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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
