Trainer | Margarita Sarmiento

Margarita Sarmiento is an award-winning international trainer & speaker, certified leadership coach, and author. Three major career shifts, as a result of reorganizations and lay-offs, gave rise to over 30 years of management and training experience in both the corporate and not-for-profit sectors. These life changes have provided the unique ability to intuitively connect with people by sharing her expertise through personal stories and hands-on knowledge.

After one of these job-pivots, Margarita found she was providing training and coaching to friends and colleagues. At their encouragement she made the decision to branch out on her own, establishing ITK Consultants. Now, over 15 years later, she has been called on to successfully consult and train in a variety of industries, including Hospitality, Healthcare, Social Service, Transportation, Finance, Insurance, Law Enforcement, Government, and Education. She continues to design and deliver customized programs, giving her a chance to utilize her communications degree and influence positive change.

A native of Cuba and graduate of Florida State University, Margarita is a naturalized citizen of the United States and an admirer of different cultures, traditions, and perspectives. She loves her crazy Cuban American family and may be guilty of highlighting them in some of her stories.

More information on her work, including the book, Managing Courageously: Serving Others Authentically While Leading from the Middle Office, can be found at

Margarita’s most recent collaborative publication, SPARKS: Ignite Your Way to Success, is currently available on Amazon.
