Zanna Creative provides smart clear thinking, approaching any project withanalytical 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 clearconversations 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.
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!
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 tenacitythrough 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.
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
