Lee Ann Szelog
Training and Development –

A professional speaker and award-winning author, Lee Ann Szelog had her first serendipity at the age of 7, although she didn’t realize it at the time. She was extremely shy and decided she wanted to overcome her fear of communicating.
Since then she challenged herself every day to speak up, write and conduct presentations and overcome her fears. Her persistence paid off; after enjoying a successful 28-year career as a marketing and training executive, Lee founded Simply Put, LLC, specializing in presentations to help people communicate more effectively and live life rather than react to it.

She works with companies and organizations of all sizes, focusing on developing and engaging employees to achieve their maximum capacity, personally and professionally. Striving to achieve her maximum capacity, Lee also works with her husband, Tom using their words and his professional photographs to inspire people. From living in a lighthouse on the Maine coast to a log cabin in the Maine woods they have documented life, human and wild, in two quintessential Maine homes.

The result is the publication of two award-winning books by Down East Books titled, Our Point of View-Fourteen Years at a Maine Lighthouse, featuring Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, and By a Maine River – A Year of Looking Closely, which explores the natural beauty found in their own backyard in Whitefield. Their current and most ambitious project is the Maine Woods National Park Photo-Documentation Project, which inspires and educates people to support the creation of the proposed Maine Woods National Park.
