Speaking Engagements

Theresa Shank Grentz as a Speaker

This widely-acclaimed national and international motivational speaker addresses her audience from a wealth of experience ranging from her days as captain of the history-making Mighty Macs of Immaculata University (Pennsylvania), her 33 years as a coach of women’s collegiate basketball, coach of the U.S. 1992 Olympic team, various leadership positions in the corporate and financial world, the duties of a wife and mother, and the demands put upon a human been who has faced the challenges all of us meet daily.

Theresa captivates audiences from kindergarten to Fortune 500 companies, showing how her own life story and the playing and coaching of a “Child’s Game” enabled her to find solutions to some of life’s most vexing problems. She has a message for all of us, and she delivers that message in a language that touches the heart as well as the head. Hers is the voice of an exceptionally gifted woman who has “been there, done that.”

Theresa is a teacher, but not a preacher. She is inspiring, but never tiring. She’ll make you soar, she’ll never bore! And in a wink, she’ll make you think!

This speaker is creative, dynamic, compassionate, and sincere communicator who often has her audiences laughing while crying, and grinning while sighing! Her goal is to impart to others the peace and joy that permeate her own life. The methods she shares with us are simple and within easy reach of all.

Give yourself the opportunity to benefit from the gifts Theresa Grentz offers you. Accepting the option of listening to what she has to say may be one of the best decisions you have ever made. And it may very well change the way you look at life and living!
