The Power of YOUth


Youth have the power to lead change. All they need is the right inspiration!

Kelly Lovell on stage speaking at Ted X

From building policy recommendations for G20 world leaders on youth employment and job creation to meeting Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, Kelly is trailblazing a path for youth to thrive.

Drawing from over 200 examples of youth taking action to address social problems and build inclusive communities, as well as Kelly’s own experiences as a young leader, this presentation challenges youth to explore their passions, make a difference in the world and become a leader of change.

I personally enjoyed Lovell's presentation at the ZOOM Business and Entrepreneurship Career Day—it was very much directed to the students in terms of using stories they can relate to. Oftentimes presenters speak above the students' heads, but she was very personable and came across as genuinely passionate about empowering youth to strive for excellence, follow their passions and reach for their dreams.

Lovell, it was a pleasure having you come into my senior business class. They found you to be very articulate and well spoken. They commented on your enthusiasm—it was evident that you are totally engaged in making others the best they can possibly be.
