“Everyone doesn't need to be an entrepreneur, but they need to think like one.”

Cheryl Mayberry McKissack



When you know more, do more. For over a decade I have challenged and motivated young entrepreneurs in the MBA program at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Business. As a former adjunct professor, I consistently shared my industry insider techniques and selling skills.  

In December I will continue my quest to motivate students by delivering the keynote address for the 2018 Northwestern University Kellogg School of Business Executive MBA Program commencement ceremony.   

Whether it is a commencement, conference, keynote, executive education or professional learning workshop, I appreciate the opportunity to engage large audiences with relevant information and insights on content built around entrepreneurship, leadership, diversity and inclusion, digital marketing and selling.

Growing up in a family that valued education and keeping trend with the learning community, I’m looking forward to broadening my reach to connect with lifelong learners through seminars and webinars. Topics that I look forward discussing live and online include raising capital, niche markets, how to use research, diversity and inclusion, growth strategies, digital strategies, board excellence, leadership and entrepreneurial selling.

I have been a featured guest speaker at a diverse set of organizations and institutions which include Northwestern/Kellogg, Crain’s, Willis Tower Watson Cornerstone Program, Northern Trust Dream Maker forum, Private Company Governance Summit, Financial Times Outstanding Director Exchange, Chicago Urban League, PRO2CEO and Prudential: Sustaining Success Summit, National Minority Supplier Development Council, ACG Global and the Women’s Leadership Forum.
