Suzie Humphreys

Motivational Humorist, Powerful, Timely, Hilarious!

Suzie Humphreys is one of the most compelling speakers on the platform today. As she takes her message from corporations to conventions, from hospitals to classrooms, she is at home with people of all ages and all walks of life. Her ability to work with her clients to create an atmosphere of relaxation and fun enables the audience to not only remember what she said, but GET IT! Her first question to the client is "What do you want the audience to leave with?"

Suzie's a different kind of humorist...a different kind of motivator...slightly off center in her style the way your oldest and best friend is...honest and open, but sensitive to the painful side of life. The side that is one step away from joy! She lifts, jolts, and nurtures her audiences and they love every minute of it. She makes them laugh until they swear they can't laugh anymore...and then she grabs them again. When she leaves the stage there remains the unmistakable warmth of having been touched, and the unshakable affirmation that whether ordinary or extraordinary, through good times or bad, caught in mid-frailty or new accomplishment, life really is the greatest thing ever!

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, done musical comedy and motion pictures. She has been fired, been broke, 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.

Suzie received one of the longest standing ovations on record from the National Speakers Association when she spoke to 2,500 of her peers at their convention in Palm Springs, California. At the time they invited her to speak, she didn't even know who or what the organization was. As a matter of fact, she didn't even have a brochure or a business card. When the phone rang, she answered it. She was grounded in the philosophy that if someone seeks you out, it must be meant for you to go! Today, she still subscribes to that theory. She loves to go wherever she's sent!

Motivational speaker Suzie Humphreys is about saying "yes" when it would be easier to say no! She is about teaching others how to motivate themselves and to see life through the eyes of optimism rather than fear and self doubt. She is about believing that you can do anything you want to do and enjoy getting there, heartbreak and all! Whether it is the challenge of change or acceptance...in relationships or situations...in the home or on the job...Suzie Humphreys helps people to rise to the occasion with all the vigor and enthusiasm that living this wonderful life demands.

“I Can Do That!”

Suzie has a way with laughter, poignant stories and jump-start inspiration, of confirming that fear doesn’t have to be the motivating force that stops us from living life to it’s fullest. We say we will “one day!” One Day comes and goes and we are left regretting that it was not life that passed us by at all but rather our decision to LIVE IT! This is about saying “yes” instead of “no”…about not telling ourselves “we can’t,” “it’s too hard,” I’ll never be able to”…This presentation is perfect for corporate, education or anyone who needs a lift up not from outside, but from within.

“Life is What Happens to You While You’re Making Other Plans”

Take a roller coaster ride through Suzie’s failures at breakneck speed and discover at the end of the ride that those same failures turned out to be the “very best things that ever happened to her.” This is her most requested topic and is for anyone who is going through depression, cancer treatments, divorce, job change or demand…anything that forces us to grow. Hilarious, moving and unforgettable.

“We’re ALL Walking Around With IT!”

In a day and age of new ailments, old regrets, fears of growing old and anticipation of growing up….our mind is turned upside down by fear and regret. In fact, we’ve become so used to being “unhappy or scared about something” that we consider it normal.

Facing those fears is exactly the trick to shrinking them! Rather than trying to escape them….what if instead, we just confronted and accepted them? After all, “before a situation can be transformed it must first be accepted!”

“Looking for the Laughter!”

Finding the humor in the midst of desperation, anger or fear is not an easy task. Sometimes, however, we are able to see it years later…inlooking back. How wonderful to see it during the “chaos.” As always, Suzie’s stories are probably yours, just told in a different voice!
“Please Pick Up After Yourself, Your Mother Doesn’t Work Here!”

We all have those people in our lives. The ones who are in our face an know how to push our buttons. It does, after all, boil down to relationships! Suzie shares the most significant of hers and frankly and humorously tells how she learned to focus on what is right about others. If you’re willing to change your thinking…this is the presentation.

“Suzie: Where is Your Faith?”

This one hits close to home. It centers around her twelve year old son who went to bed happy and well adjusted and woke up at thirteen possessed! For the next five years, she and her husband couldn’t get him to do it the way they wanted him to do it. This is about letting go and learning to quit trying to control everything and everybody in our path. Suzie’s strong faith is the constant in her very busy life. She shares how she invites God into everything. He is not just “an occasional” companion when you need Him…but an ever present source of strength and joy and humor and courage when you’re called upon to be more than you ever thought you could be!

testimonials_logos_usepaUnited States Environmental Protection Agency

I am writing to thank you again for your amazing presentation at EPA’s Fourth National Customer Service Conference. You had us all in the palm of your hand from the first story to the last. We laughed, we cried, and we stood and cheered when you finished, everyone wishing you’d keep talking and sharing your warmth and wisdom. People are still raving about how you made them feel about you, and more important, how you made them feel about their own potential to do good, to achieve and to tackle anything that comes their way. If ever again I have the opportunity to recommend or select a motivational speaker for a conference, there’s no doubt in my mind that Suzie Humphrey’s name is at the top of my list.

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed and benefited from your presentation to our Lands Congerence in San Diego on June 26. I have never left a presentation feeling so good and knowing that I could take on the world. I have heard many different motivational speakers and presentations over my thirty-five years with the Bureau of Reclamation, but none gave me the boost that you and yours did. The philosophy of “I can do it” fits me to a tee, and you reminded me to never give up on it.

NET Marketing Alliance

You have the ability to absolutely light up a room and people respond so well to your inspiring and motivational message. You never fail to make people feel as though success is imminent if we only have the courage to try. I always look forward to hearing the laughter and watching the reaction of the crowd as they listen to your personal accounts of triumph. At our last event, I took an informal poll and asked people who their favorite speaker of the day had been. Their unfailing answer was “Suzie, the CAN DO Lady”.
