Cherie Eilertsen, International Keynote Speaker, Author, Master Certified Executive, Business & Sales Coach, was recently selected as Top Global Impact Speaker of the Decade by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for her outstanding leadership, dedication, and commitment to professional speaking. 

While membership in the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) is an honor, being chosen as the Top Global Impact Speaker comes with significant meaning, adoration, and respect. This member motivates others, expresses thanks, brings people together, and makes them feel connected. She has shown new leadership methods, pushed others to achievement, and ensured that people's views are heard. Ms. Eilertsen is an exceptional performer in her industry. She is enthusiastic about her profession and has high standards and ethics in all she does. The IAOTP will recognize her for her achievement at their Annual Awards Gala being held at the Plaza Hotel NYC in December 2023.

Cherie has been an influential international speaker for over 30 years; it's safe to say that she's a pro at what she does. She has been a vibrant, results-oriented leader her whole professional life. Cherie is a well-known business leader in South Africa, having educated and coached tens of thousands of people at some of the country's most well-known companies. Some of the most prestigious businesses in the world are among her clients. 

Cherie's Sales Workshops, Power Speakers Academy, Keynote Presentations, and International Company Programs provide business owners, delegates, and professionals with direction and inspiration. Cherie also provides internationally competitive programs with a focus on the future for organizations and business people, using the skills and methods she has developed as a global speaker and business coach.

Cherie has extensive experience with executive coaching, leadership development, entrepreneurship, public speaking, management consulting, strategy, training, coaching, personal development, marketing, team building, consulting, business strategy, employee training, recruiting, marketing strategy, negotiation, and executive development. 

Before embarking on her professional career path, Cherie studied teaching and served as a lecturer for highly gifted school leavers. She is a former TV Presenter and also consulted to South Africa’s largest banks, as a professional speaker and trainer. She addressed tens of thousands of delegates during that consultancy.

Her impressive repertoire of previous roles involves Cherie launching a property investment company that grew to almost 200 member offices throughout South Africa. Cherie was also selected from a worldwide stable of speakers to present the “Across the Millennium Predictive Study” across the United Kingdom & commissioned by the UK financial service industry under the IIB, as part of their millennium celebrations.

Furthermore, Cherie is the author of several real estate marketing books. As a professional speaker she has worked globally across almost every industry and has shared the stage with Michael Douglas, Mel Gibson, Dr Phil, Brooke Shields, Charlie Sheen, Jessica Simpson, and a former President of South Africa. Cherie resumed her international travels after Covid, when she and her business partner Ethan Donati launched a business called Iconic Speaker, aimed at raising up speakers all over the world, and helping others to find their voices. Cherie’s speaking engagements have taken her to the UK, Australia, Singapore and America in 2022. Together with Ethan,  her travel calendar is already booked to take Iconic Speaker to several new countries during 2023.

Throughout her illustrious career, Cherie has received many awards, accolades and was recognized worldwide for her expertise as a professional speaker. This year she graced the front cover of TIP (Top Industry Professionals) Magazine and was selected to have a chapter dedicated to her in the Top 50 Fearless Leaders Publication being released end of April. She was honored as Top International Speaker of the Year and Empowered Woman of the Year for 2022 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) at the Annual Awards Gala held at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas where she was featured on the famous Planet Hollywood Billboard on the iconic Las Vegas Strip and was also featured on the famous Nasdaq Billboard in Times Square, NYC during Fashion Week. Cherie was included as a Who’s Who awardee in South Africa.

The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated “It is a privilege to have Cherie as a member of the IAOTP team. Aside from her obvious intelligence, her financial acumen is extraordinary, and her list of achievements is without parallel. Adding her to our group of business associates would be a huge boost. At last year's Awards Gala, we got to finally meet her in person. 

Looking back Cherie knows that her drive, excitement, and innovation were crucial to her success, as was her dedication to her ultimate goal of assisting entrepreneurs and businesses in reaching their full potential. She values her time away from the office spent with loved ones and seeing new places. It is planned that Cherie will continue to speak to audiences of company owners throughout the world at sold-out events, seminars, online events and will provide online coaching from wherever she is in the world.
