Dame Kelly Holmes has developed a completely new and unique style of presentations never seen before. They are tailored to the individual needs of the client, working with them to achieve their goals and objectives of strategy meetings, seminars and conferences.

When Kelly made history at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, she achieved something that only 2 other women in the world have ever achieved, and became the second British athlete to win 2 middle distance Gold Medals at the same Games in over 80 years.

Before this historic victory launched her into the public eye, Dame Kelly's career had been one filled with injuries and disappointments, however her dedication and determination to achieve her lifelong dream saw her overcome all of this and realise her dream not once but twice. Dame Kelly imparts key information from her life as a Physical Training Instructor in the British Army, her Athletics Career and her role as The National School Sport Champion. These presentations are equally effective at large team building sessions and sales conferences through to strategic retreats and change management sessions.

In 2008 Kelly founded the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, which focuses on delivering life changing programmes to disengaged young people who are unemployed, not in education or training.

Her experiences make her an ideal speaker, she gives her audience invaluable information and keeps everybody entertained with her natural humour and charm.

Be prepared to be wowed by her enthusiasm and energy.

Speech Topics

Dame Kelly Holmes is an outstanding motivational and after dinner speaker, and shares how she overcame adversity to finally achieve her lifelong dreams.


Dame Kelly Holmes did a fabulous job... She is so natural, and nice, that the messages she delivers (in her own style) really strike home. Her frankness about her own personal journey added to this. The whole site was absolutely buzzing about Kelly's visit. I have had dozens of emails and personal messages commenting on how wonderful Kelly's presentation was... There was one word that has popped up over and over again... Inspirational.


Kelly Holmes is a great speaker. Forthright, clear, inspirational. She has a gift for using her story and her struggles, her challenges and her victories to inspire, encourage and entertain... Her standing ovation was thoroughly deserved.

Businesswoman of the Year Awards.

Thank you for giving one of our most moving and inspirational keynote addresses at the Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards. Not only did you deliver the brief, you are a perfect role model to inspire other women to aim high - particularly the next generation.
