Suzie Humphreys, CPAE Texas
Photo of Suzie Humphreys

Suzie Humphreys has been fired, been broke, been disappointed, been a petrified expectant mother at 40 years old and lived her life with a passion for learning not only how to be better, but to see things differently.

She lifts, jolts and nurtures her audiences, and they love every minute of it! She makes them laugh until they swear they can't laugh anymore....then she "grabs" them again!

Suzie is one of the most compelling speakers on the platform today, taking her message from corporations to conventions, hospitals to classrooms; she is at home with people of all ages and all walks of life. The reason men and women relate to her is because she tells the truth about her failures, her arguments with her husband, how she wrestles with her hilarious but "painful" relationship with her 95 year old mother and her bout with breast cancer. These stories prove her point that, regardless of what the situation or the problem in the job or the relationship, it is NOT the "problem that's the problem" it is "MY THINKING ABOUT THE PROBLEM THAT'S THE PROBLEM" It is "close to the bone stuff" It is everybody's "stuff!!"

She has criss-crossed the country to over 2,000 groups, every kind imaginable. She has stayed in fancy hotels and "mom and pop" motels. She has spoken to small town Chambers of Commerce and big city founding fathers, and her message of truth and plain spoken values rings in the hearts of all communities who are not just trying to "survive" the times but flourish in them. She believes that you can do anything you want to do and enjoy getting there "heartbreak and all!"

When she leaves the stage there remains the unmistakable warmth of having been touched, and the unshakable affirmation that whether ordinary of extraordinary, through good times or bad, caught in mid-frailty or new accomplishment "Life really is the greatest thing ever!"

As a motivational and inspirational humorist, Suzie Humphreys got one of the longest standing ovations on record from the National Speakers Association when she spoke to 2,500 of her peers at their National Convention in Palm Springs, California. In 2002, Suzie was inducted into The Speaker Hall of Fame at their National Convention in Orlando and was awarded "The Council of Peers Award of Excellence." In 2004, she was inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame and, as Suzie says, "All that for a D minus student! You never know do you?"

Suzie's background is as varied as her audiences. From administrative secretary to Television Talk Show Host, to 20 years in radio, she has hobnobbed with movie stars and politicians, interviewed the great and the "near" great, made hundreds of commercials and has done musical comedy and motion pictures.

All this experience has truly qualified Suzie to stand before any audience...young or old, man or woman...relaxed and excited to be there to share what she has learned from her own personal amazing stories.

  • I Can Do That! - Suzie has a way with laughter, poignant stories and jump-start inspiration, of confirming that fear doesn't have to be the motivating force that stops us from living life to it's fullest. We say we will "one day!" One Day comes and goes and we are left regretting that it was not life that passed us by at all but rather our decision to LIVE IT! This is about saying "yes" instead of "no," about not telling ourselves "we can't," "it's too hard" and "I'll never be able to." This presentation is perfect for corporate, education or anyone who needs a lift up not from outside, but from within.

  • Life is What Happens to You While You're Making Other Plans - Take a roller coaster ride through Suzie's failures at breakneck speed and discover at the end of the ride that those same failures turned out to be the "very best things that ever happened to her." This is her most requested topic and is for anyone who is going through depression, cancer treatments, divorce, job change or demands anything that forces us to grow. Hilarious, moving and unforgettable.

  • We're ALL Walking Around With IT! - In a day and age of new ailments, old regrets, fears of growing old and anticipation of growing up, our mind is turned upside down by fear and regret. In fact, we've become so used to being "unhappy or scared about something" that we consider it normal. Facing those fears is exactly the trick to shrinking them! Rather than trying to escape them what if, instead, we just confronted and accepted them? After all, "before a situation can be transformed it must first be accepted!"

  • Looking for the Laughter! - Finding the humor in the midst of desperation, anger or fear is not an easy task. Sometimes, however, we are able to see it years later in looking back. How wonderful to see it during the "chaos." As always, Suzie's stories are probably yours, just told in a different voice!

  • Please Pick Up After Yourself, Your Mother Doesn't Work Here! - We all have those people in our lives. The ones who are in our face and know how to push our buttons. It does, after all, boil down to relationships! Suzie shares the most significant of hers and frankly and humorously tells how she learned to focus on what is right about others. If you're willing to change your thinking, this is the presentation.

  • Suzie: Where is Your Faith? - This one hits close to home. It centers around her twelve year old son who went to bed happy and well-adjusted and woke up at thirteen possessed! For the next five years, she and her husband couldn't get him to do it the way they wanted him to do it. This is about letting go and learning to quit trying to control everything and everybody in our path. Suzie's strong faith is the constant in her very busy life. She shares how she invites God into everything. He is not just "an occasional" companion when you need Him, but an ever-present source of strength, joy, humor and courage when you're called upon to be more than you ever thought you could be!
