Sarah Furness | Speaker Biography

After completing her studies at Cambridge University, Sarah pursued her lifelong dream of becoming a combat helicopter pilot in the RAF. Rising to the rank of Squadron Leader, she took charge of operational combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, where she achieved the remarkable feat of being the first female helicopter pilot to fly and lead UK Special Forces missions in Iraq.

Throughout her time both on the battlefield and at home, Sarah made two significant discoveries. Firstly, she realized that resilience and exceptional performance under pressure are not innate qualities, but rather skills that can be developed. Secondly, she observed that humans possess an extraordinary capacity to excel and lead when faced with intense pressure, as long as they possess the necessary knowledge and tools.

Now, Sarah has dedicated herself to a singular mission - to unveil the secret behind outstanding resilience, performance, and courage in the face of adversity. She aims to share this invaluable knowledge with others, empowering them to thrive even in the most challenging circumstances.
Sarah’s story and her energy is filled with inspiration and a raw unfilltered realness that can be hard to find these days.” Lana Robinson, Client Relationship Manager
I’ve heard many great speakers. It’s rare to hear a speaker who can translate their experiences directly into the workplace with such clarity and such relevance. Marcus Price, CEO, Iress.
There is nobody worth listening to more than Sarah Furness in today's world. Real experience, real stories no out-of-a-book fluff. Paul Lloyd.
