Inspiring Vision Meets Practical Advice
The innovation surprise when incorporating a workshop into to her keynote.
Most recent talk on Retail and IOT at World Retail Congress in Amsterdam.
Quickly shifting technology environment is making it challenging for any industry to succeed without the fabric of innovation. Innovation was a buzzword that came and left again a few years ago.
Kelly is bringing it back because without it companies die. Plain and simple. Connecting the fibers of experimentation, innovation, and collective knowledge across industries will help us evolve. This is especially poignant because in her mind, innovation is just the unexpected use of an idea. When we’re able to apply successful concepts to unrelated ideas and experiment, we’re opening up our worlds.
Weaving the tapestry of innovation across industries by creating our warp from leadership, knowledge and collaboration and the weft can be the magic a business has to create a unique design that helps them grow. Kelly shares trends and predictions that are helping her community solve the future of business.
Kelly inspires through storytelling. She shares lessons and perspectives with people through her speaking. She talks on trends and predictions from Remodista's 3rd Annual Look Book, looking at the future of retail and direct to consumer strategies.
Kelly can also spark a conversation that brings diversity and inclusion front and center. For inspiration and guidance, she can talk about her path of being "Born to Disrupt", and what that has meant for her life, after leaving a six figure career. Kelly started a new kind of research company using its purpose to build the business through trusted community.

Kelly talks about...
Born to Disrupt
Vision, strong will, and fortitude. Those are the keys to building something from nothing.
Those keys may seem at odds with the status quo, but when you’re born to disrupt, the status quo is just a speed bump on the path to manifest your dreams. It’s time to mobilize.
To be the leader you know you are, keep moving forward, one step or one leap at a time.
With a dry sense of humor and true vulnerability, Kelly will inspire you, to give yourself the next push needed.
