What I Like to talk About

Elaine Simpson is a passionate National Speaker, Consultant, & Trainer with offices in Detroit, Michigan and Phoenix, Arizona. Her passion for speaking and helping others began early on and it has stayed with her ever since. As an identical twin within a set of triplets born on Christmas day, Elaine has always strived to stand out from the pack and goes above and beyond to create workshops, trainings, and keynote presentations that are unique, energizing and equally as engaging.   Sharing her positive and not so positive stories about being a triplet and her 30+ years in property management and hotel management, Elaine uses her experiences, struggles, successes and stories, the good, bad and the ugly, to connect and relate to anyone who has customers and/or employees. With humor and interactive exercises, Elaine grabs the audience and takes them for a ride that they will enjoy, remember and learn from.
