“We’ve hosted Sandra three times at eBay. Her talent as a keynote speaker is just as remarkable as her skill as a Broadway performer. She incorporates live singing into her presentation, something completely unique that touches and inspires even our most buttoned-up team members. We keep bringing Sandra back not only because she is fun and easy to work with, but because her message about authentic presence perfectly aligns with the core values of our company.”
“The single best thing we have ever done. I feel I should retire now. How could I ever come close to an experience like that?”
“I’ve never heard someone from another industry speak so directly to the challenges we face.”
“We usually open our conference with a standard keynote speech on inspiration and innovation, but this was something totally different. When Sandra took the stage and began to speak, there was not a sound in the room. Our attendees were mesmerized. And then when she sang—there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!”
“Sandra’s presentation was captivating and inspiring. The way she engaged the audience with her warmth and authenticity was beyond description. Our guests left with a memory that will last them a lifetime.”
