Cara Sayer – How to Invent a Bestselling Product and Brand
Session is available:
Cara Sayer is a straight-talking entrepreneur and inventor. A popular speaker at
events, she tells it like it is.

globally, 2014 saw Cara getting divorced and realising that her business was not

Since 2016, Cara has more than tripled her turnover and doubled profit and her

As she frequently gets asked how she has done it, Cara started holding small
workshops to teach other independent product brand businesses how to increase
their sales on Amazon with ’Make It Market It Sell It’.
Cara loves passing on to other owners of small businesses what she has learned,
sharing the real ups and downs of running and growing a business.
