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 is a fantastic, engaged, and enthusiastic speaker! She breaks complex concepts down into accessible ideas and describes principles of design in straightforward, everyday language. Sue explains the process of designing and evaluating websites as a series of questions – turning the process into a series of building blocks in order to understand the reasons behind specific design choices. Sue’s visual aids are just as easy to understand, and clearly illustrate the ideas she explains. When speaking to students in my Web Design class, Sue encouraged them to ask questions – any kind of questions – and each of her answers increased my students’ confidence in their own work and ideas. Her expertise, approachability, and sense of humour captivated the class, and her insights have helped them to significantly improve their own work. Sue’s strength lies in her ability to make the technical approachable and enjoyable for people without any technical background. She was an incredible asset to my class, with her impact stretching far beyond her presentation to pop up in students’ work throughout the term. Thank you so much, Sue!
