What her followers say

“Eloquently outlined the key principles that underpin our mission, and devised a strategy for us to capitalise on existing strengths”

Sarah is a true expert. She has a powerful process and unique intuition that guide the experience of working with her. She tapped into what we´ve been wanting to communicate to our audience for a long time, eloquently outlined the key principles that underpin our mission, and devised a strategy for us to capitalise on existing strengths. Through her insights, tactics and industry expertise, I have gained major clarity about the short and long-term outreach goals of Impacto International. Beyond that, her personable approach and genuine alignment with our values made me feel at ease at all times. I couldn’t recommend her services enough. It’s an investment you won’t regret. We´re forever grateful for your support.

“equivalent of hiring a whole team of experts”

What Sarah offered me is gold-worth! I was amazed by the amount of detailed feedback and super-valuable advice and recommendations she gave me. No aspects were left out! For a solopreneur, the rapport that Sarah provides singlehanded is the equivalent of hiring a whole team of experts to receive the same value. And on this you cannot put a price! She is my "go-to-expert" on branding & marketing.

“didn’t feel like it was all just data and analytics”

During our consultation I appreciated how it was extremely informative and at the same time it was very light. During our discussion, it didn’t feel like it was all just data and analytics, the information presented was relayed to me in such a way that it just felt like friends chatting about how they can help you improve.
