presentations do more than make people laugh. All of her

seeing the humor in stressful situations.

building, technology, life balance, aging,
diversity or people skills, she can do it because she
believes that a sense of
humor plays an important role

Questions about Jeanne's speeches...& Answers!
What speeches are available? This is a little
"different" but here it is:
Jeanne Robertson has no "automatic speech." What she has
is a large supply of original material that increases
every year. (She has released six full-length CDs/DVDs
in the last eleven years - each chocked full of stories
uses in her presentations.) First she listens to what you want her to
accomplish in her session. Then she pulls
from her vast
supply of personal stories to put together the right
speech for your occasion. In other words, she knows what
she's doing. In fact, Jeanne turns down as many speeches
as she books because she wants to make
sure that she is
right for every event at which she speaks.
Are you saying that there isn't a list of Jeanne's
speeches? That's what we're saying. It just doesn't work
that way. With Jeanne, there is no speech #1, speech #2,
because she is able to fill so many slots during a
meeting. One meeting planner may ask for a thirty-minute
after-dinner presentation with very little message while
the next one requests an hour keynote with steps to
a sense of humor. Some material is perfect
for an audience of all women at an hospital event, for example,
other stories work better for a mixed group of
computer software users. Some planning
audience participation while others do not.
Jeanne finds out the specifics of the program and plans
what material she will use. Then she keeps records
what material she tells where so that if she returns she
will not repeat stories. It keeps Jeanne on her toes
her speeches fresh.
Let me get this straight. I don't
book a certain speech? No, you book a
speaker - Jeanne Robertson. Her most used speech titles
are listed on the "presentations" page,
but the material
that makes up each program depends on the goal of the
meeting planner or planning committee, the makeup of the
audience, what material she may have used in an earlier
speech for you and the session where you want to use
her, i.e., keynote, concurrent session, meal function,
general session or partner program.
overall topic - humor - remains the same. Her material
changes. If you hear her and want that particular
material for your group, she checks her records and
makes sure to repeat those stories. Every speech is
tailored to the needs of the occasion for a
guaranteed positive impact.
But there are speech titles…
That said, the speech titles and promotional blurbs
most often used are listed elsewhere under
But again let us state that the
material Jeanne selects to use under each of these
titles will change according to
slot - keynote, luncheon, general session, banquet,
partners program, concurrent session, etc.,
of the audience and goals of the meeting planner. In
addition, Jeanne likes to craft a speech title
in with your meeting.
