Woman Up Keynote

 

Sheri Sullivan of EY

Where would you go if you wanted to change the world?

In Sheri’s case it was joining the dynamic ranks of Ernst and Young, a company dedicated to the people experience. She actively lives their creed “that big things start small” and we’re thrilled to have her sharing powerful knowledge within our small but mighty community of Woman Up attendees.

We couldn’t have identified a better person to kick off our full day of multi-generational knowledge in an engaging and impactful manner.

Sheri will come armed with detailed accounts of our status in the workplace, data and the trends that shape us. It’s a lot easier for us to “Woman Up” when we can separate fact from fiction. The whole day will be postured around providing real life tools that can advance women at all levels of their professional journey.

Sheri, who earned her Executive MBA from the University at Buffalo in 2001, is a partner and one of the leaders in the Ernst & Young People Advisory Services Global Payroll Practice. She has over 17 years of experience and is considered one of the global pioneers in her field.

At Ernst & Young, Sullivan advises clients on building and implementing Global HR and Payroll Strategies, leverages technology to provide a better employee/manager experience, tighter controls, greater agility, clear visibility, sustainable back-ups all while reducing cost and integrating into the larger HR or Finance delivery strategy.

Prior to joining Ernst & Young, Sheri built and led the Global Payroll Transformation Business at The Hackett Group, was a Senior Executive with CloudPay, was the CEO of a mid-sized global HR and Payroll BPO company, Intercomp Global Services and a Director at Paychex.

She has traveled, lived and worked in over 57 countries, loves spending time with her husband, three children and 2 dogs, frequently entertains (when not traveling) and lives to dance.
