WHAT CLIENTS AND FRIENDS ARE SAYING
ABOUT INSIGHT EVENT STRATEGY
I had the pleasure of working with Kelly for 11 years. She is a strategic thinker, creative, innovative, highly intelligent, detail-oriented individual who can always be counted on to deliver a well thought out and perfectly produced program or project. What I think I loved the most is not only Kelly’s professional side, but that we also managed to have fun along the way.
Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI)
I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with Kelly for nearly a decade.
Recently, I assumed the CEO role at Destination Marketing Association international (DMAI) just prior to our Annual Convention in Minneapolis. During my transition, we had significant staff turnover, in particular the meetings department. Kelly was the first call I made to enlist her help and support for the development and execution of our meeting, which was looming just a few months away. Kelly executed a flawless meeting plan and coordinated with all the partners involved from production companies, speakers, hotel partners, and the Minneapolis CVB and Convention Center teams. As a result of her experience, planning, and calm demeanor the meeting was a huge success. This would’ve not been achieved had it not been for Kelly.

Kelly has demonstrated time and again the power of meetings when they are aligned to deliver strategic outcomes for an organization. She starts with the business imperatives and then designs event experiences and content that advance the organization in measurable ways. Kelly knows that collaboration is key to achieving the best work possible, so she fosters alignment and partnership with those who will help deliver the results. She is adept at communicating in the executive suite as well as with the operations team due to her professional competency, integrity and humility. In her role at PCMA, she modeled what every meeting professional should aspire to be – a strategic partner to the business who delivers exemplary experiences for all constituents.

Kelly is an outstanding listener, has a calm demeanor, and is a thoughtful strategist, which are all important traits for any consultant. She asks great questions in pursuit of common understanding, then she contributes her keen experience and artful guidance to help make it a reality. Being smart, prepared, and earning your trust is important to Kelly.

Kelly Peacy pushes me to think differently. She is always looking for new ways to approach things, innovative solutions to solve problems or enhancements to the participant experience. She re-imagines the ordinary and has a gift for making all that she touches, that much better.
