Plato recognized thousands of years ago, necessity is the mother of invention. Kelly Archibald created Speak Volumes after recognizing that her lawyer-husband could improve his advocacy skills with more effective use of his voice and speaking style. Speak Volumes was borne out of a recognized need that Kelly was equipped to meet; to provide professionals with the skills to be accomplished speakers. Kelly has over 10 years experience helping people meet their speech goals. She received a vocal performance scholarship from East Texas State University, and earned a degree in speech-language pathology and audiology from the University of Texas at Dallas. Kelly has sung professionally and continues to keep her own voice “tuned” through various types of media and performances.
