Smartypants Happiness also provides speaking services for your group or organization on a variety of topics, all designed to reduce stress and foster collaboration and team spirit. 

Margaret Lorenz is a professional speaker who uses her highly 

contagious enthusiasm and entertaining conversational style to inspire her audiences.

Margaret's love of speaking began back in college when she was chosen as the

Commencement Speaker at the University of California, Santa Barbara, College of Engineering graduation ceremony. That commencement speech, entitled, “Discovering Your Own Values,” was created from Margaret's deeply-rooted passion for inspiring others to look within themselves to create the life they want.

Later, the speaking bug bit again when Margaret auditioned to be a motivational speaker for Making It Count programs. Chosen as one of 50 speakers out of 5,000 people who auditioned (top 1%), Margaret went on to deliver inspirational keynote presentations to thousands of high school students throughout California, motivating them to “Prepare for Success.”
