Sarah’s speciality is solving problems by using emotions. She works with you delivering all 6 outcomes assessed by Ofsted. She really enjoys working with school governors, teaching staff, colleges and universities; with business managers and head teachers working alongside them as they master EQ. Recognising and managing not only our own emotions but also the emotions of others brings us different thinking and results! Sarah is renowned for being a highly skilled speaker & consultant, inspiring  “Business Transition EQ” – emotional intelligence.

Why Sarah?  Sarah is trained to deliver the Mindshop business problem-solving tools. Back in 1998 she taught at  Sompting Abbotts for 6 years, heading up the Pre-prep music department – teaching her own nursery class in the mornings. Sarah is also a trained nurse. She takes a conversational, empathic approach, assisting you and your staff through the process of unpacking what’s inhibiting teams or individuals from progressing.  She will work with you as you plan forward addressing accountability & implementation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
How does it work?  Staff need INSET Days to be empowering and fun. Team spirits are enhanced, with a direct impact on each person’s ability to deliver the basics. Sarah tailors her workshops – delivering a bespoke package, supporting individual needs plus culture and ethos of your school. Previously worked with state, academies and private schools (including Christ’s Hospital in Horsham) Sarah has acted as Master of Ceremonies and been a keynote speaker at educational conferences.
