Bold, direct, witty and caring are words most often used to describe Sue. She launched her first business in 2004, Dynamic Visions Group, a national media recruitment and and training agency. Previously Sue had clocked up over 25 years in sales, training and marketing within corporates, government & SMEs incl Yellow Pages, Val Morgan, Focus Newspaper, AICD, RMIT, Health Services Australia and Financial Times Publishing.
There have not been many commercial and human issues Sue hasn't seen or faced head on. Many challenges led to triumphs and many to failure and tears. But all those experiences and a lifelong refusal to follow the norm and status quo led to launching DARE Group in 2015. Sue's purpose was not just commercial but to impact and share the human condition, fears and problems that people and businesses face. No one is alone!
Stories, media and communication is in her DNA and she is a well respected columnist and contributor to national business media, career and industry publications.
With a slight obsession for opportunity shops, musical theatre, decorating, champagne, baking scones and belly laughter, Sue adores life with her talented husband and their two human like Cavalier Spaniels in Melbourne.
