hi, I’m Sally Z

I’m an award-winning speaker and professional speaker coach who’s spent the last 20 years helping thousands of people step into the spotlight with authenticity, a cohesive narrative, and a powerful point of view.

About
I help speakers
go from good to
great.

And from boring to brilliant! My skill-building approach and time-tested insights help you learn to trust yourself with newfound confidence when you step into the spotlight – which translates directly into more connection, growth and revenue.

About

My coaching career started after my new boss (and fellow speaker) asked me to give him some feedback on his talk to teenagers that we delivered across the country. I did (though I was a bit nervous about it! – I mean, feedback to your boss?!). But he loved it, and within months I was coaching ALL of the speakers at the organization.

Here’s the gist: I have always loved “the stage” and being up in front of audiences of all sizes – as an actor, a speaker, a facilitator and coach.  And I know I’m here on this earth to coach, and empower big-hearted entrepreneurs to step out front, share their story with authenticity – and create a life-changing movement with their message!

Along with being a busy entrepreneur, I am also a mom of three, a wife to my college sweetheart Andy, and a proud Minnesotan. (You betcha!) There are currently 5+ cups on my desk (most of them either Starbucks or any kind of bubbly water). My Labradoodle Bailey sits under my desk most of the day and keeps my toes warm. (I <3 her.) And when I’m not enjoying the beautiful little-big town of St. Paul, I head up to my family’s cabin to soak up the sun and scenery.

“Sally offers what a coach does best, raising the lid of current performance. She found my blind spots and pushed me to address them.
