Sahar Andrade: Public Speaking

Sahar started her public speaking in 1991, traveling throughout the whole United States marketing a destination product to different audiences.

She continued with her public speaking as a part of her work in the different positions she held, also being a Competent Communicator Toastmaster, she enjoys connecting with her audiences and always adds a personal twist of her own sense of humor.

Today Sahar is a TED TALK Speaker as well as a SUE Speaker (TED TALK for women). Sahar has delivered presentations and speeches in the Middle East, Europe and the United States to corporations, associations, healthcare industries, educational institutions and different conferences and seminars on topics such as "Generational Gap: How to engage the Millennials"; "Overcoming Fear". "Changing negative thoughts to Positive ones". "Entrepreneurial Life". “Cross-Cultural Competence", "Global Leadership", "Diverse Team Building", "Social Marketing”, “Effect of Cultural diversity on Business Etiquettes”, " Cross-Cultural Leadership", Self-Branding”, “Cultural Awareness in the workplace”, and “Effect of Cross-Cultures on Marketing", "Unconscious Bias", "Empowering women", "Maximizing Personal Productivity", "Effective Communication", "Conflict Resolution", "Problem Solving & Decision Making", and motivating women.


What is unique about Sahar's speeches is that they are passionate from the heart, she learned Diversity and culture appreciation hands-on growing up in a diplomatic family, moving around the globe. Her experiences are hands-on and not read in a book or studied in a course.

Her audiences are motivated as they learn how they can shift their perception on their life and work. Also important is the work she does educating organizations and their employees on how important is engaging in a positive work environment.

Since the age of four years old, she lived, been educated, and worked in seven countries across three continents. She speaks five languages (English, French, Spanish, Arabic, and Hebrew). Her international experiences, travel and languages help her navigate through different cross-cultural barriers and build bridges between gaps.
