Suzie’s Background is as varied as her audiences. From administrative secretary to Television Talk Show Host, to 20 years in Radio, she has “hobnobbed” with movie stars and politicians, interviewed the great and the “near” great. She has made hundreds of commercials, musical comedy and motion pictures. She literally “halted” nine yellow Caterpillars for Clint Eastwood; shot rifles with John Wayne, Danced the polka with Lawrence Welk and rode a run-a-way stallion in a buffalo roundup in Licking Springs,Missouri. She has been fired, been broken, been disappointed, been a petrified expectant mother at 40 years old and lived her life with a passion for learning not only how to be better, but to see things differently.
She has crissed-crossed the country speaking to over 2,000 groups. She has stayed in fancy hotels, and “mom and pop motels” as she takes her message from corporations to National Conventions, from hospitals to classrooms. She is at home with people of all ages and all walks of life. Men and women relate to her because she tells the truth about herself…her failures, her arguments with her husband, how she wrestles with her hilarious but painful relationship with her 95 year old mother and her battle with Breast Cancer. Her message of honesty and plain spoken values resonates in the hearts of all people who are not just trying to “survive” the times but THRIVE in them. She believes that you can do anything you decide to do and enjoy getting there… ”heartbreak and all”.
Her own personal wistful and funny stories prove her point that “regardless of what the situation or the problem in the job or the relationship, it is NOT the problem…that’s the problem. It is MY THINKING ABOUT THE PROBLEM. It is close to the bone stuff! It is everybody’s “stuff”. As Suzie says “my stories are probably yours, just told in a different voice”.
As a motivational and inspirational humorist, Suzie Humphrey has received one of the longest standing ovations on record from the National Speakers Association when she spoke in front of her peers at their convention in Palm Springs, California. In 2002 at their National Convention, she received the Council of Peers Award of Excellence and was inducted into the National Speaker Hall of Fame. In 2004 Suzie was inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame and, as Suzie says “All that for a D minus student!” You never know do you?
Whether it is the challenge of change or acceptance…. in relationships or situations, in the home or on the job.. Suzie Humphreys helps you rise to the occasion with all the vigor and enthusiasm that living this wonderful life demands.read less
