Changing Mindsets on
Mental Illness & Neurodiversity

Meet Kristin Light

Keynote speaker, senior engagement strategist & former vintage dance specialist Kristin Light has split her multi-decade eclectic career between the boardroom and the ballroom.

As a vivacious showgirl and co-founder of a successful events company, she was perhaps the last person you’d expect to be dealing with multiple physical, mental, and cognitive disorders. But following a brush with suicide that left her confined to a psychiatric ward, she now speaks out to provide real insight and practical strategies that demystify the facts surrounding mental illness and neurodiversity including inspirational (and often hilarious)  stories from her own personal and professional life.

Kristin brings a refreshing honesty and relatability to the subject of mental health.

Her unique insight into depression and burnout is equally matched by her electric energy, engaging stories and actionable learning outcomes.

Kristin was amazing. She was wonderful to have on the stage.

I have worked with Kristin in a number of capacities, and I have always been impressed with her.

Kristin: On behalf of our team, I want to thank you so much for your workshop on Neurodiversity!
