From the beginning.
In 2014, Kelly was named 2nd Runner-Up World Champion of Public Speaking after surpassing over 32,000 contestants worldwide. She was also the only female finalist in the competition and the only American to place in the coveted top three. As no female contestants were among the 10 finalists vying for the title the following year, she was dubbed as the "Best Female Public Speaker in the World" for two consecutive years.
Kelly’s public speaking experience, combined with her work in the entertainment, legal, engineering, and oil and gas industries for many years, has provided her with the tools to work with people from all walks of life and coach all different types of personalities. Through her experience, she has discovered that even the most successful high-level executives sometimes struggle with delivering effective presentations in front of audiences. Kelly knew that she could do something to help these executives, so she developed a system that shows executives how to communicate their ideas in the most effective manner to end their struggles. Her system is entitled, "Own Your Moment!" Own Your Moment is also the theme of Kelly's keynote speeches, which is a road map on how to achieve success in your business through impactful public speaking and presentations.
Where we are now.
Kelly presents highly regarded keynote speeches to Fortune 100 companies like Dow Chemical, financial industry regulators like the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, colleges and universities like Oklahoma State University, and many non-profit organizations. After hearing Kelly speak, business executives reach out to her to seek coaching on how to give better presentations.
After working with executives on their speaking and presentation skills, and as they improved, Kelly became passionate about devoting her professional life to empowering others and helping them improve their communication skills.
Kelly now coaches other public speakers, interviewees and pageantry contestants; where interpersonal and public speaking skills are heavily weighted as one of the determining factors of who becomes the titleholder. Kelly judges and has been named an "Official Interview Coach" for various pageant systems including Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, and Miss America.
