"When Cherylanne spoke to our group, it was like she could literally read my mind! She's clearly an expert, but she could 100% relate to the choices I'm wrestling with right now. Her ideas were so practical! I felt 10 pounds lighter and three inches taller by the time I left the room."

- rachel

"Cherylanne came and spoke to our North American Women in IT Organization and she was AMAZING! Definitely one of the BEST external speakers we have had in several years. The topic was very well received by our employees, regardless of years or level within our company. Everyone could relate to Cherylanne's stories, facts, and examples and she delivered it with warmth and humor. We loved this talk and loved her as a speaker!"
