— Margaret Coady, Executive Director, CECP
Thank you for a fantastic keynote presentation at our 2013 Fall Conference & Exhibition! You delivered the message that It’s All About the Storytelling with great humor, warmth, and expertise. We loved having you out here in Colorado!
— Sara Raab, Manager of Special Projects, Colorado Nonprofit Association
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for you willingness to provide such a professional, effective presentation! The warmth of your personality, even though you sat thousands of miles away, came over so easily onto our screen.
— Felicity Aziz, U.S. Embassy Tel Aviv
Susan is charming, energetic, and has such a nice warmth and spirit to her that it immediately made the audience and panelists feel at ease. I would highly recommend Susan for any speaking engagement - her genuine and personal touch sparks interesting discussions and thoughtful insights.
— Melissa O'Young, Let's Collaborate!
Susan amazed my class today! She shares her story and her wisdom so authentically, and completely engaged everyone in the room. She challenged us all to think strategically about what’s important in the world of CSR, and left us inspired - no surprise there - and activated. We had a follow-on discussion for a full hour based on the content and questions Susan had presented to us. Brava, Susan!
— Jessica Jackley, Kiva Co-Founder
