I speak at the intersection of personal and professional development. Because if you want to grow in your career, a lot of the required work is an inside job.
I give keynote talks about feel-good work at high-profile national and international conferences and events. I do talks for leaders, students, entrepreneurs, employee groups, and gatherings of good humans.
I've served up straight-talking career advice at places like Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, Fortune, and Fast Company. And each month, my career advice is pumped into 30 million homes across North America.
Events I've spoken at have been organized and sponsored by large corporations, including PWC, IBM, Investors Group, UPS, Scotiabank, CPA, Telus, and also by large national and international associations, including the Academy of Management, Organizational Behavior Teaching Society for Management Educators, Administrative Sciences Association, Nordic Council of Ministers, and the Society for Industrial Organizational Psychology.
My speaking rate starts at $5,000.
"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!"
Chief Speaker Curator, IBM Global Entrepreneur Day
"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!"

"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."

“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!”

"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."
Panelist, SociaLIGHT Conference
“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!”

“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.

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.”
