Her story, like many others, needs to be heard. Especially if you have a daughter, take her along. ~ Kelly B.
Need a speaker to get real, unafraid of being vulnerable and talk about the things that everybody is too afraid to say but are desperate to hear?
My story is life-changing, insightful and my courage shines from stage into the hearts of the audience.
My personal trauma sweetened me with a compassionate voice from overcoming the pain of the past, teaching me to use my pain as my power. Call me the silence-breaker!
Now I empower others to do the same.
I'll bring copies of my book Red Raw and get raw about my truth of living through trauma, healing, and reclaiming the power that had been taken from me, then sharing how others can do the same.
Holding a workshop for women and looking for something to pack a punch? Searching for an all important ingredient for a line up to have guests eager to get their hands on tickets?
My topics are based on what I've lived and workshops need powerful topics. I speak from the heart about topics society shies away from.
Memorable with a positive impact.
Awareness precedes change, I'll add insight to your audience sharing tools with the audience to take with them.
Kayleen is paving the path of courage for so many others, who would otherwise suffer in silence. Shilpa A.
