Testimonials

"I was totally blown away by Sara’s keynote speech. She was warmly invited to our Equality, Diversity Inclusion Away Day 2022 at University of East London. Her speech describing her lived experience of being 'wired differently' was just so inspiring and honest. This is the start of our association with Wired Differently - look forward to having Sara back to speak to our students at our Career Zones in the next academic year."

Naheed Khan, University of East London

"Sara was a guest key note speaker at Criteo's Community Event which supports awareness of living with disabilities. Sara gave an open discussion on her life, her experiences and also some incredibly helpful insights that many have found helpful around the topic of neurodiversity. She has a very relaxed style and the talk became more of a conversation which was helpful to engage a broad and global audience. We hope to continue to partner with Sara on future events, and access her expertise to support future campaigns to celebrate openness and inclusion at Criteo."

Rachel Scheel, Senior Vice President, Criteo.
