Meet the trainer: Sarah Jordan

Multi-award-winning entrepreneur Sarah is founder and CEO of Y.O.U underwear, a sustainable underwear business recently certified as the top-scoring B Corp in the UK and the world’s highest-scoring fashion brand.

Her previous experience includes more than 25 years in senior leadership roles across the not-for-profit, commercial and publishing sectors, and leading her own strategic digital consultancy business. Sarah was volunteering in Uganda in 2016 when she learned of the challenges women and girls face in not having access to underwear. From that, she set up Y.O.U underwear as a social enterprise, trying to change lives one pair of pants at a time.

A qualified neuro-linguistic programming practitioner and coach, and trustee of the charities Smalls for All and The Beam Foundation, Sarah has run a positive change agency since 2013, helping women achieve success in all areas of their lives.
