Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: (Hello prospects! Please contact me when you are ready to hire, put down a deposit, and are the person with the authority to do so. Also, I can not send you a final quote without Speaking With You about your event. Send me a Message, not the prompt, for my availability, then I will let you know and send my number. I cannot see your number from my end to call you. Once you open a message dialog, we can exchange numbers. The way the app is set up now is not the best for communicating for either party, but this is a great work around. Thanks and looking forward to working with you.) Hey everyone! Karen Kennedy here to bring your event to life in a fun, energetic, and professional way! I’ve crisscrossed the country performing stand up comedy, hosting tv and events, and have been a professional speaker for the last 10 years. I have graced the stage of many types of events, from parties to corporate to awards show hosting. You'll see that variety of happy clients in my reviews. Visit my website at SociallySmartAndSavvy.com to learn more! I look forward to hearing from you and putting on a Fantastic event!

Karen is a jewel. She made my 25th anniversary party a huge hit! From our initial conversation to the end of the event, she was always professional, very organized, and such a pleasure to work with. My guests couldn't stop talking about how great Karen was. Her personality and positive energy is infectious. Her experience as a public speaker made her the perfect host. She went above and beyond by also coordinating the flow of the evening. I highly recommend her for any event you may be considering.

Thanks Bernard! I had so much fun hosting your zoom surprise birthday party! Although we were in the middle of a pandemic, I'm happy we were able to have almost 3 hours of fun with games, drinks, and your awesome family and friends. Please think of me for any future events.

Working with Karen has always been great! Her professionalism is excellent but what I like most is the energy she devotes into building your brand. She shared knowledge of how I can make my business better and put her own little personal touch on it. I look forward to working with her again and also watch her grow in her career.
Socially Smart and Savvy's reply
Thank you again Idara for having me as your keynote speaker for your business event. My passion comes from genuinely wanting to help people streamline their business goals. I'm excited for your brand and its success! Already looking forward to next year's event!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My prices are competitive and reflect my expertise and experience.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The typical process for working with a new client begins with a phone meeting in which we determine if we are a right fit for one another. I learn about my client, their needs, and the event. My expertise and experience are transparent, and I address any questions or concerns. When we have determined we are a match, the client will secure the date of their event with a deposit. I keep an open dialogue of communication throughout the entire process and will check in periodically if applicable. On the day of the event I’m well rested, prepared, early and ready to deliver a slam dunk performance.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an award winning professional speaker, 2x book author including a best seller, educator, and stage play actress. Examples of events I’ve emceed outside of comedy include: Runway show Wedding reception Colleges and universities Family reunion Citywide town hall meeting I studied Social and Behavioral Science, Liberal Arts and Mass Communication in college.
