Caroline Adams Miller spoke as my closing keynote at the She Leads 2018 Conference and she was nothing short of specular. I wish that I had more time – half a day, a full day – to provide her expertise and her content to my audience of women entrepreneurs and leaders in NYC. Caroline was a shining star. Her talk was real. It was engaging. It was genuine and it was smart. And the other thing that I was extremely impressed with as a conference producer is that Caroline showed up at the beginning of the day, and her keynote was not until the end of the day. And Caroline participated in the She Leads Conference from the minute that she stepped through the doors until the very very end. She truly is a super star. If you were looking for someone to make an impact for your audience, please consider Caroline as a keynote and opening keynote speaker. She really has a unique gift and way to set the tone. She speaks from the heart. Yet she is super direct, super giving and she tells it likes it is. You need to hire Caroline because she will impact your audience in a very positive incredible way.
From start to finish we were absolutely impressed with Caroline Adams Miller and her team! Caroline not only customized her presentation to meet the needs of our audience, she also went above and beyond helping us get the message out prior to our conference. Her delivery was passionate and practical. Our conference attendees (both parents and educational professionals) are still raving that Caroline was the best public speaker they ever heard. Her team was responsive, thorough and efficient from beginning to end – an absolute pleasure to work with!
You painted a visual picture of why Grit has become something we don’t see because of society. The delivery was intentional and relatable. As a teacher it is easy to feel lost during a presentation at conferences like that because the information is over my head. You balanced that well and we literally still talk about your presentation. It was one of the best presentations on GRIT I’ve seen.
Caroline has inspired us and brought-in a powerful conversation about the way and the type of goals we set within the organization. Furthermore, the open reflection of our strengths and the practices to cultivate GRIT have sparked a new way of approaching the way we can lead our teams, have a real impact in every person through connecting with their purpose, and develop a mindset to have bigger and bolder goals for our organization.
Caroline was an amazing closing keynote speaker at our Educating for Resilience Conference! Her knowledge of grit and what fuels optimal performance is just phenomenal and she is able to dynamically connect with her audience in such an authentic way. Caroline weaves her unique insights with the latest research in psychology to deliver a highly valuable session. We liked her so much, we’re having her back next June!
If you want to get-it-done and make-it-happen, then Caroline Miller is your go-to, must-see speaker. With solid rigorous science and moving stories that captivate and connect, both your heart and mind are engaged to reach your highest aspirations.
Caroline, you delivered what we asked for and more! We’ve had terrific feedback that you were easy to relate to, your stories were relevant, and the research gave your talk credibility for a high-powered audience. Everyone agreed they got rejuvenated, reignited and recommitted to setting and accomplishing meaningful goals.
Caroline’s cutting-edge insights on Grit and Goal Setting are awesome, and so needed in the business world now!
Caroline delivered a compelling presentation calling for women to support each other to thrive! The audience was engaged and inspired. The day was best summed up by one young woman present: “this was exactly what I needed to hear today”. I highly recommend Caroline as a powerful speaker with an important message.
The best way to kick off our inaugural BRG Women’s Leadership Conference was to have Caroline speak and discuss “Getting Grit” with our audience. She brought such dynamic energy and purpose to the event, and it was such a pleasure to work with her, learn from her, and for our attendees to have the opportunity to spend such valuable time with her. She is a true leader and voice for women’s leadership.
Caroline’s message and evidence-based tools provided our membership the support it needs during an extremely difficult time. We loved having her present through Zoom webinar – it was an excellent delivery tool to disseminate her message in an efficient manner.
Caroline spoke to our EO chapter last week and it was one of our best presentations of the year. In a webinar format, it’s easy to lose listeners, but that was not the case at all with Caroline. She was engaging, passionate, and highly knowledgeable. I loved the practicality of her talk and was able to quickly implement some of her suggestions. She was one of our highest rated speakers of the year!
On behalf of the whole team here at LIFE, we cannot thank you enough for your time and insight during the webinar. We have received a lot of positive feedback from members and like them, we definitely all enjoyed listening to you… the current situation provides an ideal opportunity for us all to reflect on bettering ourselves, setting goals and brushing up on that all important Grit – and you have certainly inspired us to do so!
There are some who engage but only a few who truly inspire. When knowledge and wisdom come together, delivered by a wonderfully articulate person with empathy and kindness, you find Caroline Miller. Importantly Caroline speaks such that you feel as if she is talking directly with you. The message is clear and you are animated to put her wisdom and advice into action. No sitting on the fence, no procrastination, you are ready to be a better person.
When I heard Caroline speak at our 15th Anniversary event, her message challenged me to rededicate myself to finishing my memoir that I had started seven years earlier. She helped me see that I didn’t have to have all the right words in order to start again. I just had to dig deep and believe that my story was worth telling. And, that’s what I believe today. I can now add ‘author’ to my resume because her message helped me believe in myself.
Your ‘Finding Mastery & Flourishing course with Mental Health Academy’ is a brilliant, well put together, research-based course Caroline Adams Miller, MAPP! I totally loved it all – thank you for creating it! I’ve been inspired to take action and do things a little differently both personally and professionally. Thank you!
