Our Team

Jamie’s personal experience working with a coach in 2016 was so life-changing that he asked himself why more people didn’t know about coaching, or work with a coach themselves. These questions inspired him to co-found Sayge.

Before Sayge, Jamie worked at advertising and digital agencies including Ogilvy and Digitas, in London and NYC, where he led relationships with some of the world’s most iconic companies, including IBM, Johnson & Johnson and Nestlé.
