Cher is simply wonderful. As her session descriptions aptly promise, she is a skilled trainer who creates wonderfully interactive environments for participants to discuss, grow, and learn. I have had the opportunity to invite Cher to work with a wide range of audiences in my organization, from senior execs to managers to volunteer leaders. In every instance, she has been wonderful to work with and exceeded our expectations.

Can you say “WOW”! I mean can you say “WOW”! I have had the distinct pleasure of knowing and working with Cher for more than 15 years. Cher is truly a Customer/Client Advocate! Cher starts all her consultations with, “At the end of my session what do you want your team members to walk away from the session with?” Everyone that I have ever sent to a Cher EXPERIENCE and you have to use the word EXPERIENCE is never the same after. Her message sticks and I still find myself to this day referring to things she taught me in the first session I ever attended in 1994. Cher is CHARISMATIC, HONEST, ENERGIZING, and RIGHT ON for transforming individuals and teams! I highly recommend your organization using Cher and her expertise to transform your organization and you.

I wanted to let you know how extremely pleased our audience was with your presentation at our Leadership Conference in Rio Rancho, NM. The team building exercises brought out the most enthusiasm I have seen in a group of people who had never met before. Your enthusiasm was contagious. You made us think, laugh, and some even cry with your incredible story-telling ability. … We look forward to working with you both again at our future conferences around the country.
–Cindy Kornegay, Director
You had your work cut out for you in terms of meeting our objectives, but you actually exceeded our expectations! You were able to generate excitement and interest among our team leaders and managers, and provide tools and strategies to address every issue they brought to the program.
Your ability to present an incredible amount of usable information while staying focused on participant needs, and to involve everyone in a powerful way is impressive. Every session was fun, informative, and exciting. Folks are asking for more!
–Tricia Payne, Q.A. Training Coordinator
Your session (with our bookers on Reframing to Book More Guests) was fantastic! I just downloaded it so we can listen again. You really presented sound and motivating points which we need to review in order to incorporate. This motivation and new confidence will translate into better relationships with producers and more bookings!… You are a gifted speaker and motivator.

Cher is one of the few consultants that I have worked with in my 20+ years in Organizational Development that truly understands and values, “partnering”. Her passion, background and expertise allows her to consistently design and implement strategies that at the end of the day make a dramatic impact and positive difference. She provides customized solutions for any client she comes in contact with. After my clients utilized her services, they continually asked for her to partner with them over and over again.

You are paragon professionals! Your coaching sessions helped me distill down my message into a single memorable “sound byte” that reflected the benefits I have to offer. You beautifully blended time-honored speaking strategies with my topic to accelerate my platform and presentation skills. You had my best interests in mind, and this created an excellent synergetic partnership that spawned a wealth of marketing, keynote, and breakout session ideas that I continue to draw from!

I was part of Sprint PCS start-up team in Fort Worth, TX, and I have tremendous vivid joyful memories of each of our meetings! Your insight, knowledge, caring and wisdom have helped me to grow as an individual, as a person, and as a manager of people. … Your books, along with our meetings, have helped me complete my managerial philosophy, as well as help me to be successful in life. I often quote you (and give you credit!) in my training. You are awesome!
–Jorge Molina, VP, Customer Relations/HRD
It is always a pleasure doing business with folks who are fun and friendly—and you two certainly are! You did a super job on your speech—and the dance was just the icing on the cake! You gave us great techniques to “Dance through life on two left feet!” My mail box has been flooded with positive feedback! Thanks so much – and MOOMBA, MOOMBA, MOOMBA!!
I have just finished my telephone poll with the participants in your recent training session. Some of the newer trainers thought you had worked for Office Depot because you know the situations they faced every day. The research you did really hit home because the session was all about them. Your program was so focused on Office Depot, the cultural issues and the work issues our trainers deal with. You really do “walk the talk” and have become a legend and a role model! Thanks for making me look good for hiring you.
