Sarah Birken is Australia’s leading sense maker consultant, serving clients locally and overseas in the US and UK. She specialises in helping leaders and boards cut through complexity, create a beacon in the noise for their business teams and people, and getting buy-in for culture and strategic direction at every level in their organisation.
When people and teams can internalise your organisation’s DNA; it’s strategy and culture – they believe it, embody it, so they think and act upon it naturally with ease. Where people are increasingly working away from the traditional corporate headquarters, it’s especially important that they understand the organisations’ strategic objectives and cultural identity – which leads to an environment where people feel a sense of belonging, inclusion, and contribution towards something meaningful and worthwhile – no matter who or where they are.
Sarah works with businesses who are experiencing complexity in all of its different forms that are preventing them from reaching the success they set out to achieve.
