Hey all! Meet our producer and main idea-maker, Sarah Hatter! She’s an author, public speaker, conference producer, and entrepreneur. Sarah’s well known in the tech industry for her work focusing on the importance of customer experience and brand strategy and for her efforts to bring professional development to the world of customer support.

You may have seen Sarah’s origin stories on our Instagram account (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4), and we’re adding to that with this Elevated Woman profile:

What’s your day job?

I run a customer support consultancy, CoSupport, and I produce the Elevate Summit events for support pros.

Why’d you decide to produce the Elevate Women’s Event?

I have felt purposed for a long time to be a mapmaker for other women – in my head that means someone who has scouted out the marshes and valleys and come back to camp to draw maps for other people to follow. I think my job here on earth is to use all my wisdom and experience to lead others to make better decisions, to trust their instincts and develop their self-love and self-worth, and to in turn lead and mentor others.

What was you biggest ah-ha moment as a woman?

I was always told I should marry a rich man. No one ever mentioned or suggested that *I* could be the rich one, that I could support myself successfully without getting married, that I could be a business owner or mentor and didn’t need to just wait for someone to rescue me. I rescued myself.

What do you wish you could tell your younger self?

Save your money. Don’t be so dramatic. You deserve someone better (and taller) than him.
