I am so excited to see and support you!
I recognize that men don’t often get the opportunity just to be as there is so much pressure on you. In 2016, it was put in my 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!!!
WITH DR. KRISTEN GUILLORY
I HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING MEN IN VARIOUS WAYS FOR
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.
I also recognize, per the words of many men, that I have a gift and I am excited to use this gift for you!

“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."

“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
