Put Your Mind At Ease: Hire an Experienced Speaker

Since 1983, Karen has spoken, trained and coached internationally. As an adjunct professor at Regis University, Karen turned students into speakers.

Her combination of solid content, interaction and humor will get you kudos.

“In the ten years that I have been putting together these annual meetings, I have never received near the positive feedback that I have heard on your presentation.”Michael Wild, VP, Parsons Brinckerhoff

Much More Than Motivation

Practical Tools Plus a Wild Sense of Humor

Karen shows how to shake hands

Karen shows how to shake hands

Karen Susman’s energetic style, upbeat attitude and life travels (and travails) will inspire your audience. But, she gives your group so much more. Your group gets tools they need to take action. Weeks, months and years after Karen speaks, your participants will reap results from her presentations.

What makes Karen different?

Meeting planners have asked Karen, “What makes you different?” Other professional speakers speak on Humor, Life Balance, Networking or Presentation Skills. Even a few speak on Building Community Involvement. Sure, Karen has discovered unique tips and solutions to help her audiences deal with their challenges, but what makes her different? After years of pondering, pacing, and pursuing revelation in her decaf drips, an audience member gave Karen the answer. He said, “Other people may speak on your subject matter, but no one does ‘Karen Susman.’ You are an original.”

“You are the cheese sauce on my broccoli!” Keith Philpott, Philpott Photography

She’s got a style all her own

Karen Susman is just plain funny. Her wild sense of humor and ability to see the funny side of situations helped her survive divorce, paralysis, and life in general. Karen is the same approachable person on and off the stage. She appeals to audiences of every age, gender and job title.

Learning laced with laughter

Karen mixes humor, participation and content. Karen doesn’t tell jokes. She doesn’t embarrass her audience. Her spontaneity and willingness to take risks delight the audience. She’ll even surprise your group by composing an original song to reinforce your message.

Karen is fresh, not canned

Hire Karen Susman and you’ll be getting applause, awards, and your own choice parking space. Every speaker advertises that he customizes his programs. Karen’s personalization of each program causes diverse audiences to say, “She really knows us.”

“Your presentation was excellent as was your enthusiastic and upbeat attitude toward the Dairy Council staff and its materials, programs and services. Your participation was a highlight of the meeting.” M. R. Brink, Ph.D. National Dairy Council

Karen won’t use her presentation as an infomercial

Karen’s guidebooks reinforce her presentations, so it’s beneficial to own them. But, as useful as her products are, that’s just how inept she is at promoting them from the platform. She knows why you hired her and it’s not to push her products.

Speaking of publications…

If you’d like Karen to write an article for your publication before or after your meeting, she’d be delighted. This helps you promote the session or conference. It also helps your members by summing up Karen’s message so that learning lasts. When Karen writes an article for you, you save time and energy.
