An Evening with JEANNE ROBERTSON, CSP, CPAE, and GOLDEN GAVEL recipient

jeanneYou are in for a TREAT! Jeanne Robertson is doing a special event and fund-raiser for NSA Carolina’s this March 17, 2017! What a way to start the NEW Year off right.

Who is Jeanne Robertson? Well, if you have never heard of her you must have been staying in the basement with foil covering the windows. She is truly a phenomenal speaker and is hilarious.

Jeanne delivers funny, original stories that will make you hold your sides with laughter. Watching her is a privilege and you will get to watch what she does so well AND have the opportunity to have a question and answer session with her.

Jeanne’s main topic is humor.  Sometimes she just delivers it.  Other times she uses it to explain how to develop a sense of humor in working with people. What she will specifically do for you, is help you understand the importance of humor and will demonstrate how to make it look seamless.

Jeanne Robertson is a professional speaker who specializes in hilarious humor based on her life experiences. Speaking  to thousands of people annually, she utilizes her positively funny style to illustrate that a sense of humor is much more than a laughing matter. It is a strategy for success.

Jeanne’s success as a humorist has not gone unnoticed by her peers. She has been awarded every top honor in her profession including the top award in professional speaking “The Cavett Award.”  She is also a member of the Speakers Hall of Fame and recipient of Toastmasters International’s Golden Gavel Award. They like her back home too. The NC Press Association named Jeanne its 2001 North Carolinian of the Year. Most recently, the National Speakers Association honored Jeanne with its 2012 Master of Influence Award.

You may have seen this Hall of Fame speaker being interviewed by CBS correspondent Morley Safer on “60 Minutes” . . . or watched one of the eight humor DVDs she has produced in the last 18years . . . or heard her daily on Sirius/XM Radio’s Family Comedy Channels . . . or attended one of the “Just Jeanne” humor shows in theaters across the country . . . or seen her YouTube clips that have had more than 38+ million views.  But only if you’ve seen Jeanne in person at one of the thousands of speeches or theater shows she has given over the past 53 years can you really appreciate why she stands at the top of her profession.

Jeanne Robertson is funny. Oh my, yes. She also knows that her job is far more than being funny. Her message is that a sense of humor is an attitude, an approach toward working with people. She believes that this humor attitude can be developed and improved, and she outlines how to do so while captivating audiences with funny, original stories.

You will not want to miss the opportunity to have an evening with Jeanne Robertson! She is the best at what she does. Come on down. Be in the mix. Absorb what she has to give. Your day, your week and your career will be better for it!
