You’d never guess that Sheryl Roush was painfully SHY as a child. Her mother dragged her on her Avon route, making her meet people. Then in high school, as the Commissioner of Pep she had to lead the Pep Rallies – in front of 2,000 fellow students and faculty. She couldn’t sleep for days before, spoke nervously and cried in private. Years later, as a business owner, she’d have trouble getting her name out of her mouth to introduce herself at networking meetings. One such meeting, a woman suggested she join Toastmasters, and Sheryl took that advice back in 1987. Although she cried her first three speeches in the safety of her small club, was able to shift her fears, and go on to become a confident speaker!
Sheryl has over three decades of diverse experience and expertise in communication skills, public speaking, social media and print advertising. She started her first business at 16, and has owned five graphic design studios, becoming a speaker and author to help others valuable skills to use in their own businesses.
Combining her skills in speaking and marketing she founded Speak And Market Like a Pro™ coaching to teach speaking skills to professionals who want to expand into the business of public speaking. Sheryl is the ultimate speakers’ coach consistently creating rising stars in the speaking business and in their organizations. Through her insightful coaching and how-to workshops she helps individuals bring out their brilliance and authenticity — in person, in public and in print.
