What we do

We provide inspiring and supportive career, leadership and returner coaching to talented women, either directly or via their employers; helping them unlock their professional potential and shine even brighter. We future-proof organisations by helping them create colourful and inclusive workplace cultures where the best people - even parents! - will do their best work, now and in the future.


Shine Brighter Consulting was founded by me, Sarah Clarke, in 2016.

I have worked in the fields of employee engagement, coaching and organisational and talent development for nearly 2 decades. I am proud to have led the team that achieved the #1 ranking in The Sunday Times Best Companies to work for listings for 2015 and 2016. As a qualified strengths and performance coach, I am also certified to conduct MBTI, Hogan and Gallup’s CliftonStrengths psychometric assessments. Before becoming a freelance consultant and coach, I worked at several fast-paced and dynamic organisations, each one with their own unique and vibrant culture. All of these companies epitomise innovation, passion and creativity and these values have helped shape my own work philosophy. I live in Buckinghamshire with my husband and two young daughters.
