Sally Storey

Sally is passionate about people leadership and has always focused on attracting, inspiring and developing people and on creating strong teams. She has over 20 years’ leadership experience across all aspects of commercial pharmaceuticals and previously five years in FMCG. She was the first female leader of any pharmaceutical company across the Gulf Co-operation Council. She has a track record of delivering transformational change programmes across different functions and geographies. She has 13 years’ experience operating at board level and is currently also an advisory board member for Skarbek Associates who specialise in assisting organisations to adapt and grow through highly effective strategy implementation.

Sally is currently Chief Operating Officer at Surfers Against Sewage, a national marine conservation and campaigning charity which inspires, unites and empowers communities to take action across a wide spectrum of ocean-related issues from plastic pollution to climate change.

Her degree in Chinese Studies fuelled her love of travel adventure and she has since had the privilege of leading and managing people from over 50 nationalities, of visiting more than 60 countries and of living in six. Change has been a constant for her and her family and, as a serial home mover, she is obsessed with renovation and interior design. She tries to balance her love of food with running, training and dog walking.

We are delighted that Sally is a member of the TLH Advisory Team.

Duncan Adamson - The Leadership High


Duncan Adamson

“If a high can be truly bottled, then we must, as an individual or collective, understand and relate the experience to something tangible that can be repeated and adjusted depending on the challenge ahead. Whether it’s a ski run, conference room or one of life’s wonderful, “wee” challenges”. Duncan Adamson, Director, ISS

We believe the very essence of leadership and decision-making is at the core of every skier, no matter their level. Understanding and using these processes empowers the learner to lead their own path on the mountain, to make their own choices and conquer the challenges ahead.

As instructors and coaches, we move towards understanding psychological and neurological responses to better understand how we guide a developing skier. A change of emotion and understanding by the skier at any moment gives them highs and lows. The emotional lows can never be ignored; they are an essential prerequisite for experiencing the highs. Although we present skiing content to overcome and embrace challenge on the slopes; there is a clear application of this experience to everyday leadership in life.

We use skiing to represent examples of the challenges we face; the ultimate goal being to define a process everyone can follow to lead us through life’s challenges.

Confidence is like a muscle. It is strengthened by use.”
