Sara Ross is an international keynote speaker, the founder and Chief Vitality Officer at BrainAmped – a leadership research firm – and author of the book, Dear Work: Something Has to Change.

Sara is on a mission to help organizations and their leaders reignite a sense of aliveness in both their work and at home. She and her company do this by using brain science-based strategies to teach people how to amplify their emotional intelligence, resilience, and well-being.

As a leadership expert, Sara's ideas and research have earned her a reputation as a fresh and thought-provoking voice in discussions focused on the future of work. As such, Sara is called on to work with clients such as Microsoft, PepsiCo., WellsFargo, T-Mobile, Fidelity, Stanford University, the U.S. Navy SEALs and the leadership team of the NBA’s Orlando Magic, among others.

Sara has worked with numerous government agencies, foundations, and associations. This broad perspective and diverse experience help explain why Sara is called on to work with some of the most senior, technically sophisticated, and skeptical audiences.

You can count on Sara to bring her trademark energy with the integration of relevant, cutting-edge science and relatable stories of success and failures. Her approach is guaranteed to challenge the status quo, provide new insights and inspiration, and most importantly, leave audiences with a blueprint of actionable strategies.

Before founding BrainAmped, Sara spent a decade immersed in the neuroscience of emotional intelligence and performance at a leadership development company. Sara has a Master of Science (MSc.) from the University of Waterloo.
