Meet Sarah Tsai – Global Innovator, Entrepreneur, Speaker, Mother

In an increasingly diverse and complex world, I have grown a multi-national business while simultaneously navigating motherhood. I’m the founder and CEO of Sarah Tsai Consulting where we partner with companies on transformational projects across digital, technology, operations, and market expansion initiatives. 

Originally from Taiwan, my career has evolved as I continue to serve corporate clients, pre-market companies, nonprofit organizations, and the public sectors. I’ve worked very hard to chart my own path as an Asian American Woman. I’m passionate about building our collective career agility as well as guiding each individual to find their spark. I would love to share my unique insights with your audience.

Global Innovation

Earlier in my career, I worked with startup companies on new and innovative technologies. I also supported Fortune 500 Chief Innovation Officer in creating Billion Dollar platforms along side major Global businesses.

As founding member of a consulting firm that delivers transformational new product platforms that drive major, top-line growth. I led large-scale innovative projects across a variety of industries including healthcare, manufacturing, consumer packaged goods, technology, international peace and infrastructure solutions, and more. I also helped small-to-mid-sized businesses with assessing their intellectual property strategies to help them lock in long-term growth. My clients include Eaton, Belcorp, GlaxoSmithKlein, Nestle Purina, General Mills, PepsiCo, and various government agencies and nonprofit organizations.

My Zig-Zag Career

With a love and knack for learning languages, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Arabic and my Master’s Degree in Political Science. My career began working with the United Kingdom government in its Taipei Foreign Service Office, helping facilitate a deeper understanding of the relations between Taiwan and China from a local perspective.

My adventurous spirit craved new experiences, which led me to move to the United States in my early 20s. I stumbled upon a modeling gig after being cast in a McDonald’s TV commercial. I started to hone my craft in acting, but more importantly, I needed to know how to “run my own business” – keeping track of expenses and income as a contractor. Modeling and Acting is still a “side hustle” I’ve kept to this day while simultaneously working on other business ventures.

I believe the career we chose should combine our purpose, our passion, and our talent. I love sharing my experience with those who are still figuring out what works best for them on their journey.

Navigating Motherhood

Motherhood is the most exhausting yet rewarding endeavor one can undertake. My kids are in elementary school at the moment.

After working as an employee, for over a decade, I started my own business giving me more flexibility in my schedule. I am committed to helping other women create the same option for themselves. It’s challenging, but my experience proves that women can successfully be a leader in their field while raising a family.

Speaking Experience

I am a frequent speaker at conferences and event. The topics typically centers around entrepreneurship and career exploration. 

I have also presented at the American Marketing MAssociation, Cincinnati Business Courier, Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, Taipei Medical University, University of Cincinnati, Thomas Moore College, and Northern Kentucky University.

You have to find and ignite your spark – the thing that energizes you and that makes you feel alive!

I would love to share my story and insights with you. This can be in many forms: keynote speaking, panel moderating or speaking, teaching, mentoring, live streaming, podcasting, hosting, or any other fun way to ignite the spark with a curious audience.


Your presentation was a big hit this year!  We appreciate you sharing your personal experience on how to chose the right career path. Your candor and ability to relate to our students was phenomenal. Our students resonated with your observation that “the jobs you will be seeking, for many, have not been invented yet”!  Thank you for your insight and wisdom.
