Alison Miley - Senior Vice President of Communications Services at Notion Strategies
We worked with Kelley on a Fortune 500 C-level leadership offsite event. She took time to deeply understand the audience so she could deliver the most impactful presentation, guide difficult but necessary discussions, and facilitate workshops to help the team evolve their thinking and behaviors. Her approach to inclusive innovation, diversity and belonging was presented in the context of broader corporate goals and strategies, creating the necessary connection between the two for our client. She is truly a powerhouse and is uniquely skilled at moving the needle on helping teams operate with an “inclusive innovation” approach. We could not recommend her enough and look forward to teaming up with her again!

Kelley makes strategy sexy.

Working with [Burn Bright] has been a great experience. They are superb at translating deep expertise in mental health into an engaging and impactful experience for participants. They took the time to understand our organization’s mission-driven, scientific culture. We were able to create multiple workshops that served our community, and I happily referred them to colleagues at other organizations because of the quality of their work.
