ABOUT SARAH FEENEY

You work with me not someone else

I've worked with some of the world's most innovative brands, creatives, mavericks and trailblazers.
If you're one of these, read on...

About sarah feeney
Sarah-and-her-Jacket_V1-Web-Res-for-Review.jpg

If you’re looking to break a new market —especially the US— or increase your fanbase to create more sincere customers for your brand or service, that’s what I do.

 

I enable start-ups to take charge, assist well-established brands reconnecting with themselves and guide growth and innovation.

 

But what I do best, is create and grow a loyal and sincere following for brands I’m passionate about.

 

My approach is first to identify the brand essence, its relevance and what makes it sincere. I then leverage these, its culture, stories and ideas to connect to audiences on a more emotional and creative level.

 

I formalise this strategy in brand books, playbooks and blueprints, and create tools to amplify that relevance to a broader audience.

 

This helps brands scale with intent and purpose and win new fans —the best advocates a brand can have. 

 

It’s a strategy that’s worked for some of the world's most iconic and influential brands.

More about those, later.

 

Creating fans in new markets is a specialism with a particular focus on the USA.

 

As a recognised innovator in nomadic living (yes, I spent 10 years living out of a suitcase with only 2 pairs of socks) I've access to 40 global audiences, an enviable professional footprint, network and capsule wardrobe.

 

My industry-recognised knowledge fused with hands-on experience delivers bespoke, results-driven work that has impact, longevity, and integrity whilst remaining accountable to both sales and the community.

 

I work across diverse sectors, including health and wellness and the alcohol beverage industry and am available as a freelance consultant on a long and short-term basis. 

 

Let's talk.

Why you can trust me

I work with diverse premium brands, fusing insight and best practices for all sectors, with over 12 years of experience working with spirits and beer brands.

 

I offer cultural branding and marketing with accountability and remarkable 360º brand expertise made available to everyone—from initial ideas to global consumer reach.

Bespoke solutions 

I pledge all services and work will be specific to the needs of your business and brand ambitions. 
No cookie-cutter approach here.
 
Accountability

You’ll work with me, not somebody else, anytime you need me.
We'll set goals and targets and I'll stick to them.
 
Value

This work values sincere, loyal relationships and interactions that treat fans like friends, not customers. 
 
Expertise

I’ve dedicated 25 years to building some of the world's most culturally relevant, famous and innovative brands in over 40 global markets. 
 
Holistic approach

We evaluate on a day-to-day basis and act with agility and flexibility in line with an ever-changing landscape.

 

How can I support your business?

This work is for you if:

  • The brand has a cult following but where's the growth? 

  • Teams don't understand the brand approach

 

  • You need industry-recognised tools and documents for third-party collaborations

  • Your structure grew organically and needs to make sense as an organisation

  • Fans struggle to navigate interactions, getting lost in silos  

  • There's a need for one unified voice; people in the organisation describe the brand differently 

  • You're a brand or marketing manager, brand founder, or entrepreneur, you're starting, getting going, refreshing or growing...
