Sheila Skolnick’s keynote speech – “Say Yes to Everything” – is both enjoyable and inspirational. Sheila’s message is, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.” Sheila’s story is truly “rags to riches.” She is a hospitality industry veteran who began her career selling supplies door-to-door. Within a few years, Sheila was running her own distribution and manufacturing company, and providing operating equipment and supplies to hotels around the world. Sheila created and started this business with no money, no knowledge and no connections. She ultimately sold her business to a $6 billion company. On a personal level, Sheila overcame challenges that included poverty, a bad education, a dysfunctional home and a dangerous neighborhood. She taught herself to read in high school and developed a “no excuses” mindset. Over her life, Sheila has said “yes” to many opportunities. Today she works as a business consultant and mentor, helping to solve difficult business problems, transform company culture, and to pass on her “say yes” mindset.......and of course a speaker! Sheila is an engaging speaker whose story of persistence and passion is especially relevant to everyone in the business arena. They will leave the luncheon entertained and inspired to “say yes” to opportunities in their work and personal lives.
