Sadie went self employed at 24, starting her first management consultancy company, and since then, she has been one of the youngest freelance female management consultants in the UK, working with a range of large organisations across the world.
She specialises in transformational development for individuals and organisations, and with a background in strategic HR, organisation re-design, change management, and leadership development, she has applied her fresh thinking and innovative approach to help organisations such as Marks & Spencer, RBS, the NHS, and a range of Councils and Universities disrupt the way they operate and develop their practices.
Over the past 10+ years she has started 5 companies, coached CEO’s, trained over 10,000 managers, spoken in front of audiences of 800+ people, done stand-up comedy, and launched a youth development social enterprise.
Sadie is now Director at Sharp Transformations Limited (a consultancy managing complex transformational development for individuals & organisations), holds Non-Executive Director positions in strategically innovative organisations, mentors not-for profit organisations to help them become more sustainable, and runs a social enterprise helping disadvantaged teenagers learn entrepreneurial skills.
She has been labelled a “disruptive futurist”, and enjoys pushing the boundaries of traditional thinking by using her varied experiences to disrupt practice and provide innovative yet practical alternatives through keynote speaking and publishing thought articles.
