22 for ’22: Celebrating Swindon & Wiltshire’s Most Inspiring Women

By Anita Jaynes on 15 March, 2022

We’re celebrating Swindon and Wiltshire’s most inspiring women to mark International Women’s Day 2022 which this year took place on Tuesday 8th March.

Through our social media channels, we asked our readers which women in our community inspire them and created a list of 22 for ’22. The list is printed in our Feb/March magazine and from Tuesday 1st March, each weekday throughout the month we are profiling and championing each of these fantastic women online and via our social feeds.

Today we put the spotlight on Sara Witham, Founder of Swindon marketing agency Evil empire.

Sara has been an active member of the Swindon and wider South West business community for a number of years working as Marketing Director for Fish Bros, Excalibur Communications and more recently as a Director of her own firm, Evil empire which she established in 2019.

Sara is well-known and loved for supporting many businesses, individuals and causes. Sara has been instrumental in helping many local charities achieve their fundraising goals, getting behind many appeals. She was part of a team at Excalibur in 2014 which raised £50,000 to help build a pioneering cancer centre at Bath’s Royal United Hospital.

As well as being a marketing professional, Sara excels at organising events and has run everything from award ceremonies to corporate events, team building days and festivals which have been held in high regard.

Through her work at Evil empire she gives business owners all the benefits of a marketing department without the hassle, providing everything from initial marketing planning and strategy, through to content, campaigns, social media, training and more.

Sara specialises in creative thinking, giving the clients she works with the inspiration and ideas to maximise their marketing efforts. She loves a challenge and watching her clients grow through using effective content and strategy.

Throughout her career, Sara has also helped clients to win various awards. In 2021, she was behind Landhawk’s award-winning Using Tech to Transform Business entry at the Techies Awards Swindon & Wiltshire.

Outside of work Sara is a busy mum with two little boys.
