Here's What Event Organizers Are Saying

Monica Graham
Vice President, Operations Manager

“Sheryl Kline did an amazing job training our team on having difficult conversations while remaining highly influential. She effortlessly connected and engaged our group over a half-day virtual training session. The content was poignantly relevant. It hit several key areas of focus and provided clear-cut ways to be successful in any situation. By the end of the training, we all had several tools that could implement immediately. Within 24 hours I had attendees let me know they applied their new skills in delicate or emotionally charged interactions with resounding success. We are looking forward to part II with her new book dropping soon. We would love to work with Sheryl again in the future. She is a delight and inspiration!”

Staci Bender

Sheryl was energetic, thoughtful, and inclusive, all qualities we look for in our speakers. She engaged our virtual audience and made them feel seen, which is not easy in our virtual world. Sheryl has a proven track record of working with high performers and our employees learned the importance of influencing up, expanding their network, and feeling confident and heard. We look forward to working with Sheryl in the future.”
