Sam Armstrong was a problem solver from an early age; she had a passion to make a difference, whatever she turned her hand to.
After 16 years of working in the signage industry at various levels, she eventually found the courage to take the leap and form her own company, Make it Happen
The name was born as a result of conversations with several clients about the new venture; whatever the question, the response was always the same: “Sam, whatever you decide to do, you will make it happen!” The company was an instant success. In the second year Sam identified a gap in the industry; impartial and independent advice, support, knowledge and direction simply was not available; without delay, the Make It Happen Education Programme was born.
The programme was developed to support people at all levels and any stage of their career in the signage business. The training allows people the opportunity to learn about new products and services and to discuss applications and general business solutions. The programme also encourages a general sharing of information and ideas between delegates.
Make it Happen is now heading into its’ fourth year and the support that the company can provide to the signage industry is well established. As for the future, for anyone involved in signage – watch this space!
My concept is simple, Make it Happen
"What can I say about Sam that anyone that has dealt with her doesn't already know. Nothing is the answer but if you don't know Sam read on. The first thing I would say is she is always glad to speak to you and nothing is too much hassle, her knowledge is vast but honest and if she hasn't got the answer she invariably knows someone that has. Her response time to emails and phone calls beats most emergency services and she has usually got the answer by that time also. All round a first to go to whenever I have an issue that I can't solve for myself and I have been in the business 25 years. If Sam cant Make it Happen, no one can" Alan Gunter - Hardy Signs
