Kyla Sokoll-Ward is a speaker, facilitator, and professional empath who speaks about loneliness among Millennials and how Millennials can use their emotional experiences as tools for connection. She has shared her message internationally, on multiple TEDx stages, and has facilitated connective experiences for thousands of young adults around the world.

Kyla’s work aims to help Millennials upgrade their empathy skill set, ask better questions, and get more curious about what it means to be human. She has interviewed dozens of millennials around the world about their experiences with connection and loneliness and, based on the results, has created a framework for connection that can be used in a multitude of settings.

Through keynotes, workshops, and 1:1 mentorship, she aims to disrupt the status quo of connection and challenge others to connect more intentionally, vulnerably, and empathically with those around them. She’s a firm believer that we’re only one good question away from connecting with the entire world.
