Sarah commenced her career in Hobart, Tasmania in administrative roles and was thrown into the world of minute taking her very first job. She moved to Sydney in 1998 and held various positions within the Government, Finance, and Property sectors where she honed her skills.
Sarah founded Meetings Into Minutes in November 2016 after recognising a gap in the market to provide minute taking services to businesses who were wanting an independent element to their Board and Committee meetings. Starting from a zero client base and ‘seeing how things would go’ for six months, she has grown the business into a thriving entity and is now servicing more than 45 companies from many different backgrounds.
Sarah diversified her business when she was contacted by a number of people to teach them how to take minutes, and her Masterclass was created. Her aim was to deliver a course that showed a hands-on approach to minute taking and to pass on her knowledge of minute taking to those who have had no formal training.
