Kaitlyn Kelly 1

Kaitlyn Kelly is the 18 year-old co-founder of PositiviTeens® Workshops. As a young teen in 2018, Kaitlyn was personally impacted by a high school shooting in her childhood hometown of Parkland, FL. That day, she witnessed, through live social media feeds, the unfolding violence upon friends and former neighbors while she sat in her school one town over. The secondary trauma of bearing witness to violence via unfiltered social media, as well as the developmental cost of violence depicted in consumer-entertainment platforms, inspired her to take action.
Addressing the psychosocial impact of violence, depersonalization, bullying and negativity that permeates social media on today’s youth was in response to the Parkland tragedy. During the pas 3 years Kaitlyn has worked to bring easily accessible mental health care to young people. Kaitlyn and her mother, a Clinical Psychologist (Dr. Sherry Skyler Kelly), developed an empowering program of Positive Psychology and Cognitive-Behavioral strategies to not only support and educate students, teachers and parents, but to also provide evidence based interventions to promote greater emotional resilience. The effects of digital technology on teen culture, communication, and relationships is one of the timely topics covered in the PositiviTeens® workshops and webinars. Kaitlyn’s unique perspective as a teen, and as a student of Positive Psychology, provides a foundation upon which enacting change for growth is relevant to young audiences. Kaitlyn has co-presented PositiviTeens® webinars to audiences in the USA, Middle East and China. Learn more at PositiviTeens®.com

Dr. Lavan Baskaran

Dr Lavan – YouTube

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. 
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” 
– Marianne Williamson – 

Dr Lavan Baskaran has been working as a doctor for the U.K National Health Service for 15 years. He has been a GP Senior Partner for almost a decade, and whilst running both his practices in South London, covering twenty thousand patients, has developed specialist interests in Diabetes, E.N.T, Minor Surgery, Transgender Health and A.D.H.D. He offers his strategic input through Clinical Director roles across a number of practices in his areas of Sutton and Croydon, but now focuses his time on developing his private Harley Street clinic and YouTube channel for patient health education. Despite being very medically focussed and always applying evidence-based medicine in his practice, Dr Baskaran is a huge advocate of lifestyle medicine, consulting patients about the importance of a positive mindset, with application of improved diet and increased exercise, before reaching for pills. Having setup Social Prescribing (the idea of de-medicalising and appreciating that factors such as stress through mental health, employment and finance, can manifest as physical health conditions) across Sutton, he now spends time using aspects of this to empower the patient through their journey of chronic disease, leading to better health outcomes. He dedicates every day of his life, extending the length and improving the quality of the lives of others.
