“From the first time I met you, I felt like you didn’t just listen to people, you actually HEARD them and, in doing so, you create a safe space for people to speak honestly and to trust that you have their back. This generates loyalty from those around you, and makes people want to be on ‘your team’.” Partner Client

Sarah, thank you so much for today. I love how fun, authentic and beautiful you are. I feel so comfortable with you that I manage to be vulnerable and honest in your presence. I admire you and how you manage yourself and look forward to working with you more in the future.” Workshop Client
“I still think back to the first time I met you and participated in a session you were facilitating and the WIN Conference. I was drawn to you immediately and I left your session feeling something deep within.

I know that I would not have gotten through this [big life transition] as gracefully or as confidently had I not had you by my side.” Sponsored Client

“Mama always says: ‘Ask and It Is Given’ and so I did. It came to me in the form of an unforgettable Mindmapping session with Sarah Furuya. The help I received from Sarah, through the one Mindmapping session I attended, helped me invaluably, not only in the beginning, but continues to flow into all that I do.” Private Client
“I would recommend a session with Sarah to anyone as she is an easy person to talk to and she is not afraid to as some of the more difficult/probing questions, which often result in a more true map of you. A must for people looking to change industries or those that are tired of there current work life.” Private Client
“4 years ago I met Sarah as I was making the biggest transition of my adult life. Launching the creative business I had been slowly building for four years. I was ready to leave full time employment. Through mind mapping, Sarah created a map to guide me forwards. She held me accountable. She followed up.
As I continue to grow my creative business and develop both professionally and personally, Sarah is there every step of the way.
When invited to speak as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, I booked in a session with Sarah. Coaching which included her incredible ‘Your Authentic Voice’ worksheet. Priceless. How to frame my presentation. How to make my message accessible. How to deliver the best possible value. The best possible story.There are many stories in my family. When preparing for a family visit, I booked in a session with Sarah to understand these stories. To be aware of triggers. To clear up conflicting feelings. To sort the lies from the truth. To arrive at a place where I could simply enjoy the time together.
And I did.
Our stories envelope our experiences. It’s important to get to know them as they show up in all we do. As an artist and a writer, I create work based on how I process the world. On how I process my human experience. I want my filter pristine. My vision clear. My focus as sharp as my pencils.
Committing to understanding my story is the best gift I gave myself. I can show up better. Serve people better.
Sarah specialises in stories. A truth seeker. A truth teller.
Unapologetic. Committed. Invaluable. I don’t take a step without her. ” Private Client
“Sarah’s keynote was personal, profound, and provoked both thought and action. She understood what her audience needed to hear and pushed them to think more about the way in which they articulated their story and fuelled their life. During the preparation stage of the event she was extremely helpful not only with her own speech but in helping us navigate the day as a whole. She provided much-appreciated support, steering, and positivity to the success of the day.” Corporate Client
“As an organisation committed to empowering and helping women reach their potential, we were thrilled to have Sarah facilitate a workshop. We look forward to continuing our learning with her again” Workshop Client
“Sarah is more than just a career coach – she is a cheerleader, a confidante and a co-conspirator. I enjoy meeting with her to assess my progress and also my head-state. Many times I feel like it’s impossible to live the dream, that I’ll never achieve anything of import, but she encourages me to realize that all it takes is confidence and courage.” Private Client
