Kelley Black


Kelley Black is the Founder of Balancing the Executive LifeTM and is one of the top stress management consultants in the country. She is frequently called upon to lend her expertise to major print and broadcast media including, most recently, ABC News Now. Kelley’s work will be featured this fall in Conde Naste’s Portfolio Magazine and Pink Magazine, among others. An accomplished keynote speaker and workshop facilitator, Kelley’s next speaking engagement is at the Working Mother Media Work/Life Balance Congress New York City in October 2008.

A former burnt out advertising executive who healed herself and became a NAAM Yogi/Universal Kabbalist, Kelley realized that her business experience combined with her extensive knowledge of how to sustain high levels of mental, emotional, spiritual and physical energy gave her many tools to give back to the business community. Kelley’s passion is taking NAAM yoga “off the mat,” enabling people to use it to create exquisite, stress-free lives while simultaneously attaining their highest personal and professional goals. Kelley is continually inspired by the ability of the teachings to rapidly transform the performance of individuals and organizations regardless of the challenges they face.

Kelley’s clients include executives from an impressive roster of diverse industries, including: Calvin Klein, Credit Suisse, Conde Nast, Warner Entertainment, Prudential Douglas Elliman, Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, Pfizer, Visiting Nurses Service of New York, Pepsico and more. She is also a communications consultant, training Key Opinion Leaders from a variety of medical specialties in the art of effective communication.

Kelley lives in New York City with her husband Andrew. She is an avid reader of the New Yorker, loves travel and good wine/champagne (in moderation of course), her goddaughters Ameena and Bianca and her two crazy cats (Vindaloo and Lola). She wishes to thank Gurunam and all the angels in her life (you know who you are) without which none of this would be possible.
