We’ve had wonderful feedback from all of our members and would certainly recommend Sally’s coaching and speaking abilities.”

“Sally-Anne was a key speaker at our Kaplan Connect evening, providing first hand insights into employment strategies, the importance of networking and personal branding. The event was an opportunity for current finance and business students and prospects, Alumni and industry practitioners to network. Sally-Anne was an important component of the evening, being one of three industry experts, she wrapped up the speeches for the event with her insights.”

— Kaplan Online Higher Education, Sydney

“Sally-Anne Blanshard assisted Kaplan Higher Education with the Career Management Series of events in November 2011. As an experienced Career Coach and Speaker, her input was invaluable in ensuring this series of career events was a success. Sally-Anne helped us with the structure, content and timing of the series which was pitched at Kaplan prospects, students and alumni and she expertly tailored her presentations to suit the audience (postgraduate finance). However it was the engagement of the attendees throughout the series that really impressed me. She remembered their names and their professional situations, engaged them in the workshops and stayed after the events to work on issues with attendees. Without Sally-Anne, we would never have been able to grow the attendee numbers as we did throughout the program. Sally-Anne was also a wonderful contributor to the promotion of the events. Her knowledge of social media marketing and event management assisted me greatly. As to her enthusiasm….well you just need to be in the same room with her to understand the energy she brings to a project! It was an absolute pleasure working with Sally-Anne on this program and I hope to work with her on many more in the future.”

I was impressed by her ability to use the personal experiences of the attendees to guide the flow of the discussion. This ensured the information provided was relevant and relatable. Testament to the quality of the information was that members have already provided feedback on the successful implementation of her ideas around networking with purpose.”

Participant Feedback

“Sally-Anne hosted a series of seminars that I attended. All were extremely worthwhile but the one of most value to me was the networking evening – I’ve gone from being concerned about the best way break into conversations with people to thinking that I need to work on the “moving on” part so that I can meet more people! Way beyond the expectations I had for a 1.5hr seminar.”

— Toby Farrow, Sydney, NSW

“I recently attended the Institute of Chartered Accountants Vacation Evening for which Sally-Anne was the main speaker. Her ability to challenge the professional normalities was indeed invaluable not only to myself, but to all other students who were fortunate to be there. I couldn’t be more thankful for the professional insight given, as it was completely relevant to the accounting industry. I would definitely recommend Sally-Anne for future professional events, whether it be aimed at students or those in the current workforce. A great presentation over all. Thanks again!”

— Cameron Archer, Brisbane

“I have attended a few seminars as part of my job/connection research at Kaplan Professional. I was very impressed by Sally-Anne’s ability to present topics in a practical manner and motivate the audience to take steps towards their new career .The seminars motivated me to partake in a one on one session with Sally-Anne a few days later. As a person new to the Australian job market, she made a great difference to my approach, personalized the session and gave me the directions in order to get the best possible results for me in the future job hunt. Getting a professional coach can be the breaking point, especially for those in need of guidance in a new environment. Sally-Anne motivates you into opening new doors, changes your perception as she gives you valuable feedback and direction for your next step. Highly recommended, the benefits far outweighed my expectations!”
