Sam Stern grew up in the UK and then lived, studied and worked in the USA before moving to South Africa 23 years ago.  She has over two decades of experience working in the areas of leadership and personal empowerment, diversity, equity and inclusion, youth development and organisational development. 

Through her work with diverse people and organisations, Sam discovered her love for building bridges between people, places and ideologies.  And through her own ongoing personal journey she was drawn to creating spaces for self-discovery.   She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Social Science and a Master’s degree in International Affairs.  She is a certified facilitator and coach and has completed a range of courses in process-oriented facilitation (process work), managing social change and working with complex systems.
