Free Women in Business Networking Event
Sarah Hardman – Leadership Coach & Team facilitator
Sarah is a leadership coach (Co-Active CPCC and ICF ACC) and team facilitator who is passionate about working with existing and emerging leaders to bring the best of themselves into their organisations to be authentic leaders that others want to follow.
As her coaching company name, “Boldy-Go” suggests, Sarah has a particular interest in courage and confidence in personal and professional leadership – working with clients to build their realised and unrealised strengths and helping them tap into their natural resourcefulness and resilience. Sarah works with clients to “play big”, challenging them to stretch beyond what they believed was possible.
A qualified NLP Master Practitioner, trainer and facilitator, Sarah works with clients in a range of sectors including Arts/Culture, marketing/media, education and health.
In her 20 year marketing career, which has paralleled her coaching and leadership development endeavours, Sarah has worked for organisations including Coca Cola Schweppes, Macmillan publishing and latterly the British Library where she was Head of Audience Development and Brand. Having worked at a senior level Sarah has experienced first-hand the importance of inspirational leadership both on business performance and on employee engagement.
Finally – although not a big Trekkie fan, Sarah does like Starship Enterprise’s five year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations and of course: to boldly go where no wo/man has gone before!

Nici Jupp – Founder – Talent Gateway
Nici spent many years working in the Telecoms industry in numerous roles from Sales, Marketing and Channel development. She has a passion for learning about businesses and the different sectors in which they operate; what makes them tick, their challenges and how to help them grow. Starting her own business was a natural progression. She loves nothing more than having a positive impact on the growth and development of a business.
Talent Gateway enables her to fulfil two goals. Firstly, to help businesses grow by working with them and encouraging them to think differently about how they recruit and access business support services. Secondly, to enable individuals who want to work more flexibly to find challenging, rewarding work without having to compromise on their work life balance or the type of work they do.
Her hobbies include running and spending time with her family.
