Sally Colwell has over 25 years experience in Sales and Marketing at IBM, both nationally and internationally, followed by a Business Development role at Save the Children. She is heavily involved with teaching Business English to non-native English speakers.

Sally’s excellent foundations come from a good degree in engineering and an apprenticeship with Metal Box, where she worked for several years. Her move to IBM saw a broadening of experience into product and commercial areas, where she helped companies with complex change initiatives on an international basis. Sally’s clients benefitted over many years from Sally’s strong project management focus, as well as her meticulous attention to detail, strong management and team building skills.

The move to a business development role in the UK and Africa for Save the Children saw a further broadening of Sally’s experience where her problem solving and team building skills were used to effect improvement in many lives. Her strong communication, mentoring and training skills were developed still further with her work teaching Business English in London.
