Salley Baskey

Sally Baskey received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Arizona in 1975. She taught briefly at the Actors Workshop in Dallas before starting a 25 year career with a major oil company. She has been "acting" like she knows what she is doing ever since. Her jobs have included human resources, telecommunications, facility management, information technology, public relations, corporate gifts and employee communications.

She has always been in an internal marketing or customer service role. Her strength has been in managing technical areas as a nontechnical person. She sees ways to keep things simple, motivate employees, understand the customer needs and she has excellent communications skills. Her creativity allows her to influence employees and management to participate in company programs, events, and training. She uses humor to diffuse difficult situations and deliver motivational messages.

During her career, her trademark character, Ida Mae, has made many appearances spoofing management and numerous reorganizations. Sally Baskey has also provided comic relief at meetings or the entertainment for other company functions and private parties.

Sally Baskey started her own company, RxHumor in 2000. She now performs Ida Mae for corporate meetings and events as well as for private parties. She also presents her new motivational speaking program entitled Laughter, My Drug of Choice, whose message is using humor to get through life's challenges. She has recently published her first book, also entitled Laughter, My Drug of Choice. She lives in Arlington, Texas and has a daughter, SarahBeth, who attends The University of Oklahoma.

Ida Mae Fudpucker

Ida Mae Fudpucker is Sally's original hilariously outspoken character who is not afraid to speak her mind. Her humorous approach in communicating changes and upcoming events to employees and key audiences will be a unique addition to your next program.

Sally uses creative scripting in a presentation that is specifically customized to your audience's needs, including memorizing up to 200 names. A short, pre-event briefing is all that Sally needs in order to gear Ida Mae's message to you corporate objectives. Sally can also attend your conference as an observer and then bring Ida Mae "in" to summarize the main points of the event in a humorous, yet memorable, fashion. Sally takes the initiative and delivers an entertaining program that will still communicate how to deal with difficult situations.

Corporations have repeatedly utilized Ida Mae to defuse awkward issues as well as to introduce change within their organizations. You can count on Ida Mae to make your event memorable...
and informative as well.

Laughter, My Drug of Choice

Life is full of experiences that make us sad, frustrated, mad or those that sometimes put us "over the edge." This highly entertaining and motivational program is based up on Sally's book of the same name. Sally delivers her message of how to deal with change by finding the humor in life's difficult situations. Her entertaining, yet thought-provoking and motivational presentation will leave your audience with a truly pain-relieving prescription for dealing with the challenges of everyday life.

Self-Medicate with Humor

Although audiences will smile and laugh during Sally's entertaining programs, they will also be inspired to find humor in the everyday challenges of life once they leave your event! Attendees will want to implement the many interpersonal skills that Sally presents, an management will discover how, while most productive employees take their jobs seriously, they take themselves lightly. Sally motivates audiences to examine their own communication styles while remaining focused and energized in order to achieve their personal and professional goals.
