Affectionately called the Body Language Boss, RB is Hawaii’s only certified body language trainer. When she’s not speaking as a keynote at conventions, luncheons, or annual meetings; she’s either arranging and hosting her own exclusive workshops; coaching executives, entrepreneurs, or middle managers, or working in-house with corporate sales and leadership teams.

While all her content is based on scientific studies and advances in interpersonal communications, RB brings more than just expertise to the table. Her presentations are overflowing with enthusiasm, entertainment & energy, and participants are spellbound from the moment she takes the stage.

Fun-loving attendees and purely practical results-driven team leaders can all agree that RB’s presentations are among the best they’ve ever seen, and her content is the most unique, engaging, and useful they’ve ever heard. 

Growing up, RB wasn’t quite so charming. 

She was born and raised in Utah. Her mother thought she was slightly autistic because she had such a hard time connecting with people and making friends.  She always seemed to say the wrong thing at the wrong time – if she managed to say anything at all.

She started studying body language in high school to try and understand the people around her and finally fit in. The learning curve was steep, and she made every body language mistake in the books. Slowly, she started to figure things out. She met her husband in college, made a disastrous first impression, but eventually won him over.

Then, she started formal training in the science of body language, discovered people secrets that blew her mind,  and finally earned certification in nonverbal communication from the Science of People, a human behavior research lab with over 2,500 studies. Now, she helps her clients use the CHARM method to DIAL up their success and build the life they truly want. 

 RB meets new people every day, is often the most charismatic person in the room, and speaks with presence and magnetism to all kinds of audiences. Clients and friends laugh in disbelief when they hear about her awkward origins because she’s come so far that they can’t ever imagine her any other way. Today, her mission is to share the incredible tool that took her from awkward to awesome with as many people as she can.

RB donates her time in the Body Language Boss Outreach Program to give body language training and skills to graduating students in Hawaii to help them prepare for the real world. She frequently speaks and delivers training to corporations, sales teams, customer service and hospitality representatives, youth organizations, university faculties and students, and women’s groups. Don’t be thrown off by her youthful appearance.



Talking to people is already hard enough. Awkwardness, rejection, failure, and embarrassment are all genuine possibilities.  Add in sweaty palms, a knot in your stomach, and a nagging voice in your head and it just gets worse. 

Whether you want to excel in in sales, management, or dating, you’re going to have to face awkward moments, misunderstandings, and rejections – and that hurts!

But – it doesn’t have to be that way.

There are revolutionary secrets out there. These secrets make talking to people FUN and EASY.

Even the most awkward or uncomfortable conversation can be made easy and natural if you have the right skills on your side. 

Previously, the only people talking about these skills are researchers and scientists. The only people using them are interrogators, bigwig politicians, and federal agents.  For decades, the highest quality training and information for  communication skills has been kept secret for only the most ‘important’ users.

Not anymore.

Now, Hawaii’s only certified body language trainer is bringing these super-secret people-powers to YOU.

“RB is amazing. She has this innate ability to pick up little cues such as those your face makes when you’re conversing with other people. I came to her with much to learn, and within an hour she was able to help me tweak my body language, my facial expressions, and a little bit about how I speak. I love how she was able to teach me so much in such a short period of time that will help me with my business. I really had no idea how much body language plays in nonverbal communication. She is worth every penny and every minute!” –Ingrid Hisatake, Entrepreneur

“I had my first session with RB, and it was so amazing! In just 90 minutes she helped me pinpoint what I needed to do to present my business with confidence. If you’re looking to increase your comfortability and conversions when it comes to sales and presentations, working with RB is a must!” –Sarah Paikai, Marketing Expert and Founder of HI000 Social Media Marketing

“RB Kelly brings the language of the body to life in her presentations. She emulates a glow of positive interactions and warmth when you meet her. As a principal, these skills are vital in creating positive relationships with your students, staff, and community. Ms. Kelly’s awareness of everyday signals that our hands and faces transcend to others helped me to improve my actions with others. Her program covers many facets of body language from signals to look for in our students to how we interact with others. I would recommend this training to other schools to promote a positive culture of caring amongst the students, staff, and community.” –Kim Sanders, Principal of Ewa Makai Elementary School and Past Principal of Aiea High School.

“RB Kelly has worked twice with the group of direct sales consultants I lead, and has delivered both times. The women were very open to her coaching and information because RB has a firm knowledge of her subject and is clear, concise and very personable. She is professional and fun, honest as she offers constructive instruction and warm and precise in her delivery of information. RB is organized and prompt. I would recommend her as a Body Language Coach for individuals as well as groups. She is a definite “must have” if you are serious about raising the bar for yourself and your business.” –Kathy Whalen, Independent Beauty Consultant and Sales Director

“Through RB Kelly’s nonverbal communication training I was able to deepen my understanding of how others perceive me and how I communicate with others. I also learned tools and training for the practical application of what we learned in class. RB was always great about explaining the concepts in detail and checking back in with us to see how we had implemented the training into our lives. These skills will benefit anyone looking to improve their communication in both their personal and professional lives.” –Jennifer Carroll, Health Advocate at Cornerstone Community Chiropractic

“RB Kelly is a confident and eloquent speaker, and she leads by example. She has great insight into subtle things we may be doing that give people the wrong impression about us. By understanding the importance of body language and applying them, you can put yourself at an advantage professionally and in your personal life. She works hard and is generous. I recommend anyone take her up on her complimentary phone session so you can see how you can benefit from her services!” –Jen Minamoto

“I had never heard about body language coaching until I met R.B. I immediately noticed that she had a great presence in the room, and there was a confidence about her that brought a lot of energy to everyone else. I wanted to work on being more confident in all aspects of business from networking, to client presentations, to closing the sale. R.B. has been extremely helpful in training me on how to use my nonverbal skills to achieve greater personal and professional results. I feel so much more confident and self-aware, and I notice so many details about other people that make it easier for me to interact with them. Thank you, R.B.!” –Marian Diop, Allstate Business Consultant and Founder at Aloha Photography Studios

“Working with RB has been really helpful and easy. I have begun noticing changes in my personal body language, and I’ve also become more aware of the body language of others and body language in general. RB is a very likeable and cheerful person who loves what she does. She gives information in a easy-to- digest, painless way. I definitely recommend having a lesson with her.” –Liam Hayes, IT Graduate Student

“I recently had a session with RB Kelly, and she is amazing! We talked about body language, and I learned a lot about things that I do naturally that scream “confidence,” and some body language quirks of mine that might make me seem “standoffish” without intending it. She has some great packages and in 3, 6 or 9 sessions anyone can become a powerhouse!” – Sharon Gutierrez, Owner and Marketing Expert at Shar’Enterprises

“WOW! I hired RB as my personal Body Language Coac,h and I have to say the session I had with her today was AMAZING! Her insight, her training, her connecting to what I needed to raise my non-verbal communication skills to another level is beyond my expectations. I was so impressed with how she communicated to me to bring those skills into my every- day life. She was clear, concise, and she made it easy for me to apply. Rock on RB!”  — Elizabeth “Biz” Kellam, Commercial and Residential Real Estate Expert.
