Welcome to Business Innovators Magazine…Please introduce yourself and a brief thumbnail sketch of your background.
SH: Hello my name is Sherri Henley, having been raised in a Pastor’s home, I quickly became equipped with tools to harness the power of an audience at a very young age. From singing to speaking, leading to the following; I adopted an acumen applicable to business…found first through ministry. Now, as speaker, author, and trainer…I often find myself composing and implementing ideas based on the value system of integrity which I was exposed to as a child.
