“I had this split-second moment where I thought if I say yes, I will end up working for Take That…”
Sarah-Jane Heath (known in the business as SJ) spent many years at the top of her profession, travelling the Globe with one of the UK’s most successful boybands, Take That, at the height of their comeback. Liz Taylor finds out the incredible chain of events that catapulted SJ into the world of showbusiness 21 years ago, and how she is now looking to inspire others to have the courage to make a similar ‘return on opportunity.’
Liz Taylor’s 30-year career in event planning has built an impressive portfolio of events, including celebrity weddings, charity fundraisers like Children in Need with Gary Barlow and huge gala dinners such as Winter White Gala at Kensington Palace for HRH Duke of Cambridge, as well as the Manchester United Champions League winning after party in Moscow and Coronation Street’s 40th anniversary celebrations. During lockdown in March, with the events industry on hold, she turned her attention to launching her own consultancy and realised a lifelong ambition in launching her own podcast.
