Speech Topics


Never Had A Bad Day In My Life

When audiences know that the person speaking to them has been through the toughest of times, both personally and professionally, the speaker can convince the audience that they never really had a "bad" day in their lives. Such realizations help to inspire and motivate those people onward in taking their own life to a more rewarding and satisfying level. Sometimes we get careless and forget the incredible possibilities that wait for us to seek them out. In such cases, Ann is able to help each individual listener focus more on the positive, attainable goals and less on the things that matter least.

The Winner In You

When Ann delivers this motivational lecture and states that "There Is A Winner in every one of you", audiences at once can see that she truly believes it. Ann has never met a person in whom she could not find potential. While you will laugh heartily at Ann's comical perspective of those she found more challenging to find "potential" in, the end result will be an audience motivated to identify and develop their own "Winner" from within to the utmost. Belief ignites belief and consumes those in its path with inspiration to rise to the occasion. Gently, humorously, sometimes poignantly, she draws the willing audience out of themselves and into her experiences, rekindling the fire, sometimes forgotten, of their own "belief" in themselves. For example, to a group of new car dealers who were having a bad year, "Ladies and gentlemen, let's put matters in perspective here. The problem? You're having a tough time selling a fine automobile that is everything a new car buyer could want. I can relate. My problem? I was an actress fighting for my life against breast cancer and how could I get the TV networks to continue buying shows from me after I lost both my breasts to cancer? Talk about losing your edge! Over kill I'd say! But seriously, I could still act, still deliver a performance, so I polished myself up as best as I could, and confident that I could still deliver the "goods," I walked into the network meetings and showed them I believed I was every bit as good as I was before. It became clear to me; I believed, so they believed. And Brandon Tartikoff, then president of NBC, must have believed a whole lot because he ordered a TV series, and three TV movies of the week from me! You must still believe in your product and in yourself if you ever expect others to. I'm such an admirer of those great old songs that told us to ...(she sings a few bars here) "pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and start all over again!", and when she sings from her song "The Winner In You", that ended her acclaimed "The Ann Jillian Story" movie, audiences go home with a renewed confidence in themselves and their own unique potential.

Surviving & Thriving

"Let's face it, the one thing we all have in common is the struggle to survive! Finding the recipe to thrive as well as survive in today's world, is not an easy task for anyone. Sometimes "reinvention" of yourself, your product, may be required. The old fashioned approach of making lemonade from those "lemons" life seems to like to roll our way." Watching and listening to Ann Jillian as she winds her way through her own numerous reinvention's, as we find out what worked and what didn't work in her business & personal life, is a formidable lesson that audiences have applied in their own lives with great success. The focus here is on what's really important to sustain not just 'surival', but a rewarding and fulfilled life. It's forward to basics and more. She will tell you the contents of her father-in-law "little gray travel case", that is key to a life of excellence!
