Sarah Brown

Psst! - did you know?

Sarah grew up in Bolton and went to school with funny men Peter Kay and Paddy McGuiness. Sarah and Peter remained friends for a few years after school and she stars anonymously in his first book as the woman who crashed the car on the garage forecourt where he worked. She only found this out when a close friend phoned her howling with laughter as she recalled the event.

Vital Stats

  • Who or what makes you laugh until it hurts?
    My best friend Jo. She’s better than any abs workout.
  • What would your superpower be?
  • What's the nicest thing anyone ever said to you?
    You’ve changed my world for the better.
  • What's the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?
    Sitting obliviously with my left breast out at my first Police Christmas party. Nobody told me until we were back on parade a few days later. My sergeant asked me if I’d dropped any boobies recently? The whole shift broke down with laughter! Luckily it was before smartphones.
  • What's your mantra?
    Go for it and work out how along the way!

Sarah started her professional life as an officer in Greater Manchester Police Force. It was here that she was first rewarded for her love and passion for making a difference. Sarah received a Chief Constable’s Commendation from the late Michael Todd for her dedication, determination and commitment. And she got a financial bonus to boot (which was unheard of).

Since then she’s had a varied career working within health and wellness, retail and financial services, leading and managing numerous training initiatives.

Sarah has extensive experience of designing and delivering management and talent programmes that are challenging and fun.

She is passionate about people and believes everybody has great potential within them.

Outside of work, Sarah loves a challenge and has completed The Three Peaks, The Great North Run and The Dirty Weekend (the largest assault course in Europe, not a swinger’s getaway in Scarborough).
