Elan means inspirational, vivacious, professional, classic - Elan Speakers Agency represents a portfolio of professional business speakers/presenters/trainers. After a long history in hospitality, both as a meeting planner and Director of Sales with national hotels/resorts/conference centers, I saw a need for the meeting planner to have a partner that works with them to ensure the speaker/trainer they hire is the right fit - for their audience, for their objectives, for their budget. I have worked diligently to ensure after 30 years that I have a reputation for honesty, integrity, and partnership. I have been greatly honored to receive the Mentor of the Year Award as well as Leader of the Year Award from the MPI MN Chapter. Also, a wonderful honor to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the "Best of MN" Event with MN Meetings & Events. I am presently on the Power of 2 Committee for MN MPI which is a mentoring program.
