With a super-human sensitivity to interpersonal dynamics and differences, Sarah is an extraordinary mentor when it comes to trying to make yourself heard. She sees through complicated issues quickly, understands what you’re trying to achieve and where you might be stuck, and helps you put yourself in the other person’s shoes – all with humor, graciousness, and warm-hearted pragmatism. To her workshops, she brings a special kind of energy that opens everyone up to a different way of relating to each other and to the world. I consider her an invaluable resource, and she’s changed how I use my own voice in the world.Josh Greenhut & Associates
Whenever I need an interactive facilitator and dynamic speaker, I think of Sarah Neville. The Canadian Women’s Foundation has hired Sarah on several occasions to provide workshop facilitation during our conferences and events. Participants leave her sessions feeling acknowledged, better connected to each other and gain valuable knowledge. She creates a positive learning atmosphere and recognizes the importance of participant engagement and the diversity of learning and communication styles. Sarah is an effective and compelling presenter, and makes our job easier while helping us to achieve our goals.Chanel Grenaway, Director of Economic Development, Canadian Women’s Foundation
Our startup clients were coming to us with varying levels of presentation abilities, which made it challenging to produce a consistent pitch video product for them. We called in Sarah to assist with their on-camera presentation skills and following her one-day workshops, we noticed a distinct jump in the quality of their presentations – generally more self-aware with better body language, more casual and comfortable flow in their speech, better use of the camera and overall, better pitching to the camera. I’d definitely recommend Sarah as a corporate presentation coach for both on-camera and live scenarios.Claude Soulodre, Senior Manager, MaRS Media, MaRS Discovery District
Sarah was fabulous and her session was informative, empowering and practical. It went beyond my expectations. Sarah walks her talk and you can see she practices what she teaches. She leads by example, and it’s evident that it’s effective.Delegate, Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario Conference
Like cod liver oil … hard to take but good for you. Feedback was tough, practical and constructive. A really useful session on presenting as a leader!
In 25 years, this is the best training I have attended. I really appreciated feedback on my presentation from people who understand my business.
An amazing experience! I have to say that my coach really stood out! His feedback was so specific, and constructive that it opened my eyes to acute things I could work on when I have to present to and motivate my team.
Extremely useful session, her energy created a giant buzz in the room… great passion, knowledgeable, constructive and welcoming. Every segment led to learning new ideas, meeting new people, encouraging passion.Conference Delegate, Ontario Skills Institute Conference, Canadian Women’s Foundation
“Much more than a supplier of communications training. They are insightful partners in the development and delivery of practical and relevant performance learning that delivers lasting change…
Through a highly personalized coaching approach conducted in small groups with skilled facilitators, OL demonstrated the ability to help professionals take away skills they could immediately implement to advance their careers.
In my long career in working with many different training suppliers, OL is without a doubt one of the very best.”
The best session of the conference.Conference Delegate, Canadian Administrative Professionals Conference
