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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sherry was awe-inspiring and really funny, relevant to us both personally and professionally, informative, motivating, practical and entertaining. What an eye opener… easily understood with some simple tips to take on board….I would recommend her without hesitation.
Your professionalism and commitment to providing a first class presentation made our event successful as well as enjoyable. The participants were captivated by your lively, entertaining and motivating session.
Brilliant session. in your presentation you were most giving in sharing of your personal story, your hints and instructions on good eating, your delicious food samples and the recipes which made for a well rounded presentation that had everyone involved and enjoying the experience.. haven’t got over your sensational Canadian ‘Call of the Wild’ it creates a freedom and space at the start of the presentation that frees up everyone who hears it to leave their inhibitions behind.
On behalf of the North West Region of Business Managers I wish to congratulate you on your lively, entertaining and motivating presentation.. our audience particularly enjoyed your ‘Canadian Call of the Wild’ and your ‘Stone Soup’ story. your passion was contagious. Thank you for and awakening of the joys of good food. You gave us a wonderfully humorous and intelligent 60 minutes
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.
