My Story

Do you struggle with growing your business or excelling in your marketing role? You’re not sure what to do or where to start, your minds blank, you’ve got deadlines to the point you become stressed. You watch YouTube videos by so-called experts to help, you try to understand but it’s confusing. You Google but it’s no luck it’s just overwhelming. You feel as if you are getting nowhere, you question your abilities and you blame yourself for not achieving your goals or targets - it’s a vicious cycle to the point it brings you down mentally affecting your confidence.

I’m an Award-Winning Qualified Marketing Expert and Business Mentor featured in Huffington Post, BBC and Pure London. Sarah Khan, also known as Sara K, has lead marketing projects with global brands such as Volkswagen Group and more recently supported Architects, Corporate Directors, to Vice Presidents from some of the biggest organisations in the world, Google, Vivienne Westwood to Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Although it hasn't been smooth sailing, as over the years I’ve suffered from severe anxiety and work stress, which soon impacted my entire life.

At the beginning of her career, I was immersed in the face-paced marketing environment, where I had little or no training and to the frustration of managers. Although, in every role, I remained resilient, determined and progressed to managing global projects and senior roles, without the official title and salary. As a result, I developed training projects to support marketing teams and quadrupling profits, whilst reducing staff turnover and moved on to start her digital marketing consultancy with a difference.

Today I uses her expertise to train professionals and business owners in digital marketing and mentor them to be successful in their careers, businesses and become the nurturing leaders the world needs in the 21st century. As a result of her ventures, Sarah has reached over 325 men and women from across the globe in 180 days.
