Sara Hawthorn

Managing Director, InFusion Comms

Managing director of a specialist energy PR agency with bases in Leeds and Glasgow. A Chartered PR practitioner with the CIPR, I've been a visiting lecturer in digital marketing at Leeds Trinity University and was cited as one of the Shaw Trust’s top 100 influential people with a disability in 2018. I founded the DisAbility PR Network to tackle the woefully low numbers of disabled people working in PR and to work with agencies to overcome issues around ableism and exclusion of those with disabilities from entering and progressing in PR. I am a mentor to Leeds Trinity Students and Vice Chair of the CIPR's Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Committee and my agency, InFusion Comms, was one of the first in the UK to be awarded The Blueprint at Ally status for diversity in PR. I've worked across a wide range of b2b industries including agriculture, construction, building services, third sector, energy, and sustainability.
