The Story Formula -

Connection and Engagement Through

the Power of Strategic Storytelling

Learn Kelly’s formula for crafting stories that reach your audience on a deeper level. Walk away with a template to help you create hundreds of stories of your own. Watch the lessons applied to real life as a few lucky attendees get the chance to jump up in the hot seat and get a story makeover! You won’t believe what magic Kelly can pull out of your story in just minutes. As speakers we know that it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it, that makes the difference in a good speech and an unforgettable speech.  Is it time to take your speech to a whole new level – even if you’ve been speaking for years. Then Kelly is the one you need. Join us for a program filled with content, laughter, and interaction.
