Starting a podcast: from daunting to determination to daring to diagnosis

Find out how Sana went from being a tech-phobe, to podcaster of Courage Unravelled and a business award finalist in FIVE categories. All in 15 months. This is a keynote about grit, moving through personal fears, breaking down perfectionism, determination and success on her terms. Let your audience gain insight into how someone’s obsession and letting go of perfection have their own rewards. Sana wants you to be inspired into action and success – on your terms.

Your Voice Matters. Your Story Matters

Sana takes you on her courage journey of starting the podcast Courage Unravelled and how along the way, she found her voice. Since then Sana has worked with people to help them find theirs. This is for audiences who want to understand how stories can heal us and act as medicine for ourselves and others.

Being courageous in business

Sana takes you on her journey of starting something she never ever contemplated until 2019, especially as she is a self-confessed tech-phobe. An online podcasting course took Sana on a ride she never ever considered before. Why would she? She’s a tech-phobe right? It’s amazing when you step into your fear and conquer it, just how liberating and transforming it can be. This can be a speaker topic only or can be extended to include a facilitation on growth mindset using courage as the framework. 

The Power of the Mind is an Amazing Gift

We all have health setbacks from time-to-time. Some more than others. Sana walks you through her hallway of what it’s like to have a body breakdown, to heal and recover. The power of the mind is truly an amazing gift. Grit, resilience and strength are part of this keynote. Sana shares this story for many reasons. She wants people to act on the signals their body is giving them before it’s too late and understand the gifts illness can bring. Beneficial for an audience of business owners and entrepreneurs and employers who want the best for their employees. This can be a stand alone speaker topic or can be extended to include a facilitation session.

Autism: the gift of possibility and opportunity

What’s it like to be diagnosed late in life with autism? To know that some things don’t make sense when they should because sometimes the dots don’t seem to join and communicating with people you like and love should be easy – but it’s not!  Sana shares some of her challenges and how they can be viewed as gifts in the workplace, in business and the home. Great learning for businesses wanting to learn about and embrace inclusivity, innovation and diversity in the workplace. This can be a stand alone speaker topic or can also be extended into a facilitation session. 

A healthy mind in business

Business is not just about accounting, marketing and administration. It’s also about mindset, self-care, the wellness factor and how we approach business in the first place. Sana shares personal stories, professional expertise, education and research into what constitutes a healthy mind in business.
