The following year, 2015, not a single female was among the ten finalists vying for the title of World Champion.  Consequently, Kelly has been dubbed as the Best Female Speaker in the World! 

Kelly Sargeant is a veteran of the United States Army where she became certified as an Administrative Specialist.  She has 30 years of experience in Administration and currently works full-time as a Certified Compliance and Ethics Professional of an Oil and Gas Engineering company.  Kelly is also a part-time Communications Coach; helping others transform their Speaking and Presentation Skills.

When it comes to engaging an audience, Kelly Sargeant is the go-to great energy leader!  She captivates her audience with her animated presentation skills and effervescent personality.  Kelly makes the most mundane training topics exciting

Kelly is frequently invited to speak on Leadership, Overcoming Obstacles, Empowering Women and Setting Goals.  She is inspired by her God-given talent of communicating and connecting with people.  Kelly consistently delivers with impact - leaving her spectators uplifted, intellectually stimulated, and emotionally triggered. Her audience often describes her as, “motivating and entertaining.” 

In her spare time she speaks for non-profit organizations as a Motivational Speaker at emergency shelters, transitional housing, and half-way houses across the city of Houston.

Keynote Address

Kelly SargeantLeadership - The Transformational Power of Taking the Lead
An inspirational address about discovering who you become, in the process of reaching your goals and objectives through leadership.

Kelly draws upon her feelings of facing her fears, the process of being transformed by leading, and eventually living without fear - but with purpose. Her testament helps listeners realize the importance of acknowledging the roadblocks to their dreams, taking ownership of their issues by taking full responsibility, solving them and succeeding.

This keynote speech will inspire the audience to be open to growth by showing them how to use leadership to instill courage, confidence and credibility in themselves.

Educational Sessions

speakers Kelly Sargeant - My Journey to the World Championship Stage!
Kelly leads attendees on a wonderful journey towards the coveted title of “World Champion of Public Speaking.” This is an entertaining and enlightening educational session where Kelly shares her excursion beyond the District stage and the lessons learned along the way:
- How to Choose Your Speech Topic
- How to Bring Your Speech to Life
- The 5 Components to a Winning Speech
- What separates a Good Delivery from a Great Delivery
- How to Prepare for the World Championship Stage

Cody Cotulla - The Empowering Effect of Defining Success
We all define success differently. For one person it might be a happy marriage. For another it might be a million dollars in the bank, or the ability to do 100 pushups, and take regular vacations. It might be starting a business or retiring early. What does success mean to you? Not sure? Come to this fun, interactive session where Cody Cotulla, ACB, CL,  will provide tools you can use to create an empowering personal definition of success, so that you can align the actions you take today with the results you want to achieve tomorrow.

Rachelle Onishi - Create Your Communication
This workshop is not about fixing your communication or the communication of others. It's about creating your communication with others such that they are not resisting what you have to say and are left enlivened and excited.

We are fortunate to have Rachelle leading one of our educational sessions. She is known to lead highly energetic, hella fun and interactive workshops where everyone has the opportunity to participate.

Bring your real world communications challenges. Only real situations will be coached during this workshop. Hypothetical circumstances do not work.

Although not everyone will be coached, from each coaching session, you will get value and have new opportunities for communication available to you that weren't available prior to attending.

Be Prepared to NOT take notes, as a comprehensive handout is available to those in attendance. Be totally present; this is where the magic happens.

You will leave with interpersonal communication skills to last a lifetime that will make a difference in your workplace, families, and world!

Attending the District 4 Business Meeting is FREE!
