Sarah Pittendrigh

I joined the team at Simply Bows & Chair Covers Northumberland in 2015, this was a big step for me but Sarah gave me some good advice and lots of support. This was the best move I made and I have not looked back. Thanks to Sarah's guidance and time that she has invested in me, I feel stronger and more confident not only in my work but in life in general. I will contact Sarah and talk to her regarding certain situations and she is always there to listen and offer her expertise, she has been a great help to me and I am truly thankful to Sarah for her time, patience and belief in me

Debbie - Simply Bows & Chair Covers, Northumberland

"Sarah was a friend first and foremost and I was most impressed by her professionalism when I approached her to help me with a turning point in my life's path. Sarah is an extremely good listener and will look at projects from all angles and give help and advice from her perspective. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah as a mentor and indeed will be back in touch with her soon with regards to my next business venture"

Katie Lindsay-Brown

Sarah was asked to support the wedding product here. Right from the first meeting she was professional, personable and down to earth. She found out as much information as possible, including attending events to get a feel for our product first hand and give her the best insight. To follow Sarah wrote a detailed report with some 'quick wins' and mid to long term proposals. Her business knowledge coupled with a practical mindset was just what we required. All in all a great exercise to help us move our business forward.

At a crossroads in my life I was deciding if I was going to remain in employment or take the plunge and run my own business. After researching chair cover suppliers I discoveredSimply Bows and Chair Covers and decided I needed to find out more, I contacted Sarah and arranged a meeting. I was so inspired by Sarah’s story, where she had been, what she had endured and the phenomenal success she made Simply Bows and Chair Covers I just knew I had to be a part of this great business model.
I have now been running my franchise for the last 4 years and I love it. Sarah is very supportive, knowledgeable and I know if I need advice she will always be there at the end of the phone. She has an insight that is unique and she is a truly inspirational lady.

Adele - Simply Bows & Chair Covers, South Wales

"Although I strongly suspect you’d tell me that I needn’t have been in touch, I wanted to reiterate that if ever someone asks you for somebody they can contact or speak to by way of an endorsement of your services, please don’t forget me as I'll happily be that someone.
I hope our paths cross again before too long because I think you’re a brilliant example to budding doubters like me and a flipping great individual too!
Whilst you'll have far better things to do than read this, thanks again for the inspiration you are and always be aware that folks like me, who’ve had the good fortune to meet you, are better for it."

Alan Green - Corporate Photographer

"Having set up my business when I was 23, Sarah's advice and experiences in the wedding industry were a vital part in the success of my Simply Bows and Chair Covers franchise. As a franchisor, Sarah has always been on the other end of the phone to help me with my dilemmas and pass on her experience and business advice..."

Joanne Smith - Simply Bows and Chair Covers Lancashire

"Sarah is everything a successful entrepreneur should be, creative, tenacious with a clear vision on how to develop her business. She never ceases to impress me with her energy, attention to detail and most importantly, is always comfortable leading from the front with her hands on management style..."

"Sarah Pittendrigh was a fantastic addition to our speaking roster at our small business initiative event, #SBS Small Business Sunday 2019. Sharing her journey on building up her business, as well as how to franchise a business, her session proved invaluable for our small business attendees and the feedback has been excellent! Thank you Sarah."

Jess Littlewood - #SBS Small Business Sunday, Theo Paphitis Retail Group

I follow Sarahs business page on social media and when she released her new The I CAN method I jumped at the chance to use it. I love trying to better myself and set goals and this looked like it was going to help a lot- especially with everything changing so much in recent months. Needless to say it did not disappoint. It is very refreshing to put pen to paper and look at things in black and white in front of you. This method has personally helped me so much with my fitness levels by seeing what I CAN do by overcoming the issues I thought I had and by taking some action. I have now used the same method to help me concentrate on my business. By breaking everything down into smaller sections it really makes a huge difference. Thank you so much Sarah and I genuinely now cannot wait to see my future 6 months down the line!

Tracy Turner

I truly believe that I found Sarah just when I needed her. I was looking for somebody to help me out of the ‘rut’ that I found myself in, not knowing where I was going in life, having been made redundant due to the Covid pandemic. When I read Sarah’s story and the adversity that she had dealt with herself, I knew there was so much that I could relate to and Sarah was the person that I wanted to work with to help me. The I CAN method is very powerful, it makes you think about every aspect of your life, even the dark moments that you thought you had locked away forever. What I have learned from Sarah is that you need to address these moments for you to move forward, and that is exactly what Sarah helps you with. The four pillars of the I CAN method means that you have a full end to end methodology. Sarah is personable, an inspiration and is somebody who has been there, done it and got the t-shirt. Sarah will help you with your personal and business goals and is somebody who will make sure YOU live your best life; the life you truly deserve.
