Her systemic perspective means that she is continually looking out for and raising to the surface underlying cultural dynamics which can help or hinder projects.

Suzie has excellent interpersonal skills, a collaborative and engaging style and, as an artist, brings creativity and imagination to complex organization challenges. She has always been curious about how artistic processes might be used to enhance individual, team and business performance and has just completed her Masters of Therapeutic Art Practice (MIECAT) with the intention of bringing these insights into her consulting practice. In the meantime, in addition to her consulting work, she works therapeutically using arts-based processes at one of Melbourne’s private mental health hospitals on a casual basis.
