What people say about me

Team culture and performance

“What I will remember you most for is the transformation of the whole corporate team. Changing that atmosphere is never a quick win. And that’s what made your immediate impact all the more impressive! The two parts became one team, and a new energy came back into that side of the organisation. And it has only continued to grow, and the standards of the team have improved dramatically – I look at a team of experts who know what they’re trying to achieve and have confidence in themselves to get there. That all stems from your leadership. It was amazing to see, and all happened so seamlessly. You have left a legacy here.” 

People development

"Sara has been a fantastic manager and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her over the last two and a half years. Her strategy and approach to running the corporate partnerships team has led to brilliant results, not just for the organisation and its fundraising, but to each and every member of staff.  Her interest and commitment to my own personal development has been hugely transformational for me, and I use her advice daily in the way I approach tasks and people. There aren't many times in one's career that you get to work with someone quite so inspiring and outstanding at what they do.  The legacy she has left our team and organisation will have a long-lasting impact in the years to come."

Corporate Partnerships

"Sara is one of the best fundraisers and line managers I've ever had the pleasure to work for. She made me fall in love with corporate partnerships, and taught me nearly everything I knew by the time I left. I feel so thankful to have worked with her, and truly believe anyone who has the pleasure to do so is incredibly lucky."
