I have been part of a mastermind and training group for years. We meet up twice a year for a three-day ‘retreat’.

It’s always incredibly energising and we come away with fresh ideas and knowledge, ready to take on the world again!

Here Sarah shares what she's learned from one of her icons.

As long as you have a business, you have a company culture. You don’t have to have earned a place on a Forbes list or be offering on-site massages and paid lunches before you start thinking about how employees feel about their workplace.
