According to Aunt Lena

Zia Lena’s Guide to Life, Love, and Lasagne

Aunt Lena is the lasagna baking, lipstick smacking, raw wisdom-giving relative we all wish we grew up with. For adult audiences or children and families, Aunt Lena adapts quickly and with wit to any group. Based on the long-running ‘Aunt Lena Sez’, Aunt Lena tells it like it is in a strangely endearing way that will have your group howling in no time.

Through storytelling, music, and her inimitable style, Aunt Lena can cut to the chase on any given topic, and she certainly doesn’t mince words and loves to give advice.

Warning: Audacious Joy is contagious! Anne-Louise and Aunt Lena will make your event a resounding success.

Be a Catalyst of Community and Raport

When the conference or retreat is done for the day, sometimes you need some after-dinner entertainment.

Joy may not be an expense in the books, but without investing in it your organization’s culture becomes unbalanced. We know that without a firm and enduring sense of balance, it can be difficult to achieve goals.

Whether you would like a concert, a program, or an open mic, Anne-Louise’s gifts will help you create a memorable event. Award-winning singer, songwriter, and master storyteller, Sterry gathers your group together to build rapport, rejuvenate morale, and create community.

Fabulous! She was the best emcee of any conference I’ve been to anywhere in the world … and I’ve been to a number.

Funny, and entertaining, kept us on time with grace. Very, very well done – and so professional! Loved it.
