What people say about Susie and her mentoring...
"Susie has a manner which is encouraging and challenging in equal measure, building from strength rather than weakness in existing strategies or experience. I continue to consider her one of my best advisors, personally and professionally, as her ability to listen and then quickly get to the heart of any matter is superb."
Fiona Duffy, Director of Development, Murray Edwards College
“It’s always a pleasure to work and talk with Susie; her thoughtful approach, combined with her breadth of experience, is both reassuring and thought provoking."
Karen Horn, Deputy Director of Development: Alumni Engagement, Open University
“I have loved working with Susie over the past few months. Her wealth of experience in fundraising, relationship-building and leadership has been invaluable to our sessions and I have felt hugely supported both through our conversations and brilliantly articulated follow-up. As a coach she is thoughtful, thought-provoking and challenging, and seeks to get the very best out of her clients, both through her knowledge and insight, but also through her energy, drive and humour.”
Frances Milner, Executive Director of Philanthropy and Partnerships, Cancer Research UK
