Vicki Hitzges

Teambuilding Motivational Speaker, Author & Former Television Host


Vicki Hitzges had a dream first job working in the Dallas Cowboy’s front office. That job led to a career in television in Dallas where she had the privilege of meeting U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, both George Bush and George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton. She attributes her ability to talk to audiences today because she had to think fast and speak to everyone from political figures to business moguls to movie star to fashion designers to authors to athletes.  Read More >

Later, as a publicist, she worked to get clients featured in stories on television, in magazine and newspaper articles and on radio programs. One of her clients, motivational guru, Zig Ziglar, thought highly of Hitzges’ creativity. He urged her to speak and decided to personally mentor her. Within three months, she’d spoken around the world.

Due to that rich background, Hitzges tells stories, uses humor, gives practical content and involves her audience. In 2004, she earned the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation. CSP is the highest earned designation awarded by the National Speakers Association to recognize proven expertise and experience. Fewer than 7% of speakers worldwide have earned this title.

Hitzges’ first book, Attitude Is Everything—Ten Steps to Staying Positive, sold out the day it was released. Her second book, Stuck on Stop—How to Overcome Procrastination, is expected to top the first book’s sales.

She’s spoken across the U.S. and as far away as Qatar, New Zealand, Panama and Thailand. Her powerhouse clients include Microsoft, Allstate, Cisco, Southwest Airlines, Delta Airlines, New York Life, Chase Bank, Deloitte & Touche and the CIA. Audiences have laughed, learned and cheered as Hitzges’ taught them to think creatively, act positively, connect with others and conquer change. If you’re looking for a fun, exuberant presenter, Vicki Hitzges will be the HIT of your next meeting! Read Less ^
