Motivational Speaker

When over 600 secondary teachers ALL praise her for relating to their needs and ask for her back to the school district again, she has to be a very special person... Having worked in education and staff development for over 20 years, I have heard many great speakers. Mamie, however, has to be one of the best, if not THE best motivator I have ever heard... she cannot be equaled!!!

Mamie McCullough is truly one of a kind. As her pastor, it is my privilege to observe the tremendous impac the 'I Can Lady' is having on America. What she does is more than motivational, it is transformational - life-changing!
