presentation was absolutely fabulous!"
Top Women Advisors Winner's Circle (Barrons Magazine)
"Carol Scott served as our patient advocate, and she gave us hope where there was only fear and despair. She made contacts starting late at night when we first discussed our situation. She was able to get us in the next day with the best person in the field. She then stuck with us through bad, then better, then scary times, never letting go of my hand and getting us to the best specialists. Carol's knowledge, confidence and ability to "open doors" is unrivaled. She is a savior."
Senior VP, Morgan Stanley (2017)

Here’s what I can say from the heart: Dr. Scott will bring and warm, inviting and informative tone to your conference. Her “bedside manner” is thought-provoking and enlightening. Attendees will walk away energized for change and equipped with the tools to do so. Stress is, and will always be a part of our lives, but Dr. Scott will offer your audience life changing instructions that are meaningful, effective and easy to implement.
- E.W. Consulting Group Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Purchase, NY
Thank you for an excellent session at the NEW conference. I am doing two power pauses during the work day and actually feel a difference…!!! More energy and more focus. I also went home and talked to my partner and that went well, too…. Of course, she had many suggestions on how I can be a better partner…I hope our paths cross again down the road.
- California Governors Conference For Women
“Carol presented a wealth of information in a captivating, high-energy, interactive format that really stimulated thinking (and action!) on the important topic of managing stress. I walked away with more than a few tips and tricks, in addition to facts that will stick with me well into the future.”
- Jennifer Kohler, Senior Associate, Advisory Services, Catalyst
“Although it was quite a lot of material to present in an hour, I think Carol did a wonderful job sustaining a high level of energy (which, in turn, elevated the level of energy in the room). The piece that was most valuable to me was our organization having a common language to speak about the types of stress and solutions. I also found it valuable to discuss solutions to stressors with co-workers. ”
Rachel Soares, Senior Associate, Research, Catalyst
“Today’s session was valuable because while I already knew most of the information and techniques presented (and have taught this information to others while in graduate school for clinical psychology!), I don’t always remember to stop and apply the techniques in my own life. I also enjoyed the presenter’s energy – Carol is obviously a busy woman, and seeing her find the time to come to Catalyst and present with such vigor was inspiring.”
Liz Mulligan-Ferry, Associate, Research, Catalyst
“Carol’s presentation was a great reminder on how we can and should control the daily effects of stress. Power pauses for all!”
Amber Schmidt, Associate, Western Region, Catalyst
“Very useful. Lots of great info packed into a short time. I would like to share this with my friends, sisters, and adult daughters!”
Mary Boughton, Senior Director, Western Region, Catalyst
…thank you so much for your help.
Your conversations have made all the difference for me…my husband tells me he can see a difference.

Carol I laid out my proposal. He has some issues with my “conditions” and he wants to talk this weekend. I feel better letting him know what is important to me. I’ll try to reach him after church on Sunday. Yes – I’m going to church! I went last Sunday, and I’m going again tomorrow!! I’m going to join the church (as soon as I can reach Sister XXX to complete the application). Thanks for nudging me to see I wanted this again in my life. Also, XXX and I have been meeting 3 times per week at my home to work out. That’s going very well….I know I wouldn’t be where I am without you—thank you is not enough.

“…Carol Scott is an outstanding coach for executives. I know when I refer clients to her they are in good hands. She has created a truly unique service. She looks at the whole person and gives advice that is both beneficial to the company and to her clients. She brings a very balanced perspective to wellness that takes advantage of her medical background and experience with people. Carol also “sticks with it”. Our research on follow-up clearly shows that ongoing interaction is the key to making positive, long-term change happen. Dr. Scott goes beyond helping her clients create a strategy for wellness – she helps her clients make sure that the strategy is implemented and achieves results.”
- 2010 Workshop Participant
The stress management coaching during the retreat for my management team exceeded expectations. After the weekend i talked privately to each division chief and they indicated that it was valuable for their role in the organization and their personal life. Your presentation was very specific and included great prevention and stress reduction techniques.
- Hospitality Industry Client

- Finance Industry Client
I found the concept of managing stress and understanding that stress can provide an advantage a helpful tool. The event created an awareness for me to think about and understand my stress levels, and how to take action when needed to prevent it from reaching an overwhelming level.
- 2010 Workshop Participant
The message of not letting the uncontrollable stressors impact me the way I have in the past was significant – this will help me handle these going forward in a more productive manner.
- 2010 Workshop Participant
The scenarios on how to approach people from your team regarding sensitive subject areas or ineffective behaviors was extremely helpful – I wish we had time for more examples.
- 2010 Workshop Participant
It was helpful to be reminded that some level of stress is appropriate and good to allow me to continue progressing as a professional. Reviewing the health impacts of long term stress was also helpful.
- 2010 Workshop Participant
“I just wanted to express my sincere thanks to you for being a part of such a wonderful event! I have heard nothing but positive comments and it is being held as the best ever conference with the best line up of speakers. None of this would be possible without you and your colleagues input. It truly was a pleasure working with you and hopefully will not be a one off. You were a vital part in making a remarkable day and creating a positive change for all that attended your session. Your impact was clear with the times I tried to catch up with you and kept having to stop because of people thanking you! Outstanding…”
- DG, Meeting Planner
“I just wanted to let you know that we had the privilege to have Dr. Carol Scott at my organization this past week. Dr. Scott provided an informative brief titled “Team Work in Service of a Critical Mission” to over 750 employees followed by four individual sessions on “5 Simple Steps to Stress Management” and “Resilience: The Critical Ingredient for Health & Success in 2010.” As you know, she is a dynamic leader and speaker with an engaging personality. She provided a great perspective to my employees, and I was grateful for the opportunity to engage with her.”
- PW, Department Head, NAVSEA
“Are you sitting down? What can I say—I did it! I kept the appointment with my doctor, used your suggestions. I told her how I really feel. She listened differently. I feel better and will stay with her. She asked me why I hadn’t brought up something before, I just told her, “…this is part of my new work/life balance program – mapped out by a very persistent Dr. Carol Scott!’.”

“…thank you so much for your help. Your conversations have made all the difference for me…my husband tells me he can see a difference”
-DKY – Executive Director of National Association
“Dr. Scott's workshop equips participants with the tools to identify stressor in our lives and how to combat the effects by not reacting in a negative manner which would increase stress. Her workshop is excellent and I would highly recommend your attending or at least reading her new book. We all have stress in our lives that’s a given but her approach gives us the tools needed to reduce the stress we all encounter.”
- Sheree Johnson
Civil Rights Director, U.S.Forest Service
“Dr. Scott is such a dynamic and creative person. She has the ability to present information in such a spontaneous and engaging manner. I highly recommend Dr. Scott to speak to your group. She is very inspirational in her presentations and can motivate all participants. She captivates her audience. She will make you meeting a success
- Association of American Medical Colleges
“Dr. Carol Scott is an outstanding speaker and coach for women professionals and executives alike. I met Carol Scott at the Women in Leadership Summit and attended three of her wellness sessions. She grounds her presentations in the latest scientifically and medically based performance research. Carol provides breadth and depth of useable content that provide value added to participants long after the workshop is over. Folks leave with specific action items that they can actually implement. Carol gains credibility with her audience in two ways. First, her character and strong commitment to helping others is demonstrated from the moment that she enters the room and greets participants.
Secondly, her competency both from a medical perspective and her experiences in coaching women executives shines through her presentations. In a conversational manner, she delivers technical content in an engaging way that facilitates understanding and dialogue among bright, but non medical experts. Additionally, it’s obvious that Dr. Carol Scott deeply understands the ongoing struggles of finding one’s “best stress”. Because she lives what she teaches and grapples with conflicting priorities, she conveys a genuineness that many executive women professionals desire from a coach or speaker.
For organizations who continue to look for ways to incorporate diversity into their cultures, it’s evident that Dr. Scott excelled during times that were far more challenging than those we face today. As a result, she relates to a wide range of audience members, diverse and non-diverse alike. Because I’ve seen many speakers over the years, I’m a tough critic and judge of seminar speakers. For me to take time from my endless tasks to write a testimonial letter, speaks volumes. Dr. Carol Scott provides knowledge, inspiration to audiences. By engaging and providing me with useable information that will help me find and maintain my “best stress” on and off the job, she exceeded my expectations

“Thank you Dr. Scott! It was great to have you as a presenter for the California Governor Conference for Wome. You were a perfect fit. I think each of the two thousand or so women in the room were totally engaged by your facts and stories. They will be better and smarter health care consumers because of your talk. I really liked how you were effective in getting the audience on their feet and talking with each other—then right back to listening to your core message. You were in command on the podium—a real natural.

“Dr. Scott has developed a groundbreaking program. She has been bringing her wisdom to us for several years…this audioCD lets everyone in on her life saving secrets

The stress management coaching for my management team exceeded expectations. After the weekend I talked privately to each division chief and they indicated that the coaching was valuable and instructive. Several of us are not watching the evening news as often as we were in the past. I think the timing of your session was perfect because all of my managers were dealing with stress in the work place or personally at home. In addition this was the first time many of us learned the specific relationship between stress and certain illnesses.
Usually stress classes in the work place focus on the causes of stress with a brief mention that other health problems can occur. Your presentation was very specific and included prevention mechanisms and stress reduction techniques. I will not hesitate to recommend your stress management coaching to my co-workers and professional friends in other businesses. Again thank you for your assistance and a well orchestrated presentation.
- Director of Support Services, Atlanta Regional Commission
“Thank you once again for your important contribution to the November 2007 Symposium. We are pleased to share with you that the program received an overall satisfaction rating of 98%.

Based on an overall response rate of 66% on the post program evaluations, the average rating for your session was 4.8 out of 5.0. Thank you for delivering an exceptional workshop. Many thanks for your time and attention to this program – we look forward to a continued partnership in 2008!”

“Thank you for the time you spent giving us information on how to reduce stress. I also have high blood pressure and would like to seek other remedies in order to alleviate the need to take medication. The few minutes that we closed our eyes and just relaxed helped me feel rejuvenate for the rest of the afternoon. Until today, I didn’t realize how important it was just to take time out for myself and regroup. We are all so busy in our everyday lives and I admit I am guilty of skipping a break or taking lunch at my desk at work. But those days are over, I will incorporate these times to relax for myself since it will be beneficial to me and my well being. Again, thanks for your visit, hope to see you soon and God Bless.
- UPS, Atlanta, GA
“Thank you so much for caring and coming to our “Lunch N Learn” your passion was evident… my only regret that the whole of UPS could not be present for this session. The short time you were here made a BIG difference.It would be great if we had systematic training that involved everyone. I believe it would enhance the UPS environment for several reasons… it teaches how to first identify that you are stressed; the adverse physical effects of stress and that an individual can devise a strategy to reduce stress. I didn’t realize how stressed I was when I arrived… but was totally rejuvenated, gung-ho and ready to try it again when I got back to my desk. Thanks again for sharing; it was a life altering experience.!”
