Carol Hamilton has been a storyteller her entire life—and many of her stories have even been true! Everyone thought her dramatic flair would lead to a career on the stage, but it would be her first clients that got the last laugh. She began her consulting journey as a performance coach to comedians in Los Angeles, helping them maximize their stage presence and comedic timing.

Today, after more than a decade of experience in adult education, she’s a certified professional coach who works with corporate executives and technical experts to enhance their executive presence and communication skills. Her mission is to help complex thinkers share their ideas in a clear and compelling way.

Through private coaching and interactive seminars, Carol has spent the past 15 years working with leaders from top organizations such as Best Buy, GE, Intran Electronics, Innoventure, Clemson University’s Professional Development Program, the Minnesota State Colleges & Universities Association, and numerous other business organizations. She knows a lot about the challenges of being on stage, since she’s appeared on many, including TEDxGreenville, a platform for creative minds to share their knowledge and passion on a variety of topics which are available for viewing on She has also been a guest on numerous television and radio talk shows.

Her passion for exploring new thought has led Carol to travel extensively, author a book (of stories, naturally), publish poetry, and record CDs.
