Always drawn to a powerful story and meaningful connection, Billi is a natural borne story-teller. She loves to make people laugh, smile and make them think. Given she's already been story-telling through her photography and writing, it's been an obvious and natural progression to do so in front of an audience as well.
Miller speaks from her heart and no matter what topic she's speaking on, there are most often wet eyes in the room. She speaks poignantly on not only the contributions of women in farming, but about how overcoming a childhood and life of adversity has led her to where she is today; celebrating and honouring other women. She is skilled at using both her personal experiences and those through her work to engage and connect her audience. She leaves conference and gathering attendees moved, encouraged and inspired.

"I am struggling to put into words how impactful Billi is when she public speaks. Her courage to tell her personal stories, along with her empathy and passion for the Agriculture way of life is second to none. Every time I have had the privilege to hear Billi speak, she speaks from the heart and as a result, she brings the room to tears - tears of happiness, remembrance and nostalgia. Everyone leaves the room with a fresh perspective and a gentle reminder about how important our support groups (friends, family, community) are in our lives. Billi is one powerful woman due to her welcoming presence, her strong voice and most importantly, the way she connects with the individuals she speaks to - even in a large room."
