At the intersection of clarity of intention and desire what communicates a common belief and builds trust? Story.
Speaking done well is telling stories that move the audience to think differently, to take action, to feel something new, to understand what they didn’t before.
When it matters, everyone is a good story teller. They tell their stories deliberately to inspire hope, courage and a conviction to act. In business their stories describe the culture and reinforce the purpose that directs it.
My talks gather these stories to explain how this works personally, in business and community. To serve the greater good.
A NEW BUSINESS ELIXIR
Clarity of purpose and principles — the immutable laws that govern how we work—combine to drive intention. Intention compels action.
Together, they forge the right path, the right messages, and the right stories for the right people. Then the momentum takes over and great work can begin.
In this presentation, you’ll hear Sandy unfold the exalted dominion purpose and principles sculpt in a business world today that has few definable boundaries.
BRILLIANT BLOGGING. PROFITABLE CLANS
Purposeful blogging creates opportunity, positions us as leaders in our field and gathers our community. Can we afford to ignore it?
Then noise online has become a roar. Without laser focused clarity and coherence, it’s impossible to reach, teach and convert your ideal customers. So the question is not, ‘are you blogging’, but ‘ how well are you doing it?’
MAKE YOUR STORIES MATTER
Your stories matter. They sculpt your life’s experience. When you tell them, doors open and lives can change. In this talk, Sandy explains how stories told and blogging online can ignite passion and gather community. She demonstrates this by sharing how a global community came together to work to help the millions of children orphaned as a result of HIV AIDS and poverty in southern Africa.
COMMUNITY, THE NEW FRONTIER
At the intersection of intention, compassion and stories community gathers. With such community what we can do is yet to be imagined.’
This presentation unfolds the methods that drive organisations to embrace the power of volunteer communities for mutual returns as they uplift the lives of others.

I have seen different versions of this talk from Sandy more than six times now. Each time I still tear up, but more importantly it makes me more determined to take a leaf out of her book and do something to make the world a better place. She is an amazing, accomplished, vulnerable, authentic and generous speaker and I am so very privileged to be working with her. If you want a speaker that cares deeply about making a difference and leaving your audience inspired and activated for change, then Sandy is your woman. CAROLYN TATE, FOUNDER SLOW SCHOOL OF BUSINESS
We are always looking for talented and inspiring speakers to present to our business network. When I discovered to Sandy’s TEDx talk, I thought her story was remarkable.Sandy told a heart-rending tale of a disaster—millions of children in Africa orphaned and made vulnerable through AIDS and poverty. But she also showed us how she used simple online strategies to create a global movement that keeps growing.
She has adapted her own experience into a book and a package that shows people how they can apply these strategies to their individual lives and businesses. Sandy’s inspiring Get It Right Online presentation starts with the heart and ends with the head. She not only inspires people with passion toward a goal, but also gives people the skills they require to reach it. DANIKA BENISON, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OFFICER, CITY OF BOROONDARA
