Birthed out of a 20 year career in media communications, marketing and publishing, from Hong Kong to Los Angeles to Canada to Sydney, Susan’s interest in social media engagement comes from her honest passion to build authentic community where ever she sees the need. As a wife, and a mother of 3 beautiful children, she firmly believes that community starts in the home, and her “others” focused ethos drives her to leverage the technology platforms to maximum effect, connecting people to stories, and people to one another. Susan invites you to the conversation of life.
“Susan Sohn is one of my nearest and dearest friends. She has an inimitable gift to get to the heart of the matter, and whether in person, speaking, through social media, radio or in her writing, she makes it one-to-one. Authentic identity not only defines her passion, it describes who she is. Funny, bold, and free, I highly recommend Susan, if you want your audience to be engaged, inspired, and entertained.”

‘Susan was a key figure in conceiving and implementing the GetReal Live events in Calgary and Sydney, Australia at which I was the major presenter. From start to finish Susan was incredible to work with. The event was hugely supported by local business and experienced sold-out attendance. It was a pleasure to work with such a professional and to be part of an event that was so perfectly and flawlessly executed.’
“I recently read Lean In by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg on women and leading with confidence. This isn’t so much a plug for the book although it’s highly recommended reading, but more about how it reminded me of my friend Susan. She’s always been one of my greatest fans even, or maybe especially when I have been hesitant to step out into something new and scary or needed someone to be strong for me till I could find the strength in myself.
We empower others from our own sweet spot and give them permission to be amazing, even though they never needed it. Susan’s desire to empower women and girls to be the very best version of themselves comes from her confidence that life can be all you want it to be. She has a great ability to strap poms poms onto her wrists and dance while shouting for your success. Susan’s message to women is one of freedom, let the kitchen be messy for today and go and live your dream life, be present with your kids, the people in your workplace and community. Don’t wait for permission to move onward and let go of having/doing it all. Do what’s in front of you and get started today!”
