Meet Beth Stoller, Founder and Principal
Beth Stoller is a relationship-driven person who thrives on connecting great people with great opportunities. Through At the Podium, she gets to combine her talent for networking and her savvy skills when it comes to organization and logistics with her passion for helping people step into their roles as speakers and leaders.
“Helping business professionals, sales people, and entrepreneurs, as well as aspiring and professional speakers, to grow their businesses and advance their careers is something I truly enjoy. I designed At the Podium to be different from other speakers bureaus so I could help people with the desire to speak, connect with the chance to speak.”
She has a diverse professional background to draw from, including accounting, media buying, project management, event coordination, and contract negotiation. She has a true talent for problem-solving, and an absolute belief that everyone has gifts, talents, skills, experiences, knowledge, stories, and/or special messages to share.
“We all have to get started somewhere, and there are many talented speakers out there—hidden gems who should be heard! A great speaker can change your life with the right message at the right time, and that’s what I love about my work… I get to help facilitate those moments!”

On a personal note
Beth has always been, and continues to be an involved parent, active community member, and avid volunteer. Currently, one of her favorite Rotarian volunteer activities is helping to serve a monthly breakfast at the Thomas Merton House in Bridgeport. In the fall of 2015, she had the privilege of traveling with Rotary International to Mombasa, Kenya, as a volunteer for a week of repairing schools.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Beth grew up in Norwalk, CT, and has been a long-term resident of Trumbull, CT, where she lives with Rick, her husband of 35 years, her son Brian, and their dogs Sadie and Pancho. When she’s not working on her business, Beth’s other passions include tennis, photography, jigsaw puzzles and hanging out with family and friends watching a good movie or playing games.
