Susan was instrumental in preparing Secret Cinema to scale its production capability, making it more attractive to the TodayTix Group as an acquisition.

I always found Susan's can-do attitude a positive force for governance in the early days and in the "start-up" phase of our school.   She was generous and ambitious in her support, and had a very clear insight into the experience of the boys and the realities of running an inner-city boys school. She always pitched the right level of challenge and support, and there is no doubt that without her steer and enthusiasm, the development of the school's extended curriculum would not be nearly as robust and vibrant.

Susan was quickly able to assess the company and culture and suggest great strategic ideas which she was able to translate into detailed actionable plans. She was extremely diligent, hard working and had great problem solving skills, coupled with the ability to listen.

Brought in to provide overall structure and program design, Susan ended up as one of the three key executives in the entire project. Her critical thinking, tireless constructive probing of issues, and her creative solutions to seemingly intractable problems were all essential to the success that our rebranding ultimately enjoyed, and during the project itself, her calming presence helped us all get some sleep.

Ernie Cormier, former Virgin Media CCO, Founder and Principal at Acadian Partners LLC

Susan drove a … programme with multilevel complexity, extensive stakeholders, fractious governance and very high profile external partners for over three years to smooth and successful completion. She can operate at almost any level, from domain specific detail to strategic synthesis, and is a strong manager, building and leading a very high quality delivery team. She needs very little guidance, … her commitment and energy is beyond reproach.

Max Alexander, former TalkTalk Executive Director of TV and CEO of Secret Cinema

Susan quickly grasped the content in all streams of work and sensitively adapted her approach and techniques as the negotiation progressed and as suited to individuals, to ensure that we met our objectives. She worked comfortably at all levels of the three organisations, including CEOs, CFOs, Directors and engineers; her ability to innovate and to drive collaboration was key to the achievements of the project.

Bryn Jones, former CTO of Pure Planet and H3G (Three)

Susan is smart, strategic and hard-working. She was a great resource for the team and a significant contributor to our success.

Scott Svenson, Co-Founder and CEO of both Seattle Coffee Company and MOD Pizza

I worked directly for Susan in a 2000 dot com start up. She proved to be a smart, thoughtful and strategic leader, as well as being refreshingly direct and open. … Susan has found her niche … with her ability to see the overall picture, effectively manage stakeholders and deep dive into multiple domain areas to drive success.

Greg Smith, former eBay Europe Head of User Experience Research & Design, Mesania Head of Service Management

Susan has been a major driver behind the success of Chop’d and the company owes her a great deal.

Eddie Holmes, Chop'd Managing Director

Widely respected for her engaging manner, Susan is impressively adept at communicating clearly and assertively to all levels, facilitating decision making as well as ensuring on-going work remained true to previous decisions.

Rob Slaughter, Agile PMO Lead and V-Nova USA Regional Manager

Susan immediately injected discipline into company processes, contributing to transparency, prioritization, clarification of objectives and alignment…and helped the whole company become more professional and structured.

Guido Meardi, V-Nova Co-Founder and CEO

Too many people have too much to prove in the advisory process, which imbues it with unnecessary tension and detracts from results. Susan is exclusively focused on helping people get things done.
