2018 Keynote Speaker

Kim Lewis

Girls today, more than ever, are faced with situations that influence how they feel about themselves. It’s time to take a stand and stop the cycle!
Kim Lewis will deliver an engaging and exciting keynote focused on overcoming challenges and finding joy to live a life you love, with confidence. Kim will encourage attendees to positively connect with one another, learn more about negative influences and they impact us and how to inspire your community by being B.O.L.D.




Sarah Jackson

Do you remember the scene in the movie Peter Pan, when the children believe they can fly? All they needed was a little pixie dust. As the “Distributor of Pixie Dust” for Cerkl, my role is to inspire those looking for the answers to engage their audiences like never before with our automated personalization technology.
