Our leadership team brought Sarah on to help us prepare multiple presentations for an annual conference. I quickly saw that Sarah has a rare and well-developed gift for helping leaders discover the heart of what they need to communicate, and guiding them to deliver the message with impact. Her insights on both how to structure content and how to deliver the message are spot on. Best of all, she has the right presence and approach to work with all levels of leadership – her approach is direct, motivating and warm.

Her ideas were both innovative and insightful. She really understands how to give a speech that delivers results for you and your audience. I highly recommend Sarah, especially to those wanting to take their professional speaking skills to the next level. She is a pleasure to work with.

Since Sarah began working with us, several employees mentioned to me that they have noticed significant positive change in the quality of our all staff presentations. The speakers speak with increased confidence and skill, and their presentations are livelier, clearer – and much more compelling. Sarah has done a great job.

Sarah is a superb coach. She sharpened my speaking skills considerably, covering everything from content and organization to how to connect with an audience and leave listeners with a clear take-home message. She doesn’t hesitate to offer tough love when needed, but her critiques are thoughtful and constructive. What’s more, her enthusiasm is contagious. I recommend her highly.
