I have received nothing but OUTSTANDING feedback about your workshop. Thank you for sharing your skills and talents with the women of the BWLC.

You are a great presenter. You have great poise and confidence and you make connecting with strangers look easy.

Dr. Kym Harris has years of experience as a leader in human resources and solid academic credentials as well, but what makes her most effective as a leadership development professional is her powerful presence. When Kym presents before a group she is all there, and her honesty and vulnerability, combined with her knowledge and competence, create an extraordinary developmental experience for the audience. It is impossible to grow until you can see yourself clearly, and Kym both tells us and shows us how to do that. She understands the unique challenges women and particularly women of color face, but she also goes far beyond that to speak to each of us as human beings – and helps us all be more humble and more courageous.

I would like to thank you for an amazing presentation on Saturday. The mothers who attended cannot stop talking about your presentation and how inspired they are. You were right on target and delivered exactly what we wanted in a keynote speaker for the event. You are amazing at what you do and a wonderful role model.

Dr. Kym Harris is a consummate professional and one of the best speakers I’ve heard and I’ve heard a lot! In a recent women’s leadership seminar with an audience of over 60 business executives and professionals, she made a flawless presentation. I was extremely impressed with everything about her presentation – including the rich content and her ability to connect with the audience through real world examples. But perhaps the most impressive of all is Kym’s authenticity as a person, and how she integrates her own story of growth and development as a leader, demonstrating both personal vulnerability as well as true character.
