I invited Sara Jones to keynote for Xant Next2020 Leadership Conference because of her unique ability to bring empathy into her work through her storytelling and to motivate our attendees to be passionate about the power of connection and authenticity. She seamlessly taught the audience how to build connection in their own sales careers and lives.
