Franne McNeal ’82

Franne McNeal

Franne McNeal is an award-winning serial entrepreneur, keynote speaker, author, faculty member, radio and TV host. Her book, “Significant!” is based on five “step up” principles: get going, embrace opportunity, find support, accept love and be significant. “Significant!” is also available in French and Spanish.

Developing her book inspired Franne to create a podcast “The Significant Business Results Radio Show.” Through SignificantTV, Franne interviewed 100 entrepreneurs.

She earned a master’s in business administration from Eastern University and is pursuing a doctorate in business administration from Temple University.

Franne is an avid walker and gardener. She loves people-watching and writing sitcoms. Occasionally she catches five-minute zen-like powernaps to refresh her spirits and recharge her batteries!
