What do you call a successful businesswoman with a vibrant financial advisory practice, over 25 years of sales experience, a background in performing, and a serious shoe habit? Kim Miles! A catalyst for conversation, Kim can start and focus critical dialogue like nobody’s business.
So come join the conversation…and prepare to be inspired!
I love being on stage. Growing up I performed in all my local plays, today I sing in a band, and I’ve even tried my hand at stand-up comedy in the big, bad city — all experiences which developed an unshakable confidence in front of, and engaging, all kinds of people.
As a successful financial advisor with a background in sales, I find that my ease with people gives them comfort with me. So regardless of the topic, that level of comfort and authenticity makes conversations fun. The connections I forge with my clients are what truly put the bounce in my platform-heeled step. And while I love my male and female clients equally, nothing gives me greater joy than making connections with — and between — women. Because, let’s face it: men and women interact completely differently. It’s an irrefutable truth about which movies have been made, lectures delivered, and books written.
And it's why Miles in Heels was born.
Having run wildly successful women’s events within my local Chamber of Commerce over the past decade, I've been inspired time and again by the strength, energy, and camaraderie those events brought out in both the participants and attendees. It is nothing short of amazing, and it's why I knew it was time to point my trademark heels in a new direction — to bring my skills, energy, inspiration, and outrageous fun to the world beyond.
Miles in Heels is the way I combine my passion for connecting people with my unique ability to create a relaxed, convivial atmosphere (like having drinks with your besties!) — the kind of atmosphere where people open up and share. I truly believe it’s a conversation, not a presentation. 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.
And if I can generate that kind of energy and motivation while wearing outrageous heels…even better!
I’m leveraging my business savvy, confidence and love of stilettos to change the way women get what they want.
My true passion: working with women who have trouble finding their voice or, in some cases, the confidence to start down that road to achieve their dreams. My ability to inspire women and offer words of encouragement is what drives me to help provide a real blueprint on how to get there. My mantra: “You don’t have to get it perfect; you just have to get it going.” A serial connector, I relate to people in an authentic way and I thrive on motivating them to open up their circles and become a catalyst to connect with others.
As an in-demand motivational speaker, I am hired by organizations of all sizes to engage and empower their employees, students and members. Clients include Massachusetts Conference for Women, Babson College, Women's Bar Foundation, Goulston & Storrs Counsellors at Law, Colwen Hotels, Bay Path University, College of The Holy Cross, Winchester Hospital/Lahey Health, Worcester Women's Leadership Conference, Women in Technology International, Yankee Dental Congress, Bryant University Women's Summit and Regis College, just to name a few. I am also a proud member of the Innovation Women Speakers Bureau, The WINLab Coaching Circle at Babson College, and the Boston Women in Media and Entertainment Speakers Bureau.
Over the last 14 years, I have built a comprehensive network of friends, fans and followers by producing networking and fundraising events that have received rave reviews and left attendees wanting more. Through my various events, workshops and one-on-one training sessions, I use my fearless out-of-the-box strategies and propensity for having fun to help my clients pursue their dreams. Such as:
The Second Chapter Sisterhood: a community of like-minded women who gather in a casual, social setting to inquire and inspire, and to help each other over the barriers between themselves and their goals. This networking and skill-building series, facilitated by yours truly, is for women in transition and is designed to both elevate the spirit and educate the mind. Think of it as a sorority with substance … for adults!
Getting Past Hello: a unique, out-of-the box curriculum focusing on the art of creating lasting business relationships. With more than 40 years of combined professional experience, Victoria Nessen of NK&A and I have developed a fresh and engaging program that gives people the necessary tools to take charge of any networking situation. Meeting people is one thing; taking those introductions to the next level and “Getting Past Hello!” is something else entirely.
Mojo Masterclass: a four-part “Confidence Coaching” session — something everyone needs. Every day, women share with me their struggles to silence the negative self-talk that prevents them from taking those first steps toward achieving their dreams. From the seasoned business woman to the tentative entrepreneur incubating a killer idea, everyone needs a cheerleader once in a while, a savvy outside perspective to help motivate them and point them in the right direction. Start off with a 15-minute virtual coffee break session and we’ll assess what we can do to boost your mojo!
Whether you attend one of my programs or look to Miles in Heels Productions to produce that much needed spark for your next event, always remember what my very favorite good witch, Glinda, said: “You had the power all along, my dear.”
I’m just here to remind you.
