Feedback From Virtual Events

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Kellie attended many virtual events, booked as the exciting guest speaker. Read the feedback she has received below.

"We absolutely loved Kellie's talk and we got really good feedback from staff." - Emily-Anne, Internal Communications Partner, London Luton Airport

"I just wanted to say thank you to Kellie for taking the time to speak to us at Saffron today. Her talk was motivational, inspiring and at times tear-jerking. Her thoughts on how we should treat each other, as human beings above anything else was truly amazing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed listening" - Rachel, Saffron Building Society

"The session went really well. I jumped on the call early along with Kellie, so got to have my own little catch up with her, which was fantastic, and was nice to have that time to ensure everything was clear. The interview was fascinating - Kellie came across as such a natural speaker, which I think is probably in part because she has such an interesting story to tell, and amazing insight into our topic but also partly because I think she had looked at the questions we had sent and had prepped in advance, which really helped with the flow. She also felt really relevant for our business due to the fact that she had worked with Sky back when she was a boxing promoter" - Jodie, Communications Executive, Sky

"Kellie you have been amazing! You touched the team deeply and plenty of them are extremely happy to have had the chance to talk to you... You need to know that you are an inspiration!" - Platform

“Kellie Maloney is an inspiration and an outstanding speaker. She spoke at our Rainbow Week, an event dedicated to raising awareness of LGBTQ+ issues and celebrating inclusivity, and she touched the hearts of everyone there. Kellie shared her personal story of transitioning and the challenges facing the LGBTQ+ community. Her talk was hugely educational and eye-opening and has left a lasting impact on our students and staff. Kellie was a pleasure to work with, and we do not hesitate to recommend Kellie as an LGBTQ+ Champion speaker.” - Sarah King, Gower College Swansea.

“We have just finished working with Kellie on a large scale conference. The theme was around gender identity and stereotypes, and our audience was split between practitioners and members of the public. Kellie was an absolute joy to work with from the start. Kellie arrived early to conduct media interviews which she was incredibly professional at doing. Kellie spoke on a stage to 700 people for about 40minutes and absolutely captivated the audience throughout. I have had a lot of positive feedback since the event, all because of Kellie’s presentation, and the way she spoke about her personal experiences. Kellie has a true talent for public speaking, and is a great name to attract people to your event. My thanks also to team at Champions UK who were easy to work with, and always communicated with me promptly.” - Rhiannon, Safer Poole Partnership

"It could not have gone better. Kellie was brilliant very warm, open and interesting. She spoke without notes and told her story perfectly. We had a very diverse audience – there were Dentons staff and clients who are allies, LGBT+ staff and clients and several trans* people in the audience – and everyone really enjoyed it. While she was speaking, you could have heard a pin drop. Kellie also stayed and socialised afterwards, and you could see how much it meant to people to be able to talk directly to her. We are very grateful to Kellie for coming and making it such a successful event. Huge thanks to you and Kellie for all your work on this". - Sophie, Dentons

"It was a great evening and Kellie was candid, down to earth and a great speaker for Evolving club. Please thank her enormously on our behalf." - Xavier, The Evolving Club

"It really was an amazing event, you guys and the BRG are amazing, impressive and courageous. Both Kellie and Gareth were so open and honest, we are really priveledged to have had them visit the office and share. Thank you so much." - CMAS

'Well done to the Pride team in bringing Gareth and Kellie to ABZ. Their life stories were so, so thought provoking - huge learning for me . Utterly brilliant. Thanks." - CMAS

“Kellie was amazing, I love her sense of humour. I’ve already sent some feedback that I received, but here are a few extracts:

    • As for Kellie, she is just hilarious and such a lovely person – you picked so well as I found the diversity of panel to be brilliant.
    • Kellie is so honest and open about her past life and how she built up the smoke screen of a completely horrible person (she uses slightly more direct words!) to divert everyone from her struggles with her identity - struggles that very nearly destroyed her and her family.
    • Kellie is so open and direct and it was great to have a chat after the session :)
    • Kellie’s talk was insightful, challenging and moving – all delivered with candour and humour.”

Freddie Cormack, BP

"I wanted to thank Kellie Maloney for the attendance of our event on Friday 7th of June 2019, Ms Maloney is an absolute dream to work with, Her presence at the event was a thrill for all who attended, and it was amazing how completely at ease she makes every feel, she is charming, personable, fantastic conversationalist, very witty and a remarkably clever and brave lady… I think that Kellie actually took it upon herself to make a real point of chatting to everyone at the event and this in itself is a tremendous skill. It was amazing to be helped and guided by yourself as well as an agency, we felt very supported in our booking and recommend Champions Speakers and Kellie Maloney to everyone." - Kelly, Fine Art By Scarlett

"It was a great evening and Kellie was very candid and certainly brought home the need to talk about our personal challenges. Please pass on my thanks."- Zoe, ISS World

"Kellie’s presentation was very well received by all of our employees across the 4 UK sites , and I have already received feedback from several employees commenting on Kellie’s honesty and openness to discuss what is clearly still a very personal and difficult subject. Some of our employees have described her talk as “Inspirational” and it has certainly achieved the desired effect of raising the awareness of Mental Health and the need to seek help. I would recommend Kellie to others who are trying to raise the awareness of mental health and remove the stigma associated with acknowledging that “it is ok to be not ok.” - Nick, Kemira Chemicals

"Thank you so much for speaking with us today, it was truly a great experience. You were very candid and very open with some very painful experiences. It takes a lot of bravery and strength to stand up in front of an audience and be unashamedly yourself. You allowed us to see a tiny part of your life, but what a life and what a story. I personally, can’t wait to see the next chapter and I am looking forward to seeing more in your film when it is completed. Your passion is your gift. Thank you for sharing it with us all." - First Advantage

"Kellie was wonderful. Would you please pass on our thanks, I’m getting so much positive feedback from the team. I think a lot of people are quite emotional!" - Karen, RMN

"I just wanted to send an email to pass on our thanks again to Kellie. Her talk was amazing and we are very grateful to her for sparing some time to do this. Her story really is incredible and I am so glad has found some peace within herself at this time." - Daisy, St Mary’s University
