About Me

Hello, I'm christina

An award-winning business and leadership strategist and TEDx speaker, I am known for empowering and steering emerging leaders toward higher impact, increased visibility and recognition, and greater career satisfaction. Armed with the superpowers of keen problem-solving abilities, laser focus, and stellar communication skills, I have served as the go-to consultant for high-profile clients and their audiences such as the NBA, The Walt Disney Company, and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Whether she’s working with individuals or organizations, Christina’s innate ability to turn scattered thoughts and ideas into a clear, achievable vision and strategic solution shine through in every client she advises.

Among her many accomplishments, Christina is most proud of leading her clients to success (on their terms) to realize increased impact, career alignment,  and launch and grow platforms as successful business and thought leaders. 

When it comes to showing women and professionals of color how to pivot and advance in the workplace, no one does it better than Christina Joy Whittaker, founder and CEO of Pivot Brand Group and the KNOWN Live conference series.
