Testimonials for Sarah Wilson

“Ogilvy Public Relations Australia is the largest PR consultancy in Australia. In July 2011, we hosted an event in Melbourne which focused on the future of the communication industry over the next 10 years and our panelists included an academic and very senior private and public sector leaders in communication from both Australia and overseas. Sarah was the moderator/MC and did a truly outstanding job. She took the time to REALLY understand the discussion topics, the hot buttons of the panelists, their differing styles and confidence levels. She masterfully managed a great event. Her natural style lends itself to this type of work. Sarah is a real pro and a delight to work with.”
Kieran Moore, CEO, Ogilvy Public Relations Australia.

My theories are very fresh (many are only just starting to be understood in Australia) and all about streamlining; I'm anti-diet and anti-extreme exercise: "The top 20 tips and tricks to live well now"; "I ate myself better: what I learned on my journey back from collapse" and "How to quit sugar".  

How we want to live now:

The best wellness, productivity and simple living advice from more than 100 Sunday Life column explorations and hundreds of blog experiments, including the personal lessons learned from meeting the Dalai Lama, Edward de Bono, Sir Richard Branson and many more.  

Media & writing:
I've worked for every media outlet - TV, newspapers and magazines - in Australia. I know traditional and new media intimately and have perspectives on the new landscape - because I'm straddling it! "Why we all have to be 'media whores'"
