Your style was warm, engaging and credible and you delivered excellently to our brief of raising awareness of the importance of image and personal brand in today's workplace. Participant feedback was very positive with comments like, 'Great. Left me wanting more' and 'a great reminder on how to stand out and show your brand.' Cerebos

Some comments about your presentation included: 'Very informative, gave me some gems in such a short period of time'; 'Very clear and easy to understand and gets everyone involved'; 'Dynamic, articulate and obviously well-versed in her subject matter'; 'Sue was fabulous - absolutely fabulous!' 'Absolutely brilliant - one of the best presenters I've seen - every single second of the workshop was jam-packed full of information and learning'.

I was lucky enough to meet Sue at the PCOA (Professional Conference Organisers Association) Conference where she was a keynote speaker. I found her talk on personal branding to be very engaging and thought provoking. It was a very important message that Sue delivers in an entertaining way. I would highly recommend Sue to you as an expert in personal branding and as a public speaker.

Gold Coast Business Events

We engaged Sue Currie to conduct a personal branding workshop for our team at Gold Coast Water during a time of change and restructure to our organisation. Sue’s workshop provided great value in assisting our business unit and employees to consider their own profile, identity and legacy. Participants were given advice on how to understand their own brand and sell themselves which in turn lifted their confidence and self-esteem. I would recommend this workshop to others as it positively helped our team to shine.

City of Gold Coast

Sue Currie came to Canberra to speak for our Small Biz Intelligence network. She presented at a Biz Breakfast, then followed up by running a very productive, practical workshop on media for our members. The feedback was excellent, with all attendees singing her praises. One of the attendees followed up the workshop with strategies she had learnt from Sue and got excellent results. I would not hesitate to recommend Sue as a consummate professional and outstanding presenter.
