AGL 139: Alexa is Stealing Your Job with Rhonda Scarf

About Rhonda

Alexa is Stealing Your JobInsightful … humorous … entertaining … even contagious … words that are often used to describe Rhonda Scharf. A speaker with the uncanny ability to look at the normal and see something quite different.

Rhonda is a Professional Speaker and member of the Canadian Speaking Hall of Fame, Trainer and Author, based in Ottawa Canada. She has spoken to tens of thousands of people in dozens of different countries.

She knows how to make you laugh and she knows how to get you to question why you do what you do. Her natural warmth and sincerity are balanced by a healthy sense of the absurd, a combination that is useful in any situation.

Rhonda has written eight books, with her latest “Alexa is Stealing her Job” and her best-seller “Common Sense is NOT Common Practice” still available.

Rhonda’s professional speaking career began at age two… when her mother would offer her 25 cents to be quiet for five minutes!
