Speaker, Author, Coach…
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 girl on the set with a clipboard and while she didn’t know what this girl did, she knew one day she would do it too.

After a 35-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.

Today, Sally Lou serves her clients and engages audiences with inspirational presentations that connect with truth, talent and a life’s work. Her speaking engagements focus on connecting audiences with their greatest talents and designing professional and personal experiences that embrace that innate joy.

Sally Lou is no stranger to a microphone. She hosts her Unexpected Speaker workshops for heart-centered professionals; and she is also available to serve as emcee for heart-centered events. Sally Lou brings her producer talent and heart to the room and promises to make every moment memorable.

Her name speaks for itself. Be inspired by her passion, her stories, her humor and her truth.




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?


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 Sally Lou’s Oprah Show warm-up, 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.

the LOVESPEAKS series podcast

This heart centered podcast helps listeners tune into their talents, find their voice and do what they love. From kindness to composting and everything in between, the lovespeaks series podcast, like SPEAK, is here to help you speak your story, speak up and speak on stages.

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.”
