Denise Miller is an acclaimed international Métis storytelling artist and creative communication consultant with a unique ability to engage, entertain and educate while presenting an eye-opening new look at face reading, body language and communication dynamics.

Denise's fun, high content and customizable presentations; The VulnerAbility, The Art & Craft of Storytelling and Body, Mind, Heart & Soul are popular choices at health, education, literacy, library, wellness, and cultural conferences. Her reference book Storytelling for Life is for people working with people through story.

Many years ago Denise was contracted by a local university to teach newly graduating health practitioners to listen with their 'whole selves' to their clients, not to guess or imagine, but to really hear what they said. The depth of this simple request intrigued her and she began a journey to become someone who could deeply hear with her whole self and then teach others to do so.

Denise spent many years learning from many teachers and now uses her personally developed Clear Communication Strategies with clients in sessions and workshops. These strategies have the holistic path of The Medicine Wheel; Body, Mind, Heart and Soul, at the core and demonstrate that clarity about our essential nature and our relationship to all nature brings us ever closer to the wider truth in each of us. Clear Communication Strategies help people to truly see and hear themselves and the others in their lives, accept what they see and then to come from that truth.

Participants learn that by truly connecting and communicating from our essential selves, our heart and soul become more involved in our daily choices. This is the connection that brings the distinctive vitality, passion and juiciness to life that so many are searching for. This is also the connection that enables individual to individual communication in a way that honours each of us.

Denise has presented around the world in keynote, workshop, and public performance. She has performed and facilitated with youth at all levels through post secondary and has been telling stories while teaching outdoor pursuits, coordinating team building and historical curriculum programs for over 25 years. As your speaker, workshop presenter or storyteller Denise brings a unique story to share and communication strategies that will breathe new life and success into all your relationships!

"Every doctor, teacher, nurse, social worker - anyone in a care-giving role - needs to know this. These tools are quick to learn and will soon become a part of everyday connecting and communicating while helping others."
Alberta College of Social Workers Annual Conference participant
"I have shared your perspective with others and we are making more of an effort to let kids be themselves and still find ways to be successful. If you have ever wondered if your stories carried an impact beyond your sessions, you can stop, you have made a difference."
Teacher, Calgary Teachers Convention
"Denise has an ability to connect with people in a practical way; her storytelling portrays unique ways of looking at life. I am very happy to have the opportunity to book her workshop for the 3rd year in a row."
Program Facilitator, Employabilities
"We bring Denise back year after year. The inspiring storytelling, combined with practical ideas is always a winning combination."
