We sell a packet of Moxie product every thirty seconds. Curious yet? With the crazy idea to put tampons in recyclable tins so that they would stop rolling around in my handbag, my business partner and I took on a stagnant, mature FMCG category dominated by large multi-nationals, and launched a true makret disruptor. For the last (almost!) 14 years, I’ve seen our Moxie brand of women’s personal care through every step of its life cycle, from conceptualisation right through to commercialisation and have sunk my teeth into anything from packaging and product design, to ad campaign development to customer relationship management with some of the world’s biggest retailers. I understand every element of what it takes to not only bring a brand to life, but to insulate it from tough competition and secure it for future business growth and success. Moxie products have sold millions upon millions of products in various markets around the world; I’ve made a heap of bad decisions and mistakes, but just as many good ones, too. I’ve done it for myself and I can help you do it, too (the good stuff, that is!). Contact me if you’re keen to learn more about: - How to get started (How do you know if it’s a good idea or not? Where do you get help?) - What it takes to build a brand from scratch - How to launch your product into major retail or online - Brand strategy - Marketing strategy (I’m a Marketer by trade!) - Entrepreneurship - New product development - Exporting, operations and logistics - Corporate Social Responsibility - Leadership - Life/work balance Some other cool stuff I’ve done/do that might be of help... - Telstra Young Business Woman of the Year 2014, VIC - Westpac/AFR ‘100 Women of Influence’ 2014 - Entrepreneur’s Organisation Board member 2015 – 2018 (inclusive) - Co-founder and champion of the ‘Pads for Pads’ initiative - RMIT Student Mentor - Regular public speaker

I have worked in a number of retail businesses (some small and some bigger) across Australia, UK, US and Europe, running e-commerce, marketing and digital teams. Each has had very different challenges and opportunities: how to grow traffic, how to make sure we get a return shop, how to improve what the customer thinks or feels when they shop with us. More often than not, this comes down to the catch all of customer experience. My expertise is in helping to join the dots between all the different marketing, digital and promotional activity and create a coherent plan and approach for customer experience, then making sure we have a way to measure it and learn from it. I'm practical and down to earth and I really enjoy learning about different businesses and helping where I can.

Funtrepreneur, Speaker, Foodie, and Lawyer. My partner and I started Matcha Maiden when we fell in love with matcha during a traditional tea ceremony in Japan. After returning to Australia, we realised there was a gap in the market for an affordable, accessible, easy to use matcha product and decided to develop one ourselves. At first we launched Matcha Maiden as a hobby, but it quickly took off and we now have stockists across Australia, UK, Hong Kong and the US. Last year we opened Australia's first specialty matcha cafe, Matcha Mylkbar in Melbourne, showcasing this vibrant green superfood as well as a world leading, innovative plant-based breakfast and lunch menu. As well as Matcha Maiden and Matcha Mylkbar, I also run a successful blog and instagram account Spoonful of Sarah, as well as enjoying a daily yoga and meditation practice. Life is busy, but I would love to provide advice to you where I can.
