Do you all know my friend Jeanne Robertson? She is a nationally beloved speaker and a personal favorite of mine as well! Sweet Jeanne is changing her travel schedule to be here, and we are so fortunate to have her as our special guest this year at the Southern Lady Celebration! She was so excited to be invited back—and could we really have Celebration without her?
Here is a little excerpt about Jeanne from her website so that you can get a glimpse of the joy and laughter that we will experience at the event!
“Jeanne Robertson is a professional speaker who specializes in hilarious humor based on her life experiences. Speaking to thousands of people annually, she utilizes her positively funny style to illustrate that a sense of humor is much more than a laughing matter. It is a strategy for success.
“Other speakers might be as witty as Jeanne. Some might even be as tall. (Barefooted with her hair ‘mashed’ down, she’s 6’2″ in her size 11B stocking feet.) But nowhere will you find a speaker so adept at turning personal experiences into funny material that does more than elicit laughter. This Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant, ‘Yearrrrrrrrrrrs ago,’ quoting Jeanne, uses her down-home Southern drawl to leave her audiences laughing . . . and thinking about her message.
“Jeanne’s success as a humorist has not gone unnoticed by her peers. She has been awarded every top honor in her profession, including the top award in professional speaking, The Cavett Award. She is also a member of the Speakers Hall of Fame and recipient of the Toastmasters International Golden Gavel Award. They like her back home, too. The NC Press Association named Jeanne its 2001 North Carolinian of the Year. Most recently, the National Speakers Association honored Jeanne with its Master of Influence Award.”
There is so much more I can share, but I think it is clear what a delight she is! I am so looking forward to meeting some of you at the event!
