Sarah’s passion for purposeful leadership comes from creating a career she loves after some lost years in her twenties. Having achieved a first class degree in psychology and a position at a leading global consultancy, she decided to step away from the corporate world. After unexpectedly falling on hard times, Sarah spent four years working as a street circus performer, juggling fire in the fiestas of Spain.

Sarah is passionate about helping others to become more purposeful in their lives and leadership by tuning into the emergent future that wants to happen.
