Rising to the challenge and succeeding
Carolyn takes you on a journey of her personal struggles to succeed, from almost drowning to winning Olympic gold. She re-invented herself after the Olympics, embarking on a sports broadcasting career.
Her “down to earth” presentation is not only refreshing but empowering, giving her listeners the tools to succeed. Whether she is addressing corporate leaders or school children, she shares strategies on how they can reach their potential, through determination and teamwork.
Carolyn talks about coping with change, taking risks and how to overcome the fear of failure. Her speech is not only motivational but entertaining, sharing humorous stories throughout the presentation. She is an animated and passionate speaker who has inspired audiences on how to discover the possibilities in their own lives.
"Dynamic…interesting…engaging…entertaining…" all words which best describe the speech provided to our employees by Carolyn Waldo during our 2009 Campaign launch . . . It was due to the energy of her words that we had such a successful campaign - over $1 million raised - our best ever!

You inspired my “hungry” group of female professionals and business owners with your stories of strategic decisions, overcoming personal challenges, and tremendous life events. You led an active conversation and I knew that we had event success when many of our attendees said, “I am motivated. She is so down to earth!”
