Keynote Speaker - Kristie Stocker

What do you get when you mix one part energetic problem solver, with a generous portion of leadership expertise and a sprinkle of marathon running? You get Kristie Stocker — an award-winning professional speaker, success coach, leadership expert and Distinguished Toastmaster. 

Kristie is CEO of Kinetik Edge, a coaching and training company, that specializes in helping great professionals and executives become in-demand, awesome leaders. Kristie comes with 20 years of past experience in a marketing and communications background for a large corporation, so she knows a thing or three about working with different personalities, various teams and differing opinions (all under crazy deadlines).

She’s been teaching and mentoring driven professionals since 2002 on how to advance their self-leadership skills and take their success to unbelievable levels. She’s better known to her clients as the expert in helping them become excuse-breaking, fear-crushing, goal-exceeding leaders.

Kristie has walked the leadership walk in her five-year Toastmasters career too. She served as VP of Membership twice and her club achieved the President’s Distinguished award for the first time in its 17 year history under her leadership as President. She quickly moved up the ranks as District 28’s Area Director, Division Director and then Club Growth Director. This was after she won multiple speaking awards including second place at the District-level International Speech contest.

Her claim to fame is a seemingly never-ending (mostly non-caffeinated) supply of energy because fun is the name of her game. When she’s not training for her next race, traveling to new adventures or coaching high-achieving professionals and companies, she's helping audience members create seriously fun success.
