Our very diverse group found Sally Fox an inspiration. Her thoughts, her philosophy, her very timely information was articulated with such spirit that we all left the meeting buoyed with renewed energy and commitment to our goals.

You renewed our confidence in ourselves and confirmed our reasons for being. We would recommend her to any group committed to getting results while honoring the human spirit.

Sally Fox presented a very moving one woman play about the family dynamics of a parent with early Alzheimer’s to a large room full of men and women at Horizon House, a senior community in Seattle. The questions and comments after the performance made it very clear that people were eager to bring this difficult topic “out of the closet” for discussion. The play format was ideal for portraying the perspectives of different members of the family as Dr. Fox showed both the pathos and the joys of such a situation.

‘I was fortunate enough to hear Sally Fox present as the main speaker at the 2016 Storytelling Conference hosted by the Kitsap Center for Nonprofit Excellence. Sally did an incredible job! She was high energy and engaged the audience. She helped us find and distill our organizational stories.

Sally, you have a gift for storytelling! It was compelling to hear such an authentic description of your cascading feelings combined with the story of your journey into the world of professional clowning. Your willingness to open your heart to us by sharing the personal meaning behind the events of your life will be a lasting inspiration and support for others when we, too, contemplate the extreme courage it takes to choose to be a beginner again.
