Sue has over 30 years of experience in providing public relations and communications services in the public and private sector including stakeholder management and strategic planning, gained within complex and challenging political and economic environments. For the past 15 years, through her communications management and consultancy business, Sue has held several communications directorships, for both local government and health providers, as well as for one of the UK’s health service regulators.
Prior to that, Sue held various senior communications posts at BT plc. During that time she launched and ran the BT Technology Journalist of the Year Awards to build and cement critical media relationships, and was fortunate to be at the forefront of what we now recognise as today’s digital revolution.
An active and energetic advocate of social media, Sue is a Fellow of the CIPR, and has been both an external examiner and guest lecturer at several seats of learning. She is now cementing her role as a non-executive board member, holding posts on boards of both Canterbury Christ Church University, and the Caldecott Foundation, a charity caring for looked-after children.
Sue lives with her partner in Hythe on the Kent coast, and enjoys choral singing, improving her French, and broadening her vegetarian cookery repertoire.
