Sarah Khan - WeAreTheCity

Sarah Khan | Sara K Digital

Having worked in digital marketing for nearly 10 years, l noticed the rarity of experts, companies who genuinely care for employees and customers beyond financial gain and company politics. How can the UK be the leaders in technology if we aren't providing British SME’s the tools to grow their businesses at honest prices? As a result, SARA K Digital was born.

I serve the hardworking SMEs of the UK and support them to grow their business through online marketing such as social media. My current project provides practical, simple and empowering online marketing training and advice to SMEs - accessible online 24/7 with an expert at hand for further support.

SARA K Digital is an honest business that values each and every stakeholder and gives back to the community because it genuinely cares for people. I practice what l preach as a result, l volunteer my time to mentoring students, young professionals and helping startups who are unable to grow due to personal financial difficulties. Furthermore, a percentage of project profits go directly to educational schemes to help third world countries. And my next venture involves helping children with learning difficulties in the UK.

I believe it’s our duty to inspire and help make the world a better place through our actions for the next generation.
