Tremendous resource and cool, and fun stories.
Cheryl's passion and love for this profession blasts thorugh in her conversations and intelligent questions for the listeners and guest speakers. In particular the one withTina Schafer, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the The Bitter End in NYC when she was the host of the Singer Song Writer Circle. Cheryl is the real deal, as is the informative program of Key Conversations. So much real world information.
