I’m Sara Gadzik, founder of SmithGadzik. After spending more than 20 years in communications and marketing roles, primarily in the education and not-for-profit sectors, I made the exciting decision to set up SmithGadzik communications and marketing consultancy in 2016.

Throughout my career I‘ve developed relationships with a select group of hugely talented individuals, who now work closely with SmithGadzik to provide a full service marketing and communications agency.

Through this network of PR, marketing and design specialists, SmithGadzik works with organisations to help them improve their results through targeted and fit-for-purpose communications and marketing activity.

My expertise lies in strategic planning, content and editorial, and PR and media activity. From 2005 to 2016, I was Communications Director for the Association of School and College Leaders, with responsibility for all recruitment and marketing. Prior to that I was involved in the start up and growth of the National College for School Leadership, serving in a number of roles including Corporate Communications Manager. Previous roles included working in fundraising and recruitment for a university in the US for six years and as a project manager for a marketing research company.
