“Mrs Hopwood is a person of great personal character. She runs her life according to high moral principles and her active christianity permeates all that she does. She will rightly present her viewpoint but is a good listener and tolerant of the feelings of other. She made a major contribution to this school to which we are very grateful.”

Sarah held our attention throughout and the talk was delivered in a thoughtful concise manner with plenty of anecdotes, that had a lot of people almost spellbound. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending Sarah should you require a Professional Speaker, you couldn’t do better.”
Paul Curry Sponsorship Director at PMW Communications
I met Sarah in May 2008 and engaged her to assist me launch a new client’s business at a club in Leicester Square the following month. The business was “Easy Roommate”, which brings together people searching for accommodation with those with properties to rent in a speed dating type scenario.
Sarah spoke for twenty minutes on the subject of Body Language, advising the attendees what to look for when meeting people for the first time, to judge whether they are telling the truth about themselves – an important factor when they were considering entering into such an important contract.
Sarah was entertaining, informative and professional in delivering her speech and the evening’s event resulted in a full-page article in the Saturday Telegraph. The fact that we are still in contact, years on, speaks volumes – I am happy to recommend Sarah, she is a true professional.

“Sarah wowed the audience at our recent charity event. She was able to get the serious message of the day across and also inject lots of fun and warmth into every aspect – expertly walking that fine line between light and shade. We certainly would not have raised as much money as we did without her and I cannot recommend her enough – thank you Sarah!”
