"In the Gap Motivational, LLC has a way of blending a powerful narrative based on life experience to deliver life changing ideas to a broad spectrum audience. Keith Smith is one of the most influential speakers I have ever had the opportunity to witness." 

Scott Jones

Project Manager


“I listened to Keith speak in April 2019, and I found him to be a phenomenal speaker who engages his audience and leaves them with a sense of empowerment. Keith's personality appealed to his audience, while his passion for helping and serving captures the hearts and attention of all those he's speaking to. Keith was informative and exuded charisma and authenticity during his speech. I believe he left his audience enthused, elevated and enlightened. Keith is an innate motivator!"

Cortney Nick

Assistant Vice President

Store Manager

“I have known Keith for a short time, but in that time I have gained an awesome brother in Christ! His story is a great testimony to what God can do when a man truly turns himself over to God. He has been broken, he's lost everything, yet he still smiles and glorifies God with his words and his life. God has restored all that he's lost and more! He is a man who has been given the God given talent of public speaking, allow him to grace your ears!”

Dorothy A Pearson-Smith

Branding Developer

Dorothy is co-founder of In the Gap Motivational, LLC and wife to Keith. She is a word connoisseur who instantly recognized that there was something uniquely different about him. After engaging in numerous conversations, courtship, and then marriage, the two knew that now was the time to present the vision that was given to Keith  in 2014 to the world. Dorothy is a graduate of South University in Columbia, SC with a degree in Legal Studies. She now uses that knowledge to support Keith with the launching of In the Gap Motivational, LLC. She oversees an array of responsibilities (i.e. Director of Operations, Web Designer and Social Media Manager).

Disclaimer: In the Gap Motivational, LLC was created so that  Keith's God-given gift can be unleashed to all the world to experience, to forever change lives, to empower and to encourage those who may appear to be in hopeless situations. Some entities discourage talking about God and faith due to federal regulations. If your business, facility or group follows these guidelines, that is acknowledged. Hence, Keith may not be the speaker for you, for it is by and through God's hand alone that we are able to  navigate this vision.
