Krista Walsh, Speaker during the Interactive Breakout Session – Good Mentoring vs Bad.
September 20, 2018 at the Confederation Centre; Charlottetown, PEI
Krista Walsh was a failure. At twenty years old she had been fired three times in six months from her career as a dental assistant. As she had to re-evaluate her career path (and face unemployment), Krista moved back home with her parents to work in her family’s home heating business.
Driven by the fear of failure, she studied and researched account receivable strategies and policies. In 2007 Walsh became the first Canadian graduate of the International Center for Collection Professionals which aided her when she opened the doors of her own credit and resource company “KC Collect!”, the first and only woman owned collection agency in Atlantic Canada.
Today Krista is a multifaceted entrepreneur, author and speaker with businesses spanning from debt collection to fitness. She has been named an Emerging Leader for Atlantic Canada (twice), Chamber of Commerce’s Entrepreneur of the Year, Canada Association of Professional Speaker’s Rising Star and has developed into one of Canada’s leading young entrepreneurs.
