Testimonials

“Sarah joined us as the main speaker at an event exploring intersectionality.  She was fantastic, bringing the topic to life in a frank, honest and open way.  She told her inspirational, personal story warmth and humour, bringing everybody in to the topic.  All the event attendees gave fantastic feedback, saying they took away very useful tips on allyship and a better understanding of the challenges and support Sarah has experienced.”

Alison Whittington, Head of Housing, Zurich Municipal

“I recently asked Sarah if she would be able to provide my team with a session framed around her experience of being a Trans woman with a disability. We wanted to highlight this subject and have an opportunity to discuss this as a team. Sarah offered a fascinating and honest insight into this area and gave a personal perspective of this subject area, with opportunity to discuss some of the implications for the people we work with. The team found the discussion invaluable and thought provoking and welcomed the opportunity for open discussion.”

Kate Laybourne, Sensory Impairment Team, Oxfordshire County Council

“Sarah was on the panel at a Law Society/RPC event looking at issues affecting LGBT+ disabled people. As the Chair, I was able to appreciate the effect Sarah’s honest experiences were having on the audience. By telling them with such good humour and in an entertaining manner, she ensured maximum impact.”

Chris Seel, Diversity & Inclusion Adviser, the Law Society

“Sarah is one of the most inspirational speakers that the college has had. Students hung off her every word, not only is Sarah’s personal journey remarkable, the lessons that students took from it have enabled some of them to come to terms with their own identity  and disabilities. It is unusual in a group of 16 year-old's to be able to hear pin drop but that is exactly what happened when Sarah came. I would definitely recommend Sarah to any organisation.”

Louise Knott, Vice Principal at Vision West Nottingham College

“Sarah participated as a guest speaker at a partnership conference in Nottingham on the theme of: ‘Exploring Intersectionality and the Power of Role Models.' Sarah held the audience with her courage and honesty as she shared her story of living with a disability and gender transition. Sarah also agreed to feature on a video of LGBT+ role models to inspire others to be positive in the face of challenges. Sarah is an inspiring role model and speaker."
