  Profile: "In what seemed just a blink ago, I was in a hospital room helping my mother gently maneuver headphones on my father’s ears. My father’s journey with cancer was brief, and we knew he was nearing his time to leave us. We were just hoping music could help relax him, even just a little, and provide his body enough peace to be able to sleep after days of agitation and pain. Within an hour…he was asleep. As the nurses began asking what we had done to help calm and ease my father’s pain, we said, “We just played music.” That was the life-changing moment that has brought us here over 20 years later." -KEYS Founder, Colleen Bennett From that moment in November of 1993, the KEYS Program was born to help bring music, comfort, hope and smiles to kids going through the same difficult time, in memory of Colleen's father. Today, with the help of over 100 volunteers, the KEYS Program provides its award-winning patient support programs to children treated in 44 children's hospitals, special needs sites and hospice agencies across the US. Colleen has been recognized for her dedication to children receiving the Child Care Council of Cornell Cooperative Extensions Friend of Children Award, Who's Who Among American Women and the KEYS Program has been named one of the top 15 children's charities in the US by the Tony Stewart Foundation for the past 4 years.
  Featured Products or Services: Along with its outreach programming for pediatric cancer patients, KEYS also provides community music therapy services for children with various disabilities, music classes and workshops.

Desired Markets: Local, Regional
  Speaker's Bureau Topics: Health Coaching - More Than Food: Health Coaching involves ensuring satisfaction in relationships, careers, creativity, spirituality and so many other areas in addition to what you eat. Simple Abundance - How to Create More Joy in Your Life: Based on the book by Sarah ban Breathnach, these retreats show you how the principles of Gratitude, Simplicity, Order, Beauty Harmony lead to more Joy in your life.
  Profile: My name is Jody Brown and my business is called Wholly Education. The name comes from when I discovered that the three words heal, whole, and holy all come from the same root word, the old English word hal. That means that there was a time when those three concepts were so intertwined that we only needed one word to describe them all. I have wondered how the concepts became so dis-integrated, but I am encouraged by how with today’s holistic approach we are integrating them back together. So Wholly Education is a play on those words. My mission with Wholly Education is to empower people to realize their full potential by nourishing their body, mind, and spirit and I offer a wide range of services to accomplish this. I lead meditation classes as well as Health Coaching, Reiki, and Women’s Retreats called Journey to Inner Peace. Additionally, I help people with rites of passage as a non-denominational wedding officiant specializing in non-traditional and custom wedding ceremonies. As if that weren’t enough, I also teach piano using the Suzuki Method.

  Speaker's Bureau Topics: The Magic and Power of Gratitude - Happiness, Gratitude and the New Science - Kids, Moms and Gratitude
  Profile: In my work as a psychotherapist, women's workshop leader and executive coach, I bring a wholistic perspective and understanding of the possibility and contribution of each and everyone. Also, having been a working mother and now a grandmother I know that no matter one's career, if you are a parent the issues of raising your kids are always in the back of your mind. Having concise, easy access to the wealth of new information on raising happy, mindful, kind and grateful kids who are connected to nature is critical for parents, grandparents, educators, therapists, life coaches and anyone concerned about the future for our children. Because of my huge commitment to the environment, and to youth, I volunteer for the Onondaga Earth Corps, a program for youth empowerment through environmental work. It is my hope that we will have a healthy planet for all kids and that they will learn to care for the earth and to be grateful for all of it's gifts.

  Speaker's Bureau Topics: What makes a woman happy? I am sure one of the main answers will be - have something nice to wear, something that gives her a good feeling and have a precense. Well what can it be? I think that a unique jewelry is the answer. What do you think? So, please enter my website, and see the handmade jewelry, and maybe you'll get the desire to have something new for the winter 2009 or holiday.
  Profile: My name is Chen and I live in Israel. After several years of creating jewelry with beads, I have to admit that I am a "beadaholic" but I have no intention of rehabilitating. I think that the jewelry creation is like magic - you create something new from the unknown, from your imagination and it becomes something people like to wear. Each finished piece of jewelry acquires its unique presence, which can be totally different on each person who wears it.
