President of the Stanford Women’s Network UK
As the president of the newly formed alumni group, Stanford Women’s Network UK, I wanted a launch event that would attract alumnae and also create a splash, getting people enthused about the group. With this in mind, I asked Sarah to lead our launch event. I had seen her abilities as a one-to-one Life Coach and thought she would be the right person to help create a successful event. Sarah was fabulous. The topics were team-building, communication skills and making an impact, which she developed to fit the needs of the group after I described what we were looking for. She was engaging, approachable and charismatic. She enabled the group of women to get to know one another through skilled fostering of conversation and a set of inter-active exercises. She was approached by a number of the women who were interested in one-to-one coaching with Sarah because she demonstrated an ability to encourage growth in individuals and in groups. There has only been positive feedback about Sarah from the participants and with the buzz she has helped create, our group is off to a good start.
Talent Acquisition Manager
Thank you very much for the interview workshop. It was soooo useful! I took everything on board – did the prep and the practice, and amazingly it all came together! I came home to find a job offer waiting for me in my in-box! So now I have the happy dilemma of choosing between the contract and the permanent position.
Interview Skills Client
Thank you very much for all your help. You are very good at summing up and “wrapping up” precisely and concisely. I have really enjoyed your warm and generous help and guidance and will certainly take your advice and pointers on-board, not only for interviews but for every day.
Interview Skills Client
I have already had a chance to use what I learnt in a couple of interviews and I believe delivered a better quality presentation but more importantly I approached them with massively increased self confidence. These sessions are priceless for the job hunter. Sarah customises each session to allow you to focus in on what you need to practice or build confidence in. Sarah provides detailed feedback in a positive and constructive way. Self-confidence is one of the things that can take the biggest bashing during a period of redundancy and this session helped me to build mine up considerably.
PA to Head of Finance
Many thanks for your time I think it was two of the most productive hours of my life
First of all it was loads of fun! The feedback I received from Sarah was very incisive. The best thing it did was boost my self-confidence where presentations was concerned. This carried through to the presentation where using the techniques I was taught, I relaxed and was comfortable with the performance I gave. I am completely certain that anybody and everybody would benefit from time spent with Sarah.
People Development Manager, Vitacress
Thank you so much for the workshop today. The guys really enjoyed it and it was great to see them really engaging with each other. Thank you for putting the laughter back into the team.
It’s amazing how communicative confidence can spread to all aspects of the daily grind and I believe I’ve found ways to counter my nerves thanks to you. Once again thank you for everything, it’s now up to me and I feel very confident I can take on the challenge all the best to you.
MD Rowland & Associates Ltd.
Sarah brought a wealth of knowledge and expertise, the majority of which she introduced via relaxed and practical exercises. She was extremely professional yet had a warmth and personable style, which enabled my client to fully relax, open up and gain substantially from her input. I would thoroughly recommend Sarah and hope I will have the opportunity to involve her in my work with clients in the future.
Marketing and Communications Specialist
Do you have a pre-conceived idea about what a Life Coach should be? Or could be? I certainly did before I started working with Sarah but it was soon very clear to me that my views were far too narrow and misguided. Sarah’s gentle manner belies a razor sharp mind, whose incredible listening skills ensure that every single moment of your session is time well spent. Very well spent. Our sessions flew past but we packed a lot into each one. Sarah tunes into what you need and want; she gently guides you to draw your own conclusions so you are empowered to move towards what you want to achieve – in any area of your life – work, home, personal, professional. Our sessions were full of ‘aha’ moments, which provided pointers for future action but, above all, Sarah helped me to create a space and time where we could focus on what was important for me. It’s down to Sarah’s expertise and knowledge that even one hour can prove to be so beneficial. Sarah is a highly talented individual and I feel so lucky to have found her. I love working with her and I look forward to each session. My contact with her has helped me come out of a very deep hole with renewed determination and, most important of all, hope and optimism – emotions I had not felt for some time.
Learning and Development Manager
Sarah has worked with me twice through her interviewing services provided to Springboard to help professionals get back in to work. She first played a part for me in role play and was quick to understand the character and environment I needed her to simulate for me. She gave comprehensive feedback which built my confidence. The second time she showed great flexibility by moving to a coaching session. The coaching was very useful as I had a few career decisions to make. She has great interpersonal skills, asks open questions and keeps you on track. Really helped to focus my mind and concentrate on positive outcomes and actions. Professional, personable and versatile. Highly recommended.
Actress on the Film ‘Hunger Ford’ produced by Wildseed Studios
We were a group of non-professionals, the work with Sarah bonded us as a group by creating a safe, supportive space. Sarah made me feel completely at ease so that I could explore my character confidently and take full advantage of the rehearsal process. Sarah taught us skills needed to create convincing characters and tell an effective story. Time and time again I came away from her workshops and rehearsals feeling inspired by the techniques she used. A truly wonderful acting coach!
