Working with brilliant clients to define exceptional customer strategies

Meet Sara

Founder & Lead Consultant at The Strategy Place

I’ve had a super career so far, working with lots of brilliant people to create amazing work. I worked client side for big names such as Barclays, BT and Universal Pictures before setting up and exiting my own city-based consultancy.

 

I had a grown-up gap year a while ago and spent a wonderful time backpacking around South America, learning Spanish, training as a chef and recharging my batteries. Now I choose to work with a handful of clients, solving gnarly problems and creating value.

 

My clients tell me my talent is working through the piles of cr*p to get to the insight needed to create truly effective customer strategies. I love what I do, love the people I work with and make sure we have fun whilst working hard. Life is too short to do otherwise don’t you think?

Happy Clients

Sara led the reorganisation of our marketing function with clarity of thought and genuine insight into the business needs. We are operating at a new standard of delivery and receiving plaudits from the business around our new approach. She’s smart, funny, practical and gets the job done. She also has great hair :)

- CMO, Landsec

We needed a dramatic strategic transition and Sara delivered that strategy for us with a level of detail and customer focus we hadn’t had before. We now have a unifying language and frameworks across the business that is customer-led and sustainable. We will continue to work with Sara to continue our journey.

- CEO, BRE

Sara worked with us to refine our brand positioning and define our brand values, personality and strategic approach. As always, she delivers shining brilliance in challenging situations.
