Accelerated Communication Skills Training Program for Ambitious Tech Professionals

  Enroll in Course

As a woman in tech, you are among the most driven and exceptionally skilled people in the workforce.

But is a lack of confidence holding you back from speaking up, sharing your ideas, and going for the opportunities you deserve?




I know that's easier said than done for so many women because we've been conditioned to take the back seat, especially in professional environments.

Several research studies have confirmed manterruption and mansplaining are real, with men speaking significantly more than their female counterparts in meetings and other work-related events...


But is this something we can fully blame the guys for, or is some of the shortcoming from us?

This program has been created to address exactly that, so that you can BE YOUR OWN (S)HERO, proudly representing your thoughts, ideas, and WORTH, in any setting you find yourself in.


  • You want to speak with more confidence and authority to your peers, managers, and external stakeholders
  • You don’t want to be afraid of expressing your opinions at meetings, panel discussions, or networking events
  • You get nervous when delivering presentations to clients or answering questions from senior management
  • You wish for more influence and respect at work
  • You’re passionate about what you do and are dedicated to becoming a well-spoken and well-rounded professional

I know speaking in public is scary and can be brutal.
But it's a learnable skill that anyone can master!


Online Course: An 8-week digital course, comprised of a series of easy-to-follow actionable video lessons, that will tackle the topic of confident communication in three phases:

  1. Mindset
  2. Body Language
  3. Presentation Skills

Lessons will be released every Wednesday, starting from January 2, 2019.

Weekly Digital Support: Following the release of each lesson, in-person support will be provided via 60-minute webinar sessions in order to discuss the latest topic and address any questions.

Sessions will be scheduled for the afternoon Pacific Time, so (S)HEROs can comfortably participate after work hours.

Optional Live Workshop: For those near a Persian Women in Tech city chapter, there will be a live in-person workshop in 1Q'19, where (S)HEROs will be able to meet and build on the communication skills they've learned throughout the course.

Registrants of this course will receive a special offer discount to attend. Exact date & place TBD.

Taken together, this interactive program will teach how smart, ambitious women (like you!) can understand their value and speak up with unwavering confidence, so that they can get noticed and move closer to achieving their well-deserved personal & professional goals.

Her method encompasses three distinct areas of focus — mindset, body language, and presentation skills — all of which are crucial components to being an effective communicator.

A former PR & Marketing manager, her experience spans an array of brands and companies; from up-and-coming tech startups, to prominent national and international brands such as CNN, E! Entertainment, tbs, TNT, truTV, iHeartMedia and Cartoon Network.

"My time with Sahar was a game changer for me! Through our work together, I learned how to speak up at work and not be afraid to share my thoughts or input with the team… which didn’t come naturally at first because I'm a reserved introvert. Sahar's program taught me how to organize my thoughts in a way that made sense, and gave me the tools I needed to be able to proudly speak my mind – in work & beyond!"

- Yasaman Mandi, Embedded Systems Engineer @ Edwards Life Sciences

"As a workshop leader, Sahar was engaging, informative and confident. I enjoyed hearing about her background and how she overcame her communication hurdles to get to where she is. I also loved the interactive aspect of the workshop as I felt it put everyone at ease. Overall, I found the topics covered very useful – especially the part about the importance of effective body language while presenting."

- Nazli Boroshan, Provider Relations Manager @ The Behavioral Health Provider Network (theBHPN)

"Thanks so much to Sahar for her work with me. It was great timing! I am at the beginning stages of developing some unique programs to support immigration and language development in some rural areas in Canada. I am confident in my skills as a language coach. However, I am new at presenting these ideas to people that are not in my field.

It was amazing to discover her expertise. Sahar was able to help me sort out my objectives to fit into a great presentation for my target audience. After our time together, I was blown away by how Sahar was able to give me such quality advice within such a short period."

- Lana Johnston, Language Support Program Coordinator @ Ontario (Canada) Ministry of Citizenship & Immigration

"I really enjoyed Sahar's workshop presentation. And because she was confident and engaging, it was easy to follow the material. I also really liked the interactive activity she had us do outside the room, as it kept everyone interested in the larger discussion. Overall, the event was very interesting, I learned a lot, and got the added bonus of networking with others. Thanks again, Sahar, for the great workshop!"

- Alireza Delfarah, PhD Candidate @ University of Southern California (USC)
