Erika Napoletano holds no fancy titles and is an expert at nothing except screwing up royally and learning from her mistakes. As the person behind the RedheadWriting online persona, she’s been hailed by Forbes as a “spinless spin doctor” for her BS-free perspectives on business, marketing, branding, and life in general. She’s the Head Redhead at RHW Media, a Boulder-based branding group, where she works with companies from all walks of life to keep them from looking like idiots online (and whatever that might entail). She’s a twice-published author, including The Power of Unpopular (Wiley 2012), a columnist for Entrepreneur Magazine, and speaks at conferences across the U.S. on the inherent power of truth in business… or as she refers to it, the power of unpopularity. You can learn more about her at www.erikanapoletano.com.
Alena Grabowski earned her Ph.D. from the University of Colorado Boulder Locomotion Laboratory in 2007 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Biomechatronics Group at MIT in 2011. She seeks to better understand the interaction of physiology and biomechanics during human locomotion; specifically how the implementation of wearable mechanical devices, such as prostheses and exoskeletons, influence walking, running, hopping, and sprinting.
Christin Myrick comes from a long line of disasters, adventures and ass-whoopin’s. Mucking through a childhood of disturbing alcoholism, violence, and sexual abuse, she persevered through the many stages of healing.
She went on a journey that took her around the world, and back. It took her down to the deepest part of who we are, and back again. Along the way she uncovered the secrets of pain, purpose and passion. She came out the other side in wholeness and discovered the exquisite potential of our relationships.
Now, she is a Men’s Consultant and writer, bequeathing the information garnered along her path in spectacular workshops for men so they may create meaningful relationships that last.
Christin doesn’t have any snazzy credentials, except for her life, connections and the inspiring experiences that shaped her. She thinks it is important that you know she is an adamant believer in the power of compassion as well as in all the delight that is pink frosting.
