Sallee Poinsette-Nash

Founder and vocal pioneer of the importance of being human in business

Sallee Poinsette-Nash is the Founder of Brandable & Co, a multi award-winning, people-brand strategy agency on a mission to make business more human.

Named as one of Sifted’s Top 10 must-follow Influencers in Europe, 20 most influential European Instagrammers 2020, Be Your Own’s Top 12 Women to Watch 2020 and one of the 99designs '14 most important start-up influencers in London' 2018, Sallee is described as one of UK’s leading people-brand experts and a vocal pioneer of the importance of being human in business.

2021 marked the start of a 12-month #stopundersellingyourself campaign to reach one million people in one year to encourage behavioural change and boost confidence. The campaign has already reached over 120,000 people and instigated a win for inclusion and gender equality, as Sallee chose to challenge the Macmillan Dictionary on their definition of ‘undersell’.

For years this had read ‘many women have a tendency to undersell themselves in job interviews’ and in less than 7 days of social media campaigning and correspondence with the Macmillan Dictionary, this now reads “many people”, proving that anyone and everyone can evoke lasting change when they discover things that exclude and no longer fit the narrative.

Sallee’s professional experience consists of over 20 years navigating the world of high-level business and brand building - holding CEO and COO positions, heading up international projects and delivering brand strategy and advisory board roles to a high-profile client list.

At 6’2”, Sallee stands taller than 99.98% of the population and she created #teamtall - an online global community of tall women, which now has over 6,300 members and has been supporting, connecting and building confidence among tall women since 2016.

Sallee is involved in several projects each year which champion women and develop career confidence, either personally or through the Brandable & Co. Pay It Forward initiative, which has proudly supported Rise - women in broadcast, Warwick University’s Girl Boss Society, Be Her Lead and many more female-led initiatives.

Media coverage includes: The Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, BBC, Good Housekeeping, Tatler, Femail, Mail Online, Bustle, Startups Magazine & Woman magazine.
