Mind & Body
A creative and engaging speaker, Sarah is passionate about improving people’s health and wellbeing; ensuring that in our busy lives we do not neglect to pay attention to what is good for our bodies, our relationships, and our families. Sarah delivers presentations and training in stress management, resilience, health and wellbeing. Her talks are thought provoking – encouraging her audiences to make small changes that can have a positive impact on their health and wellbeing. By making small changes and investing in yourself in positive ways today, you will ultimately be creating a brighter future for yourself. Sarah has delivered enrichment talks on several cruises – including P&O and Princess.

Sarah has recently expanded her portfolio of cruise talks, by including topics focused on another of her great passions. Since seeing the band play live in the UK in 1979, Sarah has been a self confessed Abba superfan. Four decades later, she has visited the Abba museum in Stockholm, seen many of the Abba tribute bands, visited the island of Skiathos where Mamma Mia was filmed, and watched both movies more times than she can remember. Sarah’s talks are fun, interactive and (inevitably) injected with Abba music. What’s not to love?

“A huge thank you for your information, and also for the excellent and life changing talks on board”

“We both have very full on, stressful jobs, and we learnt so much from your talks about how to wind down, relax, and not allow work to overwhelm us.”

“We very much enjoyed your talks and I am using your relaxation techniques already and I must say they are helping”.

"I am so glad that you followed up and send the handouts after a wonderful cruise and for you a lengthy time away from home. A reminder I am Tony the man who is blind and attended a few of your sessions on the Panama cruise. I regret that I only discovered you during your fourth or fifth lecture but I really enjoyed your talks and hearing your personal story that led you to helping people in this way. Thank you"

Abba Talks

1. Abba: The Making of a Supergroup
The ABBA story began in Sweden, more than five decades ago. When they won the Eurovision song content in 1974 with ‘Waterloo’, all four members had been recording artists for the best part of 10 years. To date, their total sales are now said to be in the region of 375 million.

2. Abba: The Wonder Years. Part 1
In 1976 ABBA firmly established themselves as one of the most popular groups in the world. The Greatest Hits compilation album became a global blockbuster. Classic single releases such as ‘Fernando’ and ‘Dancing Queen’ topped the charts all over the world.

3. Abba: The Wonder Years. Part 2
During their active years, ABBA released 8 studio albums, 3 compilation albums, and many singles, including their final UK Number 1: Super Trouper, in 1980.

4. The Abba Legacy
At the end of 1982, ABBA decided to take a break. But the legacy lives on: The musicals “Chess” and “Mamma Mia”, the hit movies “Mamma Mia” and “Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again”, the Abba museum in Stockholm, Mamma Mia the Party, tribute bands, to name but a few.
I have delivered talks for Princess and P&O cruises from 2010
