Barbara Fittipaldi
Board member, Governance Board Global Women's Leadership Network and CEO, Center for New Futures.

She is intelligent, empathic, and an amazing communicator. Her experience crosses a wide array of products and industries. A great combination of idealist and practical, she always is amazing to work with.

Dave Prescott
We worked together  •  Owner, Creative Director, B12 Design. Previously Creative Director, Confoti, Inc..
I have worked with Dave on several projects over the past 15 years. His design approach and philosophy are comprehensive and go well beyond ... the branding or visual design of a product. I hired him as our Creative Director for our start-up Confoti. He was able to effortlessly work and communicate with the entire staff which ranged from manufacturing production staff through the CTO. He is able to balance design needs with the pressures of a startup. I highly recommend him!

Chris Shipley
Research Fellow, Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute and Director, Versaic.
I have always admired and respected Chris' prescient vision of business and technology trends. She's been the go to person to understand the ... landscape of vision and technologies being developed in Silicon Valley. I don't often see this quality written about her... she's a phenomenal person. She'll grab a lunch to bounce ideas off of and network, and she's humble. My personal experience was her initial review of one of my start-ups was a total thumbs down. A year later, she re-evaluated her position, and we were on the front page of the DEMO newsletter. That is how a leader shows up!

Jess Gibson
Software Engineering Program Manager, Barnes & Noble. Previously Senior Engineer Project Manager, webOS. Utah State grad.
While Jess is certainly one of the best program and project managers, he excelled in our startup taking on any new responsibility that was n ... eeded. He was the epitome of "wearing many hats" in a startup. He was officially our Business Operations Manager, and he always took every chance to learn and grow.

Kurt Piersol
Lead Engineer, Apple. Previously Principal Engineer, Amazon Lab126.
While Kurt at first glance works inside large corporations, on closer inspection, it's more often than not a start-up group or division with ... in the company. He is one of the most brilliant technologists I know. He once wrote that I was the person he most enjoyed saying his ideas were wrong. I will reverse the compliment here.
