I remember my high school band director telling my parents that I had the gift of gab. It has taken a long time for that gift to be rewarded financially. I love to talk and share tips on Social Media, Event Marketing, and Internet and Mobile marketing strategies. Let's talk about how my gift can help you.

Cheryl Lawson is an inspirational individual who brings 110% to the table. Her passion for life, upbeat personality and creative mind make her an asset to any organization. Cheryl brings clarity to complex concepts—from understanding social media networking, event planning, personal branding or motivating others. She has a knack of making participants feel at ease, with tremendous connectivity and yet very genuine. Cheryl was the a featured guest speaker and trainer for my national sales meeting. Prior to her presentation, more than half of the group had little to no knowledge of the topic she covered…but by the end of the day Cheryl had inspired every person with the confidence to engage and utilize the skills she provided that day.
