Carly takes her time to get to know her audience, her clients and events. She will take her time to customize her keynote so it's best suited for your attendees. Carly is happy to bring her Olympic medals and do a meet & greet/autographs/pictures with attendees. Carly can also customize her message and share insights on how God played and continues to play a roll in her life, helping you and your attendees reaffirm their faith and get closer to God.
She was truly phenomenal! So relatable, caring and warm! She spoke a powerful message that left a lasting impact on students for years to come. This is a word that will not be soon forgotten. If you have the opportunity to have Carly speak do not let it pass you by. Her message captivates the hearts of her audience and her passion moves those in the room.
Carly has quickly become a student favorite keynote for our Character U program at DeSales University. It's not every day that a student can meet a gold medal Olympian and wear her medals! She has a powerful message that the students value and appreciate.
Once she took the stage she was able to quickly capture the attention of everyone in the room. Her speech was inspiring and her video footage was able to visibly demonstrate her pursuit of Excellence during the Olympics. I would recommend Carly for any appearance as her story is relevant to everyone.
