VICKI’S BIO

Motivational Speaker Zig Ziglar Leans Forward to Address Huge Crowd
Vicki Had the Good Fortune of Learning to Inspire from Legendary Motivator Zig Ziglar

Vicki delights audiences.  Her techniques come from her long career as a highly regarded motivational keynote speaker and broadcast journalist. She was the first woman and youngest person to hold the title of Dallas Bureau Chief at KTVT in Dallas.  At the time, KTVT was the largest, independent TV station in the nation.  Vicki anchored the news for the NBC affiliate (KRIS) in Corpus Christi, Texas where she won the prestigious National Headliner Award from the Press Club in Atlantic City.  Then, she co-hosted the popular, Dallas Cowboy’s weekly TV show, Special Edition, back in Dallas before becoming a successful publicist.  In that role, her clients included BeautiControl Cosmetics and the world’s top motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar.  Impressed with her creativity, Ziglar invited Vicki to be one of the few speakers he would personally mentor.

As a motivational speaker, Vicki honed her platform skills using a conversational style to reach audiences with stories and humor – never Power Point.

She speaks across the world to associations, companies and universities who want a proven, strong message about teamwork in the workplace and excellent customer service. She’s been interviewed by publications ranging from Entrepreneur magazine to the Chicago Tribune to the Dallas Morning News.  She’s also been a guest on radio and TV programs internationally including a segment on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) where frustrated hosts called for motivational advice to encourage the team Manchester United.  (After the call, the famed soccer team won!) Vicki holds a Certified Speaking Professional designation – an earned title given to less than 10 per cent of speakers internationally and only a few hundred women.

She’s authored two books. The first book, Attitude is Everything – 10 Steps to Staying Positive, sold out the first day it was on the market.  Now in multiple printings, it’s sold worldwide.  Her second book, Stuck on Stop – How to Quit Procrastinating, also boasts strong sales.  She autographs copies for groups.   Ask about a bulk discount.
