“Nice Girls Can Finish First”
Keynote Speaker: Christy Pruitt-Haynes
In middle school Christy Pruitt-Haynes was told, “you really want to do what you want to do”. Her response then is the same as it is now…doesn’t everybody! Later in life she realized that she had an entrepreneurial spirit long before she was an entrepreneur and luckily for her (and her teachers) she learned to use those skills to her benefit regardless of the situation she found herself in. Combining her desire to solve problems, strategic thinking and keen self-awareness with degrees in Personnel & Labor Relations and HR Development, and 20 Plus years of corporate and entrepreneurial experience, Christy is convinced that a little entrepreneurial spirit pushes us all towards excellence.
The Nashville Emerging Leader Award recipient and Pathway Women’s Business Center Advisory Board Member has held executive positions at Infiniti Americas/Nissan, CMT, and the Memphis Grizzlies. She is the founder of Christy Pruitt-Haynes Consulting (originally branded CORE Consulting) where she and her team offer innovative speaking, training, and coaching to help individuals and organizations of all sizes maximize their bottom lines by creating cultures of excellence.
Christy has displayed her expertise in leadership development, diversity, strategic planning and adulting through recent speaking, consulting, or service with Dollar General, Nissan, Rutherford County Cable, Montgomery Chamber of Commerce, SHRM, Auburn University, The Entrepreneur’s Center, the International Conference on Diversity, and many more.
When not shaping the industry’s best practices in strategy, diversity and effective leadership, you will likely find Christy laughing with her family, adding stamps in her passport with friends, or hunting for new cabernets to add to her list of favorites.
