“Carole Brody Fleet has proven to be a creative and relatable presenter who our families found ‘funny’, ‘engaging’, and ‘amazing’. She met every expectation of providing hope and healing to the families of the fallen and we will love to have her present again and again.”
Kimberly Taylor, Project Manager, TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors); Washington D.C. (military)
“Carole’s reflections of her authentic experiences resonated with the reality of our guests; their experiences of the death of a loved one and the lifetime-challenging journey thereafter. Carole’s humor and compassion mixed with her “tell it like it is” style makes sense to those who are walking this road; she “gets it” and her message is one that helps others understand that. Once you experience Carole, you will know that you do not walk this journey through grief alone. We are so fortunate to have experienced her wisdom.
Donna Altepeter, Agnesian HealthCare / Agnesian Medical Center, Fond due Lac, Wisconsin
"I wish to express our heartfelt appreciation to you for your presentation. The information you present is so practical and unpretentious and totally responsive to each individual's journey, wherever they find themselves at the moment in time. It is a welcome reprieve from messages full of 'shoulds' and judgment. You light up the room with your warmth and genuine devotion to sharing your experience in service to others and you do this for people whenever you speak".
Dr. Adrian Windsor, Program Director, The Inside Edge Foundation for Education, University of California at Irvine, Irvine, California
"Carole is an extraordinary woman by any standards. From major adversity, she reinvented herself and started Widows Wear Stilettos to help others going through pain and suffering. It has been my pleasure to know and be inspired by Carole for years now, and when I see her press releases, I know she is doing great work somewhere. If you get the chance to meet Carole or see her speak, take the time to do so - it is time well spent".
Mark Amtower, Host, “Amtower Off Center”, WFED, 1050 AM (WASHINGTON D.C.) and author, “Why Epiphanies Never Occur to Coach Potatoes”
“You did a fantastic job. Our agents and employees really get the message when it comes from someone who has experienced the life events you have experienced.”
Carol Carey-Odekirk, Corporate Communications / Public Relations, State Farm Insurance Companies, Bloomington, Illinois
"Carole Brody Fleet gave a really wonderful talk and made a hugely successful connection with those in attendance. She delivered a heartfelt and emotionally powerful message that was laced with brilliant dashes of humor, which provided ample levity during her discussion of how to deal with, overcome, and move past the grief that comes with the loss of a loved one. Carole also tailored her talk to focus on our LGBT community, providing insightful responses to questions posed by the audience, as well as sharing relevant experiences and anecdotes garnered from her years as a motivational speaker. It's obvious from her discussion of the topic that she has done due diligence and provided those experiencing grief from the loss of a partner with a much-needed resource in her book. We wouldn't hesitate to have Carole back again for another opportunity to hear a great speaker with a very important message."
Kurt Thum, Adult Programming / Event Manager, West Hollywood Public Library, West Hollywood, California
"Carole Brody Fleet's presentation was a gift to everyone. Ms. Brody Fleet shares her stories with humor and honesty and her vibrant personality and witty delivery provide both comic relief and a lighthearted approach. Our participants responded to not only her generous spirit, but to her message of hope. I highly recommend Carole Brody Fleet as a presenter to any audience that wants to laugh, learn, and look forward to tomorrow".

Through her books, speaking, TV, and radio appearances Carole helps countless women not just survive but thrive after becoming widowed.
