Sara is a visionary entrepreneur driven by her desire to help other purpose-led entrepreneurs to step up, grow their businesses and make their difference in the world.
After 5 years of studying politics at Exeter, the LSE and at the prestigious Institut d’Etudes Politiques in Aix-en-Provence, Sara started her career in the Westminster Parliament. She learnt about the corridors of power; how deals were made in smoke-filled rooms and that the ability to communicate is THE core skill required to truly make a difference and create change.
Since then she has dedicated her entire career to helping people, organisations and brands to communicate better. She has advised some of the largest companies and charities in the world from UNICEF to Avon, from Kellogg’s to Variety – and start-ups including fledgling space missions and challenger bank Starling.
Sara is no stranger
to the impact of crisis, chaos and global uncertainty
on a career and a business.
She managed to progress her career – reaching the UK Board of one of the world’s largest PR agencies - whilst navigating through divorce, cancer, at least three recessions, bereavement and a horrific accident that left her with injuries requiring multiple surgeries. She also started her first entrepreneurial business in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crash - and grew a profitable business with revenue over 7 figures in just 12 months - in spite of a global economic meltdown! That company, Pagefield, is one of London’s leading independent communications agencies, and has won countless awards for work with brands like Airbnb and British Airways.
Sara keeps a watching eye on Pagefield as a Board Director but she now works exclusively with purpose-led entrepreneurs through her company Actually. She uses everything she’s learnt in her career, plus her coaching and training skills, to help them to harness the right mindset, skills and support they need to grow businesses that will make a difference and change the world.
When we asked her clients what they love most about Sara they said: her kindness, her commitment, her generosity, her genius with words and her ability to help them cut through the chaos to find focus and clarity.
Sounds like a good combination, right?
