Born in Zambia, Sarah spent her childhood in the Middle East, before returning home to Cornwall. She qualified as a chartered accountant and has worked in the telco, media, and travel technology sectors, in roles including leading commercial strategy and as a Chief of Staff. She is particularly interested in technology, data, and empowering people.
Sarah is an ESU alumna of the Public Speaking Competition and the Secondary School Exchange programme, through which she spent a year at Moses Brown School, in Providence, Rhode Island. As such, she credits the ESU with giving her ‘a special window to the world, one which represented new horizons and opportunity’. She believes the principles underpinning the ESU: international relationships, quality discussion, the value of engaging with different cultures, ideas and people are as relevant today as they ever have been and is looking forward to using her skills to help the ESU go forward, building an ever-stronger future, with a focus on keeping the organisation lively, vibrant, and relevant for all its members.
