More than 100 miles
I generally get paid for speaking but make exceptions
Kim spent 10 years running wildly successful “women in business” events within her local Chamber of Commerce. Each year, the events would sell out at 700 seats. In October of 2013, Kim interviewed an award-winning news reporter for one of her Signature “Conversations” about strong, successful women and the struggle between work and life balance. The response was overwhelming. Inspired by the collective strength, energy, and camaraderie born of these events, Kim started Miles In Heels Productions so that she could point her trademark heels in a new direction and bring her skills, energy, inspiration, and outrageous fun to the world beyond. Designed to connect and empower, Miles In Heels inspires the articulation and pursuit of big ideas, by creating communities of talented people whose collective gifts support the goals of the individual.
Recently, I attended a networking event and there were three people who approached me because they recognized my name tag which read, Miles In Heels Productions. They had each known about me from; having attended one of my events, having received one of my promotional emails, or having asked about a great speaker and I had been recommended to them. It was a wildly satisfying feeling to know that my brand stands on its own and represents me completely to the point of recognition. I was proud to connect with these individuals and learn how I had made an impact on them. The greatest compliment I receive is when someone tells me that my energy is contagious and they truly love to read what I post or are motivated to make a change in their life after having attended one of my events.
