After beginning her career at a PR agency, she moved to Fathom Consulting and her first in-house role. Sara then joined the World Economic Forum in Geneva, working on their prestigious Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters. Sara ensures our brand, expertise and values are effectively projected into the tax sector and beyond.

Most would agree that innovation is a positive force. Indeed, innovation is the life-blood of British industry. But how do our business leaders and those on the front line really feel? Are they able to be as innovative as they’d like? Do they feel there are factors that are holding them back? What helps them innovate and grow?
Learning Lab is a new training programme for all ForrestBrown staff, new and old alike. Newcomers will be able to use the programme to immerse themselves in all things ForrestBrown, and our established tax advisers will be able to access individual modules as and when they would like to brush up on a particular skill.
