Shortly thereafter, she authored Rock Stars Incorporated: Hiring the High-Performance, High-Maintenance Hotshots Half Your Age (2008) and also launched the RockStars@Work Conference, both geared towards bridging the talent gap in the workplace. As a sought-after speaker and consultant, Sarah works with organizations nationwide, providing Next-Generation Intelligence through a variety of mediums: strategic planning,Â keynotes and workshops, web-based training, marketing campaigns, and special events.
Her expertise has been featured in local and national media, including the Star Tribune, Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal, National Public Radio, and Fast Company.
