Testimonials

"Cherylanne is an outstanding public speaker and coach --- her approach to life design is engaging, inspiring and mind-opening---especially for the uber-busy woman! Cherylanne helped us kick off the 2015-2016 Junior League of Cincinnati year with a working session. She easily established a rapport with the 180+ JLC members present, and helped us set the tone and vision for the busy year ahead. Several JLC members took the extra step to hire Cherylanne as a personal life design coach, and the feedback we received from the general membership present that evening was off-the-charts with positivity! Given the diversity of the women present at the session, especially when considering the wide age range, (20s - 70s) the consistent high marks for Cherylanne's work is even more impressive. Cherylanne is a stellar professional, and a trusted confidant! Highly, highly recommended!"

Michelle Vaeth, Global Brand Builder, Storyteller, Architect of Partnerships, Tully, New York

"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 'Bridging the Confidence Gap with Courage' was very well received with our women, 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!"

Amy Hoekzema, IT Leader, Global Grooming Business

"Cherylanne presented to the Chamber's WE Lead program -- an audience of 54 executive women in a 10-month professional development program. These busy women want and need excellent speakers who provide information they can use. Cherylanne connected with the group, delivering on that and more. Below are some of the comments from the participants. Additionally, we were so impressed with the presentation that the Chamber invited her to speak to its employees. Cherylanne is passionate, knowledgeable and a savvy presenter.

  • Very worthwhile.
  • Loved! Excellent speaker and presentation.
  • Wonderful! Loved the energy, challenge she put out.
  • I loved her! Thank you for having someone who didn’t say the same things  – was more about a plan.
  • Great, realistic examples. Practical advice was nice.
  • Good tips and reminders for taking control."

Diana Long, Training and Development Professional, Cincinnati

"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."

Jouett Brenzel, Kao NOW Education Committee

The members of the newly formed Kao Network of Women had expressed a strong interest in the subject of mentoring. So we were excited to have Cherylanne address the topic in her presentation “Mentorship for the Modern Workplace.” Cherylanne was spot on! She provided insight on why each of us needs multiple mentors—personally and professionally–…

Kaitlin Sitchenko, Atlanta GA

Cherylanne Skolnicki, thank you. As a “too-busy” lady, exhausted by trying to keep my floundering ducks “looking good” (in an alleged row), your talk was “beyond” exactly what I needed to hear that day. You are inspirational — the confidence, vulnerability, and honesty of your talk made the room shine. I hope to find myself along…

Simone, Atlanta GA

Thank you for such a powerful session at the #GoizuetaENGAGE conference.  I walked away from today’s session feeling that not only was I armed with a new definition of success, but also that I had finally met someone who had created a career that I desired to model. If I am honest about my skills, I know,…

Chris, Mason OH

First of all, I want to say how much I really enjoyed your talk at our event this week.  In general, I do not belong to any women’s groups and do not like to set myself aside as being any different than any of my male counterparts; after all, I feel everyone has some sort of…

Penny, Loveland, OH

Cherylanne is such an awesome speaker. She spoke to a group of moms who are all knee deep in the trenches of toddlerhood. Her ability to relate to us with compassion, sensitivity and enthusiasm was appreciated by all. She spoke about eating well and nutrition and the group was completely focused on her every word,…

Paaras, Cincinnati, OH

I heard you speak at the Junior League of Cincinnati earlier this month and what you said really resonated with me. I felt so empowered after the session and ready to #BREAKTHROUGH! Thanks for picking me to be your volunteer. Simple words can be so life changing. Here’s to living a life of significance. Thanks…

Laurie Brinkman, Cincinnati, OH

The Cincinnati Chamber’s “Wellness Committee” brought Cherylanne into the Chamber to kick off the new year with a postive approach! She spoke to our employees for approximately 30 minutes, and during that time, she had everyone’s attention and captivated the audience with her enthusiastic approach towards healthy living. Everyone was able to relate to what…
