Our synagogue had the opportunity to learn with Viva over Zoom during the Covid-19 shutdown. Her presentation was excellent and compelling. She was insightful and engaging. The congregants loved her material and presentation style. It was a great use of technology. Thank you, Viva.

Viva is a remarkable speaker!
I have attended two of her talks - one for adults and another for teens. Her style is highly engaging and her materials are relevant, audience-specific, on-point and contemporary. She is absolutely riveting!

On stage, Viva Sarah Press demonstrates a commanding and compelling grasp of Israeli technology and innovation and the ways they influence and impact a broader global society. She is a skilled storyteller who is able to turn complex narratives into relatable anecdotes that both engage the audience and leave people eager to hear more. Her wealth of experience and expertise is complemented by her dry wit and straightforward approach, all of which make her the perfect panelist or keynote speaker for any audience or occasion.

Viva Sarah Press joined Jewish National Fund’s Women for Israel Annual Luncheon in South Florida. The women came away commenting she was one of the most dynamic and interesting speakers they had heard in a long time! She gave a unique and entertaining perspective on Women, Innovation and Business intertwining great personal stories. Viva has a wealth of knowledge on this topic as well as giving a wonderful Positively Israel message that would be great for any group!

For those seeking a different perspective on contemporary Israel than the one which usually makes the headlines, Viva Press provides it. Our community very much enjoyed hearing about all the amazing high-tech advances that have made Israel into a "start-up" nation. Viva's engaging presentation style helped make accessible to our community the complex technologies that form the core of her expertise.

Viva Sarah Press has joined National Women’s Philanthropy on two occasions. We first met Viva on the Heart to Heart 9 Mission to Israel when she lead a discussion and small group conversations for 100 women on Women in Innovation and Technology. We knew we had to invite Viva back—we needed to learn more from her! So, Viva joined us in Florida at the 2019 International Lion of Judah Conference where she moderated a panel session on “The Amazing Adventures of Female Jewish Innovators” for 1,400 conference attendees. Viva is a pleasure to work with and is insightful, organized, responsive, and hilarious! I highly recommend her to speak on a diverse range of topics including Israel, women, innovation, technology, and more! She is a skilled moderator, conversationalist, panelist, presenter, and more!

Viva was our third and final speaker in our annual Israel Speaker series last year; Ari Shavit and David Horovitz were here earlier in the year. Her material was compelling, she was engaging and it was a perfect way to finish off the series and a superb way to highlight Israel.

In early December, the Women’s Cabinet of the UJFT invited the women of the community to a PLUS ONE engagement event featuring Israeli journalist and blogger Viva Sarah Press, who presented to a standing room only crowd at the Sandler Family Campus. To quote an overheard remark made by a few of the participants: “She was a ROCK STAR!” Press wowed the audience with her presentation on high-tech medical advances coming out of Israel today.
