The great thing about Sherry, is that she really understands the whole other side, so that you can get it through this concept of understanding the toxicity – the process….she has really made it so understandable how being simple and eating food that is good for you is actually returning to nature and we love that philosophy – it is our philosophy!

I have watched Sherry on the platform and it changed my strategy for good health. We hear lots about improving our lives by eating better but rarely are we moved to take action. Sherry through a wonderful fun loving and informative presentation engages the audience, plays with them, and brings them to a place of actually wanting to improve their own lives, Watch and listen to Sherry and it will improve your life

Sherry is very creative onstage and her ability to use humour to reinforce her message and put her audience at ease is top notch, she is consistently able to get me to laugh out loud at her stories and improvisational interactions with the audience. As a speaker Sherry is one of the best I have heard, she has a passion for her subject, a new and original message and a very fun style that I know your audience will enjoy and get great take home value from.

Tim Gard

I also saw Sherry Strong present for the first time. Man…she is great! The delegates also loved her. She should be included in every conference where there is an emphasis on health and well-being. The audience hung on every word about nutrition. She has such great content re the C-AP we are eating and I’m sure she changed peoples’ behaviour that day. Her style is very natural and being Canadian she understands the Australian sense of humour and had a lot of fun with the audience. I saw a demonstration cooking segment with a member of the audience and then her keynote. Lots of sound info, excellent credentials, great props and support material…very engaging.

Thank you for presenting over the 2 days of our Reach leaders camp. Coming from a professional sports background and working with young people I know getting young people to eat healthily is a hard task. Young people today think they’re eating well but are very unaware of what they are really eating and how it impacts their bodies, now and in their future. They don’t have the same motivation as athletes so it is tough getting them to understand the point in going to the effort. What you managed to do today was make them realize that their bodies do matter. You managed to communicate a powerful message to them more effectively than the professional athletes they have been exposed to. It helps that you live and breathe what you are talking about and everyone responded to your easy to live by balanced approach that doesn’t take enormous sacrifice. You just gave them choice and let them make the decision. You are clearly passionate about what you are doing. Your ability to connect to a tough audience is extraordinary.

Jiivala has given me the confidence to take charge of my life and my destiny. Before Jiivala I was a student seeking guidance. Under Sherry Strong’s mentorship I found my calling and am now excited working toward my dreams creating my own business and seminars already. Jiivala graduates lead with their hearts, teach from experience, and will empower positive change in the lives they touch.

Sam Dobo

I originally took the program for the cooking, thinking the business portion was just something I’d have to endure. I quickly realized, however, it was quite the opposite. For the first time in my life, I was excited by the prospect of turning my passion for writing into a career. In one sentence, Sherry Strong not only educates, she empowers.

Marcie Larson-Fossen

Jiivala taught me that success as a Holistic Entrepreneur comes from my mind, body and spirit operating in harmony with one another. I learnt that knowing myself shapes my holistic venture, my brand or my truth relates to how I translate this knowledge in the market place.

Rachel Greenwood

Sherry Strong is a teacher of leaders. She is an extraordinary representative of a strong female Entrepreneur who didn’t come from success, but created it all herself! This has given her the knowledge on how to teach sprouting entrepreneurs to do the same, to discover their own personal success and in a way that is wholesome and empowering.

Jillian Kolodka

Before the Jiivala Holistic Entrepreneur Program I was thinking that ‘I am 66 years old’ – Since the program I have been thinking ‘I am only 66 years old!’. I am waking up each day filled with the excitement and energy to accomplish the buried dreams that were reawakened in the program.

Jan Erickson

Jiivala to me was all about finding who I am. Before Jiivala I had no direction, I was attending school all the while feeling completely lost with no future in sight. Jiivala gave me that direction and soon became the backbone to my dreams.

Erin Hunt

What I got through Jiivala was clarity in lifestyle design, and the know-how to create a solid future on my own terms. I learnt how to give from a place of strength so that my work can make a positive impact in the world

Lara-Dawn Stiegler

Inspirational – Is what comes to mind when I think about Sherry. She takes the confusion out of nutrition thanks to her philosophies like ’Nature’s Principle’. This concept simplified all the conflicting views on nutrition I learned and now I feel confident to explain nutrition to my clients.

Carmen Dunn

I had the pleasure of experiencing Sherry’s gifts both as teacher and public speaker during my time at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. From the moment she walked into the room she had an energy about her that was truly unique- both radiant and grounded.

Leah Todd

Sherry is a person of great and astounding warmth, integrity, insight, depth and humour. As a teacher and human being, she illuminates and is illuminating. She challenged me to step so far out of my comfort zone without me fully and truly realizing that I was doing it.

Kathleen Cabral

Sherry gets that I have an extremely active and busy life that doesn’t fit into a cookie cutter quick fix prescriptive approach. She tailors her work to suit my life. Her concepts and philosophies make complex and conflicting information make sense and so I can apply her practical wisdom into my way of doing life.

W. Brett Wilson

Thank you for delivering such an entertaining presentation….the response has been 100% positive, with comments like “Sherry’s presentation made the effort to get out of bed more worthwhile.’ ‘Sherry is an excellent speaker – intelligent, witty and logical.’ And ‘Excellent! The presentation was motivating and entertaining!’ You certainly have raised the bar.

Thanks for presenting at our recent conference, Sherry. I received excellent feedback from numerous delegates about both your plenary and workshop sessions. They LOVED the cooking demonstration, particularly with the involvement of Daniel and Brian and the smell of the cooking food directly before lunch! Your presentations were a little out of the box for our conference, as most of the sessions were about financial planning, however you were incredibly well received. Injecting your personality and humour into the presentation was excellent! Our delegates acknowledged that their own health and well being – and that of their staff and clients – is of critical importance and your presentations provided them with a refreshing point of view on the topic. Some delegates are interested in discussing the opportunity for you to present for their staff and clients as a result. From a personal perspective, I took away a lot from your presentation and now consider my food choices much more carefully and look for quality rather than value for money. Thanks again, Sherry!

Your work was right on the money, you worked to the brief, you had them laughing, thinking and inspired to act on the information. You are still a conversation topic at lunch time. You captivated the audience …they were hanging on your every word…we are looking forward to having you present in the upcoming months.

I want to thank you once again for your great presentation at the Christmas luncheon last Friday. Needless to say, the event was a great success. The attendance was stunning (well over double last year) and I’m sure that was largely due to the attractiveness of your presentation.. Congratulations! Your presentation had a brilliant mix of humour, information and heart-felt sentiment. Your use of props was great fun too – even the coffee! I look forward to working together in future.
