Meet the CEO and author and learn more about her vision for XYZ University.
XYZ University facilitated a strategic planning session for our Board. They were a great resource and helped us overcome the problems hindering our growth. I’m so glad XYZ University was who we chose to help us.
We had been seeing years’ worth of membership decline and revenue reduction. XYZ University’s strategic plan gave us the direction and momentum we needed to turn things around. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
Sarah Sladek’s presentation has and will continue to make a difference on our association. In addition to the excitement and interest in thinking differently about membership, we’re also exploring ways to engage the XYZ generations in our field.
Outstanding! The association is a-buzz following Sarah Sladek’s presentation — from the Gen Ys to a 70-year-old board member. She was a huge hit!
We’re still working on engagement strategies that emerged from the XYZ University training and we still refer to the insights gained from that workshop on a regular basis. It’s important and relevant to our bottom line.
Sarah Sladek’s presentation was the highlight of our conference! She created quite a buzz during the entire event and our recap session.
XYZ University’s webinars are fantastic! So much good information and great momentum! I enjoy and learn during every one. I feel privileged to get to hear them!
The session presented by Elisa Webb Hill of XYZ University was deeply illuminating. Her astute observations and suggestions continue to inform me every day as I work to attract and retain this generation.
XYZ University’s online presentation was a hit for our Executive Committee members. We haven’t had an executive retreat this energized in years!
XYZ University hosted a webinar for our international group of managers. We received several positive comments. They delivered exactly what we needed and tied it to our business at Kellogg perfectly.
The energy that XYZ University brings to their work is excellent! Their expertise and professionalism surpassed our expectations, and they firmly established the course for business success.
After attending a XYZ U workshop, I was so inspired I immediately went back to my workplace and dramatically changed my management style to better accommodate the different generations. The result is a workplace with happy, productive staff!
Sarah Sladek’s understanding and knowledge is exceptional and inspires thinking outside the box. Her understanding of generational transition and its implication to real world challenges and opportunities is second to none.
XYZ University’s keen observations of multi-generational differences have opened my eyes to powerful trends among emerging leaders. Only by understanding their unique motivations can we create optimal ways to serve them, and they’re rapidly becoming influencers.
Sarah Sladek, XYZ University’s CEO, was a very enlightening speaker. Our audience loved her content and approach. It was a great presentation and I hope I can hear her speak again in the near future!
Sarah’s presentation strongly resonated with our leaders and the importance of engaging Generations X and Y in building the future of our association and its 63 chapters. Her presentation stands out and her message is memorable.
Sarah Sladek started a revolution in our association! We needed a wake-up call. Sarah not only got our attention, she gave us a blueprint to move forward and stay relevant.
Through XYZ University’s workshops I have begun to see how a better-informed approach to Gen Y can improve my efforts to retain everyone. They have helped me see the importance of engaging all employees.
Sarah Sladek was able to quickly engage our task force, guide them through some tough discussions, and move them to a place of understanding what our association needed to do to ensure future growth.
Sarah’s presentation has continued to cause a stir among our local associations. She was a HUGE hit!
Thanks to XYZ University’s insight into the attributes and attitudes of Generations X & Y, as well as their organizational management acumen, we were able to implement some very significant changes within our organization.
Change isn’t necessarily progress, but when an association can tether change to progress and benefit its members in the process, the association will grow and prosper. We hired XYZ University during a time of membership decline. I can honestly say that because we followed the advice that XYZ University provided, our association never experienced a recession. In fact, our association grew 13.5% and hosted its largest conference in association history.
XYZ University’s perspective was very timely for our industry as we work to determine our customer of the future and what our association will look like in the future. Sarah Sladek engaged our chapters to think in different ways about engagement, and her ‘what’s in it for me’ outlook translated well for our membership strategies.
I have hired XYZ University on more than one occasion. The books, presentations, and strategic plans are thought-provoking and solution-oriented. They make success possible because they make it easy to adapt to change and embrace the future.
