What Terry is Passionate About

The Power of the Dream 

Terry Kelly has given his “The Power of the Dream” presentation to tens of thousands of teachers, government employees and business people across Canada and the United States.

“The Power of the Dream” explores the importance of communication; confronting our fears, dreams, goals, challenges, choices and responsibilities; understanding and celebrating our differences; balancing our business and personal lives; team building and collegiality; the value of enthusiasm.

Using personal anecdotes peppered with humour, songs and audience participation, Terry addresses these issues and encourages individuals to develop their own values and strategies for living and working happily and healthily.

Rarely will you find such a unique individual as Terry who can deliver a powerful keynote or motivational presentation (accentuated with music); perform for an after dinner concert; entertain an audience in a party atmosphere; or sing the Canadian and/or American national anthem/s.

When performing in concert or for other full music engagements, Terry performs either solo, as a duo, a trio or with his full band. Terry’s keynote and speaking engagements on the other hand are delivered by Terry solo.

We Can Do Anything 

Terry Kelly’s “We Can Do Anything” school presentation is directed at leaving his audience with an increased awareness of the importance of self-esteem and a renewed sense of pride.

“We Can Do Anything” is about individual triumphs, overcoming real or imagined disabilities, sharing, caring and love.

Through stories, songs and open communication between performer and student, Terry Kelly proves that a belief in oneself is the key that will open doors to a rewarding and successful future.

Students become involved with Terry’s high energy and positive message. Original songs like “Mama Likes To Rock n’ Roll”, “We Can Do Anything” and “The Lucky One”, captivate the listeners’ attention. His down-to-earth approach and honest interest result in open answers to all inquiries during the question and answer segment.

Described by students as “Totally awesome”, Terry Kelly grabs the attention from the first moment to the last song.

“We Can Do Anything” is a show full of hope and optimism, both enjoyable and inspiring.”

This presentation is approximately sixty minutes in length and is offered at three levels:

Primary to Grade 6
Grade 7 to Grade 13
Parent and/or Teacher Groups
