Suzanne is the founder of POWERSCreativity, a company dedicated to helping organizations and people unleash creativity to drive business impact.  This company is founded on the belief that creativity is not a happy accident, but rather requires intentional design to craft and calibrate the conditions for creativity to thrive. Planning for creativity is not only Suzanne’s passion; it channels her deep experience of working across some of the world’s most famous brands and agencies. 
Most recently, Suzanne spent the last ten years transforming McCann Worldgroup into a global strategic and creative powerhouse, working across all agencies and brands including GM, L’Oreal, Nestle, Reckitt, Microsoft, State Street, and Mastercard. She held a variety of roles across the company from Global Chief Strategy Officer, to Global President, to Global Chief Product Officer, to Chair of FutureBrand. 
Suzanne was named "2019 Chief Strategy Officer of the Year" and during her tenure, the network won global “Agency of the Year” recognitions from Fast Company, Cannes, the Effies, WARC, and many others. She sits on the Effie board, has chaired the APG for the 4A’s, and is a powerful keynote speaker and judge. She was recognized by Advertising Women of NY as a “true catalyst of innovation.”
Prior to McCann Worldgroup, Suzanne served as Global Chief Strategy Officer at Crispin Porter + Bogusky and TBWA, two of the most creative shops in the industry.
