As featured in Huffington Post, BBC and spoken at Olympia London, Sarah Khan, also known as Sara K, I’ve 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. 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 develop innovative social media training programs.

Today I use my expertise to train professionals and business owners in social media 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 my ventures, I’ve been lucky to reach over 325 men and women from across the globe in 365 days.
