“Solid Gold” Testimonials

I recently attended a workshop presented by Sheryl Roush entitled, “Market Like A Pro! For Presenters, Coaches & Consultants.” In this workshop Sheryl helped us answer the questions of how clear we are about who our ideal client is, what our desired market is and who would be our perfect audience. Sheryl is a dynamic presenter with a passion to take other professionals to another level of their career and move their professional goals to new heights. Sheryl has a way of also presenting and engaging each person in a way that is tailored and specifically supports each participant.”

As a respected and very successful member of the National Speakers Association (NSA), Sheryl was hand-selected to be a critical presenter and trainer for the recent kick-off meeting of the 10 month Speaker Academy Northern California NSA program. I was fortunate to be in attendance and was highly impressed with Sheryl’s detailed depth of knowledge, scope of experience, and most importantly, her authentic, friendly but powerful, and engaging style of speaking and training. Her commitment to her audience/client’s/student’s success with insightful and honest exchanges and examples was wonderful to behold and experience. Her energy is constructive and positive, and her content informed and inspiring.  A ++ all around. She brings tremendous value as a speaker and trainer… if you are thinking of hiring her, stop thinking and just do it. She is a rare gem and you won’t regret it.

“Sheryl is a great mentor! It’s quite astounding how much, even only 1 session with her, pays off. The fact that you get the recorded session is absolutely a plus! It’s a great tool to come back to, over and over again. I feel blessed that our paths crossed and would recommend Sheryl to everyone who needs that extra push, to make the next step in your journey. I love Sheryl’s direct, supportive and hands-on approach!
Kristel Vereeken, Founder Ghent-Authentic, Premier Tour Guiding Service Ghent

“Sheryl Roush is a magnificent coach. Sheryl took the time to review my website, social media, and past speaking presentations. Through her research, thoughtfulness, and experience I immediately felt like Sheryl knew me, understood me as a speaker, and most importantly helped to see my future and validate my abilities. Her feedback and advice were tailored to me, simple and direct. She left me feeling quite sparkly! I highly recommend letting Sheryl get to know you to help you develop your true potential.”
Jill P. Mott, Photo Adviser at Rocky Mountain Student Media Corp.

“Sheryl’s energy & passion kept my engaged. Her insight into marketing & branding are game-changers! Most of all, her many ideas are immediately usable. Looking forward implementing them to take my business to a higher level. I will drive through another snowstorm if necessary to hear Sheryl speak.”

“In my corporate life, I oversaw print advertising for many years
but darned if I didn’t take several pages of notes in your presentation. It was really good stuff!

“Just a quick note to let you know that I continue to appreciate your graphic design wisdom.
I’m amazed at how I keep learning new things!”

Sarita Maybin

“As a speaker, my credibility is reflected – enhanced or diminished – by the visual quality of my support material – my newsletters, handouts, one-sheets and brochures. Sheryl’s insights, techniques, and PRACTICAL wisdom give me confidence and save me money, time, and aggravation.

Christopher Witt, Ph.D.
Witt Communications


Your reputation had proceeded you, but I don’t think that anybody was prepared for the level of presentation that you provided. You shared tips, hints, and secrets on how WE could become great. The feedback received was one of the best, if not the best, we have ever received.”

Mike Rounds, Dean, Masters Track
National Speakers Association, Los Angeles Chapter


“Sheryl was vivacious, offered a wealth of knowledge and was very practical. Everything we hoped for!”
