"We are so grateful for the training we received from Sarah. It was obvious to see that our staff were engaged with the material, and were able to apply it to their work days. It was just wonderful to see and experience the connection amongst colleagues."
Neil Dickens

"Interesting, relevant and engaging. Sarah’s personality made her insights all the more relatable."
Nicole McKenzie

Client Services, AlayaCare 

"Sarah’s high-energy, engaging Keynote speech was the perfect way to kick off this year’s DeGroote Interprofessional Health Leadership Conference (DIHLC)! She has a unique ability to connect with the audience even virtually and her talk “The FROG Effect” about recognizing greatness in others, created a significant impact with our audience full of graduate students and healthcare professionals. She has a rare combination of entertainment value that will keep you on the edge of your seat; high energy to keep attendees engaged and by the end of her talk you will feel like you have been friends with her for years. I could not recommend Sarah more for any event or speaking engagement you may need!"
Adrian Trevino

Former Conference Chair, National Amtelco Equipment Organization

"Sarah was just above and beyond. Our association has existed for well over 30 years. We have had many keynote speakers over that time at our annual conferences. Sarah has certainly been the most anthropological speaker we have had. She invested so much time and energy into our group to understand us and our industry. Speaking to our group can sometimes be a challenge for speakers. However, Sarah was able to deliver a talk that was not only engaging but relevant!"
Linda Oslip

Executive Director, Canadian Call Management Association (CAM-X)

"We cannot thank you enough for helping to make our Virtual Conference a great success. Your perspective, insight and intelligence shone through, making this an exceptional and interactive session for our audience! PS - LOVED working with you and looking forward to working with you in person in the future!!!"
Thomas Schenk

"We jumped at the chance to be the sponsor of Sarah’s keynote on recognition. Not only is it aligned to our product, we believe we had more folks visit our booth because they left her session motivated and ready to bring recognition deeper into their organizations. It really showed that she did her homework to get to know the industry. We definitely would sponsor Sarah again."
