Kaila O'Connor is a multifaceted entrepreneur.
An early affiliate PR pioneer, consultant and mentor. Human Design business guide for corporate.
Born from two musicians/music teachers & with 20+ years of music studies under her own belt, Kaila often gets her best business ideas and also expresses herself through improv classical piano and abstract watercolor painting.
Kaila believes to her core that how we feel at work matters and is the 50% missing from the corporate world -- and loves being a first in showing a new way, a good feeling way of working -- and guiding others toward feeling good, productive, creative and inspired at work too.
Fascinated by energy dynamics and human design, Kaila founded KMO Consulting in December 2020 - driven by a vision of innovatively approaching PR.
Her agency serves DTC (direct-to-consumer) brands and PR professionals in affiliate PR and corporations, leaders and teams in personal energy coaching & management using the human design system.
Unlike traditional agencies, KMO Consulting focuses on individual energy strategies, with a priority on employees’ well-being.
By working with a maximum of 3-6 clients at a time, KMO has generated over 5 million dollars in affiliate revenue for its clients, secured 3000+ top-tier media placements, and trained 200+ industry professionals.
At the core of Kaila’s work is her focus on blending human energy in tandem to industry strategies and tactics within corporate operations to create a more productive and highly autonomous work culture. This innovative approach reduces turnover and hiring costs.
With a dedicated heart and focused mind, Kaila sets new standards for individuality in the workforce and expands perspectives for what’s possible.
In a time where employee burnout, retention and job satisfaction is more important than ever, Kaila brings Human Design in addition to the wisdom learned along her own journey to reshape corporate culture and uplift workspaces through personal energy business coaching.
At age 29, Kaila O'Connor discovered Human Design while listening to a podcast during her commute to a conference.
The next day, she walked into her corporate PR job at 8am - handed over her lab top and quit - with no plan, no job lined up. Just a knowing that she desired to feel better - and now knew it was possible.
