“Susan, you owned the stage, what a great presentation!”


Learning while having fun is the double dip you get when you hire Susan Bratton.

Whether she’s keynoting on the hottest trends in digital marketing, emceeing your awards ceremony, or leading your team in change management techniques, she knows how to work the audience for maximum participation.

Imagine the attendee satisfaction that comes with a speaker who teaches and inspires?


“I have been most impressed with your vast knowledge and especially your personal presentation.  You are certainly a “public speaker extraordinaire”; speaking with brilliance, clarity and warmth.  I loved watching your interviews on YouTube.  How can any human be so articulate and never miss a beat?” : )

Applause erupts into hoots and hollers as epiphanies are struck and new business strategies forms.

If you can, book her for a workshop, because there’s no one better to get your team to step up to new learning and walk away with a solid plan to implement. Select from one of the speaking platforms below or hire her to craft a custom presentation that speaks to the heart of your business needs.


“You definitely are an inspiration. I also thought the session you ran was absolutely fantastic both for content and for seeing how you masterfully captured the audience.”

— Betsy Flanagan, Wells Fargo

I’m registering my vote to have Susan Bratton, Personal Life Media, back next year for a couple of sessions. Susan got interactive with her audience in her session on “Selling Advertising and Sponsorship for Your Audio or Video Content: What You Need To Know Now.” In an hour I think she gave one of the best advertising sales how-to’s I’ve seen. She provided information on the language of the advertising agencies and then walked us through creating a media kit, proposal, contacting the buying rep, making the pitch, following up and servicing the order/client.
