Sarah is personable, well-spoken and educated on her topics. She hits it home and keeps it real.

Very informative, great voice, great message and great educator. Very personable and passionate about material taught. My only complaint is that I want to know more.

Sarah was a really engaging speaker with valuable, easy to implement information and strategies to share.

Why Sarah Artis?

Keeps It Real

Sarah Artis speaks from the heart. She’s direct, she’s honest, and she can connect with people from all walks of life. Sarah doesn’t hide her mistakes or shy away from talking about the nitty, gritty, embarrassing moments and details of her life and work. Instead she uses this material to help her audience feel comfortable, laugh and learn.

Intimate & Interactive

Sarah prefers to speak to smaller groups, so she can interact with the people she’s talking to. As part of her presentations, she aims to facilitate discussions among audience members. If there’s time, she also includes exercises which allow participants to self-reflect about the material they are learning. You’ll leave understanding how the material pertains to your own life, organization and career, and how to put it into action immediately. 

Professional & Personal

Sarah’s personal and professional lives are blended, and she finds that much of what she learns in her work applies to her personal life and vice versa. So Sarah’s talks mix stories, philosophies and lessons from both her work and life experiences.
