The skills and experience Sarah has in bringing brands to market is second to none.
Sarah’s marketing career began in 2003 after she graduated with a Masters degree in Brand Promotion. She worked in-house as a marketing manager before establishing, growing and then selling a prosperous marketing agency over a 10-year period.
Always keen for a new challenge, Sarah launched a toy brand and went on to win North East Creative Business of the Year, Export Awards for her work in international markets and a string of toy industry awards.
"A new decade feels like a good time to get back in to the marketing agency game. It’s how I roll, I love the diversity, the clients, the challenges. And so Stick Marketing has been born."
Whether you are looking for a one-off project or a long-term partner, Sarah will dedicate time and energy in a friendly and proactive way, to make sure your project is delivered on time and on budget.

An aptitude for digital tech makes Bev our geeky go-to girl and she’s always keen to get her teeth into a new programme or try out the latest bit of kit in the office.
