Keeley Walker is the Founder of KW Comms Ltd – a boutique marketing company that harnesses the art and science of storytelling to connect individuals to brands and vice versa. Having spent a decade as a journalist, Keeley was head-hunted to build the brand messaging and marketing strategy for a disruptive tech start up and never looked back.
As the world’s shift from analogue to digital accelerated, Keeley found the human element of businesses fading in favour of AI and automation, and so committed herself to using the power of story to resonate with ‘people’ rather than ‘consumers’.
KW Comms was launched just as Covid 19 took hold, when digital technology was “crucial to how we communicate but not how we connect”.
During the global pandemic, individuals were naturally re-assessing their mundane working lives and ‘pipe-dreams’ were brought back to the fore, giving KW Comms a captive audience with its core message that anyone can profit from their passions and that SME’s, above huge corporations, hold the power now to make a real impact.
Whether it’s taking an idea from conception to execution or supporting businesses on an advisory level, KW Comms’ growing list of projects spans a wide variety of sizes and sectors. “I don’t limit myself to a particular space. Everyone has a story and a human audience – my role is to connect the two.”

When Daphne first started this business venture, she researched what was missing in the fashion industry.

The word bella is a latin word for beautiful. However, the meaning of beautiful means so much more than just looks. Everyone deserves to live a beautiful life, so suddenly it clicked and “Live Bella” fell into place.
The mission for Live Bella is to empower women to wear what makes them feel good and live their best life!

Andrea Alvarez never had an inkling for fashion. She never cared about what she wore, or how she looked. After several years as a stay-at-home mom, she had become comfortable wearing sweats and a hoodie. “Dare I say it had become "my look."
“I had also begun to think about my future. My kids were now in school during the days, and I would finally have some "me" time. What would I do? Would I go back into teaching in some capacity? Would I pick up my tutoring business or advocating business again, or would I go in a new direction?”
For years, she have been viewing the incredible photos that her father has taken. As a passionate photographer, he has traveled the world and captured some amazing photos that instantly evoke emotion. Our planet is a wonderful site to see.
She often wondered what could be done with these phenomenal images. How can we remind people of nature's beauty, and be inspired to preserve our natural home? Could we build a website, or publish a book? How could she do something positive? And then...she stumbled upon the most incredible idea!
