Private training days, high level insight days, keynote speaker sessions, webinars & workshops

Do you need to increase knowledge on the business of weddings?



As a life-long learner with a constantly curious mind, Kelly LOVES nothing more than sharing her knowledge and empowering others with fresh insight to go and achieve great things, make change for their businesses and themselves. And, very importantly, to deliver above and beyond for today’s wedding customers.

She’s been a wedding-industry trainer for over 14 years when she first started teaching new independent wedding planners how to set up and launch their businesses. Nothing beats the buzz of an interactive “classroom” setting where Kelly’s an expert at nurturing fresh knowledge whether it’s teaching how to convert more wedding venue sales, effective social media strategy or on the future of the wedding market for potential new sector entrants.

Engagingand approachable

Kelly’s style is engaging, straight-talking, approachable and empathetic. She comes from an operational background, having curated and project-managed thousands of events, sensitivity handling tricky brides, keeping exasperated Chefs from imploding, keeping large teams on track, complex logistics juggled and tackling whatever challenges live events bring–you know those things that absolutely aren’t mentioned on the function sheet!

She also speaks from over 17 years as an entrepreneur and business owner where she’s been hands-on, self-taught, made sales and marketing mistakes and thrown herself into every aspect of running multiple successful wedding industry businesses. With persistence, determination and a good dose of humour!

Kelly presents to venue teams including Property owners & Entrepreneurs, Heritage estate custodians, Hotel senior management teams (GMs, Ops Directors, Sales & Marketing Directors), Venue Managers, Wedding Co-ordinators, Marketing Teams and Wedding Planners as well as other segments of the wider wedding industry too.
