I had the honor of working with Millree at the University of Maryland College Park. He is a gifted, insightful and experienced nonprofit executive. I thoroughly enjoyed partnering with him and unlocking opportunities, achieving shared goals and advancing the University of Maryland to next-level success. I consider him one of my all-time favorite mentors who blessed me with expert insights and guidance. Millree has a keen understanding of the nonprofit sector, the higher-education world and how to help talented professionals find their next best career opportunity and advance their success.  Melissa Belsinger, Professional Fundraiser

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Millree! I was sincerely impressed by his personalized approach to everything, friendliness, and incredible energy that lifts the mood in a second! I am sure that no matter how daunting the career challenges may seem, Millree's optimism and encouragement never fail to lift your spirits and instill confidence. I wholeheartedly recommend Millree to anyone seeking guidance and support in their career journey. With his expertise, positivity, and tailored approach, he will significantly and positively impact anyone he works with! Olga Matskevich, CEO, VA and IT, Inc.

Millree Williams has been an essential part of my career planning and development.  He works on many levels, providing a sounding board and partner to help me explore and articulate my career goals clearly and develop a plan to achieve those goals. One of his unique gifts is the ability to listen deeply, especially when confronting change or obstacles to progress.  His insight helps me to see a challenge from a new perspective to un-stick me from pre-conceptions and to help me move forward in new directions.  His focus on clear outcomes and on accountability that support your emerging/changing goals is also exceptional.  He brings a breadth of skills, experience and knowledge and a deep desire to help his clients move purposefully to achieve their goals.  An excellent partner to have on your journey. Stephen Helgeson, Senior Education Consultant, CEO, Viking Atlas Consulting

By leveraging his strong active listening and interrogative skills, Millree helped me think through problems and potential solutions. In addition, his solid accountability system helped me to enact new strategies so that they would become positive habits to increase productivity and results. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Millree. By challenging my thinking and reticence to certain situations, he helped me to devise strategies to get out of my own way. I highly suspect he'd help any client of his achieve the same breakthrough. Dr. Frieda Wiley, Author, CEO, Medvon Media and Consulting

"As one transitioning a career after 30 years, to say I was at a loss for how to translate my experience and skills into another profession is a vast understatement. As my coach, Millree’s insight, guidance and deep understanding of the professional landscape have been invaluable. He first challenged and then partnered with me to arrive at a place where I clearly know my value and now have the confidence to pave a new path forward. I really enjoy working with him and could not recommend him more highly." Beth Mays, Project Manager, Global Media Distribution, Post Producer

“I know Millree as a fellow coach who truly cares about his clients' welfare and success. One of his key coaching and consulting skills that greatly benefits his clients and FortyPlus is his ability to be a good listener who strives to understand others' viewpoints and offer insightful perspectives with keen awareness and thoughtfulness. I highly recommend working with Millree to advance your goals and enhance your success.” Greg Collins, Leadership Coach and Board Chair, 40 Plus of Greater Washington

“I didn’t feel like I was being “coached.” Although Millree is a friend of mine, he connects like a friend with everyone he coaches. He offered good, practical ideas that he suggested one at a time. He listened, asked questions first and is not at all pretentious that he knows your business. Top notch.”  Michael Purcell, Field Underwriter, Equis Financial

I would unreservedly recommend Millree Williams as a business coach. My 1:1 coaching session with Millree resulted in an immediate productivity boost and broke the logjam on the challenge I was facing. Millree is an active listener who built immediate rapport. Although unfamiliar with my business, he was able to quickly grasp the problem with incisive questions and then pivot to a step by step approach toward problem-solving. Millree suggested ideas that I hadn't previously considered viable and made me accountable to a specific measurable timeline (he also didn't let me sidestep his questions, and pushed back candidly when, at one point, I evaded answering). In short, if you are looking for an effective coach, Millree Williams is an excellent choice. Shelby Slater, Co-Founder, Supercrush

“I've had the pleasure to witness Millree work with groups whose missions on the surface differ, but with his patience and skill he's able to bring them into singular focus and accomplish the task currently in front of them. As someone who is well positioned to manage the political, fiscal and cultural realities that face organizations, Millree is a skilled communicator who can build institutional capacity and who has provided significant direction for several years to our $1B organization. Especially when the issue was particularly sensitive, Millree managed the challenge successfully -- resolving the matter and preserving reputational (read: priceless) assets.” Laura Anderson Wright, University Counsel, University of Maryland College Park

“I had the opportunity to work with Millree on two major efforts at the University of Maryland College Park. The first involved our creating a new school - The University of Maryland School of Public Health and Millree played a significant role in the branding and launch process planning; and, on the rollout of a large research center to be created in the School of Public Health, the Maryland Center for Health Equity. Millree was a joy to work with, very professional, and helped lead those successful efforts. As Dean of the School of Public Health I was very appreciative of his efforts and impact on our work.” Robert S. Gold, former Dean School of Public Health, University of Maryland

“Millree is a top PR professional who manages a complex, multi-level organization with a broad audience ranging from students, parents, and alumni of UMCP to the greater public and all-important state policymakers. He's always balanced, poised, and professional -- a great communicator and strategist for higher education leaders.” John Buettner, Associate Vice President for Digital Communications at Stevenson University

“MiIlree’s and my careers have intersected at a number of points over the past 20 years or so. I have always considered him a first-rate communications and marketing professional, a strategic thinker, and an astute manager of people and projects. He's a warm and engaging person who presents himself well; and is someone with low ego needs who is outstanding in working cooperatively with others. I can recommend Millree most highly.” Roland King, Senior Strategic Communications Advisor, PhairAdvantage Communications
