Sarah Murray

Behavioural Consulting Lead, Cowry Consulting.

After initially graduating with a BSc in Psychology from the University of Birmingham, Sarah started her working life at an asset management company. It was through this initial foray into the world of finance that she discovered a passion for behavioural economics, and after four years she decided to switch gears and pursue a career that more prominently focused on understanding human behaviour and decision-making. After gaining a Master’s degree in Behaviour Change from UCL, Sarah started working at The Behavioural Architects as part of the Global BE Intelligence team; primarily helping advance their application of behavioural science through research and training, as well as writing articles for a variety of online publications. At the start of the year, Sarah joined Cowry as Behavioural Consulting Lead. It’s Sarah's job to utilise that passion for behavioural science and translate her knowledge and experience into practical business solutions that enhance both customer and employee experience.
