Talk. Learn. Laugh. Heal.

“Speakers who talk about what life has taught them never fail to keep the attention of their listeners.”– Dale Carnegie

Book Deanna To Speak

“My eventful, uncommon life has positioned with me uncommon wisdom and insight about mental illness and all the “trappings” that come along with it. From homelessness, trauma, and addiction to Fortune 50 companies and executive level positions, I’ve earned the privilege to speak with inspiring confidence and clarity. I design my message with delicacy, infusing humor and undeniable truths that capture and ignite your audience and your event. With great wit, I’ve informed and entertained law enforcement, university faculty and students, corporate executives, faith leaders, physicians, therapists and social workers, and more. Hundreds of events and thousands of inspired listeners later, I am just as on fire about my important message of fortitude, resiliency and hope as the day I gave my first speech. I will not fail to hold you and your audience’s attention until the end.” – Deanna Robinson
