About me

Bringing passion and energy into the workplace since the year 2000. Throughout my career I've had the privilege of working in a variety of industries; for large organisations and SMEs. I initially started out my career in finance (which I did for 11 years) before discovering my passion for the digital landscape, marketing and journalism. I took a change in direction – I moved to London and re-educated. I currently work as an online editor for a business magazine (soon to be finishing in February 2017) and write a blog in my spare time. My specialities include: copywriting, social media, marketing, storytelling, interviewing, relationship building, motivating people, attention to detail, a creative eye, spotting trends, multi-tasking, project management, meeting tight deadlines – and always positive. Engaging with people rocks my world. Get social with me here >>> about.me/sarah-clark
