I am so lucky to have such a dynamic team of people, who not only support me, but share and appreciate my business values.
Well it is actually the acronym for managing a stroke casualty and who doesn’t want fast first aid!!!!
A little bit about me....I am Sarah Shaw
Founder and Managing Director of F.A.S.T. First Aid Training
Founder & Director
What do you love about teaching? Seeing the “Aha” moment on a student’s face when the information lands.
Something people might not know about teaching? It’s exhausting! You are literally entertaining the crowd, it requires massive amounts of adrenaline to do this. It’s harder than it looks!
Careers prior to teaching: fast and varied!!! Fitness Industry, Nutrition Coach (I still look after some amazing and loyal clients), workplace safety, hospitality for ages!
Biggest pet peeve? People not being respectful and my youngest son picking his toenails!
Who do I admire the most? My little sister, she is an entrepreneur, an author, a kick arse mumma and she has a heart of gold and never gives up.
Best piece of advice you have ever been given? Well it’s become a bit of a mantra really “I am doing the best I can with the time and resources available." This statement applies to so many situations.
Parting words of wisdom? Be true to you
