During her 17-year stint as a syndicated newspaper columnist, Deb DiSandro discovered the problem with conventional wisdom when it comes to succeeding in business and in life. She observed in her own endeavors, and with her clients, how focusing on excellence and avoiding failure, increased the stress and beliefs that blocked innovation and success. Research and science confirmed her theories. The focus on winning at all costs, makes goals and dreams even harder to achieve!

Deb created her own innovative concepts to help people break through these barriers by using creativity, courage, and humor. She found that it not only worked, but using these simple tools helped people to achieve their new-found success with more fun and less stress! Her mission and passion is to share her Slightly Off-On Purpose principals far and wide.

In her humor column, she defied conventional parenting wisdom and helped parents to deal with daily challenges in a more realistic and fun way. This led to her book, Tales of a Slightly Off Supermom: Fighting for Truth, Justice and Clean Underwear.

But she didn’t stop there! As a business speaker presenting for healthcare, education, and women’s events, Deb  DiSandro shared her Slightly Off-On Purpose concepts with clients, readers and audience members across the country and has inspired and empowered thousands and thousands of people to achieve their goals and dreams.

Deb is also the leading expert in the field of Purseology™ and utilizes the power of the purse to entertain and educate women. She created and produced two shows, performed in the Chicago area: In Purse-Suit of Superwoman and PG Parental Guide Suggested. She has been interviewed on many radio and television stations and was a spokesperson for Hillshire Farm.

Her coaching and training programs have helped many individuals achieve authorship, along with other personal and professional goals. Other achievements include:Deb DiSandro speaker booking agent

Deb DiSandro’s Business Keynote Speech Topics

EQ + HQ = Woo Hoo!

Everyone thinks raising Emotional Intelligence is the key to building strong business relationships, but Motivational Humorist, Deb DiSandro, shares why adding humor and laughter is the Woo Hoo that takes you to WOW! She shares tips on how to raise your Humor Quotient in addition to your Emotional Intelligence to diffuse tension, build more cohesive teams, and reduce stress.

Say Yes to the Stress

YES? To STRESS?! That’s what motivational humorist and neuro-geek Deb DiSandro says! She puts the funny in brain science (bet you didn’t know there was funny in brain science!) and explains why stress can actually be beneficial when it’s directed in positive and empowering ways. She shows participants how to identify the different types of stress and how to use it to be more productive, build relationships, and reduce conflict.

Super Support Staff to the Rescue

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s your own Super Heroes! Motivational humorist, Deb DiSandro wants to uplift your Support Staff and help them to see the vital role they play in a successful, high-functioning organization. She identifies them as Super Heroes in disguise and shares tips on how they can stay calm and collected in a chaotic world – most of the time.

Stop The Boring! Tell a Story

Storytelling is all the rage right now for sales people because when you tell me your credentials, and why I should buy from you, you make me want to YAWN! You are “boring yourself” right out of the sale or the connection you want to make when all you do is stick to the facts. You know you should tell a story. But how? That’s where humor instructor, 17-year humor columnist and author Deb DiSandro comes in! She’ll teach you storytelling skills that work to build relationships and close the sale.

There’s No Crying in Customer Service

Using baseball inspiration, personal stories, and science-based research on performing under pressure, Deb shows participants how they can manage emotions under pressure. And most of all have fun doing it! Deb delivers a memorable message designed to increase courage and connection when it comes to dealing with the demands of customer service. She will also interview members of your staff and highlight them as the All Stars of your team!

When one of the defining moments of your young life is the day you make a bunch of neighborhood kids laugh-out-loud, just because you say something silly and make a goofy face, you’re bound to fall in love with humor and laughter. And from the age of 5, that’s just what happened for me.

In speech class, I was the kid who wore a bathrobe and curlers to create a character who quickly had the whole room laughing. My heroines were Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball. And I imagined comedic TV acting was in my future.

That’s not what happened – yet.

I made my way into television behind the camera, writing promotional TV commercials for a CBS affiliate in Champaign, Illinois.

It wasn’t until I became a mom that my courage and creativity flourished. Raising three children with a husband who is the yin to your yang will do that to you! My miserations about mommy-hood lead me to writing a weekly humor column called Slightly Off, which I penned in the Chicagoland Daily Herald and other papers for 17 years and created a character called, Slightly Off Supermom who wore pink pig slippers and carried a big purse! She graces the cover of my book, Tales of a Slightly Off Supermom: Fighting for Truth, Justice and Clean Underwear!

And once again I heard the sound that was music to my ears – laughter.

It wasn’t long before I brought my humor messages to life on the stage and found that place where courage and creativity meet humor and laughter. Now my life-long goal is to inspire and motivate others to find this happy place too! It’s here that we can achieve success with more fun and less stress.

I want everyone to experience the joy of living Slightly Off-On Purpose too!
