About the Keynote Speaker

Kelly Wynne Ferguson, founder and owner of Kelly Wynne, LLCA graduate of University of Mississippi, Kelly began her professional career in public relations, but her lifelong dream and passion for design stayed at the forefront of her mind. Her career mentor gave her the momentum to take the next step in turning her vision into a reality and in 2017, Kelly Wynne launched one of the most recognizable high-end clear bags on the market. With the announcement of the new NCAA and NFL clear bag policy and so many football loving customers, Kelly was determined to design a clear bag that does not cramp your style! One year later, Nordstrom selected Kelly Wynne as their premier clear bag line to sell on their website.Kelly’s passion is to encourage and support other women to have the confidence to do what they love and love what they do! A big factor in Kelly’s success has been from the empowerment she has gained from other “boss ladies” in her life. She truly believes that empowered women empower women which is why Kelly is vulnerable in sharing her failures and successes. Anyone can be a boss lady if you ask Kelly; they may just need a little bit of push.
