"We used Kalee for a large internal training and launch event for the New Fiat 500, and could not have been happier with the work that she provided. From first contact, throughout the whole week onsite, Kalee was very professional and really went above and beyond to ensure that the talks that she gave were relevant and specific to the Fiat brand whilst also incorporating her own expertise from the fashion industry. By combining Kalee’s knowledge of the fashion world with an event introducing a car which is positioned as a very stylish option, we were able to really hit home the New Fiat 500’s position in the market to the dealers who attended the training. I firmly believe that we wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without Kalee’s input."
