Step Back to Scale Your Business

Imagine switching off at the end of the day. Evenings, holidays and days off where you can be truly present with the people you love and choose to share your adventures with. Sleeping soundly at night, excited about what the next day in your business has to offer.

Visualise a team that takes accountability to overcome challenges, looks for solutions and are continually moving towards a joint vision. Empowered, loyal, and growing; personally, professionally and in size.

Think about a future where you can work less and experience more.

It is hard to visualise this when:


You are wearing multiple hats as a business owner / CEO / MD / Manager


You are time poor and too stretched to proactively think about how to get to the future you want for your business


You are lacking a succession plan and / or management structure which makes it difficult to share responsibilities.


You are in a constant reactive state of mind, that means you don’t have the capacity to make conscious decisions


People and processes aren’t working together cohesively, and work and projects are suffering because of it

What you really want is…

An empowered team that you trust to make decisions AND mistakes but learn from them together.

A skilled group of people with shared passion and responsibility for the business vision, who show up every day to achieve their own objectives and work together to reach the business goals.

Enabling you to focus some time on yourself, what you love doing and the next goal or big dream.

I can help!

Through working with me you will:


Create a balanced approach to life through purpose; delivering health, wealth and happiness

Build a clearer vision of the future of your business and a plan of how to get there
Grow your business and succession plan to give you back the luxury of time
Develop the freedom to make more mindful and conscious decisions as a leader
Connect and communicate effectively with your employees and management team, enhancing retention
Build an empowered environment to drive autonomy and an opportunity to delegate more

My passion is people and purpose.

I know personally that operating from a place of purpose brings positivity, happiness and reward, both for you and those around you.

Over the years I have strategised for business growth, built new teams, re-structured teams, spotted talent, coached leaders and most importantly invested in my own growth so that I can be the best coach and leader possible. I am honoured to work with others who wish to do the same and create amazing people focused businesses.

“As a values-led agency, working with people who understand our ethics and approach is vital. At a crucial moment in our development, Sarah helped us pull together a strong, competitive, and values-led approach to our growing team.

We now also have a brilliant Employer Value Proposition, onboarding process and benefits package, that are already delivering benefits across the business, as our new joiners settle smoothly into our team.

We had all the ingredients, but Sarah’s sessions on our why and purpose helped us delve a little deeper. The outputs we’ve got from Sarah’s work with us have been big picture, but also incredibly practical and we’ve put them to work straight away.”
