Founder, Speaker and Writer
6'2 Londoner, dog lover & freespirit
I've always been all in or all out and I believe that if you're privileged enough to get to live a life here on planet earth, you may as well go all in! Human connection, experiences and integrity matter to me, whilst people fascinate me, travel energises me and kindness has a special place in my heart.
My work, creativity and human potential have always been my passion and it was key to escaping a harsh start in life. Since then, I've notched up over 20+ years in the world of high-level business and brand building. Career highlights include CEO and COO positions, international projects and advisory board roles to a high-profile client list. I've worked with some incredible people and learnt a lot along the way but the collective experience has brought me to exactly where I'm supposed to be.
I set up Brandable & Co. to scale what I do - building, shaping and aligning human brands for people all over the world. Loosely defined, a personal brand is a way of establishing and consistently reinforcing who you are and what you stand for in your life and in your career. Brandable & Co. exists to bring people to the forefront of careers, companies and corporate organisations because we can no longer continue to operate in a linear B2B / B2C world when it comes to business. People buy people and all relationships are human to human.
The essence of being human is not to strive for perfection, yet many people and companies want their brands to reflect some glorified, perfected image of themselves. These brands have no texture, they're shiny and there's nothing to connect with. Imperfection is perfect. It's human and the world needs more of it. We want to see people. As they are, with character, stories and life experience. These are the brands that have humanness at their core. They're sticky. They are the ones people connect with, trust and recommend to others.
My clients are people - people with careers, people with dreams, people who run businesses and people who work in the corporate world. People are at the heart of everything and they have the power to change the world for the better. I champion authenticity and humanness because it's important, it's what makes each of us different and difference is what makes the world more interesting!
In other SPN news... Growing to 6'2 at the age of 14 left me standing taller than 99.988% of the human population, which had an impact on my self-esteem. Determined not to let a lack of body confidence get in the way, I embarked on a self-prescribed 'My Tall Year 2016' where I committed to 12-months of saying yes to all things tall. The experience was random and life-changing but somewhere along the way, I learned that it's easier to love your difference if you can find a place where you're the same and so #teamtall was born - a like-heighted global community of over 3k women.
I love to travel, I'm eternally curious and I ask a lot of questions. I'm an introvert with social skills and if Myers Briggs is your thing, I'm INFP. I live in West London and my house move count is currently up to 38. I married my husband Andy in Bangkok on 11.11.11 and changed my name by deed poll - making me the only Sallee Poinsette-Nash in the world. Nature amazes me, especially the ocean, and although I love all animals, my 14 year-old French Bulldog, Lou Lou, is by far my favourite creature on the planet!
I'm an open book so if there's anything you'd like to know, please ask and to save any awkward moments later, you pronounce it Sal·lee·Poyne·set·Nash!
