Sarah’s passion for purpose-led leadership comes from creating a career that she loves following some “lost years” working as a circus performer in Spain in her twenties. Having achieved a first class degree in psychology and a position at a global consultancy, she decided to step away from the corporate world despite her love of applying insights from organisational psychology to help people improve performance and wellbeing. Moving to Spain, Sarah unexpectedly fell on hard times and spent four years on the road, evolving a street circus show and juggling fire across the vibrant fiestas of Spain.This tough but life-enriching experience showed Sarah how fulfilling our deepest potential comes, not from ignoring our calling, but from doing what is ours to do. No learning is ever wasted and ‘crucible moments’ hold valuable clues to our purpose. Through performance, Sarah also learnt the art of pulling a crowd, a skill she has applied in the corporate arena ever since, with a well-earned reputation for engaging, entertaining and educating people as she guides organisations, teams and leaders to enjoy meaningful work that creates real value.
