Co-organizer of TEDx Silicon Alley to speak on the intersection of technology and communications

Kelly Hadous, President and Founder of Win The Room LLC

" I believe that technology and communications don't necessarily have to be antagonistic and can synergize to provide the best of both worlds."

Kelly Hadous, President of Win The Room, an executive communications company, is opening for the TEDx Silicon Alley Conference in New York this Thursday October 27th, 2011 at the Grey Group building on 200 Fifth Ave. Along with Chris Grayson, Director of Digital at, she is organizing the event and giving an opening speech on the intersection of technology and communications.
Kelly Hadous, President of Win The Room, said, “I’m thrilled to be organizing this TEDx Silicon Alley event because I have met so many great people who are passionate about technology and fusing it with so many other aspects that it creates exciting brand new possibilities. I wish to bring awareness to the importance of communications in our lives because traditionally it has been overshadowed by the emphasis on technical skills. However, communications is just as important because it is the art of connecting with other human beings. As Lee Iacocca once said, ‘You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can't get them across, your ideas won't get you anywhere.’ The prevalence of technology has forever changed the way we have interacted with the world and especially with each other. I believe that technology and communications don’t necessarily have to be antagonistic and can synergize to provide the best of both worlds.”

As a result, both my focus and energy were shifted to the audience. For the first time I wasn’t nervous about being on camera. Her techniques and constant support gave me the freedom to be in the moment. I would highly recommend Kelly; she is a knowledgeable and brilliant coach.”
