Sarah Slaven

Business Development Director, Business Durham


I have a degree in Law & Economics, and an MBA from Durham University. I’ve worked in County Durham for over 20 years, and currently manage a team leading on enterprise promotion and helping businesses to develop and grow in County Durham. Prior to that, set up East Durham Business Service, a public-private partnership.

Why are you a member of ABPC

Having supported ABPC since it first began on an informal basis, I’m really proud to serve on the Board to help develop of a vibrant business community and contribute to its continued success.

Likes about business &/or ABP

It’s great to make connections and be able to engage with a wide range of interesting and inspiring businesses on the largest Business Park in the North East.


Walking and cycling with my family, gardening, watching cricket in the sunshine! Relaxing with a good book and a nice coffee (or glass of something sparkling!) on the rare occasions I get time to myself.
