“She’s been awesome in supporting our OnTour product lines.”

“Kelli is a consummate professional, most attentive to relationships with artists, bands, management, and record labels. As anyone who has worked in entertainment knows, it’s an enigmatic industry – one that can pivot on a dime to the whims of popular culture yet conversely can morph slowly over time in other ways. Figuring out the enigma on a daily basis is how Kelli shines. Kelli gets where the industry has been and where it’s going. She’s been awesome in supporting our OnTour product lines, working with new and legacy artists, and helping us build a world-class digital content offering. Kellie is very well connected to the digital world and is a former major label A&R executive, so her strengths are with people. That’s probably why being with her is a great hang, whether she’s speaking on a music or technology panel, or talking over a STBX about music or business. In sum, Kelli’s unique strengths help those around her to bring music back into the music industry, and that’s a great MO for many of us in this industry to assume on a daily basis.”

The breadth of relationships which Kelli brings to the table is remarkable, and reaches outside of the US to International markets as well. But beyond this, Kelli is also very aware of the shifts and movements in the thinking of content creators, producers, distributors and service operators, providing her client with a good map of how new messages, new distribution ideas will resonate in the marketplace.

“Kelli has achieved what most can only dream about.”

“Kelli takes the concept of strategic alliances (i.e. “dot-connecting”) to a whole new level. Having driven digital music initiatives for Apple for nearly a decade, and having worked closely with marquee musicians and other creative leaders and digital music technologists across the entire ecosystem– Kelli’s rolodex is truly among the most impressive I’ve come across.

When she named her advisory firm “All Access Group,” she wasn’t kidding! Kelli brings the talent of an artist, the business sense of an executive, and the experience of a veteran to every project she elects to undertake.

My firm (Cogentic Advisors, www.cogentic.com) started collaborating with Kelli beginning in 4Q 2008, and we’ve since formed a highly synergistic alliance — we are working together to tackle several large capital raise projects, and helping many of our clients accelerate their performance through strategic business development across the digital media ecosystem.

When dealing with industry leaders, it helps to know that you are working with the best. A true professional, with the utmost integrity — and a balanced life — Kelli has achieved what most can only dream about. We’re proud to have her as a primary strategic alliance partner & collaborator.”

“This was one of the most amazing presentations.”

“Truly a force of nature and not to be missed, the tools and insight provided by Kelli in this podcast should be required listening for any Pyramind student and should not be missed by anyone considering a career in music!
