Marilyn Sherman

Marilyn Sherman was inducted into the National Speaker Association’s CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame in 2018. She is one of 182 members in the world who hold this designation, that is a representation of her body of work in the speaking profession to the clients she has served for over 25 years. In those years, she has motivated  audiences to get out of their comfort zone and get a front-row seat in life. Marilyn is also the author of four motivational books, including Is There A Hole In Your Bucket List?, Whose Comfort Zone Are You In?, Why Settle for the Balcony: How to Get a Front-Row Seat in Life, and Front-Row Service.

After starting her career in corporate America, she is now seen as the go-to motivational keynote speaker for corporate and association markets that want their people to improve their morale, teamwork, and communication skills and ultimately achieve more results. With her background as a training officer for a major finance company, Marilyn honed her skills to motivate audiences who are often hard to motivate. With her engaging, and fun personality, Marilyn connects with her audiences quickly and delivers content that they can immediately use when they get back to their office.

Marilyn is a graduate of Washington State University and after working for Chrysler First Financial Services, she was a contract speaker for one of the top seminar companies in the United States and Canada. She officially received road warrior status after delivering six-hour professional development seminars up to 5 cities a week up to three weeks a month for five years! In 1998, she founded UpFront Presentations, a speaking and training company serving companies in the corporate, franchise, and direct sales world just to name a few. She has earned her Certified Speaking Professional designation, the highest earned designation in the speaking profession, held by less than 12% of professional speakers worldwide.

She has served in several capacities for the National Speakers Association, where she learned to grow her speaking business.  She loves living in Las Vegas and serves on the board of The Village Of Hope, an after school program for underprivileged kids.

When not delivering upbeat motivating programs for audiences across the country, Marilyn hosts an annual leadership retreat in Paris, France with her French husband Yves de Boisredon.
