Private Coaching

Want More Help from Kelly? You’re in luck! There are many ways to continue the learning…

The first question to ask yourself is Do I want to be a student or a coaching client? A student learns the formulas and the templates.  A coaching client gets Kelly’s eyes on your own keynote or story, and helps you rework it.  Maybe you want both.

 Testimonials for Coaching from Funny Motivational Speaker Kelly Swanson:

Kevin Brown, VP of Marketing, ServPro

The first moment I saw Kelly Swanson on stage I fell in love with her humanity, her mastery of storytelling and her craft. She seamlessly goes from moment to moment and takes the audience on an extraordinary emotional journey where the learning is embedded within it. She doesn’t do any of the typical “I’m now going to tell you the learning point,” and yet the learning seeps into our hearts and head in a subtle yet powerful way. We learn through our emotions not through our intellect is the message Kelly gives me and she’s spot on.

Being in this business long enough, I knew that the easier it looked the more rigor it took, and in Kelly’s case, it was no exception.  I worked with Kelly’s method and was delighted by what I found. I worked her step-by-step system that is very easy to follow, but definitely takes a commitment to do. It really challenges you as a speaker to turn your speech from monologue to dialogue. Kelly’s system elegantly helps the speaker knit together the expert’s humanity with their professional expertise. I came away totally confident that I had found the missing link in my speech and that my keynotes will never be the same.

Lastly I want to say that Kelly loving pushes her clients and following to get to the heart of what they’re saying as speakers in order to make the most impact to the people they serve. She will push you out of your familiarity zone but in such a loving gentle way. She’s wicked brave and her system will help you be brave and connected with your audience in a way that you never dreamed possible…and ultimately isn’t that what it’s about? Lois Barth, Courage to SPARKLE, Human Development Expert, Motivational Humorist, Provocateur/Jester


Keynote Camp was incredibly beneficial. Besides being a talented speaker, Kelly is also a wonderful facilitator. Kelly has a gift for helping you focus on what will sell and what will work in a speech. She is incredibly experienced and intuitive about how to put together a story and make it authentic to you. She sees material in away that is brilliant, humorous and touching. Kelly is incredibly giving and generous. You don’t want to miss the experience of Keynote Camp, if you are serious about going to the next level in your career. Lori Klinka Speaker, Trainer, Speaking Coach NSA-IL Member of the Year Speaking and Acting Faculty, Columbia College Chicago


Kelly Swanson took what was already a money making speech for me and turned it into a standing ovation masterpiece. Kelly took my stuck ideas and my active ideas and turned them funny and connecting in a way I had only imagined. She has “it”. She gets “it” and helped me get “it” too.     There are few people who are as sweet as they are smart and Kelly is one of those people. Do not walk but RUN to Kelly Swanson to take your speaking to a whole new blow- your -mind level of success. She did it for me and I know she can do it for you. Shivan Sarna, HSN Host and Speaker 


Working with Kelly completely changed how I look, write and deliver both my keynotes and my workshops. Her ability to help me redesign my content to include powerful stories, strong points, and humor, has literally turned my work from good to memorable. And memorable gets me booked. In addition, I worked with Kelly on my presentation skills, and her talent for  teaching the art of delivery, I believe has contributed significantly to increasing my bookings and my audiences. Working with Kelly is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and one I plan on repeating – often! Meridith Elliott Powell Business Growth Expert Speaker, Author


Kelly Swanson changed my life. This is not an overstatement. As my speaking coach, Kelly helped me create a one-of-a-kind, killer keynote that truly highlights my talents as a speaker and hoopdancer while weaving in valuable content that my clients are clamoring for. She has an uncanny gift of helping people create the most emotional, powerful and HILARIOUS stories, and she is totally selfless when it comes to sharing her great ideas and constructive feedback. Thanks to Kelly, my speech is now a captivating performance that delivers standing ovations, higher fees, and more bookings. She is a delightful, open-hearted, powerhouse of a talent that knows how to make every speaker shine! I highly recommend her for speakers who want to take their programs to the stratosphere.
