#1 Rated School Nutrition Association Speaker

                   MGM Reviews

General Session/Keynote Speaker 


Our first, ever, Virtual, AKSNA State Conference, was a 'Smash Hit' because of our

General Session Speaker, MGM. She was worth every penny(83 Participants Virtual Zoom)

*MGM created a hilarious PROMO Video to help us promote our State Conference. 

*MGM attended our entire conference to truly Customize her Finale Presentation just for us.

*Unexpectedly, MGM's greatest added value was that she edited and produced phenomenal

videos of the entire conference for our AKSNA Website.

MGM IS the #1 rated School Nutrition speaker for a reason--she's simply the best! 

~Sue Lampert President Conference Chair

USDA Foods Program Coordinator/ Alaska Department of Education & Early Development


General Session Speaker & Breakout Session

"MGM was the highlight of our Nevada School Nutrition Association conference this year!

She was everything that was promised and more. Her presence and presentations made

those in attendance proud to be working in school food service and excited about what we do!"

~Brittany Mally-NSNA Conference Chair

Director Douglas County School District


General Session Speaker & Breakout Session

"I have been in Food Service for 40 years.  I have been to many conferences.

MGM's General Session and Breakout Session for Nevada SNA State Conference

was the best I have ever heard yet."


We engaged MGM for our New Hamshire State Fall Conference (SNA-NH).

OUR members loved her!

MGM was fun and energetic and knows her audience well.

The evaluations from our conference have a 1 to 5 rating scale. 100% of our attendees ranked MGM at a 5 for her General Session and Breakout. This is the first time that has ever happened in the 25 years I've been involved with state SNA associations. They say, you can't please everyone, but MGM has proved that she can! Since then, I've noticed some of my own employees are using her quotes on bulletin boards and signs in the kitchens.

I'm happy to say we are having MGM back at our next fall conference and we think we'll pack the house!

~Doris Demers, School Food Service Director Oyster River Cooperative School

New Hampshire School Nutrition Association State Conference (SNA-NH)   


"MGM has been a dynamic boost to our California School Nutrition Association chapter membership.  As a supervisory chapter of the CSNA, Mother Lode #45 hosts a wide variety of Industry and Education partners within our membership pool.  From Front Line School Nutrition Professionals to District Nutrition Service Directors, to Sales Managers, to Product Development Teams - it may not take all kinds, but we sure do have all kinds!  MGM delivered her "Leading with Heart: Discover the Leader Within."  During the 3 hour session, Our Attendees were Actively Engaged, Entertained, and Enlightened by MGM's heartfelt shared stories and human relations to our chosen professional field.  As individuals, we may affect small changes - as leaders with heart, we will lead each other to great things!
After the event had concluded, I was contacted by numerous attendees complimenting the event, and specifically the content delivered by MGM.  The highest compliments have been to MGM's personable and approachable method of communicating the BIG PICTURE, and bringing a sense of personal ownership to our purpose: Changing America One Meal At A Time Because It's The Right Thing To Do!"
- April Mackill - President, California School Nutrition Association (CSNA) Nothern Chapter:  Mother Lode #45

"MGM is absolutely the BEST Motivational Speaker on the subject of School nutrition I've ever heard!!!  I especially LOVE how she knew what Child Nutrition employees deal with every day.  MGM really hit thenail on the head at the Mississippi School Nutrition Association Annual Conference and at the School Nutrition Association (SNA) Annual National Conference in Dever, CO.  At both Conferences, MGM was the #1 RATED SPEAKER!  No one can sit through her presentation and not be changed by her energy and passion."

"MGM transformed our audience at the School Nutrition Association of Michigan Area 3 Conference!

~Carolyn Thomas - Child Nutrition Consultant  -Macomb ISD - Michigan School Nutrtion Association Area 3 Workshop

~Tracie Suter -SNS, Assistant Director of Nutrition Service & SNA of IL Board Member - Conference Chair 2015

"MGM---amazing and inspiring presentation to SNA of Wyoming.  MGM's ideas are simple and practical to implement without extra costs!      I used one of MGM's ideas right away our conference and saw positive results from my employees within hours. MGM took the time to understand our School Nutrition barriers and concerns, which made her presentation more meaningful to our staff."

~Shannon Thompson-Emslie, MS, RD, Nutrition Services Program Administrator & SNA of WY Board Member 

School Nutrition Association of WYOMING State Conference (SNA of WY)      

  "I cannot begin to tell you what a great job "MGM" did for our SNAL State Conference.  I would highly recommend "MGM" to any group seeking to motivate and encourage their membership to go to 'the next level!"  Not only is "MGM" a great keynote speaker, she also conducts smaller breakout sessions for your group as well!                            MGM is SUPER-FANTASTIC!"

~Sonjia Kinsey, School Food Service Director & School Nutrition Association of LOUSISIANA  President    

School Nutrition Association State Conference (SNAL)      

“MGM was absolutely fabulous to work with.  She really connected with her audience and it was so special how she personalized her presentation to the group.  She was such a burst of energy which was a great way to kick-start our conference.  Our members loved how she stayed and chatted with them, they felt like she really cared about them.  Everybody walked out of there feeling like a million bucks, thanks to MGM!” 

~Gina Lilley, RD 

Arizona School Nutrition Association State Conference (SNAAZ)

Phoenix Elementary School District #1 -Phoenix, AZ  

MGM has been the Keynote/General Session Speaker for SNAAZ -2002, 2003, 2011, 2013

 "When I heard Maureen G Mulvaney, MGM in Denver at our School Nutrition Association National Annual Convention, she motivated me and made me feel so much better about myself.  I laughed so hard.  I criedEvery emotion ran through my body while I listened to her. MGM motivated me.   When her session was over I ran right up to be put on the list for MGM to come to South Dakota.  I wanted everyone in South Dakota to enjoy her speaking as much as I did. 

MGM is a great inspiration to others.  Many people came up to hug me and thank me for bringing MGM to our South Dakota School Nutrition Association State Conference.  MGM made our conference exciting, fun, and memorable.  I do not think they will ever forget this conference --MGM made it memorable. I Thank MGM so much. She gave such an uplifting message to many that were so quiet.  MGM brought them out of there boxes and made them feel so good like they were the STAR by taking people out of their comfort zone and by remembering and calling them by their names

The very first morning before MGM spoke she came in to say hello.   Before people could sit down, MGM went from table to table to meet and greet everyone and get to know them.  It was very exciting.  MGM made so many people feel so special about themselves and what they do. I know love and happiness was shared by all before MGM was finished speaking.   We had ALL great reviews on her. 

 MGM inspired so many and gave them confidence to go back to work and make it a positive year with a smile on their face. We love our jobs but MGM made it better.   We will never be able to look at children the same way.   We will want to smile at them, call their names, and say nice things to start their day.   We set the limits for a child's day, we are important and can set a child on the right path for the whole day because of how MGM inspired us!"

~Shelly D. Anderson- President Elect & Conference  Chair School Nutrition Association of South Dakota (SNASD)

"MGM's mixture of humor and inspiration kept everyone's attention and was a marvelous addition to our Georgia School Nutrition Association.  Her keynote address 'Recipe for Success with Scoops of LOVE' will definitely be remembered as one of the highlights at our conference.  I would definitely recommend MGM to other groups looking for a humorous, yet inspirational speaker."

~Susan Cheshire, CAE- Executive Director, GSNA   Georgia School Nutrition Association (GSNA)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                MGM has been the Keynote/General Session Speaker for Georgia SNA -2001, 2010, 2013

"Maureen G Mulvaney, aka "MGM!", offered our State South Dakota School Nutrition Association State Conference attendees not one, but two motivating and uplifting presentations. The first, titled "Scoops of Love" was Fun, Engaging, and Enlightening about the power within us "to motivate and inspire the future leaders of tomorrow."

Secondly, the keynote message "My Mama was a Lunch lady" was, to put it simply, INSPIRATIONAL.  To be reminded of the ability we have to help guide and be an influence to others as a positive model of our profession. It was a great way to end our State Conference."

School Nutrition Association IN-SERVICE & Professional Standards Training Reviews:

MGM #1 Rated School Nutrition IN-SERVICE SPEAKER & TRAINER

Hawthorn School District: School Nutrition In-Service

"MGM is WORTH EVERY DOLLAR.  While other departments were falling asleep during their In-Service training, we were dancing, laughing, self-reflecting, re-prioritizing, and gaining a heathy self-awareness of our 'usual' pratices.  MGM has the ability to disarm the toughest individual in the group - affording them the opportunity to evaluate themselves in a safe and funny manner - with the hopes of leading to self-improvement.  MGM definitely gave our audience a gentle dose of self-awareness.  MGM rejuvenated us!

MGM is an energizing, motivating speaker!  This is the second time I have heard her speak, and I plan on hiring MGM again, for a manager’s training.  MGM earns her fee!"

MGM #1 Rated School Nutrition In-Service Speaker

Santa Clara County School Districts

"I had the pleasure of first seeing Maureen G. Mulvaney, “MGM”, speak at a State School Nutrition Association Conference in the late 1980’s.  Since then, I have seen her speak at numerous State and National conferences.  I am always amazed by her unique style and the motivational messages she shares so graciously with her audiences.  She is such a dynamic motivational speaker with a keen ability to hold your attention for hours!  By far, MGM is the best speaker ever to be part of the school nutrition arena because she takes the time to know us and to learn about our jobs.  I truly believe she is a great spokesperson for our noble cause of feeding safe and healthy meals to our kids, “the future leaders of tomorrow”, as she refers to them.  

More recently, five Santa Clara County Schools Districts featured Maureen G. Mulvaney, “MGM”, for their keynote address at an August 2013 back-to-school workshop for Child Nutrition Employees.  Her spontaneous joy and laughter filled the room as she kicked off our event with everyone shaking pom poms and dancing around the auditorium—including our CBO and Superintendent!  MGM delighted the audience with thought provoking stories from her “Superheroes and Hairnets” presentation.  Everyone was on the edge of their seats as her uplifting, motivating remarks captured the attention of the entire audience.  She brought us from laughter to tears to laughter.  MGM left us all feeling better about ourselves, more sensitive to how we treat each other, and with a stronger sense of  importance for what we do in our daily jobs as we begin this new school year.  She was truly a smash hit with our employees who have already been asking if we can invite her back to speak with us again.  MGM is loved and adored by her audiences.  If you are looking for a speaker to lift and inspire your organization, MGM is the one!"

~Clifton F. Toomey, JR  Supervisor of Nutrition Services, Indian River School District-Selbyville, DE


"MGM spoke again at our Back-to-School Nutrition Services Kick-Off on August 22, 2017.  MGM held the audience’s attention and kept them engaged for the better part of three hours.  Many of the attendees have expressed how much they enjoyed MGM’s enthusiasm and excitement for School Nutrition Services."  [PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS 3140 : CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR KIDS]

~Clifton F. Toomey, JR  Supervisor of Nutrition Services, Indian River School District-Selbyville, DE

"...It’s been a few days since MGM was at our San Lorenzo USD Student Nutrition Services In-Service and she is still the “buzz”.   Not only is my staff is  talking about her, but they took the information back to their schools and shared it with their Principals, and they are talking!  I am seeing the Pom poms that she used for the presentation in the cafeteria managers offices and in my delivery trucks (they said that they want to remember her message!!).  She really hit home and made the staff feel as important as we all know that they are.

I would recommend MGM to anyone….at anytime…..It might be something good to have on those days in March when everyone needs alittle lift!!  I welcome her back any time.  It was well worth the wait to get her!!!!!!!!"

~ Sandee Larsen, Director-Student Nutrition Services -San Lorenzo Unified School District-San Lorenzo, CA

After hearing MGM present to the Delaware School Nutrition Association (DSNA) ,

a Food Service Employee related the following story to MGM:

"My director made me come to your session. I was angry and didn't want to be there. As I sat in the audience, I heard you say 'Instead of yelling, at the students, to hurry on down the line, wouldn't it be just as easy to say, 'Come on down the line YOU Little Super Stars.' You told us that we could make a difference with the children. You said we could help raise their self-esteem, which would raise their IQ. I went back to our school to try your new techniques just to prove you wrong. As the students came down the line, I said ,'Good Morning you little Super Stars.' It brings tears to my eyes to tell you what happened. In all my 25 years, I've never heard the cafeteria so quiet. The students were in shock. One little boy, who had never said a word since he began school, looked at me and asked, 'Are you calling me a Super Star?' When I replied, 'YES' he beamed like a Shining Star and said, 'Thanks, that makes me feel good inside.' Such an easy thing for me to do made such a huge difference for that little boy. I couldn't believe it! I will continue to be positive and teach others to do the same. MGM...You changed my life...I will never go back to being negative or behaving so angrily with the children."

"MGM IS a wonderful spokesperson for School Food Service- and she highlights the important role that all “Luscious Lunch Ladies and marvelous meal men” play in the health and ability to learn of all students.

When I have the opportunity to join her at a conference, I love to stand at the back of the auditorium and watch the response of the members- especially the ones hearing her for the first time.

MGM’s positive message is oftentimes the first time these folks get to understand their valuable place in schools- and it truly opens up their minds to how important good nutrition is for all kids."
