Personal Growth Expert, Marilyn Sherman, is Honored as a Certified Speaking Professional 

San Diego, CA – July 6, 2014 – During the National Speakers Association (NSA) Convention in San Diego, the association for the professional speaking industry, NSA recognized Marilyn Sherman as a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP). It is the highest earned designation in the speaking profession.

A CSP is granted to professional speakers within the industry as a level of excellence once specific and strictly-measured criteria are met (based on a set number of engagements, list of clients, audience size, praised feedback, and dollar amount within a limited time-frame).

Sherman (local to Las Vegas, Nevada) is a Personal Power Expert encouraging her audiences and everyone around her to get a front-row seat in life. She teaches people the importance of having a positive ‘no more excuses’ mindset, which has lead to increased productivity and sales, business growth, and the improvement of internal communication. Sherman’s focus is pushing people out of their comfort zone in order to reach their goals, pursue their dreams, and become more productive and happier at work. Sherman is also an expert in managing change and has addressed issues on this topic for several Fortune 500 companies.

A past client has stated, "I have worked with many speakers over the years - none have been as creative, informative, easy to work with, clear on her message and engaging as Marilyn. I have watched her take an apathetic audience and turn them into believers - if you want a real professional to add to your meeting, conference or agenda - Marilyn is your go-to person!!”

Established in 1980 by the National Speakers Association, the CSP is earned by fewer than 10-percent of professional speakers. It is awarded to distinguish those who have conducted a high-standard of business as a Speaker, and not just a hobbyist.

In addition to speaking, Sherman has written and published three books, Whose Comfort Zone Are You In?, Why Settle for the Balcony? How to get a Front-Row Seat in Life!, and Front-Row Service. Each book is titled from a program and can be used as a continuous learning extension of her keynote.
