1. I’ve worked with Sarah within my role as Commercial Director at EHM for many years, initially when she was the Marketing Manager at Cornwall Airport Newquay, and over the last few years while she has been running her own freelance business, Burko Marketing.

    Sarah loves working with her clients, she is commercially minded and always plans the best advertising and editorial features across all the Engine House Media publications. With her passion for marketing and advertising, she is easy to work with, professional and always has her client’s best interests in mind.

  3. It has been a real pleasure to work with Burko Marketing over the last couple of years. Sarah has a real enthusiasm for marketing and puts her all into getting great results for her clients.

  4. As a small publication operated by a small number of volunteers we rely heavily on the goodwill of our advertisers in terms of meeting deadlines and providing compatible copy. It has been a pleasure to work with you Sarah, you have always been very efficient, timely and helpful and provided high quality adverts which is much appreciated. You always respond promptly to emails and keep us informed, especially while things have been more unsettled throughout the pandemic. It has been a very smooth working relationship and we are grateful that you and your client support our publication

    Best wishes for the new year at Burko Marketing

  6. Having worked with Sarah for a year as a key contact for our Business Partner, Newquay Airport, we have always been impressed with her excellent communication and marketing skills. Sarah is a consummate professional and has a keen eye for opportunities and innovative strategies which add value to any organisation. She was a delight to work with on both a strategic and operational level and we heartily recommend her to any company who would like to create impact within their business.

    Kim Conchie, Chief Executive and Mel Colton-Dyer, Business Connections Manager Cornwall Chamber of Commerce

  7. It has been a real pleasure working with you Sarah, your ability to make even the most complicated event just happen and run seamlessly is a real skill. It is great to meet someone who is so receptive to new ideas and to demonstrate a real ‘can do’ attitude when we come up with the wackiest of ideas. You have given us the opportunity to push the boundaries with what we can do as well as helping to promote Newquay Cornwall Airport in exciting and innovative ways. It’s also refreshing to work with someone who has a real understanding of how radio works and all the landscape of all local media. I will miss working with you to promote the airport but hope very much that our paths will cross again in the not too distant future.

    Andrea Mercer, DAB Commercial Manager Pirate FM

  8. I worked together with Sarah on marketing and PR activity in Ireland. Sarah demonstrated strong strategic leadership in approaching and working in partnership with VisitEngland, identifying the needs of Newquay Cornwall Airport and building a good relationship with VisitEngland, and other tourism partners and local Irish media, to successfully realise the strategic aims and deliverables. Sarah’s knowledge of campaign planning, media planning, social media and PR is excellent, and Sarah was a delight to work with. I would not hesitate to work with her again in the future!

  9. During the period of time I worked together with Sarah on various projects related to our operation at Newquay, I found Sarah to be very conscientious and always willing to go that extra mile to achieve often very tight deadlines. Sarah completely understands the value and importance of understanding her customers needs and to work within their Corporate guidelines, with particular emphasis on attention to detail. Sarah’s other strength given our extensive network, was her knowledge of the local market and keeping projects focussed.

  10. I have known Sarah for a number of years whilst working for Cornwall Today Magazine, The Cornish Guardian, West Briton and Cornishman group of Newspapers (D.C.Media). I have found Sarah to be honest, reliable, hard-working, conscientious and courteous. Sarah has repeatedly shown her outstanding creative marketing skills, we have worked together on a number of challenging marketing briefs and Sarah has always provided exceptional focus, drive and vision. As a consequence of this, the marketing campaign results have been consistently positive. I would therefore not hesitate to recommend Sarah.

    Jill Bailey, Account Manager, D.C Media

  11. Thanks ever so much for all your help in recent months, it’s been a pleasure working with you regarding the Aer Lingus Regional and Newquay Airport advertising campaigns. Wishing you every happiness and success with your future endeavours. Best of luck and thanks again.

    Kate McGuinness, Marketing Executive Stobart Air

  12. Sarah is an extremely bubbly personality with a real commitment to the projects she undertakes. I found working with Sarah on a number of projects for Newquay Cornwall Airport, that Sarah understood what she wished to implement and communicated this to us clearly as a prospective partner/supplier. She has an all round knowledge on how Sales and Marketing work closely to deliver results for a business.

    Chris Martin - Group Commercial Director, Creative Network

  13. Sarah is an experienced marketing professional who knows exactly what needs to be done. As well as building very positive working relationships that motivate partners, Sarah has a clear sense of direction that always links back to strategic thinking. Sarah developed – and both implemented and oversaw – a sound marketing plan for Newquay Cornwall Airport. Working across the marketing mix, Sarah’s integrated campaign approach included the delivery of a number of successful initiatives, and events, which ultimately increased the brand presence for the airport both in and out of the county.

    Laura Hicks MCIPR, Wild Card PR

  14. All organisations large and small can clearly benefit from marketing themselves more effectively. Sarah brings years of experience to the table and is an enthusiastic and committed professional. Moreover, she is a highly adaptable, savvy marketeer who focuses on getting results.
