“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Susan at American Express, her passion commitment and focus on her client base was inspiring. Susan is fortunate to have the ability to provide her clients with thought leadership to help them define a strategy, as well as an unwavering attention to detail that ensures the strategy is executed effectively. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Susan again.”

Having first got to know Susan during her time at American Express, I’ve always found her to be highly motivated, and full of energy and ideas on how to deliver a great event experience. It was this drive that led me to hire her as a Show Director at Single Market Events, to lead a team in staging a new exhibition for the £1.5bn UK flower industry. She successfully secured sponsorship for the event and, more importantly, through her proactive engagement, participation from key industry players.”

“Susan worked in my team for a number of years at both American Express and at Wyndham/RCI. Susan is an excellent Business Development/Client Management professional and has a proven track record across a number of industries within Travel, Leisure and Hospitality. She is a good project manager, very organised, with excellent financial acumen, Susan has the ability to communicate and sell to both Senior Management and team individuals at varying levels. She is well liked by her peers and seniors and will be an asset to any team”

Susan came recommended to us by one of the existing Secret Spaces venue owners. She has been extremely generous with her evident wealth of hospitality industry knowledge as we explore hosting events, that we have been approached to do, in our property’s 14th century chapel. Initially she prepared an Opportunity Evaluation paper specific to our property and location, providing comprehensive guidance on legal, logistical and operational considerations required. This was most helpful to expedite our fact finding. She raised important points to address, advised us with great attention to detail and shared valuable insights from her breadth of experience that have helped steer the way forward for us. Susan’s depth of relevant knowledge combined with her approachable style of communication make her a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her as the number one go-to for anyone considering opening an event venue business.
