I had the great pleasure of interviewing Sarah recently.

With over three decades of expertise in the arts, she has contributed her talents to leading national companies such as English National Opera and the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as local community arts initiatives.

Along her journey, she has embraced mentoring opportunities, fostered creative business capacity-building, strategised for growth, and effectively planned for organisational development.

Her background is rich and varied, encompassing audience development, marketing, communications, participatory arts, and project delivery. When it comes to creative endeavours, Sarah offers tailored support and solutions to individuals, businesses, and organisations, helping them realise visions and achieve objectives.
