Her facilitation and the workshop were fantastic and organized to work with our translator.

“I attended Sarah’s workshop in Tokyo and was so impressed with her delivery that it made me self-reflective on my “unknown self”, I’m sure this didn’t happen only to me but for everybody who attended her session and experienced a number of enlightening moments. Her facilitation and the workshop were fantastic and organized to work with our translator, and she shared valuable-based solutions. I highly recommend Sarah as a workshop facilitator”.

Several participants indicated that this workshop was among the most impactful segments of the entire development program.

“I engaged Sarah Hathorn to facilitate a 4-hour workshop on Personal Brand and Executive Presence as part of an internal development program for Director-level leaders.  In addition to sharing her expertise, Sarah was willing to modify her approach to our course curriculum.  Her content, however, went beyond what we could have delivered ourselves, as she cited experts and shared personal examples.  She was an effective facilitator with a well-paced workshop design.  Several participants indicated this workshop was among the most impactful segments of the development program.  Overall, Sarah delivered as promised and more than met my expectations.”
