Meet Sally Lou Loveman

Sally Lou Loveman has spent a lifetime doing what she loves. As the former audience producer for The Oprah Winfrey Show, Sally Lou lives her purpose by connecting with audiences. At age 14, Sally Lou discovered her passion for television when she was an audience member at The Mike Douglas Show. She spotted a woman on the set with a clipboard and while she didn’t know what this woman did, she knew one day she would do it too.

After a 36-year career in television and having entertained over a half a million people from the Oprah stage, Sally Lou Loveman brings her message to new audiences through her business lovespeaks and her book SPEAK: love your story, your audience is waiting.

Sally Lou engages audiences with inspirational presentations that focus on connecting audiences to their greatest talents, their story and their purpose. She hosts her Unexpected Speaker workshops for heart-centered professionals who want to step up their speaking game or learn to speak without fear.

Sally Lou brings her producer role and heart to every room (or Zoom) and promises to make every moment memorable. Her name speaks for itself. Be inspired by her passion, her stories, her humor, and her truth.

The LOVESPEAKS Method - SPEAKeasy Event

The LOVESPEAKS Method is all about owning your story so you can speak without fear. Our voices are our greatest assets and I’m on a mission to help people get over their fear of public speaking. So I invited a room full of my favorite women (and a few of my favorite men) to speak their stories and inspire others to do the same. We need your voice. We need your story. We need your wisdom. If fear is holding you back, sign up for my course, The LOVESPEAKS Method, and embrace public speaking as your new professional and personal asset.

SPEAK is a love letter to my story and everyone in it.  I believe in letting our love speak by loving our stories.  If we don’t love our stories and speak them, who else will?

– Love, Sally Lou

SPEAK – Love Your Story. Your Audience is Waiting, is a funny and poignant memoir as well as a guide to living life fully. Readers will get practical takeaways to step-up their speaking and storytelling skills as well as build a connection with themselves and others.

Like all Sally Lou’s speaking engagements, SPEAK is participatory. When readers finish the book, they will have a start to their own story and realize their true potential and purpose.

Sally Lou’s personal testimony reminds us that laughter is key to living well and sharing our stories help us grow and heal our hearts.

How would you start your story in 10 words or less?

Before we love our story and speak our story, we should know how to start our story. So here’s my challenge: How would you start your story in 10 words or less? What are the words you would choose to capture who you are and the purpose of your life? It’s a little daunting to have to catalog everything we have ever done in our lives and come up with a snappy sentence that sums us all up. But, if we don’t have a start our story, how will we speak our story? I start mine with “Accept invitations from your mother.”
