Sheryl Smail

PSheryl Smailivotal’s leader, Sheryl Smail has local, national and international credibility in her field and a reputation for achieving results.

It’s no wonder that repeat business and client referrals have been the backbone of Pivotal’s business.

I really enjoy the diversity of Pivotal’s clients and the projects they involve us with. One day I can be putting my mind to designing and facilitating a process that will enable the directors of a board to develop a long term strategy and the next I can be doing a mix of conflict resolution and training with members of a team that has become unproductive because of interpersonal dynamics. No one experience stands out as the highlight. I find it all incredibly satisfying – personally and professionally.” Sheryl Smail

Sheryl is well equipped to add value to Pivotal’s diverse client base.
