My life has been full of experiences. I've served in customer success roles, administrative roles, learning and development roles, communications and marketing roles, and along the way, I've had the opportunity to work with amazing people who have taught me a tremendous amount about work and life. I'm a continuous learner. I always seek opportunities that will challenge me, teach me, and give me an opportunity to share knowledge. I'm rarely settled - always wanting to expand my horizons, infuse creativity in my work, and stretch my mind beyond the boundaries I've unconsciously created for myself. I'm a human being who loves connection. I believe in a people-focused approach to life and I believe that sometimes life makes that hard. Every personality test I've ever taken will tell you I'm an extrovert but the truth is, I need calm and tranquility more often than I need socialization. When asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" my answer remains the same now as it did decades ago. I don't know. And doesn't that sound exciting?View the profile
I am so excited to introduce two of probably the most fun people that I've ever met Kurtis Karn and Nicole Turchin of Sunshine & 79. They develop workshops that focus on taking a buzzword and sharing them in a light-hearted interactive fun and approachable way. They work with teams across the United States who need time away from their desk to laugh share and do some learning along the way here is Kurtis and Nicole. Hi everyone. Thank you. Don't have a guy. I hope everyone can see my screen. I can't see you but we are so excited
to be here today, Kelsey. You did an awesome job, Erica, Patrick. You guys are knocking it out of the park today. So thanks for having us today. We're going to talk to you about connecting and learning virtually the world that we are living in right now. So we are excited to talk to you about this topic. And before we get started, I'm going to let Kurtis introduce himself, and then I'll take the stabbing introducing me. It's a call and thank you everybody for having us here today. So excited to be here on this virtual stage. What a cool place to be on a great day. Like
Nicole said, my name is Kurtis and I am a part of this team because if we have here is like home by self. I have a 10 + Years background in Human Resources specifically on Town and Acquisitions side, but I shoot passion for me is company culture and from between the call myself just making better humans across the board and doing what we can to hopefully make a little bit of fun in some people's lives and hopefully in the workplace, as well as I, mentioned earlier this year Sunshine & 79 the company that Curtis and I co-created
