The only STUFF You Need to Live a Purposeful Life


Virtual and in-person delivery


you lived out of a backpack for a few years, what would you take with you? What would you really need?



You want a keynote to kick off your conference that will set the audience on the path to being open to learning, connecting, and celebrating — this is the talk for you! Suzanne F. Stevens will take the audience on a journey where after she sold all her stuff – home, furniture, car, even her prized knives. She, along with her husband, backpacked for two years through developing countries. With a video camera, computer, one suite and a pair of high-heels, they interviewed pioneering women in politics, education, activists, and social entrepreneurs for a web tv program she founded.


Through story, Suzanne shares  the inspiration she received in the most unexpected places, not in the interviews (that is in another talk), but the stuff that happened between the profound discussions. We know the saying: it is the journey, not the destination. Through Suzanne and her husband’s adventures, they stumbled on the stuff that really matters in life.


Suzanne shares the STUFF to live your most purposeful life setting your audience up to apply the concepts throughout the event.
