ANN JILLIAN

Named one of the most admired women of the world by Good Housekeeping, Ann Jillian is a three-time Emmy nominee & Golden Globe Award winning actress and singer. Since 1985, she has added "motivational speaker" to her impressive list of credits, addressing business, medical, professional and women's groups with her own unique blend of inspiration and humor.  Ann's programs are informative, fun, and always flexible to the clients needs.  As she says herself:  "If audiences are not having fun, then the important message got lost".  Add her pianist and her program remains a major lecture about life, health, and the joys of motherhood, accentuated with song.

Ann is an accomplished performer in all areas of show business. She has starred in motion pictures, television, nightclubs and the Broadway stage. Ann Jillian has been a part of show business for almost all her life.

Her interest in show business was fostered at age six by her Lithuanian-born mother when her family moved from her hometown of Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Los Angeles. After appearances on Art Linkletter's TV shows, she obtained an agent. Ann obtained a scholarship to the Los Angeles Civic Light Opera, which gave her chance to study acting and music with some of the finest teachers in the country.

In 1988 Ann won the 'Best Actress' Golden Globe award for her starring role in the poignant NBC television film 'The Ann Jillian Story' which also received two Emmy nominations for her and the film. Award winning actor Tony Lo Bianco played Ann's husband, Andy. This autobiographical film received great critical acclaim as well as a tremendous viewing audience (35 share, 23.8 rating), making it the highest-rated, #1, two hour film for the 1987-88 season. Most importantly, 'The Ann Jillian Story' brought Ann's positive message about the hopeful side of breast cancer to millions of viewers.

Ann was voted one of the most admired women of the world by Good Housekeeping magazine's 1990 poll. She is a volunteer performer for St. Vincent's Meals On Wheels (feed the elderly program), a lifetime board member of the American Cancer Society, and the St. Jude Children's Hospital. Ann also works for the USO, and the D.A.V. (Disabled American Veterans Hospital visiting program) and many other charities.

  • Never Had A Bad Day In My Life - When audiences know that the person speaking to them has been through the toughest of times, both personally and professionally, the speaker can convince the audience that they never really had a "bad" day in their lives. Such realizations help to inspire and motivate those people onward in taking their own life to a more rewarding and satisfying level. Sometimes we get careless and forget the incredible possibilities that wait for us to seek them out. In such cases, Ann is able to help each individual listener focus more on the positive, attainable goals and less on the things that matter least.

  • The Winner In You - When Ann delivers this motivational lecture and states that "There Is A Winner in every one of you," audiences at once can see that she truly believes it. Ann has never met a person in whom she could not find potential. While you will laugh heartily at Ann's comical perspective of those she found more challenging to find "potential" in, the end result will be an audience motivated to identify and develop their own "Winner" from within to the utmost. Gently, humorously, sometimes poignantly, she draws the willing audience out of themselves and into her experiences, rekindling the fire, sometimes forgotten, of their own "belief" in themselves.

  • Surviving & Thriving - Let's face it, the one thing we all have in common is the struggle to survive! Finding the recipe to thrive as well as survive in today's world, is not an easy task for anyone. Sometimes "reinvention" of yourself, your product, may be required. Watching and listening to Ann Jillian as she winds her way through her own numerous reinventions, as we find out what worked and what didn't work in her business & personal life, is a formidable lesson that audiences have applied in their own lives with great success. The focus here is on what's really important - to sustain not just "survival," but a rewarding and fulfilled life. It's forward to basics and more. She will tell you the contents of her father-in-law "little gray travel case", that is key to a life of excellence!

  • A Conversation With Ann Jillian - This is an informal conversation between Ann and the audience that can deal with all of the above or go off in other directions that the sponsor and the audience really care about. It's friendly, informative, fun and can be intimate in most every way. "Up close and personal..."
