Dr. Will Miller Speaker Biography

Our modern American culture is fast-paced and ever-changing, causing ongoing stress in many areas of our lives. It is a well-established fact that change, any change, causes stress. In the workplace, this byproduct of our quest for success is played out in many ways: absenteeism, high turnover, decreased productivity and overall job dissatisfaction, to name a few. Ultimately, these factors negatively impact the bottom line.

Dr. Will Miller delivers a unique message of how our connections to others provide a potent source of strength in achieving life balance. His book, Refrigerator Rights, is based on 14 years of social science research in the area of culture and interpersonal relationships. His aim is to show the connection between our loss of intimacy with people in our lives and the stress and disconnection that we feel in everyday life.

Dr. Miller presents his inspirational message with the expertise that includes years of study and experience as well as humor. His authority of four graduate degrees and years of experience as a therapist and teacher assure his credibility as a speaker. His 15 year background in stand-up comedy, headlining at comedy clubs and working as an opening act for many celebrities, assures his gifted ability to entertain.

Dr. Will Miller is a popular speaker in the corporate world, most recently speaking to Microsoft, IBM, Citi Group, Prudential and Merrill Lynch. He currently teaches a class in Communications at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

If you are looking for someone who will energetically and humorously guide your organization from change through stress to a solution, Dr. Will Miller is the speaker who will give your audience something to truly take away.

The Loneliness Solution!
The United States Surgeon General has issued an alarm that the crisis of loneliness is the most significant health urgency in modern American life. Dr. Will has been researching and speaking about this growing problem for a decade and it is documented in his best selling book ‘Refrigerator Rights: Creating Connections and Restoring Relationships” written with his Purdue University colleague Dr. Glenn Sparks. His presentation focuses on the unique American habit of serial relocation and then failing to rebuild necessary close relationships. The presentation hits home as both diagnosis and prescription for returning to a connected and happy life, no matter your age and stage. The presentation is funny, as only a professional standup comedian can deliver, and based on state of the art science and experience. A penetrating hour!

Group Therapy: Find Your Path to Happiness & Mental Health! Dr. Will’s One Hour Healing Session
Where do people go when mental health treatment resources are scarce or not available? With wait lists of months and more to see a professional for help with anxiety and depression, people are suffering in silence, trying to cope until a resource opens up.

He is a certified P.T.S.D. clinician who serves critical care professionals including law enforcement and first responders.

His experience with front line professionals brings triage to help people return to mental and physical calm in the interim. His keynote, delivered live or virtually, offers the latest neuroscience has to offer. A therapist with years of experience, Will is a former professional standup comedian and television personality. Your group will learn, change and laugh. It’s a wonderful hour with solid takeaways for all.

Mobility & Technology: An American Health Crisis

And importantly, a long term solution for the distress we all feel. A great experience for everyone.

What works? Dr. Will’s presentation, filled with research insights and humor, guides teachers into new areas of self care and a renewal of energy even while coping with this noble work.
