Tara Sawyer

Internal Communications Manager

Location icon United States

I started writing stories in the third grade. Over the years, I've cultivated my innate ability and passion for writing into a thriving career as a writer, editor, and corporate communicator.

I have 15+ years' experience in the communications field. I started out as a copywriter for an integrated event marketing agency, creating experiential marketing campaigns for IBM, Cisco Systems, and Motorola. I then moved over to the client side, developing marketing communications for a healthcare IT company called MEDITECH.

In 2016, I felt the pull to explore a new and growing area of business communications – internal communications. I approached my management team at MEDITECH and presented a case for why we needed a dedicated internal communications manager. Six months later, my executive team realized the value of having a dynamic, integrated internal communications strategy and promoted me to the role of Internal Communications Manager.

Since then, I have led the editorial and communications strategy for Dell Technologies. As lead writer and managing editor for internal channels, I developed and executed engaging content and programs to keep team members connected, informed, and inspired.
