"Best speaker I’ve seen at a conference. Ever." Eric Jacobs, Environmental Protection Specialist, Colorado Dept of Public Health & Environment

"Sharon was one of the best-reviewed speakers we’ve had at one of our conferences. Our members were on their feet, engaging with her and other audience members. That’s not an easy thing to do with this crowd, but they loved it. And we’re glad Sharon could help us launch our conference with this fun, energetic, and fascinating presentation."

CATHLEEN HALL, Colorado Rocky Mountain Solid Waste Association Conference Chair  

"Sharon gave us another great training, and we already know we want to have her back next year. She’s dynamic, fun, and gives us so much great, practical information. 

BRADLEY GASSMAN, Safety & Environmental Director, Association of General Contractors, Colorado"

"I would book Sharon to keynote another event in a heartbeat. Before the event, I can count on her for her professionalism and timeliness. At the event, she knocks it out of the park with her ability to engage and interact with the audience. I heard so many positive comments from my attendees about Sharon. We were all excited about getting so many useful strategies we could take home with us."

CORRINNE SULLIVAN , Meetings Planner, One Call Concepts  

“I love having Sharon at our events. I can count on her unique point of view, engaging style, and professionalism.” 

COURTNEY PHILPOTT, Conferences & Meetings Coordinator, Tennessee Valley Public Power Association

"Sharon went above and beyond as our keynote speaker. 

Not only did she give us a great speech— I am still getting feedback from conference attendees on the impact of her keynote presentation and how they are making small habit changes in their lives and reflecting on their time at the conference-- but she also attended other events we had that day and facilitated a special session for just a few of our attendees. 

This roundtable discussion was a deep dive that allowed us to go in depth into the material as well as learn from our colleagues. It was a great bonus event, and I would highly recommend bringing Sharon to your event."

SHELLY FULLER, National Association of Hazardous Material Managers Conference Chair  

“I’ve been working with Sharon Lipinski on a couple different conferences, and they were two completely different audiences. And she did a wonderful job of being able to relate her message to anyone in the crowd.” 

STEPAHNIE ORR, Meeting Planner  

“Our annual institute was kicked off in the best way possible. We had the opportunity and honor of having Sharon speak to us and really lay the groundwork for what is going to be the next 3 days of hard work.” 

JANICE CRAMPTOON, Executive Director, Association of Independent School Admission Professionals  

“What a neat tool. You can sit down in an afternoon session, and I’m going home with an action plan. And I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about that. I would recommend that anyone bring Sharon in." 

DAN HODGES, Executive Director, Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities  

"I heard so many positive comments from not just my members but also my staff. They loved that they could immediately apply her strategies to improve their organization’s safety and their own health. Plus, she was fun and engaging. We’ll definitely invite her back for future events."

GREG BARLOW, CSP, CET, Loss Control Manager, CIRSA

"THANK YOU Sharon Lipinski for blessing the Women’s Leadership group at my agency yesterday. Your session was the first that drew a record breaking 95% attendance rate — I guess that’s what happens when a Super Hero shows up! You coached, guided, informed and inspired us to identify the habits we want and provided us with a very prescriptive strategy to make them part of our everyday lives."  


“I asked Sharon to speak to our group after hearing her present at another event, and I’m so glad I did. She expertly tailored her presentation to the needs and challenges of our general and specialty contractors. Her presentation style held people’s attention and engaged them with strategies and insights they could take back to their jobs."  

PERRY SILVEY, Director of Health & Safety Iron Woman Construction

“Her insights on Living Generously and being healthy in body, mind, and spirit were so valuable, I felt that I was giving back to the women who support our school. Sharon gave a personal yet universal, practical yet inspirational speech that the Georgia Southern Women loved.”  

GLORIA MORGAN, Director of Annual Giving, Georgia Southern

“It was so refreshing to hear Sharon speak. She didn’t give a typical rah-rah speech or lecture us with clichés. She helped each person understand what they wanted to change in their lives, and then helped them craft a strategy for making it happen. Sharon’s presentation was enlightening, empowering, and transformative.”  

LEIGH STENBY, Vice President Mercer  

“Sharon’s presentation was perfect! She was clear and concise, easy to listen to and right on target. Sharon delivers her organizational story with a very interesting style and detail that holds the attention of the listener. She can field questions with ease and brevity and makes the audience very comfortable for the duration. She is a very accomplished speaker.”  

ELLE SHEPHARD, Women’s Group Leader

“Couldn't have been more impressed with her authenticity, her message, her ability to engage, and get us to take action.”  

"This presentation was awesome. It was practical. It was informational. It really spoke to me."  

"It was authentic, It was relatable. It was manageable. It commanded us and demanded us to put some things down right then and there."

Thank you again for helping make our conference successful!  

HOPE PETRIE, Navarro County

Thank you very much for the very interesting and enjoyable session yesterday at our ASSP Three Rivers Chapter meeting. We heard a lot of good comments.

"Great reviews (again) on the workshop evaluations... all 4’s and 5’s."

SAM ERGER, Innovative Captive Solutions  

"This morning’s meeting was the most informative and useful CCA/RMC I’ve attended in a long time, thanks to your presentation. I got the impression that we could have gone on for another hour or two on this topic, and probably we should have. "  

DEAN BURNS, Safety & Health Manager, Tezak Heavy Equipment 

I really enjoyed the presentation, you have a terrific way of reaching people. If I heard that sound again I know I’ll jump up and stretch.  

LARRY CLOUD, Dow Pipeline Company

I just wanted to write and say thank you for the information. I absolutely am fascinated about how our brain works and how we do, and why we do what we do. It was wonderful to see your presentation. I didn’t expect that at the conference. I really appreciate it. 

RICHARD A. CULLIP, Logan County Landfill,  

"Sharon spoke for our manufacturing organization and did a phenomenal job! It is so nice to see a presenter who doesn’t just talk from the slides but can engage the audience in questions and answers and talk clearly and compelling about a topic. As a result, our attendees will be able to implement the lessons we learned into their everyday operations."

CHELSIE BELLER, Education Committee Chair, NoCo Manufacturing Council

"Thank you very much for making the time to join us in Crested Butte for our annual conference. I found your presentation to be very informative and super engaging. I heard several people at dinner on Thursday raving about it and have passed along your contact info to several members. Thanks again and I hope to be able to work with you again sometime in the future!” 

DAN HODGES, President, Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities

Honestly – I decided to make a day of it to get the most out of the CIRSA meeting and I’m so glad I did! Your session was great. I’m going to get a copy of your book."  

ALLISON SCHECK, Administrative Services Director, City of Wheatridge
