Hi. I am...
Viva Sarah Press.
I tell stories. Share knowledge. Design with words.

share knowledge in educational and innovation spaces

create better user experiences
make complex concepts easy to understand
work to create something different
empower people to tell their stories
Communications, lecturing, journalism, research, presentation training and innovation. This is what I do.
I have an MA in Human-Computer Interaction (with thesis) and a BA in journalism and English literature. I am a published author of academic papers, an educational resource book and thousands of journalism articles.
Through writing, consulting, speaking, iterating and training, I collaborate with teams in different fields to best communicate a story, engage audiences, create effective content, lead projects, find research insights, educate, create new products, and enhance user experience.
With over two decades in communications and related fields, I have served in senior editorial and production roles at media agencies, lectured in Israel and North America, and have collaborated with dozens of startups, education companies, media outlets and non-profits. At present, I work as an independent consultant, presentations trainer and speaker in innovation and communications. You can also find me in the freelance roles of senior delegation connector at the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation and lecturer for the investigative journalism course at Reichman University. And I serve as a mentor for MassChallenge Israel, helping startups and early stage entrepreneurs pitch their stories to investors.
In the "other" category: I am a mom of three (all teens), a Scrabble fan, enjoy travelling when possible, and am ever curious.
