"Ellen’s story resonates with all audiences. She shares moments in her life when she was at her lowest and didn’t give up. She paints a vivid story of how she evolved from a fitness instructor to the co-founder of the largest franchise in the United States. She incorporates her childhood and the life lessons she learned through her coach father and as a single parent. Her experiences draw you in as she informs and educates you about the science of exercise, the necessity of hope and the benefit of taking risks. Ellen’s speech was a big hit with the attendees of our S.H.E. Summit. We were moved and inspired by her authenticity and inspirational message and we would encourage any event planner looking for a great speaker to book Ellen Latham." - Planners of S.H.E.
