Business development expert and entrepreneur Sara Tye has celebrated two major milestones.

As the founding and managing director of redheadPR, 2018 marks the company’s 15th year in business.

And Sara celebrated her 50th birthday last month. She chose to celebrate by spending time with her friends and family, and reflecting on all she has to be thankful for in business and life.

Celebrations for Sara’s recent double milestone took place at Marco Pierre White’s Bardolino restaurant in Swindon.

Sara took the opportunity at this double celebration to raise awareness of skin disease, asking guests at her birthday to donate to the British Skin Foundation - a charity very close to her heart.

She managed to raise £100 at the brunch for the charity.

Sara said: “It’s important to celebrate these milestones.

‘As my 50th birthday

coincided with redheadPR turning 15 years old, I

thought it appropriate to celebrate.

‘It’s been a tough few years, from fighting to keep my business going through the recession, to moving back to Swindon after over 20 years in London.

‘It’s important to reflect.

‘To look back as well as forward, and be thankful for what you have.

‘To me, that is my family, friends and business.”

Acting as a mentor to

start-up companies across the UK and internationally, Sara has helped businesses increase their revenues,

reduce overheads and use better working practices – to

this end becoming more profitable.

The 15th birthday of redheadPR allowed Sara’s team to celebrate their successes past and present.

They have been

providing online strategies and business development techniques and will continue long to do so.

Sara is one of the leading businesswomen in the UK, standing amongst the top 500 experts in public relations and business development.

Across her ever-growing enterprises, she’s seen the unstoppable growth of her own business, become the chair of Swindon Triathlon club, and developed a significant property portfolio.
