Cheryl Cran was our opening keynote speaker at the 2018 CSU Facilities Management Conference and she was outstanding! Her message on change, courage and collaboration was exactly what our group needed to hear.

The future is not to be feared when one realizes you are the architect. She shared usable tools that all of us can take back and apply right away for increased team success. Cheryl’s use of texting with audience and polling was greatly appreciated and our group actively engaged with her using these tools. I loved how Cheryl willingly answers ALL text questions including the challenging ones. Texting questions encouraged the public expression of heartfelt concerns.

Many attendees reported through text and Twitter that Cheryl’s dynamic opening keynote set the tone for a very successful two-day conference.”
