Nicknamed "The Lion Tamer" for improving relationships at work and home, Connie adds value, fun and excitement to your meeting. Her programs draw upon her experience as a nurse, author, coach, speaker, volunteer, sales star, fundraiser, mentor, standup comic, stage actor, daughter, sister, aunt, wife and recovering Superwoman. Connie connects with her audience by spinning humorous, instructive tales plus being natural and real on stage - they appreciate her highly involved presentation that strikes them where they live.

She’ll link experiences such as her flying the Goodyear blimp, training her horse to be an equine therapist and an emergency resuscitation to lessons and skills everyone can use. If you need a speaker who’s part college professor, part philosopher and part comedienne, Connie Merritt’s just the ticket.
Three reasons why you should consider Connie for your next meeting:
  1. Your stress will be lower all during meeting planning and implementation—Connie has addressed more than 600 groups in the last two decades and knows about your deadlines, constraints and concerns.
  2. Your attendees will feel heard, understood and connected—Connie’s active experience and credentials in healthcare plus her community involvement makes her “one of them.”
  3. Your meeting will be taken to a higher, more meaningful level—Connie’s thorough preprogram research, audience interviews and natural humor give over-committed professionals not only skills to improve relationships but a renewed sense of purpose.
