A Note from Sarah

I work with organizations all the time to bring in great speakers and content. We spend months preparing the venue, working on the advertising and reaching out to guests.

Every time I host a live speaker, the event planners are always disappointed in the number of people who attend. About half normally show up, with some emailing in they got caught up in something else (work, kids, life etc.) and others not responding at all. I got frustrated that planners were disappointed and felt bad that women were missing out on exceptional development opportunities. 

Plaid Conversations is exactly my answer to that. It' a two way conversation with speakers from all over about the business of life, your entire life, not just one aspect of the many hats you wear.

Each month we bring a speaker directly to you (join live or catch in your inbox) about something we know will enrich your entire life. We cover inspiration, career & money, home & family and health & wellness because none of our roles stand on their own.

I hope you will join us for 2019 Plaid Conversations as we bring amazing speakers to you to help you live your best life.
