Sandra Lane’s entertaining and informative presentation was loaded with helpful strategies on how to avoid accumulating all sorts of stuff that we do not really need, and was delivered in a delightful and engaging conversational manner.

We received many compliments from our WIN members in regards to not only the content of your presentation but also the professional speaker abilities that you portrayed!

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your presentation at CMU. Not only was the information presented helpful for all of us, but you also very successfully engaged a wide ranging audience. Your presentation earns high marks for both content and your speaking ability. It was impressive.

Sandra is a fantastic presenter! She is articulate and engaging. She also provided several takeaways to help us manage procrastination with our clients as well as ourselves. I would love to see her present at NAPO again.

Sandra helped me with time management. I could see I was over extended. I was able to let go of some things and have more peace. What a difference

Janet H.

Thank you Sandra for your time and talent! Our Board President emailed me in the middle of your presentation to say how awesome you were and asked how we found you! So thank you for reaching out to us to introduce yourself and for a great presentation! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others as well in the future.

Joey Lerch, Butler HRA

Thank you so much for the awesome presentation at last month’s Bethlehem Haven Luncheon. Not only did you provide great practical advice (my desk and closets are on their way to being better organized) but you helped us raise funds for the women we serve.

Very helpful tips.  Sandra was very energetic and easy to understand.  I appreciated how she kept her presentation simple yet practical and something I will use.

 

MIHFMA attendee

Sandra did an amazing job presenting to the RV Women's Alliance. She brought great practical tips and a presentation that allowed our attendees to interact with her. Her energy was infectious and she presented in such a way that she was not talking at the group but rather inviting the group to go on a journey to what is possible when they take control of their schedule and lives. A great speaker and we would recommend her to anyone.

Jessica RiderRV Women's Alliance Managing Director

Sandra Lane gets my highest recommendation as a productivity coach. Her teaching has made a clear difference in my team's behavior and in how we conduct our meetings that has reduced stress and uncertainty in the flow and measurably improved information retention and outcomes.

PERFECTION. Poised, polished speaker delivering practical tips. Truly excellent in every way. Thank you!

 

NAPO Conference attendee

I would greatly recommend Sandra! She had one of the most highly rated sessions in our conference whose '7 Habits of Highly Productive Women' workshop delivered exactly what was promised - a deeply practical and well executed presentation.

Sarak ConkinContent Committee Chair, Spark Women's Leadership Conference

Sandra was both flexible and calm—a joy to host for our professional development series. With a topic as potentially daunting as time management, Sandra offered tips that were digestible and actionable.

Ashlee SangProfessional Development Chair, Association for Women in Communications

Your presentation was terrific. I received tremendous positive feedback. Thank you!

Richard BenonisExecutive VP, Equitable Advisors

Sandra Lane was my favorite speaker. She had the perfect tone of voice and speed for her session and her pre-prepped handouts were very useful. She gave great information that I can use immediately.

Spark Conference Attendee

Everyone really loved your workshop at our 2021 World Information Architecture Day Pittsburgh conference. Your strategies to combat procrastination are so universally helpful to us all. Your material was presented in a non-judgmental way which encourages us to be thoughtful about implementing positive changes. I highly recommend you as a speaker to groups of any kind. I saw how you tailored your prepared presentation to suit the needs of our conference attendees. We all left inspired.

Your suggestions changed the way I work which has opened up more time for me to spend with my family.

Organization, time management, project planning and productivity are skills that have been organically weaved into Sandra’s life. It began with influences from her dad’s organization in his workshop and her mom’s project planning for events.

After graduating college with a degree in business, Sandra worked in field sales for two Fortune 500 companies with territories that covered the five boroughs of New York and Western PA. After her children were born, Sandra continued working part-time as a professional trade show coordinator.

Sandra’s life experience as a mom and volunteer for multiple organizations from Garden Club to Girl Scouts has shaped her skills in planning, preparation, focus, goal setting and scheduling. Twenty plus years later, she still serves on several boards in her community and church.

She is a Board-Certified Professional Organizer, Productivity Specialist, active member and past president of the Pittsburgh Chapter of NAPO.   She is a member of the Pittsburgh Chapter of the National Speaker’s Association.

Sandra’s book, ‘Ask the Organizer’ is an Amazon best seller. The book is thoughtfully designed to be an easy read with it’s Q&A format that covers all topics related to time management, organization and productivity for the home, office and life. Sandra has also made contributions to various print articles as a productivity and organization subject matter expert including Thrive Global.

Sandra has taken that experience coupled with 12+ years as the Owner and Principal Organizer of Organization Lane to audiences, including the highly respected TEDx stage, with provocative presentations that motivate and inspire positive change. She also consults and encourages individuals to meet their goals while staying connected to their own self-preservation.
