Climb Your Everest.

I work with organizations that want to develop highly productive teams, that deliver profit, performance and engagement.

I will share my stories, both daunting and humorous, imparting leadership tools as I take you up the mountain with me. You can choose from a few different presentations which I created for all kinds of groups. As an avid mountain climber, avalanche survivor, global citizen, author, TEDx speaker, college professor, electrical engineer, PhD in Leadership and Change, and equality advocate, I would love to speak to your group!

“Her story is captivating, and her presentation keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. It’s so inspirational that you are forced to quickly assess what you’re capable of and try to figure out, as Sara says, how to “Climb your Everest” in life.”
“Our entire company was inspired by her commitment and passion to help those less fortunate and to push yourself beyond your limits. I heard several employees comment that she was our favorite speaker thus far.”
“Somehow she managed to play on the whole emotional scale, and I was empowered, inspired, sad, and proud. It is safe to say that not one single person in the room was left unmoved.”
Thank you so much for the incredibly inspiring and motivational talk! I know it’s difficult to gauge engagement during virtual settings, but we’ve already received many positive remarks and survey responses about the talk. We are all in awe of your amazing story!

“Sara’s story is compelling and inspiring.  It is enhanced by her ability as a storyteller to convey the joy and heartbreak of her journey. Sara is an exceptional speaker that makes her story come alive for her audience. I would recommend her highly to business leaders, schools, and community groups. Sara leaves the audience with the desire to become engaged in the world.”

“The passion and the dedication that came from her story not only moved our salesforce, but we saw productivity go up by over 25% throughout the rest of the fiscal year. Her personal, moral, and spiritual journey can apply to any group of individuals and any organization looking to be inspired, motivated, or looking for a new direction in both their personal life and their professional life. To think that somebody went through this, and survived it, and now we are all able to benefit from her words is a tremendous opportunity to take advantage of.”
