During the Covid-19 pandemic and the temporary halt of live events, Sarah has been booked as the exciting guest speaker for webinars and virtual events. Read her feedback from virtual events below.

"I want to thank you for joining us this morning, especially at such short notice. The content covered in your presentation was absolutely spot on- there were some poignant examples and excellent take-home points. Thank you also for pitching it so eloquently for our sector. Whilst cybersecurity is on the minds of the SLT, I'm still not entirely convinced it's getting the full attention and investment required and we are keen to make sure those conversations are taking place... thank you from my team and I" - Lisa, Marketing Director, iSAMS
