Dr. Chérie wrote her dissertation on the relationship between employee satisfaction and customer satisfaction, where she proved conclusively with her research that there is a direct link!


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!

Hilary McClain

The feedback from your presentation, “You Make the Difference” was extremely positive. Daily I receive compliments about your presentation. Employees stop me in the halls to tell me what an impact your comments have had on their lives. I have also had employees call to tell me how your book speaks directly to their situation and needs. The glow from the conference has not worn off.
