Upcoming & Recent Engagements

“Influencing Change” | PNC event

Susan Packard is the speaker you always look for, but rarely find. She is articulate, dynamic and powerful, yet incredibly down-to-earth and approachable … Our audience was so impressed by her presentation that we invited her back to return as our keynote speaker at our Annual Symposium, and once again she received rave reviews. Susan delivers a message that is stimulating, inspiring and practical, with numerous “takeaways” that the audience can use to improve their effectiveness as leaders in their own organizations. I wish I could find more “Susan Packards” for every symposium.

She was excellent! She got your attention and kept it. Now it is just up to us to use her examples and place them in our business and make them work. Thanks for securing her as a speaker!

Commencement Speech at Michigan State University – December 2019

Susan Packard was terrific!! Many of the guests thought she was the best speaker we had ever had ( and we have been hosting this luncheon for 33 years). She reached out and met so many people easily and was truly a delight to host in our market.
