Kelly in Action


"Great content. Good examples that made me stop and think."



"It was a wake up call..."

"Information was extremely valuable..."

I was fortunate enough to attend your presentation regarding unconscious bias in the world and workplace.  Please accept this quick note as a thank you for your practical insight on how to address such an important issue in our everyday lives. Frankly, I do not think I will ever attend another presentation with a more memorable takeaway: “I am not a court reporter, but I type a lot.”  I am not sure if many others understood the reference; but I did and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

In both 2015 and 2016 you landed an outstanding 97.22% approval rating. In 2017 it was a nearly perfect score with a 98.78% approval rating. Quite frankly it doesn't get much better than this!

I attended The Skilled Advocate Company’s trial advocacy boot camp in Orlando. One of the presenters that stood out for me was Kelly Charles-Collins. During her presentation she spoke of how technology and visual aids make a huge impact on the jury and the Judges alike. The way she presented the material was straight forward and was done in a way that kept my interest and caused me to begin to think outside the box for my trials.  She is a great instructor and I highly recommend her.

I wanted to reach out to you to say thanks for sharing information on Unconscious Bias. During the presentation, you were able to enlighten us on the subject through your outstanding presentation and vast amount of experience with the subject as an individual and lawyer. Thanks for sharing the message with me...I've already thought about how I look at things since the presentation and discussion.
