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.

A fabulous, inspirational exhibit!! Thank you for showing natural beauty!!
Our 10 year old daughter attended the girls conference. She enjoyed it so much and it made such an impact on her! Ever since she has been talking about self esteem and body image.
Thank you, Cheryl-Ann for a wonderful experience today – for your insightful ways and for making learning so much fun!!
initially, it was uncertain if the length of the workshop would need to be reduced as many of our youth at our facility have a limited attention span. However, the youth remained engaged, interested for 2.5 hours and voiced positive comments regarding the workshop; this speaks volumes regarding the quality of the workshop provided by Ms. Webster offered.
Let me just start by saying that your show has touched me, your work is beautiful and the statement that you are making truly wonderful. What you are doing is so extremely powerful.
I feel prouder to be a woman and to see others different, but like myself. The living body.
Amazing!! We need to learn to accept ourselves no matter what age or size or shape. Live our lives and enjoy each day since each day is a gift.
What a great presentation Cheryl-Ann did for our staff meeting…I think one of the greatest comments came from one of our staff for whom life has not always been fair, it was like the sun was shining – just for us that day!
Incredible. Absolutely amazing. I’m so happy this empowering exhibit is at the CNE.
I find your confident speaking skills and superb visual presentation irresistible to an audience while your thought provoking asides and anecdotes keep the active mind on its toes.
I brought my daughters 5 & 11. Thank you for helping me teach them the value of self-worth in such a beautiful way.
Beautiful! I haven’t been moved so profoundly in a very long time – Thank You for a wonderful experience.
An amazing and self-affirming display. Thank-You!
When I found myself in a transition point in my life Cheryl-Ann was the person I reached out to. Her sound advice, coaching and perspectives have empowered me and enabled me to take on the challenges and opportunities I’ve faced with strength, a positive outlook and resilience.
I truly appreciate your speech and your workshop, and what you SAID today has had a great impact on how I FEEL and definitely will direct what I DO in the future of my work and my life.
Her entertaining and informative workshop helped us understand, as parents and adults working with youth, the impact that our words and actions can have on young people and their choices.
Very touching…a breath of fresh air.
Great idea and investment in awareness about women.
I’m really glad I participated in this workshop. I now appreciate my big beautiful body. I recommend this amazing workshop to any timid, proud, big or little women. It makes you feel good about yourself and you have fun in the process!
For the past two years, your workshop on Body Image/Self-Esteem at the Power of Being a Girl Conference has received the highest ratings with both girls and teachers in attendance. They find your style honest, engaging and humourous.
Just wanted to congratulate on a truly moving show. Your exhibit is a wonderful celebration of the female form. I loved it.
Your intense work has touched my heart and soul. Thank you for your amazing gift.
What an awesome exhibit. Thank-You, Cheryl-Ann for showing women in ALL their unique beauty.
Thank you so much for this inspirational, healing interlude. A place to let women’s hearts sing and dance.
I would recommend Cheryl-Ann’s presentation to any group looking for a socially conscious, spirited, and enthusiastic speaker.
It’s an amazing project, it helped alot of people who needed self confidence.
…she is engaging, passionate, funny and persuasive…
Beautiful, Amazing, Breathtaking. I am overcome by emotion. Tears of joy, tears of sadness. I have felt 120 different emotions.
I have just read ‘The Book’ from cover to cover absorbing every word.
What an incredible accomplishment! To see the essence of real women with the stories of their lives, loves and inspirations.
