Whether writing features or editing, Sheila has exercised exceptional professionalism, accomplishing high-quality work on time and within budget. Sheila treats our feature stories like an insider, observant of and attentive to GGU Law's culture and language, drawing out key points with linguistic nuance and grace. My communication with her has been seamless. I have been so pleased with her work, I have recommended her to colleagues in the high-tech sector. They, too, have been thrilled with her work and have recommended her to others. Sheila is a delight to work with, and I give her my highest recommendation.”

"I've known Sheila Chandrasekhar for 17 years, and during that time she has impressed me as an accomplished communicator; an energetic, talented writer; a great leader and organizer; and a wonderful human being. 

Most recently, Sheila served on the SF IABC board as co-director of the chapter's "Networking Nine" program—an intimate monthly dinner event for senior-level communicators. She and her co-director moved the program to new heights and were successful in developing, refining and embedding effective, repeatable processes to make the Net Nine events shine every time. I was so pleased to have her working with me on the board and benefited greatly from her skill and passion. 

Sheila now works with the programs team developing, managing and leading educational programs for members. Again, her participation and contributions are proving invaluable

I am so pleased to recommend Sheila. She's a remarkable, enthusiastic, uber-talented—and I dare say brilliant—communicator. I feel fortunate to know her and count her among my closest colleagues and friends.”

—Christopher Johnson, Communication Manager

“I first met Sheila through our volunteer roles on the Board of Directors for the San Francisco chapter of the IABC. She is a professional communicator of the highest order, and I genuinely enjoy working with her on our chapter's premier networking event, Networking Nine. Sheila is the perfect co-Director: creative, reliable, super-organized, and possessing that rare ability to shine in any professional situation—with new members and seasoned executives alike! If your communication project requires strategy, diplomacy, and an absolute focus on results, Sheila should be first on your list."

"Within the first few days of working with Sheila, I knew I had a gem of a writer: she's a detail-oriented person, committed to listening to and establishing the needs of her client first, then tackling the business of molding an unfinished work into a polished piece of publishable writing. While she handily assisted us with setting up our first "official" style guide and copyedited four articles for our third journal issue of the year, compliments streamed in from the Editor-in-Chief, as well as EACH corresponding author thanking her for her sharp attention to detail and context, which improved the quality of each manuscript. Needless to say, I look forward to continuing our working relationship—Sheila's dedication and skill are tops."

"Trusted consultant, instructional designer, communicator and content developer at APL, Sheila worked with many different departments within the organization. She is comfortable interviewing diverse subject matter experts, such as IT, Operations, Sales, etc. to develop content appropriate for discrete audiences. She takes initiative, understands organizational dynamics, thinks strategically and is a quick study. She excels at structuring information and using multi-media to educate learners in the best way. Sheila wrote newsletter articles, enterprise e-mail blasts for roll-outs, and intranet web content. I hired her multiple times and would do so again. A consummate professional, Sheila is also a real joy to work with. I highly recommend Sheila Chandrasekhar."
