Sarah Spencer is SOIF’s Next Generation Foresight Practitioner (NGFP) Award and Retreats Coordinator. Sarah manages the award process, outcomes and the NGFP community. She also leads the organisation of the annual SOIF Retreat and high level events.
Sarah joined SOIF in 2018, after having a career break to start a family. Before that, she worked for two years at the Department for Education, in the Sure Start and Early Intervention Unit. There, she was part of the team setting up and monitoring children’s centres as well as organising events around early interventions for very young children.
Before joining the DfE, Sarah spent ten years (2000-2010) working in the Cabinet Office as part of the Performance and Innovation Unit, and in then the Forward Strategy Unit based in 10 Downing Street. These two then merged into the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit. Sarah’s roles included running the administrative teams on strategy projects and organising press conferences, presentations, and staff events.
Outside work, Sarah is kept busy with her three young sons. She also enjoys music, being creative, the outdoors, and keeping happy.
