Jeanne Robertson – ALL NEW SHOW!


Jeanne Robertson is a funny speaker, and she utilizes her positively funny style to communicate her message: that a sense of humor is an attitude; an approach toward working with people. She believes that this attitude can be developed and improved, and she suggests ways to do so. Using original hilarious stories from everyday life, she will show us how to laugh at ourselves and accept the things that cannot be changed about us and the people around us. Six-foot-two Jeanne is a former teacher and is the recipient of every top honor in the speaking profession. You’ll learn why audiences across the nation say, “The meeting ain’t over ‘til the tall lady speaks.”

Jeanne Robertson is from Burlington, NC. and was named Miss North Carolina in 1963, and competed in the Miss America Pageant where she was named Miss Congeniality. A graduate of Auburn University, Jeanne taught physical education and coached basketball for nine years before going into professional speaking on a full-time basis in 1976.

Jeanne served as President of the National Speakers Association and is a recipient of that organization's most prestigious honor, "The Cavett Award," given for long-term contributions to the speaking profession. She was the first woman to receive this honor. She also has been honored with Toastmasters International's "Golden Gavel Award," presented annually to one individual for achievement in communications and leadership.

While Jeanne is a humorous speaker, she takes quite seriously the business of being a professional speaker. The Southeastern Conference recognized her business skills when it named Jeanne Auburn University's Woman Entrepreneur of the Year 2000.

The North Carolina Press Association named Jeanne the North Carolinian of the Year 2001. And the National Speakers Association honored Jeanne with its 2010 Master of Influence Award.

Jeanne has produced seven DVD and CD humor programs and can be heard daily on Sirius XM satellite radio's family comedy channels. This lets millions nationwide know she speaks two languages fluently: English… and Southern.

"There’s just something striking about Jeanne Robertson. Maybe it’s her beauty… Or maybe it’s that she’s six-feet-two inches tall… Regardless of what it is, once you hear her speak, you’ll remember her that is, if you can quit laughing long enough to catch your breath…" – Southern Lady Magazine
