A little about Dr. Ronda Beaman
Highly decorated Girl Scout and Patrol Leader, cheerleader, student council officer, honor roll, dean’s list and aerobics champion Ronda Beaman has kept up her badge habits!
The first recipient of the NEA’s Art of Teaching award, Dr. Ronda is the mother of USA Today’s Most Creative Family, highest rated speaker at the Young President’s Organization, author of the award winning book, “You’re Only Young Twice,” director of Leadership Studies at California Polytechnic University, and a highly sought after speaker, life coach and fitness trainer. She is Chief Creative Officer for the research and consulting firm PEAK Learning, Inc. and a national thought leader for The American Health Network. She has been featured on major media including USA Today, CBS, NBC and Fox and was anchor for the television magazine Seattle Today.
Dr. Ronda earned her doctorate in leadership, paying her way by singing telegrams dressed in a gorilla suit. She has been Professor of the Year at three universities and named one of the Top Ten Outstanding Women in America.
Some days, she is very, very tired. Most days she wakes up and shouts “I’m back!”
Ronda is available to speak at troop meetings, book clubs and readings, writing seminars, business meeting and conferences, and anywhere people gather to find humor, insights and answers to life’s most basic question, “When do I get my prize?”
