Susan has over 30 years of experience in public service, 26 years as a senior manager in London local government and working nationally with the Improvement and Development Agency for local government (IDeA) between 1999 and 2011.
The last six of these were spent leading the national Healthy Communities Programme, and her freelance work has continued in this field. She is a creative and strategic thinker, organisational development practitioner and executive coach with broad managerial and multi million pound budget management experience. Working freelance since the beginning of 2012 Susan works with organisations and people in transition, with a focus on navigating change, individual development, coaching and large-scale programme design. Susan has fulfilled a number of voluntary roles including school governor, PTA chair, mentoring and coaching within the voluntary and community sector and serving as a member for NICE on their Public Health Advisory Committee – most recently focusing on delaying the onset of disability, frailty and dementia in later life.
Susan has an active family life, enjoys camping with her sons and spends as much time as she can spare, and afford, sampling the delights of places outside London. An Art Historian who couldn't find work in the field she feeds her love of art through exhibitions, galleries and museums, much to the disgust of her boys who are often heard to cry 'Mum please no more museums!'
