Mission & Values

We Believe

We believe good communications has the power to change the world. By communicating complicated ideas simply, you can open people’s hearts and minds to new ways of thinking and feeling, ultimately inspiring them to do and feel good.

Respect

Everyone has their own experiences, stories and beliefs. And everyone deserves compassion and respect.

Curiosity

Approach the world with curiosity, and an open heart and mind. Ask lots of questions. Listen

Risk

Get out of your comfort zone. Go on adventures. Take risks. Nothing is guaranteed and life would be boring if it was. See failures and challenges as a chance to learn and grow.

Honesty

Be honest with yourself and with others. Speak your truth. Act your truth. Say what you mean. And mean what you say. Be who you are, not who you think you should be.

Communication Matters

For you, for me and everyone else

Words matter. Presentation matters. Design matters. Personally and professionally. How something is written, presented, and designed can make all the difference. Between a government getting the support or protest of its citizens. A business booming or closing. A couple staying together or separating. A community coming together or falling apart. A war starting or ending. Every individual and organization’s communications have the potential to have a huge impact on those around them.

The field of communications is always changing and advancing too – with new technology, trends, and possibilities. That’s what makes working in this field challenging, fascinating and fun. That’s why the Sarah & Company Communications team love what they do. And that’s why you need to invest in your communications.

Not investing in you communications will leave you far behind your competitors, and out of touch with your clients. And the more you invest in your communications upfront, the fewer issues and problems you’ll be forced deal with in the future. 

It’s about communication. It’s about honesty. It’s about treating people in the organization as deserving to know the facts. You don’t try to give them half the story. You don’t try to hide the story. You treat them as – as true equals, and you communicate and you communicate and communicate.
