Sarah Beard
TAKE 3 FOR THE SEA, Australia
After 25 years working as a producer in film and television production making content that celebrated our oceans or raised awareness around its decline, Sarah accepted the role as CEO of Take 3 for the Sea. Sarah's journey with Take 3 started in 2013 when she became increasingly aware of the insidious plastic problem in our oceans and its impacts on marine wildlife. Initially joining Take 3 as a volunteer, Sarah developed and launched the Take 3 Surf Life Saving Clubs Project and served on the organisation's Board of Directors while continuing her film and television career. Sarah셲 connection with Take 3 continued, with co-founder Tim Silverwood featuring in her award-winning ocean conservation film, BLUE in 2017.
Aligning with BLUE셲 theatrical release in October 2017, Sarah and the BLUE team developed and implemented a 3-year multi-faceted impact campaign, which included over 65 partners from the not-for-profit, education, government, philanthropic and private sectors in Australia, the Pacific Region, Europe and North America. The BLUE education curricula has been used by over half a million Australian school kids, and the film and its outreach won the Banksia Foundation Sustainability Media Award for its contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Armed with a total commitment to protecting our oceans and marine life, Sarah's love of engaging people in a movement for change, coupled with her financial and project management skills from over 25 years in the film industry, equips Sarah with an extensive and diverse skillset to lead the Take 3 team. 쏧 am extremely excited about the global impact we can make with Take 3.

Over 12 years marketing experience in luxury beauty and lifestyle brands in global markets made me understand what truly matters: how you do things and people. A fantastic product needs to have a story, but above all needs to have a positive impact.

I셫 a big believer that passion and commitment will help fight challenges, but its on us as individuals to start acting and making the necessary changes that will inspire others. Today I셫 proud to be the Marketing Director at Ecoalf, where we are cleaning the ocean every day, we are fighting every day to stop using natural resources in a careless way and we are educating and inspiring people sharing our knowledge.
