Kelli Wingo, CPC, ELI-MP

Kelli [Kel -ee]    Origin: Gaelic, Irish     Meaning: warrior

warrior, orator, coach, content creator, fire-starter and lover of laughter


Kelli has a passion and calling to help people realize the greatness that lies within. She serves as the Founder/Chief Vision and Strategy Officer of KMW Catalyst LLC, a personal and professional development company focusing on authentic personal branding and entrepreneurship/intrapreneurship culture. She is a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner (ELI-MP), accomplished speaker, content creator, presenter, and writer.

She is also the Founder/Chief Orator of Spiryt In Motion, a movement dedicated to dismantling the oppression of limiting beliefs one talk at a time.


As the creator and host of the YouTube channel, The War Room with Jael, Kelli energetically shares motivation, inspiration, insight, and strategy on business and life with a broader audience. Her writing can be seen in Forbes, CEO World, Thrive Global, Addicted 2 Success, Medium, The Good Men Project, and LinkedIn.


As a business junkie, what intrigues Kelli most is the stories about the people behind the business. From corner bakery store owners to recent college grads entering into the workforce to CEOs of trillion-dollar companies. Everyone has a unique journey worth knowing.

Recovering imperfect perfectionist that she is, her own road to realizing her vision has been a varied and textured journey, having spent much of her career in the financial services industry at Merrill Lynch, BlackRock, and Oppenheimer & Co. However, it was when she jumped ship without a lifejacket into the unchartered waters of entrepreneurship, she found the intersection of fear and fearlessness, failures and successes...and has never felt more empowered.


Although based on the East Coast, Kelli still celebrates her Midwestern roots. She is a graduate of The University of Michigan - Residential College (Hail to the Victors!) and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., an international public service organization. She received her CPC and ELI-MP from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and holds membership in the International Coach Federation as well as the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce.

...and we are pleased to present Ms. Kelli Wingo...isn't that what they say after reading a long life story bio?

Now, what's your story?

Kelli Wingo is a warrior, orator, writer, coach and fire-starter. These are her words, but I agree whole-heartedly. Kelli Wingo is a natural leader and powerful speaker. She takes the stage to win. And by win, I mean be heard, share truth and inspire action. She believes deeply in everyone's uniquness and shared it so eloquently from the stage at The Speaker Salon.
