"Sue Austin is an exceptional coach. She has been a great support
to me in the past and possesses the leadership experience and strategic discipline
to help you take your career to the next level."
"In Sue's capacity as Senior Partner at OgilvyOne her role was to lead an integrated account team,
I reported to her as the Interactive Account Director on the American Express business. The interactive team worked separately from
the rest of the team and the need for integration was recognized by Sue. One of her initiatives involved an offsite team building workshop.
To this day, it is the best format I have experienced for team building. We came out of that day with a much deeper understanding of each
other, our respective strengths which were different and how we could build on those unique strengths to build the business."
"Not only did we work better as a team, but also we were having fun working together. So much so that Sue and I still work together whenever we have the chance."
