About Hearty Humans

Sarah Hearty, founder of Hearty Humans, is a vibrant, expressive & natural public speaker with a passion for communications and teaching this art to others. Her dream of becoming a confident speaker turned into a burning desire when a moment passed in her late teens to publicly recognise the beauty of her two deceased grandparents at a family gathering. She wished she had been able to seize that moment with confidence.
On recognising the huge value of communications through achieving a Masters (2.1.) in Public Advocacy & Activism, and BA (hons. 1.1.) in Communications & PR, she grabs every opportunity to speak up. Simultaneously seeking to develop her own skills and encourage this growth in others.
To balance education with experience, Sarah has had lots of fun whilst undertaking many exciting public speaking engagements. A couple of notable examples are: acting as an on-stage interviewer for Shopify’s European Support Summit 2019; hosting JCI Galway’s Ten Outstanding Young Person Awards 2018; faciliating a Public Speaking & Youth Leadership course for TY students 2017; and being the lead host for the book launch of ‘A Reason To Love More: The Alzheimers’ Enigma’ with special guest, George Hook in 2016.
She is also Co-founder of a podcast show called 'Partners in Positivity' which has over 40 podcast releases to date. The mission of the broadcast is provide a space for Sarah and her partner Aisling along with a range of guests to voice perspectives on positive mental health and to nourish listeners with positivity, humour and shared wisdom. 

Sarah takes great pride in her contribution to building a community of confident speakers. She also takes pride in her dedication to continuously improving her own speaking. Since 2014 she has acted as a committee officer and vibrant, active member of the international public speaking and leadership club, Toastmasters. Last year she served as President, maintaining the highest club standard of President Distinguished and for her contribution in 2017/18, Sarah received an award of Toastmaster of the Year.

In her efforts to reach out & serve a wider community to help more people practice carpe diem at crucial times, Sarah founded Hearty Humans. This service exists to offer 1:1 Public Speaking Coaching and Tailored Workshops for students, employees, management or an individual of any background and ability seeking personal growth in communications. Sarah is also available for Speaking Engagements.
