TURN YOUR CHALLENGES INTO OPPORTUNITIES! Alzheimer's Disease runs in Sharon Lacey's family and she feared she was next. So she quit her job as a national award-winning teacher to pursue her lifelong dream to be a stand up comedian -- and now her life is one big adventure! This speaker is ideal for corporate conferences where audiences have had their fill of boring Power Point presentations, and need some laughter, motivation, and inspiration.
Sharon as she regales audiences with true tales from her life as a road comic. It's a journey of a lifetime, performing in comedy clubs and military bases all across America and overseas, and for Ugandan audiences in two of their tribal languages. She even goes on an epic trek in search of wild mountain gorillas!
Audiences come away feeling motivated and inspired to face their fear and follow their own dreams, too!

Our retreat goals are for personal and professional growth, and rejuvenation. Our 2014 theme “Celebrate, Challenge and Champion,”Sharon helped us do all of these with her motivational humor and contribution. We were curious and engaged with her tools and personal story, every person who had the joy of being a part of this day gives Sharon attribution for it's overall success.
