“Sheila recently led a 10-week global initiative to help our employees navigate change and transitions as well as their resilience levels, ahead of a big merger - a huge engagement! From day 1 Sheila was a dream to work with. Throughout, she's always been extremely responsive and now that we have just finished the program, I have received numerous e-mails from employees praising her style and empathy and raving about their personal benefits from having had the opportunity to participate. Sheila was also really flexible with any and all of our requests - including the fact we wanted sessions that were inclusive to all global time zones - meaning she ran some sessions in the middle of the night her time to cater for our APAC population. She not only talks the talk, but she walks the walk! Her commitment and passion for what she does shines through I'd recommend her to any organization that is serious about their employee’s wellbeing and wants to invest in giving them time to connect with themselves so they can be at their best. We'll certainly be using her again and I'm already in talks with Sheila about our next collaboration! "

" How inspirational! Thanks for your powerful commitment to our women veterans in this forum. That final comment from one of the participants about getting more out of this hour than her last 3 years of therapy was striking. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to prepare with you. On behalf of so many of us at Comcast, thank you for all the time you gave." -Jessica Gappa, Comcast,

"We have just concluded our Safety Summit and the event could not have been more fulfilling. Sheila was engaging, interactive, motivational, and most importantly, authentic in her delivery. As the Director of Safety, Security and Environment, I have been influencing our leadership team to shift our culture from Proactive to the Resilient model, where safety is a way of life in everything the organization does, and our collective voices are heard. Our momentum forward has been a collective effort and we were anxiously seeking for an inspirational speaker to start the conversation in our annual Safety Summit.
In our search for a dynamic and inspiring speaker, we were introduced to Sheila. Our planning committee understood from our first conversation with Sheila that she was a perfect fit to carry our resilience message to our 3600+ employees across North America. Our experience was very positive through the entire event planning process. Sheila was incredibly attentive to our vision and demonstrated a high-level of interest to ensure her message would resonate well with our diverse culture. Participant testimonials have been incredibly positive with many emotionally moved from the experience. Sheila has given our organization a springboard into our resiliency journey, and she has personally influenced, and altered, the lives of many of our employees. Well done, Sheila!"

It was exciting to kick off our Wellness Wednesdays workplace well-being series today in honor of #WorldHealthDay. I felt very inspired and motivated by our guest speaker Sheila Robinson-Kiss who offered tips on sustaining your mental health during challenging times. As Sheila said, when you practice self-care, it really pays dividends. And we should all embrace our worth and make a commitment to do little things to lift us up everyday. Thank you Sheila for these words of wisdom and to all my Teva colleagues who participated in this session – I hope there will be a few more ‘zebras’ around the office soon

" Working with Sheila was absolutely amazing! Not only is she personable and inspiring, but she brings such a positive energy to everyone she is around. Having her speak at our event for
legal professionals was a perfect way to kick off the final day of the event. She had the entire audience engaged and involved
(this is the first time we have introduced a workshop-type of session to this group and it went even better than expected). Sheila went above and beyond to provide a fulfilling experience for our attendees, from creating marketing-specific materials prior to the event, to providing the strategy planning worksheet during the session, and followed up with a toolkit of thoughtful resources for
our audience to continue combatting stress navigation. Her story inspired the audience and left them thinking about what's next!
I would be happy to work with Sheila again in the future."
