Susan RoAne’s Background:
The old fashioned rules Susan had to abide by at the beginning of her working life was that woman were only taken on as receptionists in the advertising world where she wished to build a career. After a daunting interview as a receptionist, she decided to give teaching a go instead. She worked as a school teacher but as her friends began to get laid off, she saw the opportunity in helping them create new careers. She designed a “career change workshop for teachers” that quickly grew in popularity.
