As a professional speaker who helps companies create cultures of encouragement, Vicki Hitzges helps businesses stay positive, embrace change and motivate their workforce.

Vicki began her career as a Dallas TV news anchor (although she says that job was like being shoved into the Hudson without knowing how to swim.)  A shy girl, she mastered the art of talking to anyone after interviewing all sorts of people from Bette Midler to Bill Clinton to Ron Howard to Alan Greenspan.

After television, Vicki launched a public relations business.  One of her clients, motivational guru Zig Ziglar, admired her creativity and selected her as one of the few people he would personally mentor.  Within three months, she’d spoken around the world.

Vicki earned the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional designation (the highest earned designation awarded by the National Speakers Bureau and the International Speaking Federation.) She’s in demand as both a speaker and a two-time, best-selling author.
