Introduction to Sahar Hashemi
"Sahar Hashemi took her audience on a 30-minute ride-taking them through a heart-tugging and sincere tale of how she made it big in business ... Her story was a little like the Alchemist, and the audience wouldn’t stop clapping even after Hashemi stepped down from the stage."
"I saw the incredible experience that ‘Anyone Can Do It!’ was for those who heard you speak. I have been in the communication business for forty years . . . never before have I seen a talk make so much impact on an entire audience. For two whole days and evenings they talked about almost nothing other than Sahar Hashemi, what she had to say, and how she said it. It was almost impossible to discuss anything else!"
"Sahar, you were amazing. You scored 97% on evaluation forms – highest score ever."
"She connected with the audience at an emotional level and made a lasting impression ... 8/8."
"You were mindblowingly marvelous – highest score of all 13 speakers – 3.93 of the possible high of 4!"
"I wanted to let you know that Sahar was a great success at our workshop in Stockholm last week. She did an excellent job of taking on our brief about "brand" and converging it with her own story. The result was fantastic and hit all the right notes."
"We have had many speakers address our audience of business owners – but the feedback after Sahar's story was exceptional."
