Speaking Topics

Jeanne doesn't have specific, canned speeches. She pulls from her huge bag of funny, original material to plan just the right speech for each occasion. She also like to create speech titles for different occasions, themes, meeting planners requests, etc. That said, here are a few titles that work well. It's just that there is no pat speech to go with each title.
