About the speaker
Sarah's story begins in 1999, where she found herself working on the ‘millennium bug’ for Thames Water, and long before Simon Sinek she was driven to ask ‘why’ and ‘how’ to understand what was critical and why. A career in business continuity blossomed, and would evolve to include disaster recovery, data protection, crisis management, cybersecurity and resilience, at AXA, EY, Fujitsu, The London Stock Exchange Group and Microsoft.
In 2022, Sarah launched her first book to much acclaim: 'Effective Crisis Management' where she shares stories, anecdotes and case studies, about what it takes to be an effective leader in a crisis, and how we can all drive positive change.
Sarah has been voted one of the ‘most influential leaders in UK tech’, as well as one of the ‘most influential and inspiring women in cybersecurity’. She is also passionate about working with SMEs and serves as a Board Advisor for Vaultree, e2e-Assure and ServBlock, to help them navigate their own tech journey.
