Entertaining Leadership Speaker: Moving People and Businesses Forward

A born entertainer, DeDe captivates her audiences with a combination of rich content and a profound message, encouraging people to “snap out of it!” DeDe spent 25 years in corporate America, 24 years as a blackout drinker. In 2007 she left alcohol behind, and returned to her true passion of combining powerful storytelling, entertainment and education into what she calls “keynote entertainment.” Coupled with singing, and a little acting and dancing thrown in, DeDe’s core message brings awareness to the ways we limit ourselves, and how we can draw on our inner strength to realize our dreams and discover what is possible.

DeDe, the niece of legendary New York Yankees baseball player Bobby Murcer, was a corporate executive for companies like Toyota Material Handling Corp., State National Insurance Company and Auto Financial Group. She’s the bestselling author of Wisdom, Wedgies and Life’s Little Zingers, and has performed in front of millions of people. She’s also a recording artist, actor and radio personality. In 2014, meeting professionals, through Meetings & Conventions magazine, named DeDe as one of their top favorite speakers.

THE FAMILY

When people hear DeDe’s full name, DeDe Murcer Moffett, some invariably ask, “Murcer? As in Bobby Murcer? It’s true.

Her talk, “Big League Courage Do Something Amazing” teaches about the individual and team practice of making right choices and taking risk so organizations can accomplish the kinds of initiatives that make them stand out in today’s competitive global environment.

DeDe, who “Meetings & Conventions” magazine named to its meeting professionals “Favorite Speakers List” draws upon the latest cognitive and behavioral research, her 25 years in corporate sales, plus the tough lessons learned on and off the field from her uncle, five-time major league baseball All-Star and New York Yankee, Bobby Murcer.

Living a Big Life Takes Big Balls

How to Step Up and Move Forward Now

Career experts point out that your beliefs really do influence outcomes. Unless you first believe you can and will find the job or career you want, you’ll end up defeating yourself.
