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.

A game-changing creativity challenge with the talented and intuitive artist If you want to stretch, to think differently, to grow – she’s your girl!
Very moving and truthful.
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.
Thank you for sharing your artistic talent and wisdom of words.
The overwhelming response from the participants stated your presentation was the “best ever”! Your presentation and ‘hands-on’ activities where well received and extremely thought provoking.
Very beautiful, very inspiring and excellent way to make people specially women to accept the way they are. They are all beautiful.
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.
The presentation provided by Cheryl-Ann was captivating, and a distinctly creative way to promote positive body image…it was a powerful and positive encounter.
The message it has taught to so many is to love who you are. This is a beautiful thing and children, men and women can all learn from it!
Cheryl Ann Webster was a highly captivating speaker and held her audiences attention and interest throughout the entire day.
You have truly captured the spirit of each woman. Congratulations on your achievements.
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!
Amazing and unforgettable.
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.
Thank you for your inspiring exhibition!!! I loved it so much! As an artist myself, I was truly inspired by your work and words.
We found Cheryl-Ann’s presentation to be very informative, her message inspiring and her style engaging, effective and honest.
Cheryl-Ann’s ability to adjust her presentation according to the responses of her audience were major factors in our decision to choose her over another speaker that we had considered for our conference.
