Sharyn has been speaking since 1991 when her mentor took her to a Lion’s Club meeting and then informed her that she was the guest speaker. Rather than offend her mentor, she took the podium and even though Sharyn doesn’t remember the talk, within a year, she received a great compliment. One of the attendees had seen her months before and told Sharyn “If I hadn’t heard you speak I would have had to give up my business and take a job.”
From that point on Ms. Abbott was hooked. She believes it is an amazing privilege to be able to affect people in a positive nature through public speaking.
