Guest Speaker for Schools

Speaking to make a difference!

Susie Arbo has spoken to thousands of children at schools around the Kansas City, MO area. An experienced public speaker, Susie enjoys encouraging kids to help them achieve their life's goals.  Susie began speaking to schools and groups when she was a KC Chiefs Cheerleader and Rider of Warpaint for 13 seasons.  Susie now owns a group private counseling practice and travels extensively for speaking engagements.  

In the area of personal development, Susie covers leadership, life balance, setting and reaching goals, and creating boundaries.

Susie also regularly customizes each of these topics specifically for the event.

Topics include:

  • Keep a Positive Attitude

  • Suicide Prevention

  • Anti-Bullying

  • Self Esteem

  • Goal Setting

  • Stress Management

  • Sensitivity in the Workplace

  • Time Management

  • Motivation

  • Health & Wellness

  • Drug and Alcohol Prevention

Motivational speaking engagements or keynote speeches can be customized to fit any schedule and budget requirements. Price varies per engagement. The average cost is $500 -$1500, depending on time requirements, preparation, and travel. I can offer several options to work within your budget. I have had schools and groups from the same area work together and share the travel and preparation costs for the same presentation, significantly reducing the cost for both schools or groups.
