"Nothing Short of Inspiring!"

Peter Baxter / Director / Wilfrid Laurier University

"Kelly's performance rating was 10 out of 10

Her comments were as relevant as they were inspirational."

E.M. Blake Hutcheson / President & CEO / Oxford Properties Group

"...interesting, relevant and practical.

I strongly recommend Kelly as a Keynote Speaker."

Harry Taylor / COO / MARKS

"...Perhaps her most impressive talent was her

flawless guidance of multiple panel discussions."


"Kelly spoke to our team in a way that they could relate to,

not as the superstar that she is!   

In this way, she was able to land many powerful messages and

no one wanted the presentation to end."


"You were the spark necessary to continue the flow of this event."

Lauren Wallace / Events & Communications / Manufacturing Safety Alliance Of BC

"During Mountain Travel Symposium, Banff, the Forum was a huge success.  It came through loud and clear on our post event survey …. having a professional Master of Ceremonies (MC) made all the difference.  And, when combined with your keynote the 1 – 2 punch was wonderful. 

The comments were non-stop.  They were excellent, from both the keynote and MC perspectives. 


Personally, I loved your opening Keynote “Unique Moments”, encompassing your experience as an Olympian and professional broadcaster.  It was  compelling, educational and entertaining.  And, having you as our MC, throughout the entire Forum, provided MTS was a truly professional “look, style and feel”.  Finally, your experience as a broadcaster allowed you to effortlessly move into the “banter and point/counterpoint” with our various speakers and topics. On behalf of MTS, our sincere thanks and appreciation. "

Michael J. Pierson / Managing Director, Mountain Travel Symposium

"The added personal stories inspired and connected with the audience -  you delivered and of the 60 survey results I have read thus far you literally have perfect 5/5!"

Les Szabo / Business Development Manager / Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC

Kelly delivered an incredible keynote speech at our annual Safety Days kick-off, where we have a wide variety of cement manufacturing professionals, ranging from new temporary employees to 40-year seasoned millwrights and PhD. level engineers. 

Each employee was captivated by Kelly, who delivered a compelling and relevant safety message in an engaging and inspiring fashion. 

Simply outstanding...I would have her back in a heart beat!

Jim Bachmann / Plant Manager, LAFARGE

Kelly has the ability to convert life’s athletic experiences into riveting vignettes,

completely engaging her audienceHer Keynote exceeded all expectations.

The message was everything I had wanted…and much, much more!

Richard Walker / Head, Department of Radiology / Cumming School of Medicine, U of C

Recently I had her speak to 50 Global Leaders of OMERS and she was able to relate her story to theirs and captivate the entire audience.  Her performance rating was 10 out of 10!  Her comments were as relevant as they were inspirational.

I would highly recommend Kelly for any situation – any time!  She is a remarkable person and Canadian.

E.M. Blake Hutcheson / President & CEO, Oxford Properties Group

"A natural speaker who brought home such

powerful messages relevant to our audience."

Mark Sharp / Director / Panorama

"Kelly motivates and educates.

Her ability to transform her own experiences into teachable moments for her audience makes the concepts she speaks about

tangible, clear, and inspiring.

I would not miss an opportunity to include Kelly in the next Rocky Mountain Social Summit."

Christina Pilarski / CEO / Rocky Mountain Social Summit & CIPR Communications

'VanderBeek was the MC for our general session and her

grace, beauty & humour

lit up the stage.'
