Kris Young Director Speakers and Entertainment

Kris has spent her career developing and creating experiences that engage people with a company’s vision. She gets joy out of delighting an audience and seeing events support and deliver on a company’s strategy.

Her 20-plus years in the event world taught her that audiences love great ideas and memorable experiences which are catapulted through thought-provoking speakers and exciting entertainment. As Director of Speakers & Entertainment, Kris works in Minneapolis with the Production Team to create experiences that strengthen the relationships between brands and the people who matter most to them.

Kris was named the National Speakers Association Meeting Partner of the Year (she, in fact, retired the award!). Kris is also coauthor of Never by Chance: Aligning People and Strategy Through Intentional Leadership. Outside of work, Kris loves to cook for family and friends. She enjoys any activity on the water. Also for fun — live music. Anytime. Anywhere.
