"Do it! The workshop is fun, engaging, and incredibly useful. Cheryl is an extremely engaging speaker- not one second of the workshop was boring!"
"Thank you Cheryl for putting these sessions together for us. We have gotten a lot of positive feedback from the learnings and we’ll likely be using the frameworks and techniques in a number of our projects to come. "
"Thank you! That was really interesting, entertaining, unexpected, got me thinking. Onwards to the (next) final frontier!"
"The exercises were the best of all other masterclasses I visited because it integrated MURAL. I really liked your lively style of talking. It was very refreshing compared to the other speakers. And the good examples from your experience about how hard certain things were, like thinking about the transitions."
"Having my mind blown by @funnygodmother with her deep understanding of multimodality and models for #interactivity. Her book is now on my reading list. Amazing speaker at our internal #WomeninTeams conference #Boost21"
"Gave us concrete examples of real world items she worked on and they ran into and solved issues and showed us how to think and plan through diagramming a skill using the Mural board. That set up was great!"
