Samina Azam, Microsoft, Rhonda Scharf, what a session wow. Your energy and your delivery was I listened intently and wanted to soak it all in, not missing anything.
Monica Bercher, NATO: I have just attended the workshop “Minute Taking Made Easy” by Rhonda Scharf. She makes a very challenging topic – interesting and fun. It was a great workshop, with a lot of valuable information and guidance. I would not want to have missed it. I can highly recommend it.
Jackie Handy: Rhonda and I are both proud members of the global speaking community who recently attended the GSS (Global Speakers Summit) in Dublin, Ireland. Rhonda was our compere on stage for Day 2 and she brought such energy and enthusiasm to the stage I felt compelled to write this. The role of compere is not an easy one and can really make or break a conference experience, but Rhonda made it look effortless, bringing that wonderful combination of fun and professionalism to life and had clearly done her research about the event, the location and the speakers. Superb job Rhonda!
Karen Moe, Chevron: Where to begin! Rhonda Scharf is amazing. She was informative, energetic, kept the conversations going live, on chat, and with the hand raises. Virtual is a challenge but not for Rhonda. We felt like she was sitting right in front of us. Her content was fresh and engaging. We will have her back again at LEAST two more times this year. Rhonda, thank you for strengthening our workforce!
Jackie Barrie: I’m not surprised Rhonda has won the rare ‘Hall of Fame’ award for professional speaking – I recently saw her emcee an online convention and she was outstanding! Fast, funny and utterly in control. If you want a world-class keynote speaker, book her while you still can.
