Karin is one of the most driven professionals I have ever met. Her ability to negotiate, define and solve problems, and communicate effectiv ... ely to wide audience of professionals is inspiring. When she takes the company she starts to IPO I am purchasing the stock as soon as it becomes available.

Sharrifah Al-Salem, CFA, MBA
They're my school  •  Co-Founder + CEO, BrightDay. Previously Director, Investor Relations, Xoom Corporation, A PayPal Service.
I have been impressed with Sharrifah from day one. She is the type of person you want in your lifeboat. I worked with her on a number of pro ... jects in business school, and was amazed by how smart she is, how good of a teacher she is (I needed it!), how ambitious she is, and how on top of everything she is. She is the reason BrightDay is even happening, and her enormous drive to make it succeed is why I believe in her and the company.

David Firth-Eagland
Sr. Director, Live Service Management - World Wide Customer Experience, Electronic Arts (EA).
David's energy is infectious...you just want to join him in whatever he is doing because of his visionary and thoughtful leadership as well ... as his continual optimism, even when challenges arise. He is an excellent brainstorming partner and is full of creative ideas.

Ryan Blood, PhD, MBA

Ryan is the epitome of someone that continues to surprise...and in the best ways possible. He has one of the sharpest minds and wits of anyo ... ne I've ever worked with. You want this guy on any team you're on because of his creativity, his adaptability, and his strong yet warm leadership. Plus, he's just super fun to be around! I sincerely miss working with and being around him.
