With the advent of the internet our world has changed forever. Privacy, as we knew it, has gone and the way we trust has been transformed.

Customer behaviour and expectation has evolved, and to survive and thrive in business you must keep up.

Conference Speaker Sarah Pearce
  • Sarah and I have met twice in the space of 20 years on a professional level. Last weekend she re appeared as a barnstorming (flamboyantly energetic and successful) keynote presenter at a national conference I attended. Her presentation provided an informative and entertaining insight into the new world of technology, internet and electronic footprints. Thoroughly enjoyable. Looking Forward to seeing her energy levels in 20 years from now!

    Patrick Girvan
  • I just attended the 2nd Women in Telco and Technology facilitated by Sarah. Her style and insights were absolutely perfect for the event. Every insight she provided to delegates showed her level of experience, and talent for coaching, facilitating and growing people’s leadership. Excellent!

  • I had the pleasure of watching Sarah deliver a powerful presentation on the importance of having a strong online presence to a large group at the annual Early Childhood Council Conference. Complete with valuable lessons and relevant case studies, Sarah engaged her audience for the duration of the presentation with thought-provoking content and practical steps for managing your digital presence by utilising the power of social media. Informative, entertaining, and motivating – I can highly recommend Sarah as an excellent speaker.

  • We engaged Sarah to address our annual conference of childcare centre owners, managers and teaching staff. She had them enthralled, disturbed and captivated from the outset. A great and engaging presenter with very welcome take-home messages and practical advice. Loved it.
    Peter Reynolds, Chief Executive Officer of the Early Childhood Council
  • I engaged Sarah as a keynote speaker for my group again this year, this time at our annual Business Owner Symposium held in Queenstown. Sarah’s first session was on Resilience, the second was on Strategic Success. She had a huge and positive impact on the business owners, which was much appreciated. Thankyou Sarah!

    Mike Pero, Mike Pero Real Estate
  • Sarah has an incredible talent to capture an audience and hold that attention for the duration of her speaking engagements. She is dynamic and her natural enthusiasm for the industry is noticeable to anyone who listens to her. I would highly recommend booking Sarah for your next event.

    Anita Dobson, Real Estate Agent
  • Sarah was the most amazing Chair at our Women in Property Leadership Summit 2017! She kept speakers to time and fielded questions from the audience with a smooth confidence. At times when the audience weren’t forthcoming, she asked informed questions of the speakers herself. Most importantly she did an incredible job of summarising the two days in her own session at the end, & helped everyone construct action plans to take back to the office. I can’t recommend Sarah enough!!

    Emily Fornieri, Liquid Learning
  • As an event manager, I can tell you Sarah Pearce is a delight to deal with — the perfect professional you would want to have on your team. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to give their audience that Wow experience!

  • Fun, fabulous and on point, what more could one ask for! Sarah has the ability to inspire people to take action and make a positive change to their business. Highly recommend her.

    Shayne Thompson, National Training Manager Bayleys
  • Sarah was a valuable speaker at our annual Bayleys conference this year. She provided useful and relevant information about social media today, along with some handy tips and easily actionable steps. She is also very motivational in her style – which has already encouraged me to take action! I’ve since looked up her website and found that to be a great source of inspiration too, sparking some ideas of my own. Thank you Sarah!

    Larissa Lynch – Salesperson
  • Sarah’s presentation at our national conference was really interesting, entertaining…and scary! The scary part being that we should be very careful how our online lives are perceived by the public, and their interpretations about us from the things we post on our social and business sites. Thanks, Sarah, for the great information and some fantastic ideas: relevant to all of us, both personally and professionally.

    Robyn Brown, Salesperson
  • We had the pleasure of listening to Sarah speak at our Bayleys annual conference, a fantastic reminder of the importance of social media as well as the complications and problems it can cause if done wrong! Sarah has amazing stage presence and delivers a powerful message  with such passion.
