About Sarah Forster

I joined the Island Innovation team in June 2020. My role involves managing the conference programmes for our virtual events, including the Virtual Island Summit and the Island Finance Forum. Additionally, I work on our media and PR activities which involves curating partnerships, outreach and writing communications, both for Island Innovation and for our client EnergyX.

What I love most about Island Innovation is working in an international team who are all brilliant at what they do and all share a passion for sustainability. It is very rewarding to be a part of a team that promotes sustainable development and is involved in projects that are helping to make a positive impact on a global scale.

Since studying Media & English at the University of Surrey I have worked in the events industry. My roles have involved working on a variety of events and exhibitions in the fields of oceanology, rotorcraft and renewable energy, all with a link to promoting sustainability and a greener future.

After living and working in London for a number of years, in 2020 I moved back to Dorset with my partner and daughter. I grew up in Dorset surrounded by fields, and have fond memories of living in the countryside close to the ocean. I’m thrilled I can raise my family here.

Surprising fact: I was a “runner” on an ITV programme exploring the changes the seasons bring to the British landscape.
