Biz Gals: What is your greatest achievement?
Susie: A very difficult question to answer!
I have done so many wonderful gigs and worked with some incredible people. I think my greatest achievement is being a Mum to my twin boys (now young men). In a business sense I really think it’s an amazing achievement to get to the end of each show and know that I’ve done the best I could possibly do.
Biz Gals: What is the greatest lesson you have learnt?
Susie: I’ve learned the value of preparation and knowing when to shut up and listen.
Biz Gals: What is the best bit of advice you have been given?
Susie: If you keep working at it you get better, so keep working!
Biz Gals: What or who inspires you?
Susie: I am inspired by art and the beauty of the natural world. I am also constantly inspired by the artists and musicians I work with.
Biz Gals: What is your biggest hope for women in the future?
Susie: A part of what I do is music production. I am constantly amazed at how difficult it is for women to be treated equally in this area. I would love to see a more accepting and equal playing field for women to make their mark in the world, wherever they choose.
