Theresa Laurico

“Sarah is a bold, engaging and authentic speaker. She spoke at both the IBM Global Entrepreneur Day and at the national SociaLIGHT Conference and I highly recommend her. Her energy, wisdom and insight was valuable for all the delegates and their ongoing success. Sarah is a woman who walks her talk. Her courage, commitment and impact is an example to leaders who genuinely seek to follow the beat of their own song and heart!”

Theresa Laurico – Chief Speaker Curator, IBM Global Entrepreneur Day

Founder, SociaLIGHT Conference


“Insightful, empathetic, and hilarious, Sarah’s workshop created a safe space for both established and aspiring entrepreneurs to confront uncomfortable questions about which business goals are worth pursuing and which to ditch. She offered an easily applicable framework, blending psychology, intuition, and business sense. Sarah immediately connected with the audience sharing anecdotes from her own experience that had the room laughing, reflecting, and asking lots of questions. After following Sarah online and devouring her Careergasm book, it was a joy to experience her in person! ”

Emily Rose Antflick, Founder + Chief Community Cultivator, Shecosystem Coworking + Wellness


Bobby Umar“Sarah spoke at our DYPB – Discover Your Personal Brand Conference with great success and flair. She clearly has a passion for her work, an engagement style that resonated with many delegates and was one of our most popular speakers. The attendees loved her message of brazen authenticity in business and her interactive exercises got attendees excited and talking to each other. There was a lineup of people eager to speak to her after the talk, which demonstrated her impact. I personally can’t wait to collaborate with her again.”

Lisa Colalillo“I’m blown away and inspired by how you are just rocking it in your arena and the example you offer to all women in business that dreams are absolutely achievable. Women like you give light so that more and more of us can step into our own lights.”

David Cohen“Sarah is a true professional, she gives freely of herself, her time and is a positive spirit to have at any event. I love working with Sarah, she’s fun, bright and bold and that to me is what differentiates her from anyone else!”

David Cohen – Speaking Curator, National Job Fair and Training Expo

Author, coach, facilitator and producer/host of Small Business Big Ideas Show


LianneKrakauer“Sarah’s presentation on how to find your authentic voice to write content for your business was spot on for our group of coaches and therapists. As coaches, we tend to shy away from self-promotion and marketing, and Sarah’s down to earth and engaging style put us all immediately at ease. Within minutes she had us experimenting with a new technique for developing our own personal brand and the room was filled with laughter and an excited buzz as we learned how to write and be real.  I would highly recommend Sarah as a speaker and coach for any entrepreneur who is looking to develop their voice online or in person.  She walks the talk!”

Lianne Krakauer – Co-organizer and Speaking Curator, Tikkato

Career and Leadership Coach


“Sarah spoke to Fanshawe College students and graduates as the keynote at our annual IGNITE Student Career Conference.  Her engaging, and uplifting presentation peppered with concrete tips and tools for career success was by all accounts valuable and meaningful for the participants.  Sarah provided students with lots of time for dialogue and questions and responded to their enquiries with heart and humor. They left with ‘real life” examples of how determination, being true to yourself and building support systems can equip you with a recipe for career success.  Thank you Sarah!”

Darlene O’Neill, Senior Manager, Employment and Student Entrepreneurial Services, Fanshawe College


“Sarah has a comedic, common sense approach to career guidance. After seeing Sarah on stage I decided she must speak to Women in Biz Network members. We had a fabulous career circle for our members and we all walked away feeling more centered in career choices. I passionately recommend Sarah! Whether you are going through challenges at your present job, exploring new options or diving into entrepreneurship, Sarah’s wise words will help you find the clarity you seek.”
