“I found Cheryl’s presentation to be inspiring, motivational, and fun. Our group enjoyed the many references to her teams’ path to the Olympic Games and ultimately the last rock heartache that led to the Silver Medal. Cheryl’s delivery and message were extremely positive and outlined the work necessary to achieve great results. Her presentation was a great fit for my advisors who run a complex business and need great work ethic to be successful. We all enjoyed her fun yet sincere approach to the presentation and I would highly recommend her to other groups who are looking for an Olympian to motivate, teach about team building, and inspire.”
