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 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.
