"Not only is Carrie a dynamic, engaging and inspirational speaker. Her long term and ongoing support during a year of transition for the sales field was critical to our success. Carrie supported our executive team and sales leaders with strategy & action oriented results. I recommend Carrie for any company who is ready to roll up their sleeves and increase their impact."

"I have never seen anyone hold an audience in the palm of their hand the way Carrie did at our Convocation.

She delighted and inspired faculty, students and local dignitaries equally."

"Carrie is a wordsmith, fast on her feet, can build a message out of a phrase, a song or a scripture, and a woman who doesn’t need notes to drive home a powerful word. I love to put her in front of my people."

Josh Wagner
Patient Mastery

"Carrie is an amazing keynote speaker. She adapted her message perfectly for my audience, stuck to time, confirmed all details before, and was super adaptable when she needed to hold a mic rather than be hands free as expected. The audience loved her energy, stories, humor and important message, and she would definitely be invited back again."


Shannah Albert
Solo Con Attendee

"Another great @WeAreSoloCon conference! So glad I hung out until the end. @CarrieWilkerson [fire emoji]"

Rod Santomassimo
The Massimo Group

"Carrie, is one of the most dynamic speakers we have booked in our 14 years of holding physical and virtual events. She quickly engages the audience and holds their attention throughout her presentation. Her presentation not only resonated with the audience, but her message was shared repeatedly after the conference on both social media and with our community. She is not a speaker that one will easily forget. I highly recommend Carrie to any company looking to motivate and illuminate their audience, inclusive of clients and employees."
