Is your marketing connecting with your audience?

Short Version Sarah Braud Bio

Sarah Braud is a writer, brand & marketing consultant, and keynote speaker who loves talking about how entrepreneurs and leaders can use storytelling devices to connect with audiences, spark interaction, and ignite their businesses. The digital marketing agency, Social Marmalade, which she co-founded was acquired in 2017. Her writing has been published in Art House America, Hunger Mountain, Hippocampus and a variety of other online publications. She is a regular contributor to Reality Bites, a digest for leaders produced by Leadership Reality, and City on a Hill, film and curriculum production company dedicated to the crossroads of faith + art.


She is a StoryBrand Certified Guide, Leadership Challenge Facilitator, and holds a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction, which is just another way of saying she likes to tell true stories, but exaggerates a bunch. She uses humor and insight from the Enneagram to survive her life as an adoptive parent, creative entrepreneur, and passionate advocate for the immigrant and the oppressed.
