“Cheryl was the keynote speaker at our annual summit in Toronto and shared her thoughts on “The Future of Work” with our leaders. After a tumultuous year of unprecedented challenges with labour, inflation and the changing work environment, Cheryl’s insights and perspectives were both reassuring that we’re not alone and eye-opening in terms of how to tackle issues that aren’t going away anytime soon. Her ability to connect with the audience and make stories relatable and actionable was terrific. Cheryl’s keynote set the stage for two days of learning and inspiration for our leaders on how to embrace the future with confidence, resilience and conviction that we can win in business and in the hearts and minds of our associates.”
