Sam runs her own business called Get Your Message Across and works with Neurodivergent adults and their friends, family and co-workers to leverage their skills and insight by providing an interpreter service and training courses to enhance communication and behaviours. She regularly speaks to local groups to increase awareness and education for both Autistic and non-Autistic adults. She has recently launched her New Rules of Engagement programme, delivered a TEDx talk on the same subject, at TEDxMalvern and is writing a book about it. This programme teaches employers predominantly in the IT Sector how to attract, integrate and retain neurodivergent individuals into their team to enjoy the talents and loyalty of those with a differently wired mind.
Toastmasters has played a key role in enabling Sam to leave her corporate life and pursue her passion for clearer communication and wider opportunities for neurodivergent individuals, having discovered her own neurodivergence at age 35.
