Sarah Churchward Norton
I’m Sarah, I’m a creative intelligence and innovation + strategy expert; I help simplify the complex through creativity and communication.
I uncover, not just what your emergent potential is (as an organisation or individual), but how you can bring it to fruition. It’s all about getting truly curious – and creative around your purpose; your mindset; and what’s in the mix, to then create effective roadmaps that align to your values and your intended outcomes.
My magic is bringing design-led innovation and strategy into the sphere of creativity (think curiosity, imagination, intuition, leadership, mindfulness and play).
I’m passionate about people getting to do what they are hungry for – and as such, my job is eagerly to help you ditch what isn’t useful and to create what is and a means to delivering those outcomes.
