Sunday Times bestseller author of 2 life-transforming books. 30 years delivering deep transformation to thousands of individuals. 20 years helping leading brands respond creatively to changing winds. 5 years transforming an incurable cancer diagnosis into vibrancy, creativity, activism and service.
A familiar personality following the stunning success of her first book, The Cancer Whisperer, which placed Sophie on a global stage as an authority on how to thrive in adversity. She has since made numerous media appearances, written a second Sunday Times bestseller called ‘Lifeshocks – and how to love them’, created a new narrative about cancer, given a TEDx talk about grief and built a speaking business. She has also been to the north and south poles of her humanity and courage in order to stay alive.
Sophie, who has had multiple brain tumours four times and has nearly died twice, is a testament to producing remarkable results in the most limiting circumstances. She knows more than most about how to unleash creativity in the midst of intense challenge. Most adversity speakers have overcome whatever happened to them, but Sophie is speaking it and writing it as she lives it.
She has spoken on dozens of wellness stages in recent years, but her expertise is not in nutrition or the physical aspects. It is in the emotional and psychological aspects. She equips people to take hold of their fear so that it doesn’t take hold of them and has empowered tens of thousands of cancer patients to find their power in their most powerless moments. She is a high profile patient activist who advocates for others while undergoing sometimes brutal treatments herself.
B.C. (before cancer) Sophie ran a leadership and culture change business consultancy, which delivered practical psychological tools back when this was still at the cutting edge of business practices and considered quite weird. Her mentor and business partner, Dr. K Bradford Brown, was a direct student of the Auschwitz survivor, Viktor Frankl, the founder of humanistic psychology, Carl Rogers, and the British philosopher, Alan Watts. She stands on the shoulders of giants in this field.
Sophie Sabbage has also been delivering life-changing courses for a global educational charity since 1994. She is a multi-award-winning talent – among them awards for Best Corporate Culture Change Programme, Excellence in Journalism and the prestigious Gold Nautilus Book award. Her academic background is in English literature, psychology and organisational change. She brings all this experience to her speaking clients. Her audiences leave wiser and braver than when they arrived.
Eloquent, congruent, boldly truthful and gifted at reading people, Sophie gives vastly overused words like ‘authenticity’ and ‘transformation’ power and credibility. She sees what needs seeing, says what needs saying and shifts what needs shifting. She also has a reputation for expressing what other people experience but are unable or too afraid to say.
