“A couple of years ago we at CSU Bakersfield had the pleasure of having one of our Alumni Sheryl Brown, come back to campus and speak at our Black History kick-off event “Food For The Soul.” Sheryl was indeed a compliment to our program. She is a confident, energetic speaker with a passion for the topics she presents. Her presentation on “The Seven Responsibilities of the Descendants of the Dream” was outstanding and really spoke to the hearts of the audience. Our group which consisted of students, faculty and staff, including the University’s President and wife enjoyed her sincere, honorable presence and very well prepared presentation. Sheryl has an amazing talent with a beautiful speaking voice that exudes a warm caring and energetic personality. The audience really connected with her and left with the inner knowing that we were not only the descendants of the dream, but we were also destined to accomplish the legacy that Dr. King had set forth. Sheryl is not only a dynamic speaker but a person who truly believes that everyone can make a difference, just like she did by coming back to the university and giving something back.

I’ve been called the human Prozac of wealth management! I literally take the worry and anxiety out of managing your finances.
Hello, I’m Stacy Francis, President of Francis Financial, Inc., an independent, fee-only, financial planning firm that helps individuals just like you achieve financial freedom.
My background in finance began with my education at New York University Center for Finance, Law and Taxation. I successfully completed CFP® education requirements and CFP® certification exam. I graduated CUM LAUDE from Middlebury College with a B.A. in International Economics and French. I was formerly employed as Director of Investment Relations at Robinson, Lerer & Montgomery. I was an investment banking analyst at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette Securities Corp. specializing in financial services.
As a nationally recognized expert in finance, I have appeared on The Today Show, CNBC, Fine Living and am frequently quoted in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Barron’s, CNN, The Daily News, Dow Jones, Money Magazine, MSN, Newsday, and many others.
I am also the Founder of Savvy Ladies®, a 15,000+ strong non-profit organization that empowers women to take control of their finances and achieve a more rich and rewarding life.
I am committed to empowering my clients to discover what’s important to them and in doing so I get to see their dreams come true. One of the most important things I do for you is I do NOT sell products such as insurance, nor do I accept commissions or compensation from any other source. This means you will receive unbiased advice concerning your financial decisions at all times. I’m here to ensure you clearly understand where you are, help you determine where you want to go and then I show you how to get there and I’m here every step of the way.
I speak over 40 times a year to both national and international audiences about important money issues with an emphasis on money smarts for women. One of the most important qualities to my presentation is my message resonates with a diverse audience, young and old, educated and uneducated, all races, money smart and not so money smart.
The second thing is my message is simple and easy to understand. In a poised, energetic and generous style, I use easy to understand language that doesn’t require a degree in Finance to comprehend. I share a wealth of information and I walk the audience through exercises immediately introducing them to tools for taking charge of managing their finances in a knowledgeable and empowered fashion.
The message I deliver is fresh, it’s timely and it’s one that is singled out time and again by the press. I have appeared on The Today Show, CNBC, Fine Living and am frequently quoted in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Barron’s, CNN, The Daily News, Dow Jones, Money Magazine, MSN, Newsday, and many others.
What makes my presentation unique is my holistic approach to wealth management. There is more to a person’s finances than a person’s bank account. I teach my audience to explore their values and to make decisions and to build dreams based on what’s important to them…to their values. Planning financial wealth based on personal values creates lasting rewards rather than mere monetary gain. We cover topics such as goal setting, budgeting, debt, spending, savings, investments, retirement and much, much more.
Finally, I share information and education on the financial tools to use along the way based on my continuing education and professional expertise.

Sue Morem is a nationally renowned author, columnist, media personality, and dynamic speaker specializing in professional development and career success. A prolific communicator, she has written five books, writes a weekly workplace advice column, and has created and been featured in ten training videos, including the revolutionary video podcast series, The Job Seeker.
Her first book, How to Gain the Professional Edge, the only real-life book known to be the inspiration for a sitcom, was spotlighted and seen throughout an entire episode of The Drew Carey Show. Her most recent books, 101 Tips for Graduates and How to Get a Job and Keep It, Second Edition, are written for young adults to help them make a successful transition from school into the professional workplace.
Sue’s unique ability to motivate and empower her audiences both young and old has made her a sought-after speaker and landed her recognition in scores of national media. Named a “Woman to Watch” by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal, Morem is the president of Minneapolis-based Premier Presentation, Inc., a training and consulting firm helping people succeed by finding the professional within.
Year after year, organizations call on Sue to rejuvenate their team and encourage professional growth. Whether she is talking about personal or professional development, her enthusiasm is infectious and her knowledge is expansive. Emphasizing personal responsibility, Sue motivates people to look within, shows them how to present themselves in the best possible manner and points them in the direction of their dreams.
I love what I do and I am passionate about getting my message out. When I started my business over 17 years ago, I knew I wanted to help people become more professional and successful, but I didn’t know how challenging it could be. Professionalism and image are sensitive subjects; no one wants to be told to change his or her image—yet many people miss out on opportunities because of the image they project. I help people see their potential and get out of their own way in order to reach their full potential.
From the evaluations I’ve received, I can tell you three reasons you can rest assured you are hiring the right speaker for your event. I listen to my audiences and those who hire me. Here’s what they are telling me and saying about me:
1. She’s engaging: Sue walks her talk. She’s passionate, enthusiastic, and she connects with her audience.
2. She’s energizing: Sue delivers the message people need to hear. Sue tackles sensitive subjects with aplomb and gets people thinking and talking.
3. She’s empowering. She simplifies the complicated. Audiences are motivated to take action.

Those that can do.
Choose a speaker who’s not a talking head – a seasoned lawyer who’s: successfully argued in the Supreme Court about the meaning of equality; who’s made money investment banking; who’s started a women’s webzine about how women are defining their own success, regularly speaks with women leaders worldwide and whose webzine Girlphyte.com has over a million hits.
Sue has seen the future of women in the marketplace and it is exhilerating.
Get fresh facts and insights about how women are changing the culture of the marketplace and how other women are attaining success as they define it by pursing their authentic lives with passion.
Success is not about ladder climbing. It is personal, circumstantial, nuanced. It is about growth – being in the right environment, developing deep roots, many branches, achieving personal goals and continuous growth.
Why attend a day of talks and walk away with the flush of inspiration that doesn’t translate into action?
Changing behaviour is a process. It begins with meaningful interaction, clear direction, a success toolkit and established benchmarks.
The marketplace is flooded with words. It’s time for action. And fun and humour.

7. Large hand bags are very useful, but there’s nothing like a wicked pair of shoes.
6. Dogs are great, but they’re only a transitional relationship.
5. Black and white is uber cool, but life in Technicolor has the AHA factor.
4. There’s no place like home, but for a sense of accomplishment, get yourself out there.
3. Making connections gets you over the rainbow.

Last event: Review from Swankymoms.com:
“I was at a conference yesterday with a group of very intelligent and accomplished women…Just before the day ended, a woman who started an online magazine called girlphyte.com came up to speak. She’s over 50 and looked about 38 dressed in a hip summer outfit, blond hair and had a rockin’ body. The “It Factor” oozed out of her and if anyone in the room had “It” she did. I immediately perked up and focused all my attention on her. The energy in the room shfited instantly almost as if a new weather system had entered. She had half the time she was supposed to have, announced she was throwing her notes out and off she went like a cannon ball out of a cannon. And man, did she impact me. And it’s because she had “It”. And of course she’s going to be insanely successful in her business venture.” http://swankymoms.blogspot.com/2007_06_01_archive.html
Sue has also been applauded by women leaders who attended the Women’s Executive Network’s Wisdom Training as “transformative”.
University students who’ve attended her courses say that they’ve never had the opportunity to learn about how to be successful in university. That stuff just isn’t shared by profs.
Don’t leave just feeling good – leave going for your personal gusto with the insights, mechanics and support to get energized, focused, and hungry for more.
Sue is for corporations and organizations who not only expect bang for their buck but for measurable response. She’s for women who are hungry to leverage their skills and experience and SHAKE IT UP!
