Sahar Hashemi Teaching and Events

Hashemi is known for being a Princes Trust speaker ambassador. She has given many keynote speeches for the Women’s Summit Institute of Directors, Malaysia Global Leadership Forum, IAA world congress and the Wall Street Journal.

Sahar is an avid speaker and offers one to one coaching. The coaching is individually and flexibly tailored to each person allowing them to effectively incorporate the strategies towards their team and build upon their entrepreneurial mindset. In the start up coaching behaviours taught can instantly be implemented and committed to. This may take persistence but it will pay off.

The coaching lasts around 60 to 90 minutes once a month, so that entrepreneurs are able to commit to it. These sessions are focused, sharp and do not use cliche or jargon. The ethos for this coaching is to react to each leader’s strengths and specific development areas they need to work on. All sessions vary and do not have a set flow or agenda that needs to be stuck to. This allows for honesty and transparency with clients. As well as a complete understanding of how clients are wanting to change and how they can claim this with start up culture.
