"First, I want to thank Kris SO much for the torch he carries, and for the privilege of having him at our Summit in Boise. The simple fact that our room was at capacity with people standing in the back, and for the entire time Kris was talking you could have heard a pin drop, tells you how critical his message is. I have heard absolutely nothing but positive remarks regarding Kris’ keynote.
