Sarah has a wealth of proven experience working in marketing/communications leadership roles on a global scale. In that capacity I have seen ... her time and again produce compelling, innovative campaigns that literally reached out to consumers in 100+ countries. That said, Sarah's powerful 'big picture' capabilities are sometimes overlooked due to her kind, generous and unassuming interpersonal skills. She is an absolute delight to work with - not only as a highly effective creator of results-driven market campaigns, but also because it is a joy to have her tirelessly working along side you... contributing to the success of your project.
