Sara Cottrell

My experience has taught me that people matter if businesses are to grow and meet their ever-changing challenges.

I really enjoy my work with business owners, senior leaders and teams, helping them gain maximum clarity about the specific needs they are facing, and then to design, create and grow businesses they love to work in.

I coach, support and train to transform businesses and enable people to bring their unique talents, energy and capability to work every day.
