Susannah has played a central role in the company’s award-winning growth from start-up to market leader, running multifaceted campaigns for Seven Hills clients that encompass events, marketing, content and communications.
She heads up our team working with Grant Thornton to deliver the company’s Vibrant Economy Agenda, a cross-sector initiative led by the firm to tackle the UK’s biggest social and economic challenges. At its heart is Faces – an annual celebration of the people across the UK who are creating growth, driving innovation and spotlighting the transformative power of social purpose.
For the last four years, Susannah has also led our work with Innovate Finance, supporting on the delivery of their landmark Global Summit – the world’s largest fintech conference. During our time working with the team, the event has expanded significantly and now spans two days, attracting more than 2,000 delegates, and over 200 speakers across three stages.
She works closely with Scale-Up Institute founder Sherry Coutu CBE, most recently advising on the launch for Workfinder – a new platform that aspires to democratise the work-experience process by matching young talent with great companies across the UK. The app was launched at a VIP event with LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, with #Workfinder trending nationally across the UK on the day it was released, and generating national headlines across broadsheet and broadcast news outlets.
Susannah played a central role in the delivery of the inaugural Bloomberg Business Innovators, which showcases the leading disruptors and challengers from across the nation. This involved working closely with a high-profile panel of judges including Saul Klein, Rohan Silva and Lisa Smosarski, with the campaign launched at an exclusive reception at Bloomberg’s European headquarters.
International experience at Seven Hills includes delivering events on behalf of AIM-listed data firm WANdisco, in Arizona, San Francisco and New York.
