Mikki Williams

Explorer of Life & People


Mikki Williams, CSP is an explorer.  An explorer of life and people and especially of herself.  A lady with eclectic tastes and a multitude of talents, she is an inspirational humorist and business motivator specializing in business dynamics and human potential.  Internationally recognized as a speaker, trainer, consultant, author, business and life coach, radio & TV personality, entrepreneur extraordinaire and “mensch” (Yiddish for very real human being).  

Known for her flamboyant style and infectious energy, Mikki is the unexpected, a one-of-a-kind talent, original, refreshing, outrageous and smart. Her big personality wows audiences because of her authenticity. She has a dynamic ability to communicate with her audience, delivering practical information in a down-to-earth style.  Mikki will not only light a fire of enthusiasm, she helps audiences internalize all the materials so it doesn't wear off. It takes more than nurturing to make ideas take root: she is a catalyst for change. She gets rave reviews and standing ovations for her spectacular presentations. There is a fundamental humanness to her presentations, as she takes audiences through a life's worth of emotions and experiences.

Whether addressing the prestigious Million Dollar Round Table, or sharing the platform with Peter Drucker or Marcus Buckingham, her unique storytelling is transformational, thought provoking and she holds her audience members accountable to action. A highly sought after speaker, Mikki provides take home messages that improve the quality of people’s lives.  Her unique audio visual aids, not power point, or computer generated graphics but Play-Doh, PIES cards, customized goal bands, have made her programs more memorable and fun.  When people laugh, they relax, they learn more. Mikki believes in the power of humor in all programs whether inspirational or business skills.

Mikki does her homework by researching each industry and client, pre-interviewing the attendees, using industry jargon and customer-izing each presentation to provide the most value. A keynoter who comes in early to meet and greet attendees so she can incorporate their names and the vignettes she has learned about into her program, making it more relevant. Mikki reads several books a month to keep up with the latest in business and personal development.  She will do everything to make her bureaus and meeting planner look like a star (well, almost anything, she doesn't do floors or windows:-)

In addition to Mikki Williams Unltd.-her speaking, training, consulting firm and Coaching, etc...-her coaching enterprise, she is the Chair of CEO peer groups advisory boards affiliated with Vistage International, the world's leading executive organization with 15,000 members and a resource speaker for their worldwide network.

An Enthusiologist™ who went from dance choreographer through nine successful careers to word choreographer, she mixes entertainment and humor with business savvy and knowledge to share insight and inspiration for life changing impact.  From the corporate world to the ever changing world we live in, she is a breath of fresh air; outrageous, fun, stimulating, informative and most of all, real!
