Sue’s journey has taken her from the family farm in Southland to a stellar corporate career including her role as the GM of one of New Zealand’s largest agribusinesses.

She has been a member of the BNZ Partners Growth Programme faculty for six years and is the developer of the world-class BNZ Partners Women in Business, Women in Agribusiness, and Women in Leadership programmes.

Her ideas have inspired many individuals and organisations to action, resulting in significant change and class-leading success. She inspires individuals, teams and organisations large and small, to realise their personal, leadership and business potential and to live into their greatness.
