Who We Are

Our Story

Helen & Sarah met at university and both went on to pursue Marketing careers working in a variety of organisations including Boots, GSK, Britvic, P & G, EON, Capital One and Barclays. Together in 2013 they created Amazing If with an ambition to help people have happy careers.

Today they each have squiggly careers, leading Marketing teams in Virgin and Sainsbury’s, combined with Amazing If.

Helen’s values are freedom, growth, energy, knowledge and the best piece of career advice she’s been given run your own race.

Sarah’s values are achievement, ideas, learning, progression and the best piece of career advice she’s been given never live the same year twice.
