Susan is Managing Director of the Hayes Culleton Group, with clients across Europe and the USA. She heads up businesses including BECKSearch, which specialises in enhanced peer learning, and #SavvyTeenAcademy, which offers educational programmes to teenagers. The Group also provides training and content development services niching in the financial markets, economics and entrepreneurship. Susan’s broad experience with clients and markets overseas means she brings diverse ideas and opportunities from around the world to the table.
Whatever her role–MC, keynote, facilitator–Susan is known for going the extra mile. A keen observer with a rare capacity to think on her feet, she seamlessly weaves together themes and conversations to create summaries and even poems that perfectly capture key moments and insights that captivate audiences.
Her professional credentials (CFA charterholder and four-times author), specialist knowledge and track record of experience make her a hugely popular speaker, widely regarded for the level of preparation she brings. Taking a ‘grounded in experience’ approach, she has an impressive ability to contextualise and to deliver meaningful observations and practical analysis that inspire people to implement an ambitious, smart action plan.
Importantly, while her trademark is her positive approach, Susan insists she is no ‘Pollyana.’ Her key driver is her realism, and her mantra, always, is to:
• practice what you preach – she speaks only about what she knows works
• focus on what you can do – she will always find the opportunity
• be practical and implementable – she inspires audiences with tangible action
