Kerry’s coaching skills are superb and authentic, and it has been a privilege for me to have her as my trusted advisor.

We had the exciting opportunity to pull together as one marketing team, following a merger. We hired Vivid Connections to lead our team in a 2-day offsite facilitating exercises in change management, team building, and visioning. It was an awesome couple of days, and a great start to our team coming together. Vivid kept the flow of the 2 days engaging and entertaining and our newly formed team responded beautifully. It exceeded our expectations and we plan to work with them again.
