PRAISE from HAPPY CLIENTS:
“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!

I’d book her again in a heartbeat.” –Mikey Hoeven, First Lady of North Dakota (former), Mikey Hoeven’s Women’s Health Summit

LAUGH YOUR WAY TO GRACE
Laughter is one of the most powerful, yet under-appreciated tools we have in this life. It can reduce stress, improve health, defuse conflict, empower creative thinking, build bridges, awaken our spiritual connections, and inspire hope. I’ve learned this firsthand as a minister, a comedian, and a cancer survivor. This popular keynote is for anyone who wants to lighten their perspective, focus their energies and tap the power of their innate sense of joy.
Clients range from the American Heart Association and Vidant Cancer Care to the Chautauqua Institution and numerous national religious gatherings.
THE ROAD NEVER TRAVELED
After a complete career U-turn from lawyer to minister and comedian, including a two year trip around the world, I learned a thing or two about risk and reinvention. Specifically targeted at those facing life transitions, The Road Never Traveled uses my story to offer entertaining, yet concrete tools that will help you take risks, face your fears and find your own path of self-discovery.

Join me, Rabbi Bob Alper and Muslim Comic Gibran Saleem for a fun-filled evening of interfaith comedy that highlights our commonalities. You will think, laugh and leave with a little different view of the world. Clients include the World Bank, the Clinton Presidential Center and Habitat for Humanity.
“… Your voices offer powerful lessons of reconciliation and understanding through the language of laughter and joy. I can’t think of a more timely message for our world.” -Juliana Oyegun, Chief Diversity Officer, The World Bank Group
Offered as either an hour-long presentation, half-day or full-day workshop, this presentation is an entertaining, yet substantive look at how lessons from standup comedy can transform preaching, pastoral care and self-care. It can also be tailored for corporate and legal groups on leveraging the power of standup comedy to power-up presentations!
