Leah has brought the Suddenly Frugal message to life via media interviews and paid speaking appearances at colleges, libraries, business associations and other organizations. Here is some of the feedback from those talks:
Leah Ingram is an engaging speaker who obviously loves sharing her ideas on how to enjoy life without spending lots of money. Her enthusiasm is contagious and she has a great sense of humor. Our women's group thoroughly enjoyed her presentation.

Leah Ingram gave an enthusiastic talk that was “spot on” for our Princeton-based audience. Her presentation was professional, informative and fun. Leah was receptive to the large, interactive crowd by answering questions and elaborating on specific areas of interest. And she was easy to work with!

I reached out to Leah as both an author and a professional speaker for Financial Pathways at Bay Path College, a financial literacy workshop series for women. Leah's blog and her "common sense approach to frugal living" set the stage for a very timely topic of "living well within our means." Leah spoke to an group of over 140 women covering a multi-generational audience, ages 18-70+. Her presentation was exactly what I had expected. I would recommend Leah for similar engagements.

Media-trained while an editor at Woman’s Day Special Interest Publications, Leah quickly became the go-to expert for on-air demonstrations of family-related topics, including gift tips, etiquette advice, shopping suggestions, and money-saving ideas.
