Ela is not only inspirational, but gave me the motivation I needed to believe in myself again. I had the privilege to attend a conference where Ela had shared her vision, and words of wisdom for all who were there that wanted more for their future. Ela truly speaks from the heart. She is a mom, wife, coach and mentor who believes in YOU, and I thank her for reminding me not to let the world we live in try to pull me down, and to Rise Up… because I am worthy, and I have gained the confidence to realize my worth.

I had the pleasure of attending Crystals session at Perspective 360 Transformation Retreat. Vibrant, dynamic, engaging are some of the few words I can use to describe Crystal. Her message on "losing limiting belief" served as a reminder that if you just believe, all things are possible. Thank you, Crystal, for shifting our mindsets to a place of success. Amazing! There are greater things ahead in the future.

Avril Riley, BCom. MA. (Doctoral Student, EdD)Founder: Women in Business and Leadership (WIBL)


When I went to hear Ela speak in St. Louis, I was surprised by how much her personal story resonated with me. I was drawn in and wanted to hear more. I wanted to know how she over came all those struggles to become the woman she is today. Now that I’ve gotten to know her I can say Ela is one of the most genuine and relatable people you’ll ever meet.

Terri - Red Deer, Alberta, Canada


The two words that are top of mind when describing Crystal are engaging and motivational. Not only is Crystal's energy is infectious, but she is also able to transmit that energy in her workshops and when delivering a keynote presentation to large audiences. I've had the pleasure of attending 2 of her Design Your Dreamz workshops and was very impressed with not only the workshop preparation and format but the pre-workshop touch points and post-workshop follow-up. Her passion and enthusiasm shine through in everything she does!

Lianna Carlyle, PMP, CSM Niagara Health Systems - Workforce Management & Compensation


I have seen Ela Whitaker speak on multiple occasions in a professional conference. She speaks authentically and with contagious enthusiasm. Ela inspires her audience to engage in their business with passion. Ela has an amazing amount of inspiration and knowledge to share. I will continue to seek her out at future professional development.

Melissa - Chicago Ridge, Illinois, USA


Within five minutes of conversing with Crystal, one realizes just how passionate, forward-thinking, and dedicated she is to the whole experience, not just the act, of customer service. She fully understands her field, having gained her zealous viewpoint from industry experience and years of intense training in the art of delivering top-notch service. She deeply cares about the success of her clients as evident in her desire to instill the appropriate skills to help them provide the best customer "experience" possible. Heavily committed to volunteering in her community, especially for programs that support the leadership development of children, Crystal is truly a well-rounded professional. I recommend her without hesitation.
