As the daughter of Allen Funt, creator of the Candid Camera television show, Juliet has spent her life observing the hidden truths beneath our social selves. She won't hide a camera in your office but will bring her family tradition of hilarity and warmth to each and every one of your attendees.
Juliet lights up the platform with a true wordsmith's love for the poetry of a well-turned phrase. She then backs up her engaging words and rich stories with thought-provoking content that has made her a nationally recognized expert in coping with the pace and pressure of our busy lives. Her uproarious stories and easily applicable points will energize and enlighten you and your audience. Her show biz genes are amplified by years performing improvisational comedy on the professional stage and many, many hours on the platform challenging her audiences to think deeper, laugh harder, and change their lives more profoundly. She helps businesses, groups and associations from top management to front line employees, find and nurture the human capital that is the fuel behind every organizational success.
Her diverse work history has taken her through a myriad of roles: from Project Manger for a live events company to Human Relations trainer for the Los Angeles Police Department through the Museum of Tolerance, and even to Israel as a liaison in a Palestinian/Israeli peace project.
Juliet began her television career at two years old at the hands of her proud poppa, and since has appeared on national news, television, and radio. She has been featured in the L.A. Times, The Chicago Tribune, Shape, L.A. Parent and Professional Speaker magazine. She has been a weekly columnist for the Womenof.com Internet community, and a co-author of The Communication Path and The Wellness Path, in the Path Training Series. Her programs are great for Associations, Women's Groups, Educators, Financial Professionals, Healthcare, Real Estate, and many other audiences.
She is a member of the National Speakers Association and fills her spare time running a fine art photography business with her fabulous and talented husband Lorne, winner of the 2005 Travel Photographer of the Year. Together they have co-founded the Young Stars Project, a non-profit organization building holistic learning schools for children in Uganda.
