Cheryl-Ann Webster, aka The Creative Speaker, transformed her life from a high-school dropout with no place to call home, and seemingly no prospects, to a university educated, award-winning artist, speaker and facilitator. Today she blends her passion for artistic expression, her deep interest in human dynamics, and her degree in communications to provide her clients with highly interactive, yet cringe-free, creative sessions. Her client base is diverse in age, gender and demographics but all have a common desire to better their own life and empower others.
Cheryl-Ann Webster is also the creator of the family-friendly Beautiful Women Project; an art installation that is accompanied by presentations promoting body confidence while raising awareness on the impact of body-shaming. Deemed a “revelation of truth” her Beautiful Women Project, has been showcased in 12 communities, with 70,000 visitors, viewing the exhibit and hearing the message of self-acceptance since 2006.
Explore – Express – Evolve
Each presentation Cheryl-Ann delivers is carefully designed to accommodate the agenda of the client and the needs of the audience. Her expertise encompasses intimate settings with survivors and therapists, to conferences with social workers and health-care providers, as well as auditoriums filled with students and educators.
Keynotes & ARTshops
45-90 minute Keynotes, either stand alone or are paired with a 2+ hour breakout session, where Cheryl-Ann delivers interactive workshops, or as she calls them – ARTshops. ARTshops provide an ideal platform, for experiential learning, for teams and individuals.
After graduating from the school of ‘Hard Knocks’ Cheryl-Ann discovered a love for learning. Now her list of accomplishments include a diploma in Art & Design, a degree in Culture & Communications, accreditaion with the International Coach Federation, and NLP Canada.
Beautiful Women Project
The foundation of the Project is 120 life-size clay sculptures, that Cheryl-Ann sculpted, of real women aged 19-91, each decorated to reflect an aspect of the women’s life journey. To accompany the art-work, Cheryl-Ann designs and delivers highly visual presentations crafted to suit the age, stage and gender of the audience.
Captivating and distinctly creative.

I wanted to aknowledge you for the your ability and courage to listen to and act on the wisdom that had inspired you to create this project.
This project is a blessing.
Truly inspiring, enlightening and beautiful. Something everyone should be aware of and something everyone should & could be touched by.
I feel more normal and pretty than I did before because of the talk and pictures today.
Very Spiritual and beautiful!
Bless you for realistically giving a true form of so many women-you are an inspiration to us all.
You have truly captured the spirit of each woman. Congratulations on your achievements.
This is a wonderful exhibit and I’m so glad that you agreed to be at the CNE and to share your creativity with us. Thanks also for taking the time to chat about the creative process.
Cheryl-Ann’s presentations at Carleton Place High School & Notre Dame Catholic High School were considered to be the best of the day involving over one hundred presentations and performances!
To the Principals and Vice Principals of Secondary Catholic Schools. You are encouraged to consider how the Beautiful Women Project might reinforce your own efforts with your students to address our culture’s distorted views of the female body.
Cheryl-Ann is an engaging and well-prepared presenter whose multimedia lecture highlighted the myriad messages society sends about physical appearance and how this information influences women’s self-worth.
Fabulous! True acceptance: knowing and loving ourselves.
Cheryl-Ann addressed a large group of female students with ease and candor… Our students were moved and inspired to a new level of understanding. We could not have asked for a better speaker.
Wow! I felt immediate acceptance of my own breasts and my build.
The staff remarked on the wonderful buzz of the intense discussion throughout the conference hall as students and teachers reached a new understanding around self-esteem. Your feedback rating was 96% approval for your full-day workshop! (Not bad at all for 400 students that were mandated to attend). Thank you!
This was an amazing experience. Often women feel pressured to fit in, and the little things that make us unique are seen as deformities. I know I did. Not any more.
Cheryl-Ann Webster’s Beautiful Women Project is an effective catalyst for generating discussion on body image, a topic which is relevant not only for women and girls, but increasingly for all of us.
If you have not heard Cheryl-Ann speak I highly encourage you to do so. It will make a major difference in your life. I have been speaking professionally for over two decades and I know a good speaker when I hear one. You are in for a real treat to hear Cheryl-Ann Webster!
I bought ‘The Book’ and it sits on top of my dresser beside my full size mirror and it continues to remind me everyday that I AM BEAUTIFUL!
Such an incredible display. A beautiful way to tell a story and send the proper message.
So unique. Real art with a message! Well worth my time. Thank you so much.
Thank you so much for this inspirational, healing interlude. A place to let women’s hearts sing and dance.
Your presentation had a positive impact on everyone. You spoke from the heart, celebrating the individual and your brought an added dimension to the discussion on body-image.
‘The Book’ is filled with artfully disguised wisdom. It has helped all the recipients for which I bought it as a gift: a psychcologist in the UK who specializes in treatment for women with eating disorders, a teenager with a medical problem, my two daughters and my son in law. It was much appreciated. Thank you.
My 4 yr old son loves his Beautiful Women colouring book! He loves the patterns, shapes and challenge of filling each page with beautiful colours. I love that he is learning by osmosis that beautiful women come in all different shapes and sizes, with their own fascinating and unique stories. A great lesson at any age!
In addition to favourable comments from the survey, several staff talked to me in person sharing how much they enjoyed your speech. So, a big THANK YOU for making our PD day this year so enjoyable and staff motivated to reach their best. On a very personal note – you are a great speaker and facilitator and it was a pleasure working with you!
This workshop offered me the opportunity to express my creativity through the emotional process with other women. It made me feel truly womanly. I am a woman and proud of it!
When I first met Cheryl-Ann I immediately felt comfortable with her warm sparkling personality. It didn’t take me long to trust her and with her support I felt empowered to be the best version of me.
Great idea and investment in awareness about women.
How wonderful that we can learn to accept our bodies as these women have it opens the door to my soul.
