Liz Uram is a keynote speaker who delivers outcome driven presentations focused on turning great ideas and good intentions into real results.
At almost 30 years old with few skills and no college degree, Liz Uram found herself needing a job. Not sure where to begin, she called a staffing agency. They placed her at a financial services company in downtown Minneapolis. She didn’t know what an investment or brokerage account was but thought working downtown was pretty cool.
She had no idea this temp job would turn into a 13-year career she would leave as a Director of Operations. During that time she led teams in operations, customer service, and sales. She had exciting opportunities to manage projects to improve performance and increase revenue, including turning a cost center into a profit center that generated over $10mm in annual revenue.
She started her own company in 2010 to help other people turn their great ideas and good intentions into real results. As a keynote speaker and trainer, she shares ideas that help people achieve their personal and professional goals. Her mission is to leave each audience with specific action items they can apply in the real world. She speaks at over 100 events a year to audiences ranging from Fortune 500 companies to non-profits. She is the highest rated contract speaker in her topics for the top seminar company in the United States.
She has written 6 books including an Amazon.com best-seller. In 2010, she returned to school and earned a degree in Organizational Leadership from Bethel University. She is the proud Mom to two productive, hard-working millennials who are on their way as leaders in their field. She lives in East Bethel, MN with her husband where they spend their time golfing and working in their garden.
