  • “There is a lot of pressure when you are planning an event to have a “Really Good” keynote speaker. The keynote speaker really sets the tone for the conference. Vikki Carrel set a great tone for our conference and left everyone with good information and inspiration to take back to the work place. I really enjoyed how her presentation ideas were motivating to do better in the workforce but also in all areas of life.”

Her work as an author and speaker with a focus on developing confidence, leadership, inner strength and self-worth is right in line with the programs Girl Scouts of Utah offers.

  • "I recently had the privilege of hearing Vikki Carrel speak. I was very impressed with her dynamic presentation skills, so I recommended her as a great speaker for our half-day leadership training at Weber State University. Vikki's high-energy presentation included many personal stories and examples that demonstrated her wealth of knowledge and experience. The training was highly interactive as Vikki facilitated our group of over 100 supervisors through three hours of a wide variety of learning activities including personal introspection, pair shares, problem-solving, and group discussions. Her session materials kept everyone engaged and provided great take-away reminders of the concepts and ideas I want to implement for myself and with my team. I highly recommend Vikki Carrel to others wanting to improve empowerment and productivity in their workplace and personal lives."

She provides tools and valuable information for re-framing negative thoughts to improve self image and confidence, and also how to create balance in your life. Vikki not only captures audiences of all ages, but teaches in a way that the lessons learned will stay with you for a life time.

  • "The Mother Daughter Empowerment Seminar was awesome. I learned from it and my daughter learned from it. The presentation was at a level that kids understand…which is very difficult for adults to do today. I am telling everyone about it. The balloon demo was awesome. You made my daughter see that message. When she came home from school she really did say that when she makes choices at school she remembers what the lady at the seminar said and thinks about it before she says anything or makes a decision. We talk about the seminar a lot. Thank you!"

  • "Vikki Carrel’s presentation to our 7th-9th grade girls was very informative. The hands on activities with the balloons and the gossip game have stayed with them and made them really think. Vikki made them feel comfortable, taught them valuable life lessons and entertained them all at the same time. When I see the girls who attended the girls’ forum they still comment on how much they enjoyed it or they’ll make a comment on how they are reframing the negative into positive or they’ll comment on labels.There were obviously lessons taught that they will long remember. Thanks SO much to Vikki for presenting incredibly powerful lessons to girls at an age when they are sometimes very difficult to reach!"

  • "Vikki and Lisa's Mother-Daughter Connection presentation to our 4th, 5th, and 6th grade girls and their mothers was fun and informative. The demonstrations helped accentuate the points they were making with regards to labels, balancing, self image, and empowerment. The girls and their mothers were excited about this presentation. Vikki and Lisa gave valuable information and tools to take home with them in order to continue the conversation and enhance the "connection" over time. I would recommend this presentation to all girls and their mothers! We need to give our girls the power to know they can do anything...this program will help facilitate that!"
