I am passionate about supporting people and books that make a difference. I work with businesses and organizations around the world to make them stand out from the competition and get their message out more effectively: clarifying strategy and developing that through into content marketing, including print and ebooks.

A veteran of the publishing industry, I worked for 25 years with leading companies such as Chambers, Oxford University Press and Macmillan before I founded Practical Inspiration Publishing in 2014. I also provide executive coaching, consultancy and training services to publishers and regularly speak and blog on publishing, business and innovation.

I host The Extraordinary Business Book Club (www.extraordinarybusinessbooks.com)

" Thanks Susan - you're right, often it's the way she frames it rather than what she's actually saying that makes it feel original. "
