Enlisting Susie to emcee your upcoming event deliver her hilarious “Get off the Bench” keynote address, will have participants talking about your event quite some time. Her ability to crack a joke, relate a quick anecdote and infuse her sports anchor/wife/mom life into a live microphone will keep your event goers giggling and engaged. Susie has vast experience with banquets, galas, races and more. She will keep your event hopping!
Having spent time on the bench (but never sidelined) while working in a male-dominated sports world, Susie has utilized five values she is convinced helped her become an award winning sports anchor and reporter for 9News. These same values can help employees, managers and business owners find their own success.
Susie’s appeal is universal. All audiences will appreciate the story lines she weaves into her strategies for success and happiness. These include personal stories ranging from a general manager telling her she didn’t have what it took to be a disc jockey, to humorous experiences with pro athletes in the locker room (yes they wear towels).
Honorarium varies based on duties (emcee or keynote), time of day and travel. Susie is well versed in live auctions and is happy to run and/or assist with that portion of your event. References available upon request. Please e-mail Susie for more information: email@example.com

“Dear Susie - I am writing to express my appreciation for participating in Rocky Mountain Human Services’ Twentieth Anniversary Gala last Friday at the Ritz-Carlton. You are not only a very talented Sports Anchor/Reporter, you are a marvelous Master of Ceremonies. Your engaging personality and sense of humor was so well received by our supporters and guests. In fact, the additional contributions for the Military Traumatic Brain Injury Program and the Children’s Early Intervention Program that was received at the end of the evening was a direct result of your down to earth message to the more than 450 attendees. You set the tone for the evening and the gala was a success.” ~ Stephen Block (10/12) CEO RMHS
