Sherry Darden

Sherry Darden is often called “The Business Plan Lady” because she has personally coached and trained thousands of entrepreneurs to business success. But it hasn’t always been that way. Sherry knows what it’s like to struggle too. She’s been an employee, manager, entrepreneur, and salesperson. She knows what it’s like to hear both the words “nice job” as well as the dreaded “you’re fired.” She’s the real deal and the advice, tips, and techniques she shares from the podium are worlds away from feel-good fluff.

Sherry delivers meaty presentations that draw on her experiences as far back as her very first job as a tax preparer at H&R Block’s world headquarters in Kansas City. She doesn’t pull any punches when discussing her own entrepreneurial ventures and what she’s learned. Plus, on top of an idea-rich presentation, Sherry greets her audiences with a strong stage presence, a pleasing presentation style, and a bright smile that is her trademark.

If you are looking for someone who can kick things up a notch in your company, someone who will recharge employees’ mental batteries and get them excited about their jobs, invite Sherry Darden to your next in-service training event or retreat. She is a dynamo with important messages to share on today’s business topics.

Mission Statement
My passion is to empower clients and audiences with new ideas and skills to improve their quality of life both in the workplace and at home. I love seeing the light bulb turn on! Regardless of the subject, I make sure they get it in a way they can relate to and without talking over their heads. “I build you up without talking down. That’s how I coach, that’s how I train.”
