CURVY creative conferences and events 2017
We are thrilled to have Kelly on board as our ongoing host and moderator for the CURVY creative conferences and events. Her depth of knowledge across all topics, speakers and their relevant industries is stunning. As a host she pulls all together seamlessly and does so in a fun and disarming manner that is a joy to watch and be part of. Her passion for female empowerment and the creative community shines through in all that she does. We have a greater than 10 year history with Kelly, who has been part of the CURVY community since day one – and we look forward to many more. I cannot recommend her highly enough"
