50 Women of Influence – Sarah Colgan

Sarah Colgan, Along Came a Spider

Sarah Colgan is Director of Along Came a Spider and has poured her heart and soul in 2018 into creating the 20X20 campaign.

Twelve months ago she had an idea to bring together sporting bodies, athletes and potential commercial backers to create content that would inspire a greater sense of urgency about giving credit and equality to Women’s sport.

That has come to life as one of the most ‘bought into’ campaigns in Irish sport for a long time.

It’s in her background as co-founder with Heather Thornton of Along Came a Spider, a content agency in Dublin

Prior to launching that in 2015 she had been a successful TV producer with MTV, the BBC and then at RTÉ.

It was there that she produced RTÉ Primetime contribution to The Gathering and The Secret Millionaire for which she was IFTA nominated.

50 Women of Influence in Irish Sport 2018 is brought to you by Sport for Business in partnership with our friends at Liberty Insurance.

Over the coming days, we will identify more leaders on and off the field of play. They will include those who are role models in terms of their abilities and what they have achieved. They will come from teams and individual sports, from sponsorship partners, from the media, from the administrative corridors of power and from places where influence may be subtle but no less powerful.

We want your voice in who the remainder should be. Who do you come across in your working life within sport, or in your position as an observer, that you feel deserves recognition.

Contact us today Quoting Women in Sport 2018 Nomination to let us know who you think should be joining us.

This year we will be inviting each of our nominated 50 to join us at our Annual Women in Sport Conference, hosted this year in the studios of RTÉ on Wednesday morning, December 5th.

We will be unveiling the line up of speakers we have joining us over the coming weeks and you can book one of the limited places available to join us by clicking below.

We will also be publishing this year’s Women of Influence list, together with other interviews and content relating to the cause of promoting Women in Sport in a commemorative booklet.
