Being invited to lead a global business network for women, co-founding a startup accelerator, appearing on CNBC’s Power Pitch, contributing to various publications (including New York Times, Inc., Fast Company, and Forbes), and co-creating (along with moderating) the Meet The Innovators speaker series at the Apple Store in SoHo (New York), are a few of her unanticipated career highlights. Kelly has worked with a range of organizations, including Google, Cisco, Oracle, Comcast, AMC Networks, Capital One, Canadian Digital Media Network, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, National Australian Bank, Westpac, Prudential, PGA of America, Pfizer, Bristol-Myers, and The Tory Burch Foundation. Kelly is working on her next book which focuses on the unique networks women need to build around their professional success.
