She carries with her, her own wide experience of the world, living in Britain, in countries across the Middle East, and in New Zealand, together with her own heritage. Without hesitation Sarwat offers her skills and her leadership, ready also to give articulate expression of faith, when the opportunity or need arises."

“Sarwat is objective, nuanced and brave. She is unafraid to tackle difficult issues head on and does so in an open, inclusive and thoughtful manner so as to provoke thought; enabling people to address issues by looking at them in ways that they had perhaps not previously considered. I have found her to be a much needed critical friend."
