Kristen and her team at KDalyCo feel like an extension of my own business. As a business advisor and coach, who works with senior leaders globally, my job is to help my clients find better alignment with their teams, grow and expand their business as well as begin their legacy planning. I regularly and confidently pass a baton to Kristen because once my client is clear on their mission Kristen’s attention to detail, curiosity about personal style and voice, and her uncanny ability to get the most nervous or introverted of people camera and podium ready is remarkable and appears to come as naturally to her as breathing. I couldn’t recommend Kristen more assuredly or more passionately.

I was faced with the challenge of making several high profile speeches in a short amount of time while still running my company as CEO. I reached out to Kristen and she immediately went to work. Her expertise and support were critical to my ability to communicate effectively while still supporting the needs of my team, customers and our military service members. Kristen both challenges and inspires. Gemini’s "No-Fail, No-Excuses" execution has enabled customers to achieve their goals and led us to 30 years of success in business. Kristen’s no nonsense, laser focused coaching echoed our culture. Her methods work.

Kristen’s speeches always receive positive feedback and words like “relatable,” “approachable authority,”and “thought provoking” are just some of the ways the audience describes her. Thank you Kristen for your power and courage!

The vast majority of speeches I’ve sat through are forgotten in 24 hours. Kristen has the rare ability to paint a picture with words and leave a lasting impression. I was lucky enough to be front row for one of her a speeches. She used her story to make every woman feel as though their voices and opinions were important. Her words showed us that a lot can be done in this world through the power of storytelling coupled with a bit of courage.

I had approached Kristen Daly to provide guidance and assistance with our marketing and on-camera media initiatives for our Executive Leadership Team. Given her extensive background in Public Relations and in the local media, I felt confident that she would add value to our initiative. The end result was far more valuable than I ever imagined. She quickly immersed herself in our business and our services. She carefully shaped our message and closely guided our on-camera delivery. I now have a new found respect and understanding for the expertise that a professional PR consultant can provide to any organization seeking a positive public image. I would highly recommend Kristen to any organization or senior executive looking for media training and PR initiatives.



Dave Gomes
CEO, Navis Learning

I was on the verge of making an important and high profile speech, and I wanted to get it just right. To complicate matters, I had to deliver it using double teleprompters! Although I’ve given many of speeches before, this moment was different. So, for the first time in my life I decided to seek out the assistance of a seasoned media coach. I knew Kristen would be great the second I met her. She has a big personality and a ‘can-do’ attitude. In a short period of time Kristen was able to help me hone my skills, strengthening my delivery and allowing me to feel natural, authentic, and conversational even though I was reading off teleprompters. Kristen’s media coaching really helped me prepare for this big moment. She didn’t try to change me, or my message, she simply drew the best out of me. It was an excellent experience.

I have had the absolute pleasure of knowing and working with Kristen for more than 20 years. To say she is a force of nature is truly an understatement. She’s fast on her feet and knows how to get things done. Kristen leads with humor and honesty and has a way of motivating people to do things they didn’t know they wanted to do! She can fill a room with the drop of a text, then emcee AND run the show-in designer dress and heels. She’s a creative thinker whose connections run wide and deep- a true testament to her character. I’m honored to be one of them.

Kristen Daly is an extremely effective media trainer who has worked with several of our clients to prepare them for live media appearances. She was able to put them at ease, help them shape their message, and teach them how to have a focused conversation in front of an audience. Each client accomplished their interview successfully - and one of them was booked for several additional appearances. Kristen's years of experience as a broadcast journalist and PR professional make her uniquely suited for the work she does, and her empathy, intelligence, and sense of humor make her a joy to work with.

Kristen is a miracle worker. I have spent my whole life with stage fright. I decided it was time to get over it and I accepted a public speaking event at a gallery to talk about my photography. I had plenty of time to work on it. But...I stressed for 7 months. I wanted to bail. I procrastinated. I woke up in the middle of the night panicking. About a week before the event, I was still unprepared when my stars aligned with Kristen’s. She saved me. In a week she taught me life long lessons, not that just got me through my presentation, but about self worth and tackling my "imposter syndrome.” I am forever grateful!
