Vicki Hitzges began her career as a Dallas TV news anchor. After interviewing all sorts of people, Vicki learned to talk to anyone about almost anything. She had a fabulous career working at NBC, FOX, CBS and ABC affiliates and even won a Headliner Award from the National Press Club for “outstanding” reporting.
From television, Vicki headed into public relations. One of her PR clients was America’s top motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar. Happily, he considered her creative. As a result, Zig Ziglar hand-picked Vicki to be one of the few speakers he would personally mentor.
Vicki has spoken from New England to New Zealand. In her third year, Vicki was invited by the California Business Leadership Summit as their first female speaker. The following year she was invited back to meet their second female speaker, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
In 2004, Vicki earned the Certified Speaking Professional designation (CSP.) Less than 7% of speakers worldwide who belong to the International Federation for Professional Speakers hold that designation.
