It was a pleasure to partner with Sue… on a serious and potentially divisive topic. Sue is a caring professional and skilled facilitator, managing content and audience with both balance and respect.

Linda Barner

Former Vice-President of Multicultural Affairs, Key Bank

Your presentation helped us discover how the ways we think and communicate may be harmful to others without even knowing it and, more importantly, how to put an end to it. No one else could have handled all you did at our event. You were the easiest speaker to work with. I didn’t have to worry about a thing.
