Sue says

"While it's important to remain impartial in mediation, I am at heart a commercial person and I believe that a good mediator not only encourages people to talk, but also helps to find a successful resolution, as the most sensible and cost-effective solution.

"I therefore like to provide direction as well as empathy and understanding in my mediation work.

"Personal skills are all-important; however, business clients may be reassured by my entrepreneurial background and knowledge of workplace and commercial issues and law."
