Sherré DeMao is founder, President/CEO, and Strategy Maestro of BizGrowth Inc., a full-service training, strategy, process improvement and IP development firm she established in 1984. BizGrowth Inc. is dedicated to helping entrepreneurial companies grow through next-level thinking and ideas to synergize operations and marketing for value-building and market building results. A published author, Sherré's books have received rave national reviews for long-lasting value and insight. Her book entitled, “50 Marketing Secrets of Growth Companies in Down Economic Times," released in November of 2011, was touted as "a book small business marketers will refer to time and time again." Her book, Me, Myself & Inc., released in 2010, also acclaimed as a Top Shelf Pick for business, caught the attention of Cognella Publishing, resulting in Chapter 2, entitled "Me, Myself and Inc" in the university text book, Smart Start-Up Management. Her Dream Wide Awake workbook was released globally in February 2020. She is also currently working on her fourth book, The Prosperity Quotient, about best practices in sustainable, value-building, legacy growth in a business. Her firm has received more than 50 awards locally, nationally and internationally. In 2004, the National Republican Congressional Committee honored her with a National Leadership Award for her small business advocacy. In 2006, Sherré co-authored a white paper on federal government contracting policies. The paper included 34 recommendations to federal agencies, which is attributed for influencing the SBA's launching of the Women-Owned Small Business Program in 2011. These efforts were among the reasons the U.S. Small Business Administration recognized Sherré in 2006 as a Small Business Woman Champion. In 2007, she was named among the 50 Most Enterprising Women in North America by Enterprising Women Magazine, and in 2015 received an international Consultancy Award from Corporate Vision magazine.
