I personally enjoyed Kelly's presentation at the ZOOM Business & Entrepreneurship Career Day, it was very much directed to the students in terms of using stories they can relate to. Often times presenters speak above the students heads, but Kelly was very personable and came across as genuinely passionate about empowering youth to strive for excellence, follow their passions and reach for their dreams.

Anton Milardovic, Teacher, St. Benedict CSS

Kelly’s presentation style is very poised and your message captured the attention of the room best of the morning's speakers in my opinion - I enjoyed hearing the gasp and chuckles when you joked that millennials are now entering their thirties and are basically old news ;) Her point of view is refreshing and it was great to hear it first hand.

Navin Chand, Principal PM Microsoft

One of the real eye openers for me was seeing that the values of today’s high achieving young talent are far from the traditional executive we know. Kelly’s expertise on managing and getting the most out of the youngest is so relevant for corporate leaders at every level

We wanted to follow up to thank Kelly for visiting the Fall program last weekend. Our participants have been scheduling coffees and emailing each other since the program ended and some of the credit has to go to Kelly's great talk.

Kelly's enthusiasm to share her experiences was palpable and our (emerging) entrepreneurs left her talk with a better sense of the hard work and great rewards that entrepreneurs can achieve. Please give her our thanks and appreciation!

Nelson Igunma, Co-founder, 3 Day Start-Up New York

Kelly in hopes that her motivating words would help inspire more youth to take an active role in the protection and enhancement of their local environment. She did not disappoint! Kelly spoke from the heart – connecting with the audience by sharing the defining moments in her life that fueled her passion for youth engagement. Her message of believing in oneself and striving for positive change resonated with the youth and enlightened them on the true meaning of community volunteerism and engagement.
