Dedicated to providing exceptional results in all her projects, Sally attributes her success to never giving up, passion in all that she does, huge integrity, and a love of new challenges. She first became involved in her profession because of the fast-paced nature of the technology industry, thus providing her with the ability to work in dynamic, challenging and constantly evolving environments. She believes that this has been the foundation and basis to expanding into other industries and her desire to build new portfolios.
With a passion for interiors, past renovation projects and hands on experience in property, she branched out into the Property investment business in order to develop her knowledge and pass on her expertise, sourcing, investing and developing a property portfolio.
With an active and healthy lifestyle it was also a natural progression to become involved in Network Marketing in the Health and Wellness Industry, for a couple of years that was a massive impetus for self development and growth. This has led more recently to more in depth training as a practitioner in NLP, Timeline therapy and light touch hypnotherapy. This has also enabled her to step out of her comfort zone, and also provide mentoring to others in a number of business settings amongst which were a large scale health and wellness industry, publishing and finance. NLP provides a number of great tools to support those arround you, gain greater understanding and rapport in your relationships and navigate troublesome projects, challenges or environments in all aspects of your life and it is this that she is passionate to utilize and empower those that she has the privilage to work with in all capacities.
She is also working on her blog articles, writing a childrens book and has a blog detailing her journey with the long term disease Osteoporosis which she was diagnosed with at 35, after incurring multiple rib fractures in 6 months (21 in total!) It was this illness that catapulted her in to ongoing self development and is evidence that a positive attitude can transform a disabling diagnosis. It is this that drives her to continuously strive to help bring insight, compassion, understanding to people and their surroundings at work as well as their personal relationships, health and wellbeing. She has largely reversed the condition through adapting an alkaline diet, healthy eating and regular exercise in running yoga and pilates, as well as drawing on alternative therapies such as accupuncture, meditation. She has researched the disease extensively and has followed a lot of the insight and knowledge from communities around the world in regards to supplements and diet.
She has also recently been invited to write and contribute for a website that focuses on health lifestyle and managing menopause as there is a strong cross over in the diet she adopted whilst suffering with Osteoporosis and managing pain, migraine and hormone imbalance.
She was featured in Take a Break Magazine (100K readership) in the November Special 2015, and is a Patient champion for the National Osteoporosis Society assisting in highlighting the disesase and sharing her story in government circles (most recently in November 2015 at the Houses of Parliament) - and hopes that this will provide inspiration and support to others, by building knowledge and greater understanding into the disease.
She also writes for Digital Transformation People, The Digital Transformation Network and has recently been listed on the In Touch network of Senior Executives.
In her spare time she loves spending time with family and friends and supporting her favourite charities, BLES, The Mango Tree, Prostate Cancer research, Alzheimers Society and is expanding her volunteer work to Mentor women in business with the Cherie Blair Foundation.
