Sarah Hyndman public speaking

Public speaking

Would you like to engage your audience with an interactive talk that combines insights and inspiration with entertainment and humour… and a bit of fun as they discover something about themselves?

Sarah Hyndman is a regular public speaker and an engaging guest on radio and TV. She specialises in making typography exciting and accessible for a mainstream audience, with originality, humour, a dash of theatre and lashings of audience participation.

You can arrange for a selection of pre-talk experiments to bring the topic to life and immerse the audience in the discovery process.

“Sarah is a fantastic speaker – she engages audiences with a brilliant mix of warmth, good humour and real insight into her subject matter – in which she is expert. She quickly warmed up a noisy crowd and had them eating out of her hand, everyone taking part (almost unheard of) and I only heard good things about her talk afterwards.” Luke Tonge, Glug curator
