READ TO LEAD® is a brilliant programme. Easily fitting into the everyday, it drives teams to develop their skills while talking and engaging with each other in ways that they rarely do during their day jobs. Learning, connecting and helping each other grow real-world skills that I saw put into action almost over night. It's the absolute antithesis to the tired old training format.

Exploring 'The E-Myth' and 'Clockwork' made me realise the importance of removing complexity by simplifying what we do. As a result we have moved away from bespoke solutions, focussing instead on specific industries. This has helped define our marketing strategy and even our processes. This will lead to faster deployment and a higher value solution for clients.


Remote working, and a lack of structured learning, affected my team dynamic and development. READ TO LEAD has challenged our thinking, united the team, and is making sure we take action on our ideas. The water-cooler moments are back!


'Drive' has really got me thinking about how I can reward and motivate my team. In particular, I recently recruited for a new position and, given its differing role and resource, I need to give some thought to the best reward and leadership approach.

Living it, loving it.

I've been part of READ TO LEAD® for over a year and I have got an awful lot out of it. The simple 'just one thing' action and take-away creates accountability. It's been of particular value to me as a solo founder.

Matt PhillipsFounder, PPR

I get the juicy nuggets of wisdom in less than 20 minutes, then I get to chat with others and gain the nuggets they have found that bypassed me. It's networking with a learning purpose, which really set's it apart.

Angela PedenFounder, HJP Chartered Accountants

It's a great way to discover new topics and broaden your horizons as we cover books I wouldn't necessarily have read on my own. It's also a great way to get to know people, a networking group that really adds value, and it also doesn't take up too much time.

Sarah's READ TO LEAD® concept is brilliant and has actually got me sitting down to read and think strategically about my business and life.

Lawrence ArchardDirector, Factoree

READ TO LEAD® is a monthly injection of insight and knowledge, not just from the book summaries, but from the community of professionals that Sarah has bought together to discuss them.

Paul ThomasPodcaster & Digital Strategist

I always really look forward to the READ TO LEAD® sessions. I love the relaxed feel of the group, the chance to meet new people, the debate and shared learnings, and of course the blinks [book summaries]!

Guiding your growth

Stay focussed with experienced coaches

Whilst qualifying to become a coach and developing my business, I bought A LOT of books.  But, they often sat on the bookshelf half-read, with ideas noted but not actioned.

Then I came across Blinkist.  An app that condenses non-fiction books into 15min summaries.  I was able to get the salient points of a book, fast.  Removing the overwhelm and pressure on reading and learning.

However, there is no point learning if you don’t do anything with it.  As a coach, my ethos is action-taking, and key to making things happen is peer support and accountability.

READ TO LEAD® was born, to help growth-hungry and time-poor business professionals grow their minds and businesses, faster and smarter, together.

Our mission is to help business professionals keep their hand in on learning.  With a bit of investment, they can make a big impact on their lives and of those they lead.


Nuggets of wisdom from best-selling authors, and nudges for action from a qualified coach. Bitesize is not another newsletter, it’s a personal and business growth accelerator.

Join business professionals like you, to get smarter, faster.  You will also be sent invites to READ TO LEAD® events.
