Huge thanks for your stupendous presentation at APA's 34th Annual Congress! I had already heard you were an amazing humorist, and you exceeded my expectations. "Who Hijacked My Fairy Tale" was masterfully crafted and outrageously entertaining. In the midst of the laughter, there was a subtle yet poignant grace through your vivid characters. You are an artful storyteller! APA's members were mesmerized as you took over 2000 people on a journey, which was more relevant to our theme than I could have imagined. We look forward to having you back in the near future!

Kelly did her research and delivered a targeted message to our scientists and engineers that had us laughing (really hard!) and thinking while totally mesmerized. The “formula” she developed will provide us a guidepost for crafting our own compelling messages going forward. I keep getting stopped in the hallway by people who attended wanting to thank the team for bringing her in. The timing was perfect. We really needed to let loose and laugh. Kelly made a wonderful impression.

I just finished reading the second set of evaluations (week two) and just like week one, the attendees found you to be amazing and simply the highlight of the convention. Time and time again the forms listed you or things you said as the most important take away they had from the convention. As a speaker, one does well if they can get people to remember a few things they say. But, if one can change a life through a message, there is no higher praise than that. Thanks for being a part of our program. Best wishes in all your future activities. You have a gift!

Just watching Kelly Swanson speak is like attending a masterclass in storytelling. Participating in her program is like getting a master’s degree. Kelly not only teaches you how to craft a compelling, entertaining and relevant story, she also explains how to deliver it powerfully—with humor, emotion, effective timing and pacing, etc. I walked away from the workshop with a significantly better keynote, one that allowed me to make a stronger connection with my audiences. I recommend her for anyone who wants to become a better, more successful, and higher-earning speaker!

Kelly Swanson isn’t just one of the best storytellers in NSA (National Speakers Association), she is an artistic genius; a story-crafter par excellence. She understands how to take apart a story and put it back together so that when you deliver it your audience is right with you every step of the way. She is generous of spirit, authentic, funny, and a delight to work with.
