Prior to this her previous roles include:  Business Development Director of a major private dental group (Dr J D Hull & Associates); Operations Manager of a national group of retail opticians (Specsavers). As an operations manager, Sarah’s experience covers everything from turning around under-performing retail branches; through analysing the line-by-line costs of providing services to major clients in order to increase their profitability; to building better websites.
