Ross Page Tom International & International Speaker
“I’ve seen Sarah present to large audiences on several occasions and each time I am reminded of the power of subtlety. I would describe Sarah as a rubber mallet – she hits hard but you don’t realise it until it’s had an enormous effect on you. She comfortably and assertively leads her audience from one major learning point to another – not only a masterful presenter but a professional learning facilitator.”
Susan Fleet, MD Lea Graham Associates

Eamon Hourigan, Founder Surfpixels Digital Media
“I was very fortunate to hear Sarah give a lecture at a recent Brighton Chamber of Commerce meeting. I would like to say I was very, very impressed as was a fairly large group of local business people. 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
Sharon Miller, Event Organiser Mayor’s Charities
“I am delighted to recommend Sarah as an excellent and highly motivational speaker. Sarah kindly accepted my invitation to be the guest speaker at a charity lunch and spoke passionately about her work and vision for the young generation of today. She is a leader in her field.”
Kelly O’Haire, Commercial Director Worthing Rugby Club (230 for Ladies Day)
“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!”
Don Elwick, Brighton Media Centre
“I wanted to acknowledge the way your presentation touched on some really important issues which are becoming more and more central to where business is heading. These areas are not normally spoken, or recognised – even like ‘where is the heart of your business, what is it for, how does that connect to the people who are your staff and your customers?’ All those are not featured in the traditional Annual Report approach as having value or relevance.
So your eloquence in putting it out there, in a way that just about connected with everyone in the seminar, was wonderful!”
Paul Hopwood, MD Paul Hopwood Consulting Limited
“Sarah has a special gift. Her insights into the human side of our world are profound. She is completely central to the success of our family life (we have been married since 1984!) and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who needs to get their life on the right road. She is a natural coach, filled with intuition, knowledge and a deep sense of what is right.”
Keiron Northmore, MD Greenlight Cyber Security
“I met Sarah earlier this year and employed her to co-present a number of business videos. Sarah’s enthusiasm, professionalism and intelligence resulted in a series of brilliant films which will aid my business enormously. I’ve attended one of Sarah’s workshops and was very impressed by her passion and knowledge. Lastly, as a startup business Sarah has been incredibly supportive and I’d like to thank her for that support, thanks Sarah!”
Paulina Sygulska Tenner, Director GrantTree
“I recently participated in a conference at Excel Exhibition Centre in London where Sarah was Master of Ceremonies. I was thoroughly impressed with her energy, professionalism and excellent time keeping. Sarah highlighted key points made by the speaker after every talk and made the event both enjoyable and memorable. She is one of the best Emcee’s I have come across.”
Nigel Patrick, MD Tactical Recruiter
“I just wanted to thank you for another excellent training day yesterday on the subject, ‘Speak More, Earn More’.
I came away feeling inspired and with huge confidence in my abilities and in particular was very pleasantly surprised with the way I came across on the videos. The techniques you taught us will stand me in very good stead as I launch my new training business and any success I have will be very much down to what you have taught me, not just recently, but over the years.”
