GENTLEMEN

Do you ever feel like you have to be everything for everyone all of the time?

Do you desire to pause, breathe and rest more, you just haven't done so?

Do you desire to connect with other men?

Do you, at times, feel like you have to hide your emotions?

Do you desire to have more fun?

If you answered, yes to one of the above, Candid Conversations is for you!


Dr. Guillory recognizes that men don’t often get the opportunity just to be, as there is so much pressure on them. And she desires to provide a space to BE.

Check out this Candid Conversations Video Overview PLUS Why you should attend!

Conversations

WITH DR. KRISTEN GUILLORY

"Was blessed with the opportunity to attend [Candid Conversations] last night and I must say to all my brothers out there if ever the chance comes around again to go, it’s a must. Met a lot of great people and learned a lot about self value self healing and self love"

In 2016, it was put on Dr. Guillory's heart to provide a space for men to just be. And thus, Candid Conversations debuted! 

 

The feedback from the men was amazing! I would go on to host 3 more events tailored to men and after some encouragement and listening to the Lord, I have decided to bring it BACK!!!

Hey Hey,
Gentlemen, I'm Dr. Kristen Guillory

I have such a heart for men and am so excited to host this experience just for you! I've been supporting men in some way for the last 20+ years!

From the majority of the participants in my youth program being boys to my dissertation being on the school completion and drop out among Black men, to being the first woman speaker in many male spaces, to working with college male athletes to being able to support, mentor and coach some of the most amazing men, I’ve been honored. And I am honored to support you at the next Candid Conversations event!

“Dr. G has a powerful ability to hear and affirm men.”

“Candid Conversations was the most powerful experience I have ever attended”

“It was amazing to be in a space with other men and we were truly transparent with one another.”

"Dr. G has a way of making me feel safe, heard and affirmed. As a Black man that is priceless. She has changed my life"

"One thing that Dr. G did for my life personally, was to help transform my confidence. I'll never forget when she told me that "you have a gift, and you need to honor your gift". Those words changed my life. I have never been more confident in my speaking abilities and I owe a ton of credit to Dr. Guillory."

- Tim Nichols

“If anyone has a problem with a woman being at the helm of this event, remember it was a woman that Jesus told that He resurrected. So it makes perfect sense that this gifted woman is leading this movement.”

"Dr. G is wonderful at transforming lives. She loves people intensely, and her excellence is reflected in her detailed preparation. She creates an experience to transform your life to live your dreams. She doesn't allow you to live in the mediocrity that comes when we deceive ourselves about what the real issue is" - David Charles Griffith
