Speaker: *Susan Brooks – author, entrepreneur, and columnist
Susan Brooks is an international speaker, award-winning entrepreneur, published columnist, and author. Marketplace service issues and leadership challenges are her forte. Susan’s most recent book ‘Outrageous, Courageous, and Highly Contagious…’ is a leadership storybook, a provocative fun-read for people ready to ignite Life in themselves and others. In this collection of profound stories that will inspire your own, everyday people serve causes bigger than themselves, genuine to their own truth and full-out self-expression. Each is a risk-taker living on the edge of awe. It is their Service Enthusiasm that is celebrated in this book!
Susan sees herself as their Messenger, humbled by the privilege to share their powerful and significant stories with you, stories that will inspire you to step up your own life. After all, Life is all about the choices we make, so why wait to be happy? At the risk of her own vulnerability, Susan also includes her own story at the end of every section in this book. Known as a ‘cultural provocateur,’ Susan lives out on those skinny branches, taking risks, asking the right questions, and refusing to settle for less. Susan attracts the best in you…she is your champion for change!
Make it an Outrageous, Courageous and Highly Contagious Day!
Serves You Right!
