The landscape of leadership and organizations have changed. Whether in a corporate or volunteer setting, team members want a sense of community and belonging. However, building this kind of culture doesn’t happen on its own, rather it’s based on action. Princess Sarah’s keynote is for groups who are serious about belonging and allyship, and recognizing differences and taking on people challenges to solve and innovate.

Princess Sarah uses her personal experience as an adopted child growing up in a bi-racial family, as well as understanding a whole new culture when she discovered that she was a real-life princess in Sierra Leone. In addition to this inspiring journey, she draws from her business side as an entrepreneur (in entertainment and gaming).

In this keynote, filled with stories and value , Princess Sarah covers three areas:

  • Embrace your assumptions to elevate yourself and those around you.
  • Be willing to get uncomfortable and have the challenging conversations.
  • Navigate with compassion and use humanity to listen and learn to drive decisions.

Building a culture of belonging is more than top-down leadership and operating on the mindset that it’s someone else’s responsibility. Princess Sarah focuses on empowering YOU, the individual, to take action and build a tribe that is meaningful, passionate, and sustainable. Princess Sarah customizes her talks for each group based on their needs (in leadership, teams, culture, and D&I).

Leadership determines everything. If you have two equally talented teams and organizations competing in the same industry, the team and organization with the most effective leaders will win. Superior leadership performance produces superior organizational performance.

This keynote provides innovative ideas and strategies to thrive in today’s rapidly changing business world to help leaders transform themselves and those they lead. The need for bold and courageous leadership has never been greater.

This energizing presentation dives deep into the DNA of transformational leadership and how leaders can immediately implement specific behaviors to drive leadership effectiveness. Matt uses real-world examples of standing in the trenches with leadership teams and provides an action plan to help attendees create alignment, build inclusive teams, and influence others to action.

The outcome of this keynote will be leaders who are inspired and fully prepared to lead their teams and organizations confidently into the future. Lead inspired!


  • Explore key competencies and mindset shifts of transformational leaders.
  • Learn how to lead confidently and effectively through uncertainty.
  • Discover how to increase leadership communication to enhance engagement and alignment.
  • Learn key steps to build an inclusive team and drive trust.
  • Learn how to become a coaching leader to enhance business performance and improve performance management.
  • Identify the leadership gaps that paralyze growth and scaling desired behaviors.

In ‘Fear to Fabulous’ Sarah Culberson explores how she achieved her dream of connecting with her biological family: an experience that changed the trajectory of her life for the better. She began her journey faced with the fear of rejection but stepped into a fabulous world where she met her family, connected with her tribe, and accepted the responsibility of supporting those with low visibility. Discovering her heritage revealed a new purpose where she actively works alongside community leaders in order to promote various infrastructure, public health, and female empowerment initiatives throughout Sierra Leone. With both a BFA and MFA in theater, Sarah mastered public speaking and acts as an advocate to campaign for diversity, equity, and  self-discovery.  Sarah inspires others with her experience of how she embraced the unknown and ventured into a wonderful world where she found what she is meant to do in her lifetime.

Good story on not fitting in, diversity, being grateful, staying positive.  Engaged the audience for comments.  Team motivation starts with getting to know each member—no I in team.  Really listening to others.  Changing one’s mindset and being grateful every day.
