident “sage on the stage,” and what’s next for her as she seeks to make another career transition.

Kristin is the cofounder of Betterteams, and has been an independent speaker and consultant for over twenty years. She is also the author of “A Year of Nothing New,” and is a fervent conservationist.
