Hire me as a speaker

Looking for a speaker on inclusion and disability in PR?

I regularly speak at in person and virtual events on disability, ableism and inclusion. My list of speaking engagements includes CommsHero, The Blueprint, Vuelio, PR Week Measurement Conference, PR Fest, Leeds Trinity University, the University of St Andrews and Barclays. I’ve presented to rooms full of academics, SME business owners, fellow practitioners and students.

What you get from me as a speaker

I’m an experienced and prepared speaker comfortable using a slide deck or talking from the heart. I’ve been writing and speaking about diversity and inclusion since 2017. I can cover topics related to hearing loss, ableism, disability and inclusion in PR, leadership (I run my own PR agency linked here) either within the PR and comms sector or in other areas of business like the energy sector and professional services. I’m a Chartered PR professional and was cited as one of the Shaw Trust’s most influential people working in the media industry in 2018. Whether I’m speaking to a over a hundred people in a room or five people in a room – the quality of experience is the same.

Testimonials

Leeds Trinity University

2021
I invited Sara to speak at the Leeds Trinity Business Network as part of  an expert panel to support businesses through lockdown. Sara focussed on Communications and PR and came well prepared with thoughts on how the sector had been impacted by the pandemic, key observations of interesting trends and examples of good and bad practice, and advice on what businesses can do for their own businesses. Her expertise was evident and her insights were well put across and so interesting. Sara was clear and articulate in her answers to questions and to her ‘what you can do now’ section. We received excellent feedback and I’m sure a lot of delegates took some useful ideas for their own communications.  I wouldn’t hesitate to ask Sara to speak  again at one of our events. Thank you Sara!
