My Speaking Engagements

Colleen Kelly Mellor is an exciting, engaging speaker who looks forward to interacting with all types of audiences. Note Colleen’s “Speaker Topics” –or even ask how your own group might benefit from one of her many talks. Her message is one of encouragement, to which she adds her trademark humor. Colleen also speaks to informal book clubs about a topic most need to know about–downsizing…selling a home…buying a condo…based on her recent book, “Boomerrrang.” Reviews for her book are on Amazon. Ask her to present to your book club. She’ll give you a different way to view Rhode Island. Don’t be shy. She says “Let’s have fun!!”
