Past Engagements

Sample Speeches &
Potential Keynote Topics

Connecting with people on stage is one of my greatest gifts and passions. I believe a single impactful keynote has the power to ripple across humankind’s collective consciousness. The samples below are a few select speeches from me career that show is range of style and topic. Each talk is customized to each audience. No two speeches are ever the same.

Future of Work

I have my finger on the pulse of today’s workforce with seven years experience advising on the effects of generational divides, gender shifts and digitalization at work. From career expectations and concerns of young talent to the work values of Millennials vs. Gen Z, to how to create inclusive workplaces and best retain the next generation workforce, I help you remain future-ready.

The Skills Gap

I bring the latest future of education and training strategies to address the widening skills gap—incorporating insights from my work with policy leaders such as the G20 and G7 Sherpas, The World Bank and Government of Canada’s Federal Interoperable Skills Advisory Council—and explain how social-emotional learning, human literacy and creativity can help talent adapt. Explore the skillsets that are most important for your workforce, what to look for in new hires and how to upskill your employees to succeed.

Youth Innovation Mastermind

Using the Sustainable Development Goals as a framework, I guide you through the steps of creating an action plan to address a challenge in your community and share anecdotes and candid advice along the way from my global network of young innovators across 100 countries. During this interactive session, you will receive the knowledge and tools required to tangibly implement your ideas and  take action for a cause you’re passionate about.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

I’m passionate about the SDGs and facilitating global cooperation between all stakeholders—individuals, community organizations, businesses, government and nonprofits—to seed disruptive innovation and co-create solutions to these global challenges. Through my numerous United Nations engagements including serving on UN Volunteer’s global taskteam on Volunteering for Acceleration of the SDGs, UN Volunteer Groups’ Alliance Steering Committee, Impact2030 Toronto Impact Council and speaking at High-Level Political Forum, UN ECOSOC Youth Forum and UN Commission on Social Development, I frequently advise on the topics of youth-led innovation, multi-stakeholder collaboration and impact measurement for the SDGs.

Passion and Purpose

I’m a true believer in the power and potential of young people, which is why I remain focused on bringing a voice to the next generation and creating pathways for youth to thrive. Whether you are looking to empower the student voice, encourage young people to become active citizens or explore career paths in fields like entrepreneurship, STEM/STEAM and social innovation, I will energize and inspire your audience with relatable peer stories and candid advice.

More on Kelly

Navin C, Principal PM Microsoft

"Kelly's presentation style is very poised and her message captured the attention of the room best of the morning's speakers in my opinion. I enjoyed hearing the gasp and chuckles when she joked that Millennials are now entering their thirties and are basically old news. The point of view is refreshing and it was great to hear it firsthand."

Diane, Director of Community Engagement, Volunteer Action Centre

“Kelly has already been a great advocate for youth, giving us feedback and helping us develop our communications so they better respond to youth needs and interests. Kelly has demonstrated keen enthusiasm and willingness to take on an idea with vim and vigour!”

Air Miles for Business Team

“Kelly Lovell was an integral part of the AIR MILES for Business Small Business Achievement Awards event. She extended the reach of our pre-show buzz over her social media channels, and at the event, took part in a very insightful discussion on engaging Millennials—a topic that is on the minds of many of today's small business owners. She is very professional and knows the value of having a strong personal brand.”
