Meet Chris Heeter

Chris’ Wild life serves as the canvas for her speaking and team building programs. She freely admits that much of what she’s learned about humanity comes from dogs and rivers—from her team of 16 sled dogs, who she helped breed, raise, and train, to her decades of guiding whitewater canoe trips. Combined, they create the perfect back-drop for memorable, easy to apply, lasting, and life-changing tools for individuals, teams, leaders, and organizations.

There’s nothing like hearing a group of bankers or IT professionals—among many others– call out words that come to mind when they are feeling Wild, and then diving into how to welcome and greatly benefit from letting that Wild side be present at work.
