Past Speaking Events


  • “This year I invited Kelly to come and address over 850 students at our TEDxStMaryCSSchool event. I expected an amazing talk, but what I got was so much more. Kelly blew the audience of grades 7-12 students away with her uplifting and powerful message on the true power of YOUth. She showed the students that the possibilities are endless if you work hard and believe in yourself. Kelly is a dynamic, exciting and energetic speaker who instantly draws the audience in with her words and her genuine demeanor. In the end students who heard her talk told me that they “felt excited by the possibilities” and “Kelly’s talk made me believe that I can do anything if I believe in me”. The way in which Kelly connects to her audience is amazing and her message will reach people of all ages making them believe that the possibilities are endless.”

  • You [Kelly] spoke with passion and direction. I think that many high school students can relate the passion you speak with, however, not many understand how to direct that passion. You engaged them with your passion, then opened up new “directions” that they could go with their passions. In addition, I love that the message you sent came at a time in life when most people are ultra-consumed by the busy schedule they have. The post-secondary school years can make us more narcisitic if we aren’t careful, and you have shown my students that it is completely possible to do well in school and contribute to a better world at the same time. So thank you for the passion, direction and practical insight that you gave my students yesterday. It
    truly was inspirational!
