Virtual & In Person Workshops With Sarah Doody
My live and online workshops provide hands-on skills & strategies that teams and individuals can apply to their roles and careers immediately.
I’ve been speaking since 2012 and I take it seriously! Whether you’re putting on a conference or in house event, your attendees deserve an awesome experience.
A talk or workshop is a product, and I design every talk and workshop with the attendee experience in mind.
Faced with the challenge of fading attention spans, everything I do is designed to keep the audience engaged. I weave together storytelling, case studies, process, inspiration and passion with the goal of driving people to action.
I am available for talks and workshops worldwide whether in person or online.
