Corporate Client Testimonials


Dear Dr. Cherie and Michael Pomije,

It gives Vitallife Corporation and me great honor to document our sincere appreciation to the two of you for engineering the Change Process for Vitallife’s key members. You supported both the management and physician team to become more effective professionals.

From early July, 2010 in your interviews with our management to our retreat held in August, in Thailand, we observed a marked improvement in the following areas: positive attitude, customer service procedures, systems, and a willingness to work effectively together as a team. You then initiated follow up conversations with team members that carried us through the first quarter of 2011.

The board of directors and I have witnessed the shift from non-responsive and uncooperative to positive, supportive, and engaged team players. This has clearly demonstrated your professional skills in managing change, working with
challenging staff, (especially physicians) as well as dealing with cultural differences, and motivating people to change attitudes and behaviors.

What we appreciate the most is the “passion” that you and Michael have demonstrated with your Employee Owned Change: Teambuilding & Customer Service Program to our Vitallife team. The customized approach that you and Michael have extended to our team has resulted in financial growth of 80% net compared to our 2009 performance. The professional development you provided significantly impacted our manager’s attitudes and our daily operations became much more efficient. The result was improved customer service in the #1 healthcare provider in Southeast Asia.

Once again, we thank you both for the tremendous contribution you have made to us. We are also grateful for the relationship that we have developed with you in successfully achieving Vitallife’s corporate objectives in 2010. We will be pleased to be your official reference to any potential clients in the near future.

We look forward to your guidance to our team to meet new challenge facing us in wellness industry.

Chief Executive Officer, Vitallife


It has been about six months since you began working with us here at Republic Indemnity. During that period of time, we have seen a marked improvement in morale and employee attitude throughout the company. I want to point out the improved feelings that our employees have about themselves after attending the self-esteem workshops. All in all we find that working with you and your staff has been a positive experience for Republic Indemnity Company of America.

Hello Dr.Cherie,

This is Jeena John. I am one of the students of IIPM, Hyderabad, where you gave an amazing session on leadership on 26th September 2012. There were many questions running at the back of my mind , in the beginning of the session but as you proceeded further all my doubts were cleared . I thank you so much. The opportunity to attend your session was a blessing for me.

Thank You once again!

Jeena John,

“We used Cherie’s range of skills to help us design and implement programs to help develop our employees. Specifically, the courses addressed coaching, in-house teaching skills, motivating employees, and communicating with challenging clients. We were delighted with the results and the collaborative style with which they designed and presented. The programs suited our culture of Foreigners and Thai nationals perfectly.”

Dear Dr. Cherie,

I wanted to write what I have been saying to you for a while.
I know that seeing words on a page makes the comments more concrete and I want you to know how valuable you have been to our team and to me personally.

First of all, I want to tell you that working with you has been truly wonderful and enjoyable. In every way, you have exceeded my expectations.

A long overdue assignment was searching for the curriculum designer who could create a Train the Trainer program for the Diversity Champion Workshop. No easy task!
We had been searching for the right person and when we finally found you, I was delighted. You took every request that I made and incorporated my wish into our training for MGM MIRAGE. You made the Train the Trainer experiential, included Learning Styles, and created a context for every module. You coached the participants, and had them become comfortable with themselves, and then taught them how to present authentically.

You then presented the program. You took a course that had previously been an 18-month memorization course and transformed it into an absorbable program in 12-weeks!

All of the participants grew in such profound ways that it was like watching a DVD on Fast Forward. They not only grew, they loved growing, and throughout the process they became more human and less reactive and robotic. It was an inspiration to observe their development as people as well as trainers.

Personally, my life is transformed. I am living the life I had previously dreamed of for 10 years. I am spending more time with my family, and I am working on projects that are fulfilling and I know that I am making a difference.

If any prospective clients are looking for: a curriculum designer, a train-the-Trainer, a Coach Trainer, a Coach, or a keynote speaker, I can honestly give my endorsement because I have both personal and professional direct experience from which to draw. It is my pleasure to recommend you!

Sincerely,

Hilary McClain

Richard Funess Managing Director Manning Selvage & Lee
I wanted to write and thank you for having Cherie Carter-Scott, Ph.D. present “Eliminating Negativity from Daily Life” to our professional staff. In a most entertaining, insightful presentation, Cherie gave an uplifting talk that gave us new tools, tricks and buzzwords for overcoming negative self-talk. The staff benefited from the day’s session both personally and professionally.


James Minow Associate VP for Development, Santa Barbara City College

Dear Cherie,
I wanted to extend my sincere thanks for your presentation before the Santa Barbara City College Business and Industry Associates. In looking around the room during your remarks, I had noticed that our audience was locked in rapt attention, hanging on your every word. Our members certainly gained from your remarks and returned to their offices and businesses with something to think about. Again, it was a pleasure to have you join the College for this important event, and I look forward to seeing you on campus again in the near future.


Sylvia

Dear Cherie,
Just a note to say thanks for an effective seminar— I truly enjoyed the day and the interaction. The feedback from Marsha, Ginger, and Valerie was positive and got their “juice” going. I also realized I need to do some role-playing with my agents—they resist doing but it’s really stimulating.


Nani Chang Manager, Insty Prints
Since my consultative sales course I am feeling more proactive than reactive with my clients. I have found the inspiration to actually follow up on quotes, with service-oriented frame of mind rather than my previous mindset ready for rejection. I am eager to follow up on my clients’ satisfaction with a completed job.


Laura Kath, President, Mariah Marketing
Great Job!!! I really like the interactive approach to learning. I appreciate the importance of listening, re-framing and the difference between objections and questions.


Randall L. Schweitzer
Just a quick note to say your speech today was excellent. You are one of the very best inspirational speakers I have ever heard. From the outset, you captured and maintained everyone’s attention. A number of friends were equally impressed. It is refreshing to see a speaker not promote their own services or products, and your call to action from the audience was very well received. Thank you again for your time and thoughts.


Robert D. Freinberg GTE
This note is to express my deepest appreciation in allowing me to attend the Inner Negotiation Workshop and the MMS Institute. To say that those two days had a monumental impact upon my entire outlook would be a gross understatement. I was able to accomplish the following: 1) Reach deeply embedded pain, anger and anguish and release it. 2) Gain a new level of peace and serenity by becoming free from the bondage of my past; 3) Discovered that there is joy and fulfillment to be had if I want it. These accomplishments were made possible by the coaching, love, and support I received from Lynn, Cherie and other participants. Without these people and this process, I could not have reached this new and wonderful place in my life.


Jean Carter INW Participant
Thank you for helping me through my INW process—for helping me complete my mission to find myself. You are miraculous! You took me from “buttons” to the most meaningful discussion (role-play) I’ve ever had with my mother. You helped me use a disappointing “friendship” to give me the push I needed to speak up for myself. Thank you from the bottom of my being. Bless you in all that you do and may you continue with your wonderful journey—self-fulfilling life—in joy and happiness.


Illona Pohschmidt, Co-Chair Education & Training Committee
On behalf of the Education & Training Committee and the members of the Association of Municipal Court Clerks of California, I would like to thank you for your outstanding presentation at our 1993 Southern Spring Conference. I was able to sit in on most of the second session of “Setting Realistic Goals.” Not only did I receive useful information, but your demeanor made it thoroughly enjoyable. I have also heard many other favorable comments and am looking forward to the results of the workshop evaluations. I appreciate the conscientious effort you put forth to make it so worthwhile for our members. I know they are now setting specific, measurable, cost limited goals thanks to your help. Thank you again!


Ulrich Egger, President and Managing Partner Egger, Philips & Partner AG
It is after the conclusion of our last workshop in Switzerland that I enthusiastically write to you. I want you to know that the past three years of cooperation with you and your institute have been a period of intensive learning and growth for us as well as for dozens of Swiss, German, French and Austrian participants of our seminars. You have personally conducted several Inner Negotiation Workshops, Leadership Training, Communication Skills Training, a three months long Consultants Training and a large number of consulting and visioning sessions in Switzerland. We feel very privileged that you have chosen us as your Swiss partners. We have witnessed your living the MMS standard of excellence in training and consulting and thus contributed largely to our own quality standard. In search of one word that gives and adequate rating for your performance here, my partners, colleagues and friends agree: You were BRILLIANT! You have contributed to our well being in an outstanding way. I know that I speak from the bottom of many hearts in Europe, when I say THANK YOU, CHERIE!


David Sorg, Regional Manager California
I wanted to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the Employee Owned Change Program that you introduced to my Branch Contact Center organization. As you know, we accomplished two key objectives. First, we discovered that our employees are passionate about customer service and have answers to many of the business problems facing us today. Second, the survey results gave my management team a tactical plan with specific areas of focus and overall direction. The results have been immediate, positive, and have created a healthier and more productive work environment.


Dwayne Warren Program Chair Hughes Fullerton Management Club
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the membership of the Hughes Fullerton Management Club, I wish to thank you for your excellent presentation on Thursday, 15 October 1992. Our membership thoroughly enjoyed your presentation. The next day at work, some of the members were applying the techniques you suggested for dealing with their fellow Negaholics. To me, that was one of the specific goals we were trying to achieve for our membership. Provide a powerful message and provide effective tools that can be used to be successful in the near future. Thanks again for a very exciting and enjoyable evening.


D. Stonebraker IBM
Your presentation was an absolutely outstanding example of the “participative” learning technique. Talking with the participants shows a wide variation in how the “liked” your program. The big issue of behavior change is not possible to determine. I have used parts of your tape several times to learn from your outstanding ability to not project your thoughts into your listening. I enjoyed having you here and hope we will cross paths again.


Laurie R. Lee President Region IV Interfit Health Services
On behalf of the Association for Worksite Health Promotion I want to thank you for participating as a presenter at the Region VI conference held on April 28th through May 1st 1999. Your presence added to the superior quality of presentations and information available to all conference attendees. We hope that the experience was worthwhile for you, too, and that you were able to enjoy and benefit from other activities at the conference as well. Again, thanks so much for investing your time and sharing your knowledge with all who attended the 1999 Region VI conference.


Linda Lang Abex Aerospace Chapter
Thanks for being our speaker at our monthly meeting. Everyone enjoyed your presentation, and as the meeting planner, that makes me very happy. Even the day after, everyone is walking around saying how much he or she enjoyed the evening. It was just what we needed!

Dorene McCracken Director of Classified Personnel Santa Barbara County Education Office
Thank you very much for your participation in our Classified Professional Growth Day held on May 20th. A review of the evaluation forms tells us your presentation was well received by those attending you session. You are an excellent speaker and held the interest of the audience throughout your presentation. On behalf of the classified staff and the planning team, thank you again for your time and effort given to the success of our program.


Deborah Weber State Farm Insurance
It has been just over a week since you spoke to our support staff at our “You Make a Difference” seminar. Feedback from our seminar has been extremely positive. Daily I receive comments and compliments about the overall program. Most of the comments are specifically about your presentation. Employees stop me in the halls to tell me what an impact your comments have had on their lives. Your comments, your sincerity, your empathy all attributed to this special event. I want to thank you for your time and energy in helping us make this program very special to a very special group of people. Thanks so much.


Claudia DeMarco Associate Director Tri-Counties Regional Center
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your exemplary efforts on behalf of Tri-Counties Regional Center. Our Community Meetings were very successful due in large part to your excellent facilitating and interaction with the participants. The three groups were somewhat different in composition and you handled each of them with finesse, professionalism and special attention to our consumers and their input. Your positive approach, quick study and immediate availability are traits we value highly. We received many compliments on the manner in which the public input was handled. Those thanks are shared with you.


Tineke van der Vorest CEO & President Vorst-Impuls Training & Management
I want you to know how much I enjoy working with you. It is an inspiration and a joy for me to see you empower people to take charge of their lives and make extraordinary things happen. As a speaker, I find you engaging, motivating, entertaining and an excellent educator. The keynote speech you have to our group flew by so quickly that I could hardly believe it. As a workshop leader, I find the Inner Negotiation Workshop brilliant and your work totally magical. I see more movement in people’s lives in one weekend than in years of analysis. As a colleague, I thoroughly enjoy working with you. WE do extraordinary work, I always learn, and we are a great team. I look forward to many years of collaboration together.
