"Sarah's presentation for Madison Women in Tech on personal branding was fantastic. The idea can be intimidating, but her description of personal branding as 'an invitation for people to think differently about you' really helped set the tone. Sarah had good pacing, practical advice and clear takeaways. It helped me confirm what I was doing right, while providing me several easy-to-understand next steps!"
