Susie has over 17 years experience in communications, engagement and marketing.

I'm passionate about bringing ideas and concepts to life with story and getting to the heart of the matter. Content based on story helps make corporates feel real and makes people feel valued and connected. 

Susie has spent nearly ten years working in transport infrastructure for government leading and managing strategic communications, large communication teams, engagement and change programs in over 500 infrastructure projects at a local government, state and national level with private sector contractors and numerous communities. 

Educated in America, where she attained her MBA at California State University, Susie has a strong commitment to life-long learning as a means to provide her clients with best practice in her field and is Associate Member of (AMAMI) of the Australia Marketing Institute and a Member of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).

Susie's work as a vital point of contact collating, updating and publishing information regarding road closures during the Brisbane floods in 2012 was commended by the Premier.

Susie is well-connected and has a number of expert associates available to join her at times of high demand to provide specialised skills to meet the needs of Beckon’s clients.
