"Sara Elizabeth is in a class of her own. You will be hard pressed to find someone who has such a vast knowledge of the entertainment industry from both the business and the creative side. She has helped inspire hundreds of students through teaching for Stage 32 and consistently gets 100% satisfaction ratings on her work. I've enlisted Sara Elizabeth to speak all over the world and have had her speak at the Cannes Film Festival in France, the Black Nights Film Festival in Estonia, FilmTT in Trinidad and Tobago and FOCUS in London and it always amazes me how she can connect the global entertainment industry to specific regions. She's inspirational, motivational and just an all around great person."

Amanda Toney

Managing Director, Stage 32

"Sara Elizabeth is incredible on stage, and we so appreciated the smarts and passion she brought to the topic of diversity in film. I was flooded with positive responses from our audience after the program who couldn't stop raving about the conversation as one of the most inspirational experiences they've had. I too feel lucky to have been there!"
