It’s no secret that laughter heals. But many of us have missed that memo. While life may try and beat it out of us, it’s never too late to reclaim our joy! Join the tens of thousands of people I have helped to overcome adversity, embrace change, reduce stress, build relationships and inspire hope by harnessing the power of humor.
“WOW!!! Susan was incredible! This was the first time (in 16 years) that we had a STANDING OVATION after the speaker. Susan was extremely easy to work with, giving her time for interviews and doing all those things that help our cause in our community. Susan – You were everything this event/cause needed and more. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
–Jennifer Lambert, Development Officer, High Point Regional Health Foundation, NC
“We have heard nothing but great remarks on Susan’s presentation. We include a survey at the end of our program, many wrote ‘Best Speaker ever for Pink Picnic.’ Susan did an awesome job! Thanks so much for working with us on this special event for Central Georgia area!”
–Beth Jones, Director of Community Education and Services, Community Health Works, Macon, GA
“Susan hit it out of the ballpark. I’ve had more comments about Susan than any other speaker I’ve had in all of the Expo’s I’ve done, and that’s quite a few! She was uplifting, very funny, well-rounded, inspirational–the whole package. I’d book her again in a heartbeat.”
–Mikey Hoeven, former First Lady of North Dakota, Mikey Hoeven’s Women’s Health Summit, Bismarck, ND

Laughter is one of the most powerful, yet under-appreciated tools we have in this life. It can reduce stress, improve health, build relationships, foster forgiveness, awaken our spiritual connections and inspire hope.
As a minister, comedian and cancer survivor, I’ve learned this firsthand. This keynote is for anyone who wants to lighten their perspective, focus their energies and tap the power of their innate sense of joy.
