Sarah is one of the world’s leading experts on how to grow your business globally through digital strategies.
Sarah is Founder of Grow Global, a pioneering digital training company which propels companies to unstoppable international growth by using digital channels to substantially increase online sales to customers all around the world.
She works with nations, trade promotion and development agencies and companies to export more through digital trade, generating more international leads and sales, raising digital skills and increasing employment. She has developed a failsafe 6-step method to make this happen.
Sarah first developed the concept of exporting online for the UK’s trade promotion agency, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and now the Department for International Trade (DIT), where Sarah has mentored over 750 companies and propelled a further 5,000 on their international digital journey through her webinars, seminars, workshops and masterclasses. Other nations to sign up for Grow Global’s ground-breaking services are the trade promotion agencies in New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE), Invest NI (Northern Ireland) and ExporTT in Trinidad and Tobago.
Grow Global continues to innovate and has introduced their flagship accelerator programmes World Class and Grow Global, which companies graduate to after reading her game-changing book, Grow Fast, Grow Global and working through her suite of digital training courses.
Sarah is now following her passion to use her skills to transfer her e-knowledge and skills to coaches in the developing world. She has been training in Kigali in Rwanda as part of a programme run by the International Trade Centre (ITC), a joint UN/WTO agency.
Sarah previously worked for over 10 years for global management consultancies Accenture and Deloitte as a global programme manager. She found out by harsh experience that it is really worth paying attention to ‘all this language and cultural stuff’ if you want to make things happen.
She is also a language enthusiast and is the author of the audio language and cultural learning courses: Teach Yourself Business French, Teach Yourself Business Spanish, Teach Yourself Business Japanese and Teach Yourself Business Mandarin Chinese. These were published by Hodder Education and have sold over 10,000 copies globally.
Sarah has lived and worked in Europe and the USA. She speaks English and French, some German and is learning Spanish in recognition of its emerging role as one of the next world languages. If she goes on to learn Mandarin Chinese, which is her dream, she calculates she will be able to speak to over 50% of the world’s population in one of their official languages!
