About Sarah.

Sarah began her marketing career in agencies with clients such as P&G, Heinz and Umbro.

In 2006 she joined private equity backed GHD. As Global Brand Director and a shareholder, she was part of the team who grew the business to a £300m exit in 2013.  

More recently, Sarah has worked in senior interim roles and latterly as a marketing consultant, mentor and trainer. Her experience spans a range of clients in financial services, real estate, health & fitness, technology, hospitality and professional services.

Sarah is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (FCIM) and a Chartered Marketer. She also runs the SME Marketing Academy.

"Great marketing thinking is sadly not always the norm.  Businesses need to stop chasing the silver bullet and start applying rigour and discipline to their marketing. The best marketers don’t start the journey until they’ve established the map. Sound marketing planning is the cornerstone of business growth."

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

  • By following these tips, you can make sure you’re noticed on LinkedIn and start building the professional connections you need to further your career.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
