BA (Hons) MBA
After spending an endless amount of time living off baked beans, Sarah finally left University in 2003 with two degrees under her belt. Catapulted into the “real world” she had heard so much about from her parents, Sarah found herself working for various commercial, artistic and not-for-profit companies. Throughout this time, Sarah dreamed of building an empire, and her first achievement is TEACH which is now nationally recognised as a successful Healthcare Training Organisation.
However, in December 2005, in what can only seem like a wondrous twist of fate, The Prego Group was born, consisting of Prego Events Ltd (official Conference Organisers for The Orthopaedic & Trauma Alliance) Party Prop Hire and Ego Creative Projects.
The Prego Group combines Sarah’s first degree in the Arts with her MBA. AS THOUGH
SHE PLANNED IT ALL ALONG! Sarah continues to deny this fact, rather drawing attention
to the fact that she has mastered the secret art of making proper Yorkshire Puddings
and concentrating on her hobby of not putting her hand up before she asks questions.
PS. Sarah still hasn’t found the “real world”
