A keynote speaker, messaging expert, and executive communication coach, Kelly Decker unlocks the potential in individuals. By pushing leaders to think about what really matters to their listeners, she helps them break out of ruts and avoid pitfalls that are keeping them disconnected and stuck.
As president of Decker Communications, Inc., Kelly leads innovation efforts, most recently developing new programs for challenges like sales storytelling, team selling and Telepresence.
In addition to serving as the mastermind behind Decker’s program offerings, Kelly personally coaches executive leaders from Fortune 500 companies such as AT&T, Clorox, and United Health Group to increase their impact and lead by influence rather than by authority.
Kelly has been a featured speaker at conferences and events for companies including Clorox, Microsoft, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, Pfizer, United Health Group, and Wells Fargo. She helps navigate communication challenges specifically related to female executives. She has also been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Marketwatch, and MarieClaire.
Every day, she leverages the skills and past experience that she gained in consulting with the Alexander Group and in corporate communications and sales management with AT&T. She holds an MBA from the Haas School of Business and a BS in psychology from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
Having grown up in a large Italian family, Kelly has worked hard to overcome the communications challenge of overgesturing. She’s also a proud survivor of growing up with three brothers, and she uses her experience to raise her and Ben’s three boys, Jackson, Joseph, and Christopher.
