Carly has quickly become a student favorite keynote for our Character U program at DeSales University. It’s not every day that a student can meet a gold medal Olympian and wear her medals! She has a powerful message that the students value and appreciate

Carly was incredible! I know the audience was eager to see her speak and she did not disappoint. She was so lovely to work with and just radiates positive energy. I was blown away by her presentation and I heard from numerous attendees that she was their favorite speaker of the day (out of over 30 speakers!).

Once she took the stage she was able to quickly capture the attention of everyone in the room. Her speech was inspiring and her video footage was able to visibly demonstrate her pursuit of Excellence during the Olympics. I would recommend Carly for any appearance as her story is relevant to everyone.

Simply put – WOW! She really is amazing and left us with such great messages. My take-a-ways: • Save the set back for later: find a way to come together as a team and still make it happen. Help each other. • We have a choice who we want to become. Find your flow and get into the zone! • Be curious, patient and innovate. • It's not about control, but consistently getting better. • Remember to be grateful. Her messages do resonate with us as members of the South Central Team, HP employees and also in our personal lives. I left the talk very inspired and woke up this morning feeling the same way.

She was truly phenomenal! So relatable, caring and warm! She spoke a powerful message that left a lasting impact on students for years to come. This is a word that will not be soon forgotten. If you have the opportunity to have Carly speak…do not let it pass you by. Her message captivates the hearts of her audience and her passion moves those in the room.
