I had the pleasure of hearing Sandy speak at the 2017 Women's Energy Network National Conference in Houston, and I can honestly say that hers was the best session I attended during the two-day event.

Vice Chair, American Bankers Association

I had the tremendous pleasure of seeing Sandy Asch speak this past January. The topic could not have been more timely given the uncertainty in our world and the impact this uncertainty has on the world of Global Mobility. Sandy and Tim's work encompasses many of the key attributes that will drive employee and team success in the future. ROAR reminds us that resiliency is absolutely key to building an innovative organization that thrives on overcoming challenges. As the father of two amazing daughters I was personally moved by the relevancy of this work to raising children! Personal growth is not merely about winning, it's about how you play the game and more importantly, how you overcome your biggest challenges.”
