Sarah is a first class colleague who is customer-focused at all times, the driving force of her effectiveness. She is an invaluable asset to the Sycol team and pleasure to work with.
In the absence of a proper marketing plan, Sycol lacked a strategic approach to driving sales. My biggest challenges were prioritising time to develop and deliver a marketing and sales strategy and finding someone to bounce ideas for growth.
Since working with Sarah I’ve seen big results in sales and marketing strategy, greater reach, new business and 100% revenue growth.

Sarah's input into how I should establish an online presence for my latest business venture was invaluable. She advised on website content, value proposition, communications and created a new brand for the business backed up by a social media presence.
Sarah spent a lot of time listening to my requirements as she does with all her clients thus helping us create a platform for our target market. I whole heartedly recommend Sarah to take your business forward and create a viable marketing strategy.

Sarah has a very good understanding of the educational landscape having gained experience in the sector over a number of years. She understands the sensitivities and nuances of working with and selling to schools, academies and local government. This awareness helps her position a solution in a way that works for the customer and results in a successful proposal that the client buys. Sarah is professional, insightful and has a keen eye for detail; moreover she is very approachable and easy to work with. I’m very happy to recommend her to businesses seeking to maximise opportunities in the education sector.

Sarah's advice and encouragement has played a major part in helping the expansion of Open Minds. Her background in working with educational facilitators and the private sector has been invaluable to me. She has answered my many questions concisely and responded very quickly which has helped to move this part of the Open Minds programme much quicker than I had foreseen.
From many offers of help, Sarah was always first to reply, pointing me in the right direction making sure I was aware of the alternatives. Without doubt or hesitation I would recommend Sarah to anyone looking for business advice.
