About Kalista

Kalista Zackhariyas is a powerful and empowering speaker. A thought leader with a unique ideology, her speaking topics are fueled by her own tumultuous and diverse life story, and refined by her nearly two decades of success as an entrepreneur, in parallel with a longstanding career in film.

Kalista invites her audiences on a transcendent journey as she shares stories of those who rise above circumstance to shine their light in the world. A common thread highlights the role that personal judgments play in clouding perception and limiting potential. Her talks and workshops reveal valuable insight and inspiration to create actionable change for both individuals and organizations.

Kalista’s voice and vision were distilled through persistent self-inquiry into the meaning of her own life experience. Realizing that how we choose to perceive the past has a profound impact on the present, she embraced a philosophy of un-becoming — unraveling the roots of self-imposed limitations — choosing to be empowered by the past, rather than entrapped by personal or societal judgments of it.

She could then see that in her own life, childhood poverty enriched her with creativity and the ability think outside the box; homelessness at 15 gifted her the grit and drive to become an entrepreneur at 17; domestic violence and abuse graced her with a capacity for forgiveness, and a deep desire to understand human behavior. Her exploration to find peace with her pain created the path towards her purpose. A life of adversity leads not to victimhood, but rather to strength, integrity, and personal power.

An ideal speaker in leadership seminars, corporate venues, women’s groups, youth organizations, survivorship programs, high schools and universities, and the like, her captivating and interactive messaging has the capability to transform both professional and personal journeys to new heights.

Kalista Zackhariyas is an accredited speaker with the National Speakers Association (NSA) — a recognized affiliate of the Global Speakers Federation (GSF) — and a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers (CAPS).
