SARAH BOLAM

“Sarah is the complete PR: great contacts, great company, great understanding of what makes a story.

It’s being totally taken care of; I’m having it Bolammed’.”

During these years, she was responsible for the PR and promotion of some impressive brands, including Kuoni, Kuoni World Class, Travel Collection, Voyages Jules Verne, Kirker Travel, Journeys of Distinction, Elegant Resorts, Thomas Cook Signature, Thomas Cook Tours and Cresta.

“Sarah is pretty unique in my opinion. Personality wise, she fizzes and bubbles enthusiasm and passion for what she does. She's a very skilled PR professional with outstanding and longterm contacts amongst the UK travel press and industry at large. She has a knack of making everyone feel at ease - her natural warmth and empathy bring out the best in people and she's a joy to work with… I would entrust any element of PR to Sarah with 110% confidence.”
