Zanna Creative provides smart clear thinking, approaching any project with
analytical thinking built on foundations of good research and actually listening to people.
Combined with this approach, Suzie’s professional, personable, open style and focus
on meeting deadlines results in high quality work that speaks with authority yet is fun to be part of.

Real thought and preparation had gone into supporting our away day discussions.
New trustees and established board members were brought together in an effective way which led to clear
conversations and an injection of energy for the board. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Zanna Creative again.

I worked with Suzie during our time on the Clore Leadership Programme.
I found her clarity of thought combined with directly communicated yet supportive insights
invaluable during the critical early months of my time at the National Theatre of Scotland.
I was fortunate to benefit from her experience in strategic planning
and organisational development and look forward to continuing our relationship.

Suzie was one of our prime targets when we were looking to recruit new
members to the Ffilm Cymru Wales board to help drive fresh
approaches to a changing film and media ecosystem. Suzie has an impressive track
record and a stellar reputation for building strategies that generate business and social value.
Since joining the board, her clear-sighted thinking and focus on practical delivery
have made a clear impact and she was quickly elected Vice Chair.
Suzie has that rare combination of energy, drive, warmth and humour,
which makes her an asset for any organisation or project.
— Michael Gubbins, Chair - Ffilm Cymru Wales

I worked with Suzie on developing a large-scale cultural event in 2015.
Working with her is an absolute pleasure. Her ability to juggle
the challenging demands of multiple stakeholders and partners on a project,
and do it with a smile, will never fail to amaze me!
— Lawrence francis, director of client strategy -premier communications

Suzie’s Producer Masterclass for the BFI Academy was incredibly well
received by the students who came out of the session with
a complete understanding of the importance and creativity needed for the role.
We have been running the academy for 4 years now
and never have we had such a meaningful collection of young people
looking at Producing as their desired route within the industry.
I have no doubt Suzie’s masterclass had a part to play in that

Whilst working with Suzie when she was CEO of Screen WM
she demonstrated her extensive leadership qualities – vision, drive, resilience and tenacity
through considerable organisational change and transition. Suzie grasps challenges quickly, is
a strategic thinker who always delivers with clarity and purpose.
She has cultivated an impressive and extensive network of contacts over
her many years in the creative sector. Suzie is a collaborative leader
who is a pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in working with her again.
— Tommy Nagra, Head of Television: Religion and Ethics - BBC

I worked closely with Suzie over a number of years on
a large multi-organisational partnership project. I have always been impressed
by her informed business insight into the creative industries, and in
particular her ability to identify the opportunities in a changing and
challenging landscape of convergence
