Motivational Speaking

The entire team came away from the session feeling refreshed and enthusiastic and looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead. I would not hesitate in recommending Sarah to any institution, no matter how large or small!!

Sarah is the author of That Further Shore: how to turn your dreams into goals and make them reality. Her motivational talks empower audience members because, as one participant said “you made it ok to be where I am, and you showed me that no matter where I start from, I can move forward from here towards achieving my dreams.”

Sarah has lived and worked in Dublin, Milan, Paris, London and Cape Town and for the past 16 years contributed to Spencer Stuart's global success both as an Executive Search Consultant and in advising Boards and CEOs on their decisions around leaders and leadership teams.  

In 2015 Sarah achieved her childhood dream and was approved to compete in the equestrian sport of eventing under the Team Ireland flag for the first time.  She is now an accredited international eventing rider.  Sarah embodies determination, drive, ambition and life-long learning.

In 2017 Sarah received her MPhil in Executive Coaching from the University of Stellenbosch Business School.

She has been inspired to share these experiences through her book and motivational talks.  At the heart of her message are tools and techniques that have helped her to work at the highest levels of business and to achieve her sporting, professional and academic dreams.  "I don't claim to know all the answers, but I've invested a lot of time in understanding leadership, performance, objectives setting and the journey of personal change." says Sarah.  "This talk puts some of that knowledge into an entertaining story-based talk.  If participants walk away with one thing it's that changing your outcomes means changing what you do and change is hard.  We talk about that and about the tools that can help."
