GGI welcomes Sarah to the team

25 April 2022


We’re delighted to welcome Sarah Cornwell to the GGI team as our new events manager.

Sarah previously worked as an events manager for various pharmaceutical firms. Her most recent role was with a medical device company, where she led on the organisation of educational events for the NHS.

Sarah discovered her love for event management while studying marketing at Anglia Ruskin University, where she achieved a first-class degree. After completing a graduate programme in product development, Sarah started her career with an events and venue-finding agency.

In this role, she organised a variety of national and international events, including annual conferences, training sessions, advisory-board meetings, senior leadership meetings, Christmas parties and everything in between. As manager of the pharmaceutical team Sarah developed her account management skills as well as knowledge of the events industry.

In 2018, Sarah joined a medical device organisation, where she spent four years developing her project management skills, leading on multiple event projects simultaneously, which honed her organisational skills, keen eye for detail and ability to problem-solve and work well under pressure.

When the pandemic hit in 2020, Sarah pivoted all events to the digital world. Although she had never run a digital event before, Sarah quickly adapted to ensure her NHS healthcare professional clients could still access educational training and events.

Outside work, Sarah is an animal lover. As well as having several pets of her own, she also volunteers for the Cinnamon Trust, supporting people with the care of their animals when they may not be able to do so themselves. She has also been involved with other charities including the Alzheimer’s Society and Prostate Cancer UK, both of which are close to her heart.

Family and friends mean everything to Sarah and her ideal day off would be spent with loved ones at home watching a good crime documentary or binge-watching Netflix. Sarah also enjoys travelling and exploring cities – her favourites include New York and Rome.
