I wanted to write to you and let you know how much I loved working with you. Your background as a journalist, global hotel expert and a screenwriter is evident from the manner you conducted interviews and researched on trends in India in your unique style and passion. You were a pleasure to collaborate with. Not to mention, you are a great writer and a very well-respected professional by journalists. I would recommend you to anyone and everyone.
SudeepEVP, Hotels, India
I’ve worked with Kristina for more than five years. The freelance project management that she does for our firm is immensely helpful, and frees me up to focus on my direct responsibilities. What I can say about our working relationship is that Kristina “gets it.” Kristina is most adept at sensing how busy I am, and quickly adapts her style to what will serve my firm best. She can assess whether I prefer to discuss a matter in detail, or if I am buried and just want her to run with the decision making.
Thanks to her creativity, she helps my firm excel in areas where we otherwise could not. But most of all, her unwavering energy and passion continue to make our collaboration stimulating and fun.
LauroVice President, Research and Strategic Advisory, Hospitality Industry, USA
She is very organized. Her advanced preparation is considerable. Then, she lets me contribute as I like. Her follow-up in thorough, and her writing neatly summarizes what I wanted to explain. No hustle on word-processing at my end. That’s great.
TomManaging Director, Hospitality Industry, Japan
It was a great pleasure working with Kristina on a number of research projects. Her organization and structuring our key publication, the Hotel Investment Outlook, was essential in delivering an excellent piece of work. She was very diligent, reliable and clearly demonstrated her grasp of marketing and the hotel industry. Her positive and friendly attitude also make her a perfect team player. I hope we will get her help on future projects and in the meantime wish her all the best.

If it wasn’t for Kristina, I wouldn’t have a business. It’s as simple as that. She had a vision for my business long before I could wrap my brain around it, and became my staunchest advocate, editor, coach and bouncing board. In its four short months of existence, my business has achieved 600% growth above projections; I have a book deal with a renowned publisher in the space, and became a bona fide expert in what I do. Who would have thunk it? I didn’t. But Kristina did. That’s for sure.
