Caroline and I worked together over many years. She was instrumental in successfully building two great companies and executing on tremendous exit events. I relied on Caroline to brainstorm the most challenging problems. She provided highly valuable advice in assessing the team and prospective hires. Caroline helped me articulate strategy to our Company and become a more inspirational leader. She had an uncanny ability to provide me with fresh perspectives and new ideas to navigate our way to a winning path.

The community loved it. We have received tons of positive feedback. Everyone learned a lot, and it really made people think. Many of the pieces that you spoke about were things we really needed to hear. They gave us a reminder of hope and possibility for the future.

Beth Israel Congregation

Caroline Miller gave an excellent keynote at our Admissions Summit and she ensured that her message resonated with our audience. Her team was professional to work with and timely in their responses. Caroline was able to capture the audience’s attention in a virtual setting and keep them engaged. I would highly recommend her for a keynote session!

Altus Assessments

Thank you so much for a wonderful presentation. Your knowledge and experience truly makes you such a compelling presenter. I wish we had more time.

LPL Financial Services

Caroline shared her newest research around goals and grit to over 300 of our key customers and prospects. Her topic is timely and resonated with sales and marketing leaders who are tasked with driving results.

It’s both our pleasure and honor to have had Caroline present her talk to the Middle East Inclusion and Diversity Council. Caroline’s candid style and authenticity won the attention of our MEIDC members immediately. Powerful – loaded with insight, and provided actual tools to support good theories that have been well researched. Thanks for taking the time to share your insight!

Middle East Inclusion and Diversity Council (MEIDC)

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!

Meaghan Barracoso
Director of Admissions and Outreach, Fusion Academy

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.

Erica Lohn
Citizens Academy East

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.

Carlos Puyo
Corporate Director Leadership and Learning, Belcorp

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!

Louisa Jewell
Canadian Positive Psychology Association

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.

Megan McDonough
CEO, Wholebeing Institute

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.

Morgan Stanley

Caroline’s cutting-edge insights on Grit and Goal Setting are awesome, and so needed in the business world now!

Deb Giffen
Director, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

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.

Kimina Lyall
Australian Unity

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.

Meredith Anastasio
Vice President of BRG Branded Events, Berkeley Research Group, LLC

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.

Gregory K. McDonough
Blackburn Captial, Entrepreneurs' Organization, D.C.

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!

Ann Dolin, M.Ed.
President and Founder, Educational Connections Tutoring and Test Prep

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!

Jihane Korban Schmitt
Director-Mentoring and Events, LIFE Lebanon

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.

Simon Murray OAM
Executive Chair - Wellbeing Education Network

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!

Leonie Cutts
Facilitator and Coach

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.

Adrienne Garland
CEO of She Leads Media

Caroline just headlined Girls With Impact’s NextGen Women Leaders Annual Gala Breakfast in NYC and it was a home run. I’ve worked with countless speakers but what makes Caroline a standout is: First, she provides actionable information. Our audience was taking notes and learning ways they can make a difference both in their personal lives and in their workplaces. Second, she is data-driven. I love this. Caroline draws from research – including her own – as well as her unique direct experience having coached many executives. She knows the real inside of what goes on in companies and what needs to be addressed, at a corporate and individual level. Finally, she’s incredibly engaging. She spoke for 30 minutes but everyone wanted more. That’s how you end an event! And others at our event wanted to bring her in as a speaker. Thank you Caroline for your incredible leadership, expertise, authenticity — and helping me to be a better leader.
