A Platform Professional!
Jeanne is a Platform Professional. OK. What does that mean?

Platform Professionals was formed in 1976 by four speakers who had the same standards and philosophy of providing clean humor and the highest quality entertainment with a tailored message. Its purpose was, and still is, to provide meeting planners with a continuing source of professional speakers who specialize in captivating audiences with the perfect combination of message and humor. Dependability and experience are key factors in selecting members of this unique networking organization. The theory is that if a meeting planner uses one of them, he/she will have a similar quality performer for that slot for several years straight - and then have the option of starting over.

Today, the seven current members of the Platform Professionals have all earned the Certified Speaking Professional designation from the National Speakers Association and have been inducted into the prestigious CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame. Two have served as president of the National Speakers Association and three have been presented the Cavett Award, the highest honor in their profession. They maintain offices in Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, OK and Texas. And they are what their name promises, Platform Professionals.
Who is LB?
"Leftbrain," or "LB" as Jeanne lovingly refers to him, is her husband Jerry. Jerry plays an active role in Jeanne's business when he is not playing golf, badminton, table tennis or tennis. He is in charge of areas such as the computer, finances, shipping books and tapes, picking up office supplies and other leftbrain tasks. Please understand. Jeanne and LB have a great relationship. He is happy to do any and all of these tasks and others as long as he still has time to play golf. Several times a month he travels with Jeanne to speeches, usually the ones at golf resorts. He especially likes Hawaii. :)
Where does Jeanne get her material?
Jeanne is well known among speakers, meeting planners and audiences for creating her own material from her life experiences. In her book, Don't Let the Funny Stuff Get Away, she shares her system for gathering so much material. It's must reading for anyone who makes presentations.
