Sue Sutcliffe is the first choice for business owners and sales teams
who want to strategically increase increase sales and cash flow.
Cutting her teeth in traditional marketing thirty-five years ago, Sue was one of the first to recognize how lucrative digital marketing can be.
Determined to enhance the relationship-building aspects of the Internet, she delved into the world of code, website building, search engine optimization and apps long before anyone had even heard about Facebook or Twitter.
This launched her twenty-five year career as the Web Coach and the Marketing Maven. Honoured by these monikers, Sue is happy that her scorecard of firsts – and her focus on all-things-digital – has added her actual name to the shortlist of experts called by CEO’s when they want to monetize the Internet.
How has she made it onto that coveted hot list? She has quantifiable success in working with business owners and sales teams to increase sales, grow engaged customer bases and improve cash flow.
As a pioneer in her industry and a leader in the business community, Sue is a sought-after speaker and trainer whose witty, passionate and down-to-earth manner has propelled thousands of marketers, salespeople and business owners to embrace their online power, grow their networks, and drive leads.
SCORECARD OF FIRSTS:
- One of the first 10 web builders in Canada.
- The first to create a certified secure and safe online shopping mall in Canada.
- A frontrunner who created the Ontario college curriculum that trained many of today’s top marketing and advertising executives.
- Advocated for safe Internet use and worked to advance Canada’s digital landscape.
- When companies were incurring costs from their Internet strategies, Sue was spurring businesses forward with profitable digital marketing campaigns, online stores, and community building campaigns.
- Spoken at hundreds of conferences here at home and internationally. At each event, she reinforced proven digital marketing and social media practices to drive business owners and executives to use the Internet to generate sales and improve cash flow.
I highly recommend Sue Sutcliffe's #OnlinePower coaching for all solopreneurs! Sue takes you from Marketing 101 to dominating the social media sites. Sue's knowledge of all things social media is extensive. By the end of the 11 weeks she'll have you set-up properly to gain full exposure on most all platforms. This is a valuable course whether you're just starting your own business or have been in business for years and haven't mastered social media.

Looking forward to continued work with you in the future!

I recently had the opportunity to attend a 3 hour seminar facilitated by Sue Sutcliffe, and I was blown away. Sue’s depth of knowledge in the field of Social Networking is extremely impressive and seems limitless. However what really grabbed me was the energy and passion Sue puts into the seminar, I was enthralled from beginning to end. I spent over 8 years in corporate training with Durham College and I have seen and hired my fair share of trainers. Some very good and some not so good. I feel very comfortable in saying that Sue Sutcliffe is amongst the best I have ever seen.
Sue brought her expertise as a keynote presenter to one of the Ajax Business Network events. Sue's knowledge and presentation style provided the 'in-demand' information our businesses wanted. Sue is passionate about her craft in social marketing for businesses and was able to share specific tips and advice to the business community. She was a welcome addition to the Town's line-up of presenters and was recognized by Ajax Council for her valuable time. Sue is always welcome to the Ajax Business Network!
I had the opportunity to hire Sue Sutcliffe as our Keynote Speaker and Facilitator for our first Bridges to Better Business Conference. Sue's knowledge of all things Social Media and her ability to capture the attention and hold the interest of each of the small business owners in attendance was fantastic. I was very pleased to have many in attendance come up to me during the conference to tell me how impressed they were with Sue's keynote presentation and how she has inspired them to get their businesses more involved with social media. I recommend Sue Sutcliffe without hesitation.
Sue was a great speaker who I would recommend to anyone seeking advice on E-business or E-marketing. She was very personable and interactive with the group in attendance. She was also easy to understand and made the presentation match the audience.
Sue provides a dynamic and informative presentation on social media and networking for both business/work and personal use. Her inspiring style and energy was awesome!
We are on the threshold of a brave new world of Instant Communications. Mass Media and volumes of print media ads are giving way to unprecedented marketing tools offering laser-like targeting to specific audiences. Leading the charge in education of these Social Media methodologies is the ever buoyant Sue Sutcliffe. Jargon in any industry is powerfully intimidating to an outsider. Happily, Sue quickly demystifies the foreign terms of ‘Blogging’ and ‘Google Analytics’ . She gives the neophyte (and the more experienced Internet user) a step by step painless baptism into the realm of Social Media and how we can learn (independently or with her guidance) to use them as potential powerful business building tools- for any business. Sue’s relaxed and easy presentation style fits well with the subject. She’s very social about the benefits of Social Media. She eased a few fears I had and I’ll be implementing a couple of her tidbits (begin blogging and use multiple Social Media venues) to get the messages of my business out there. Well done Sue. I have every confidence my fellow attendees echo the same appreciation for your expertise.
If you are looking for a professional who knows website and social media marketing strategy, then look no further. Sue's accomplishments speak for themselves. She has been a pioneer in this space and will help you get the results you need.
I have had the opportunity of working with Sue Sutcliffe for over the past 10 years. Sue is a most enthusiastic and highly charged individual.

She has given freely of her time and has lead that group to a mature and dynamic level. Durham Region is very fortunate to have someone like Sue who gives so much of herself in assisting and mentoring other business colleagues to lead them on to success!
It was amazing how much valuable advice Sue provided in our first consultation. Her insights gave us much to reflect and act upon and her encouragement and offers of further support helped us feel that significant improvements were manageable.
Many many thanks!!
Over the years I have dealt with Sue on many fronts. Always passionate, always wanting to give the best service possible. Sue brings years of experience to the table and is able to use that experience and knowledge to bolster your company's presence.

I personally have taken the Bootcamp with Sue, and it is very intense and fast paced. Over the course of two days you learn what it takes to run an efficient social media campaign that keeps you top of everyone's mind. Would I recommend Sue? Without hesitation!

As Chair of the Durham Chapter of Professional Organizers in Canada, we recently invited Sue Sutcliffe out to present to our group on the new Facebook algorithm and let me tell you, we all left feeling knowledgeable and ready to take the new Facebook by storm! As a background, at the beginning of 2018, Facebook made some mega changes to the way businesses are seen and received by users and many of us were no longer getting the reach we used to. With Sue’s brilliance and teachings, our group left the presentation with a roster of skills and tools to stay ahead of the ever-changing Facebook world. Thank you Sue – we could not have been more pleased by your presentation. 5 stars all the way!
I strongly recommend Sue Sutcliffe and her #OnlinePower classes. I didn't know so much could be done about online marketing and content sharing, and how many marketing mistakes I'm actually making. With better online marketing and networking, my law practice grew steadily from March to now, with April being my best month so far! Here's to more hard work and business growth with Sue.

Thanks Sue! That was the best Social Media training I have ever been fortunate enough to take part in! You Rock!
Sue - you have come a long way since setting up the desktop publishing and marketing side of W. Frank Real Estate with me so many years ago to become a true internet pioneer. In a world where it feels like the trolls have been winning, you shared the secrets of using social media to re-evaluate and endorse the concepts of authenticity and human decency.
I first met Sue at Family Realty when I was President. Sue was always keenly interested in doing more than 'just the job'. Through her initiatives, we were the first realty network on the Internet in 1993! Sue is creative and tackles every job with 110% effort. You could not ask for a better team player!
Sue Sutcliffe is one of the most dedicated and diligent people I have ever worked with. We worked as a team on a daily basis developing corporate marketing and advertising programs. Sue was focused on continually improving and upgrading her desktop publishing craft. A creative thinker, Sue was always up for a challenge Her positive outlook on life and in business was a definite asset to the company.
I've known Sue Sutcliff for over 20+ years and I know her to be a most energetic, well informed trainer who would be comfortable in front of any group eager to learn her specialty which is enhanced Social Media skills. I would fully endorse your decision to hire her in this area.
Sue is a high performance, effective and organized leader who effectively delivers what she promises, when she promises it - and always with a smile.
Sue Sutcliffe is a true professional. In working with Sue it was apparent that both she and her staff have one thing they worked towards, that is finding the best product and service to meet theirs client’s needs for the best value.
I had the pleasure of working with Sue to launch Durham Region's first social media pilot project. Creative, enthusiastic and dedicated, Sue is a true expert in her field. We would not have been able to take the leap into Web 2.0 without Sue's expertise.
I was introduced to Sue during a workshop she hosted for the Self Employment Program. As a new business owner needing to have a website, I truly appreciated Sue's ability to speak in "layman's" terms that took a lot of the mystery out of creating my website. Sue's energy and enthusiasm is contagious! You can't help but be energized when she speaks!
Sue's business acumen is matched only by her charm and wit. She is an exceptional web designer/strategist with a dynamic knowledge base and a ability to deliver to her clients. Her knowledge of the internet and her personal experiences are invaluable to any organization aiming to do more with their webs. I had the pleasure of working with Sue on the Durham Home & Small Business Association -- Sue's attention to detail combined with her web -abilities assisted the organization a great deal to launch its first real web site and promote the organization to its 100 plus members at the time. Sue provided a communication link and a networking capability that was not available before her arrival into the DHSBA.
Sue Sutcliffe is a true philanthropist, she puts so much heart into her volunteer work especially with the DHSBA and has done so for years. Her commitment, loyalty and her expertise adds so much value to every board she sits on.
For many years I worked with Sue Sutcliffe as a director of the board at DHSBA. I found her enthusiasm, professionalism and work ethics were a great asset to the DHSBA. Under her presidency the DHSBA grew to the point we had to find a larger venue as we were experiencing 80 to 100 members at a meeting. Sue knew how to reach out to even the newest business. Sponsorship was high and the speakers were extraordinary. All because she inspired us all to be the best we could be. I highly recommend Sue Sutcliffe and her team because of their caring, work ethics, fabulous ideas and knowledge for any position or project.
I hired Sue to host several domain names for me which worked out great. She always helped me find the correct name etc., for these domains and was always prompt on advising me when they needed to be renewed. I highly recommend Sue and if things change for me I would not hesitate to use her services in the future.
Sue and her team made some key changes to my website that were strategically sound, cost effective and delivered on-time and on-budget. I have already had positive feedback on the changes. Woo-Hoo!
Sue and her team designed my website, taking it from an unformed idea in my head to far more than I ever hoped. She and her team shepherded this very-new-to-web client through the design process painlessly and professionally. I know much more about the web now, and would still choose her ten times out of ten.
Absolutely awesome speaking on social media, networking & web design, certainly 'knows her stuff. It really is her passion! A very nice person to know. Friendly & outgoing, authentic, professional, a good heart (kind, helps others, supportive, compassionate) fair-minded, business-oriented and well-connected.
Sue is one fantastic person to work with. I had the pleasure of working alongside Sue on the board of the DHSBA. She is fair, consistent and has outstanding ideas. Sue concerns herself with the benefit of the group and members and not what she has to gain herself. I highly recommend Sue for her honesty and passion in everything she does!
Sue is an expert and a great promoter of Social Networking. I highly recommend her for any group or association looking for an attention getting topic and speaker.
Sue is a "Must Have" individual on your team of support. When every other company is trying to be more creative than the other Sue will bust through the "sameness" problem and give you the edge that awes clients and the competition and lifts your salesforce to new heights. Our web presence gives us top ranking because Sue continually developes SEO strategies that work. She's also fun to have around with a quick wit and a keen eye for who needs what!

I attended a lunchinar that Sue put on and loved it. She kept things interesting and moving along at a great pace.

Keep up the great work, Sue!
Sue is one of those really rare individuals who truly does think outside the box and is able to communicate her creative ideas clearly even for those of us who do not understand social media well.
Sue and her wonderful team put together a fantastic Social Media Bootcamp. With so much on-line social media and social marketing it was very hard to know where to start and then implement it. Sue's Bootcamp explained the intricacies of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube and how they work together and, moreover, how to get the most out of them. So many tips and tricks on what to do and how to do it made the 2-day Bootcamp incredible. We look forward to diving in and making it a strong part of our Marketing & Advertising Strategy. We highly recommend that anyone looking to get the most out of their Social Media take this Bootcamp.
I met Sue through OSEB, a government-funded program for new start-up business owners. First as a speaker, then as a contact, and then again as a coach, Sue has proved extremely knowledgeable, and very helpful in her insights regarding social media, and the murky morass we all call marketing. She is friendly, practical, direct, and quite obviously, very resourceful. I would recommend her in similar capacities to anyone who would listen.
I heard about Sue long before we met and since meeting her a few years ago, I witnessed all of the fabulous things I heard. Sue's company helped me out with my business website and social media strategy. That was so helpful but what impressed me even more is Sue's commitment to the community through the social responsibility of her company. Her giving program... (perhaps it's more of a movement than just a program) has provided the not for profit sector the same tools that she provides to business but at cost. Even more impressive is her new sharing program so if a business purchases a workshop one will be given to a charity or not for profit free! Thanks to Sue for all she does and providing a much needed service!
Sue is a true professional, very entertaining speaker, a definite must for any office to have Sue come and speak about Internet marketing. Highly recommended when trying to take your internet marketing to the next level.

Your presentation was dynamic, interactive, entertaining and chock-full of priceless marketing tidbits. You have a great presence and your honest, caring nature and expert knowledge really come across to your audience.
I want to thank you for a great workshop yesterday. I know that I speak for every-one that attended they learned tons.
Your presentation walked us through a comprehensive, step-by-step roadmap to marketing success. Web wizard, marketing guru, dynamic speaker — who knew learning could be so much fun?
I have talked to a few of the students and they said it was their best session EVER. Krista was inspired; Jesse, well I think he is mesmerized by Sue; and Alex for the first time was actually engaged in a training session. With such a diverse range of ages and businesses, it is difficult to keep the group engaged and cohesive. But you pulled it of with ease. I saw some great mentor connections happening. I thank you for sharing your time and knowledge, it is greatly appreciated.
I was very impressed by your presentation last month and we now have Facebook Customers – Thanks to you !
Sue has a gift for public speaking.
Sue is a fantastic, engaged, and enthusiastic speaker! She breaks complex concepts down into accessible ideas and describes principles of design in straightforward, everyday language.
