Sara is passionate about helping leaders align around an ambition and developing the growth mindset, skills and effective ways of working needed to deliver outstanding results. Her client portfolio spans industries, including technology, consumer products, industrial goods, metals & mining, and oil & gas.
Prior to joining the firm, Sara held various client-facing roles at Duke Corporate Education and Mercer. While with the latter, she led a consulting practice and was responsible for client growth, people development and P&L.
