Sarah Neblett-Lindo – Champions for Change
The Champions for Change category recognises industry leaders who drive positive social change within the industry.

Since joining Croud in June 2020, Sarah has championed key initiatives focused on DEI, work culture and career development, which have hugely supported Croud’s exponential growth.
Croud’s CEO & Co-founder, Luke Smith, shared “The impact that Sarah has had on the Croud business over the last 18 months cannot be understated. Throughout the pandemic, Sarah and her team have been a pillar of support within the Croud community, and the initiatives which were developed under her leadership have had a far reaching impact on our global business success. From helping us to retain talent through training and development, to shining a light on Croud’s diversity & inclusion agenda and launching working-groups across the business, Sarah has developed a myriad of ground-breaking initiatives, which have had an immediate, and positive, impact on the agency. ”
