Engaging, Inspiring & Fun!

I get audiences excited about attracting more clients showing them how to identify what makes their company or personal brand unique and then tell that brand story through blogging, speaking and social media marketing.

My passion for teaching and desire to make the content fun for the audience creates a unique and engaging experience that your audience will love. Audiences leave engaged, energized, educated and inspired!

I have spoken for many organizations, companies, and universities on branding, marketing, social media marketing, entrepreneurship, and international business topics. I’m very comfortable in front of a microphone or camera, serving as a guest on several Internet small business shows to talk about entrepreneurship, as well as appearing on NBC 5 Chicago News, WGN, ABC 7 Chicago News, and ABC’s 190 North programs with a previous business.

Dear Sue,


Thank you for the wonderful Social Media presentation you gave at our Women’s Initiative program for women business owners.  Those who attended had various levels of knowledge regarding social media, and you were able to answer everyone’s questions and present the material in a way that was very easy for everyone to understand.  Everyone I spoke to judged it an excellent program.


As a woman business owner yourself, you especially connected with your audience by offering valuable tips and a decision making framework to save time and do more with less, which is important for time starved entrepreneurs.  Your advice on the importance of branding and blogging for small business owners in order to position themselves as experts in their field was of great interest to everyone.


Your knowledge of social media marketing was superb, your enthusiasm was contagious and I look forward to having you speak again. Thank you again for a wonderful, engaging presentation.
