Opening Keynote Address

Front-Row Leadership

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 | 2PM - 4PM

Marilyn Sherman, CSP

MarilynShermanAs a Front-Row Leadership expert, Marilyn Sherman inspires people to take charge of their career and life with dynamic keynotes and workshops that focus on three things: vision, goal achievement, and having a ‘no-more excuses’ mindset. It’s time to get out of that rut, stop settling for mediocrity, and it’s certainly time to end workplace stagnation. Attendees of Marilyn’s programs gain clarity, increase their confidence, take control of their attitudes, and are motivated to stretch themselves in all aspects of their life. Marilyn inspires people to get out of their comfort zone, overcome obstacles, and take a front-row seat in life. Her passion is helping people reach their true potential. For example, she inspires employees to go from an attitude of entitlement to an attitude of gratitude resulting in: better customer service, increased productivity, increased accountability for overcoming obstacles and less conflict in the workplace. She teaches people how going above and beyond truly makes a difference for others, as well as creating a positive impact in their own lives.

Marilyn's clients hire her to deliver a message of hope and inspiration that resonates with each individual, so everyone can leave her presentation with the tools and confidence to set and reach goals. Attendees are engaged and inspired to be accountable for their own success, which affects their results in leadership and sales. In addition to being a popular motivational keynote speaker, Marilyn is also the author of three motivational career-focused books. In 2015, Marilyn was recognized as one of the Top 10 Motivational Keynote Speakers to hire (based on her content, presentation style, and value delivered to her audience). Marilyn is a graduate of Washington State University, and is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) – the highest earned designation in the speaking profession (with fewer than 10% of professional speakers earning this certification).
