‘It’s rare that you come across a Wellbeing, Health and Safety professional like Sarah! I had the pleasure of seeing Sarah for the first time at Posturite’s Workplace Health Symposium, where she was a presenter. As a Wellbeing, H&S professional, I was inspired by her standout approach to H&S and her focus on wellbeing, which has influenced my delivery of H&S in the workplace. Sarah is a great asset for any business looking to improve their health and safety practice as well as increase employee engagement and productivity.’
‘I worked with Sarah in Australia in 2000. Even back then, she was exceptional at anything she did. We reconnected in London in 2002.
Sarah set up her boutique Wellbeing, Health and Safety consultancy in 2011 and has continued to acquire vast amounts of knowledge since then, even going on to study psychology. I was so impressed by her technical knowledge and business acumen that I acquired her consultancy services several times to provide solutions to businesses I worked with.
Sarah’s greatest strengths are that she is authentic, deeply understands people, and is a brilliant, engaging trainer. Her sense of humour and excellent communication skills immediately put people at ease, and people enjoy working with her. She is a thought leader and a real talent in her field, and my go-to person for all things Wellbeing, Health and Safety.’
‘Sarah joined my Health, Safety and Wellbeing team to support our audit and transformation of the Group Corporate Safety Centre of Expertise. Initially joining to undertake an independent audit, Sarah quickly got to grips with the large organisation and the complexity of operations across our global operations.
As Interim Group Head of Safety, Sarah:
• Audited and assessed our risk management approach, working with me to implement and track risk mitigations, reporting to our Group HSW Forum and the Board
• Conducted an independent audit and delivered a Problem Diagnosis to key senior leadership, formulating a detailed action plan and assembling working groups
• Convened a Safety Leads Forum, which cohesively brought the macro and micro areas of 7 separate businesses together
Sarah’s persuasive coaching style got results. A calm head under pressure, she takes charge and thrives in a crisis. She anticipated our needs and communicated them well to both the senior leadership team and on the ground staff alike, and people trusted her easily. In addition, she has phenomenal technical knowledge, which she breaks down into language appropriate to whichever audience she’s dealing with.’
‘I worked with Sarah when she was acting as Interim Head of Safety at BT. She has a bright, bubbly personality and is great to work with. Sarah is highly intelligent and well versed in safety and risk management embedded within a strong knowledge base of health and wellbeing. This great mix of skills ensures that information and guidance are communicated at the right level and understood clearly.
Sarah is passionate and insightful in understanding and explaining behaviour and how this affects wellbeing, health and safety, and utilises her psychology knowledge, ensuring stakeholders are engaged throughout the process.’
