“I had the pleasure to attend Sheryl’s virtual training on presenting like a pro and it was one of the highlights of my year so far! Sheryl is not only a fun and energetic trainer but also very detail oriented. She walked us through every stage right from preparing to presenting and post-presentation which was truly well crafted. I started implementing her tips the same day for my virtual calls with teams in Asia by focusing on the gotta-know in the body of my message. Since I work a lot with cross-functional partners from around the globe, it is important for me to ensure engagement throughout the meetings. And I can already see Sheryl’s training help me! ”
Akanksha P Mohla, MBA, Manager, Global SIOP at Mattel, Inc.
“When working with Sheryl, you experience a sparkle with every touch point. Rarely do you find someone with the excellence and level of detail that Sheryl gives to deliver a personalized presentation that is packed with value and golden nuggets that you can apply immediately. In one of our recent virtual trainings with 125 participants from across the U.S. and Canada, Sheryl kept the group captivated and excited to test out their learnings. Looking forward to working with her again.”
Giovanna Dottore, Senior Manager, Supply Chain Org Development, Mattel, Inc.
“As the Region 7 Assistant Director of the International Association of Venue Managers we recently invited Sheryl to speak at our region conference. Sheryl provided a powerful and engaging message. Sheryl’s expertise is communication skills for the workplace and she re-energized us to get back to the workplace. Many of us in our industry have been either laid off or furloughed this past year and Sheryl was a breath of fresh air. She was positive, and brought excitement back to the attendees. Although the conference was virtual, she was able to bring the session to life. Sheryl engaged in real time and in the chats. This was not like most other virtual sessions I have been part of. We look forward to inviting her back again for future meetings. This is the second time we have had the opportunity to have Sheryl part of our education and connecting opportunities. Thank you Sheryl for being such a light and sharing your magic with us!”
Shelley Albanese, General Manager, Visalia Convention Center,
Assistant Director of the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM)
IAVM Annual Conference, theme “Re-Energize Your Magic!” April 2021
“Sheryl gave an incredibly engaging presentation titled “Communication Skills for the Workplace: Re-Energizing Connection and Teamwork” which focused on best practices in collaborating with team members and colleagues. Sheryl laid the groundwork for her presentation by taking the time to speak with a few of the conference attendees about their experiences and the industry. She then took the information from these exchanges and incorporated them into her talk, highlighting each of the individuals she interviewed. This special touch allowed Sheryl to create a tailored session that really spoke to the audience. The presentation was extremely relevant and relatable for attendees and Sheryl’s positive and energetic demeanor made for a phenomenal experience. I am so happy to know Sheryl and would 100% recommend her as a speaker for your next engagement or event.
Karly Watson, Event Management
“Sheryl was one of our speakers at the Turkey Virtual Corporate Summit. She is a great speaker that I already witnessed before and this time she impressed me with her tailoring her presentation for the Turkish corporate manager audience in the virtual presentation. Plus, it was 6am for her, due to the time difference, still her energy was so high. She does whatever she can to serve at a higher level. You can count on her in your events as a speaker.”

“Working with Sheryl is a dream. She fulfills every customer service credo that exists – always going beyond the expected to assist YOU in your planning. Her mind is a non-stop brainstorm of creative ideas that add punch and pizzazz to any event – and all of this in addition to her own outstanding presentation that will have your audience implementing ideas and taking action. Sheryl IS the WOW factor you’ve been looking for!”
Marcia Snow, President, Blue Feather Management
“Sheryl was dynamite at the NSA-Ohio chapter meeting for so many reasons! Not only was she one of the easiest speakers to work with, she went above and beyond to market the meeting before the meeting. Then, she wow’d the chapter with her content about effective marketing. Her templates for one sheets and tips on website content were awesome. She was high-energy, kind, funny and so helpful. The most impressive part: Ohio was slammed with a blizzard, and many registrants were unable to attend. We had less than half the normal attendance, but it didn’t stop her. She treated the entire group like superstars. We live-streamed the meeting via Zoom, and she did an extraordinary job of keeping the remote viewers engaged as if they were in the room. The feedback from everyone was that she did a spectacular job. Don’t hesitate to bring her into your chapter!”
Maureen Zappala, 2017-18 President
National Speakers Association, Ohio Chapter
“Thank you , thank you, thank you. You knocked it out of the park this morning. You gave everyone so much to think about and use immediately. Not only was it full of meaty material, you presented it in a meaningful way. I have no doubt my future presentations are going to be better because of what you have given us today. I’m sure everyone else feels the same way.”
Bev LeBlanc, Program Quality Director, Alberta, Canada, June 26, 2021
“Sheryl Roush is such a dynamic and engaging speaker that we felt very lucky to have her present at the 2016 Mensa-Con American Mensa Annual Gathering.

We were fortunate that it was effortless to work with her regarding scheduling and setup and she exceeded our expectations as an interactive and captivating addition to our Leadership Development program.”
