Quote:  “How have I shape shifted my identity to fit the circumstance so I can still serve, even though I’m not doing it from the podium in front of hundreds of people?” Sarah McVanel

In the COVID era that we’re currently living in, how are you working to pivot your business to deal with change and the unknown?  On this episode of The Wealthy Speaker Show, we welcome Recognition Expert, Sarah McVanel who will share her ideas on how to turn a negative into a positive and always keep your business moving forward.

Sarah helps people fall back in love with work. From her first job waiting tables to years later being a quasi “work therapist”, Sarah could never understand why people didn’t show appreciation and recognize each other more; now, as Canada’s Recognition Expert, she speaks, trains and coaches leaders to leverage the exponential power of recognition to retain great people and live more satisfying professional lives.
