Suzanne Surridge

Suzanne’s experience spans global brands within top PR agencies as well as in-house communications at some of the world’s best known household brands. Having worked in PR for 18 years, Suzanne has been on the leadership team at several PR agencies, from global networks to smaller independents, resulting in a diverse perspective on different ways of approaching challenges and a range of skills.

Suzanne started her career in food and drink and that remains a specialism and a passion but since then, she has worked within consumer lifestyle, consumer healthcare, technology and education to name but a few, meaning she can confidently turn her hand to any industry sector thrown her way!

Highly experienced in C-suite stakeholder engagement, Suzanne is known for her calm approach in a crisis, her strategic intelligence and creativity. Always keen to further her professional development, she completed a Mini MBA in Marketing to ensure she has in-depth knowledge across the marketing mix, rather than just PR, which helps build stronger, well-rounded campaigns for clients.

Suzanne has received a number of accolades over the years including The Grocer magazine’s Top New Talent Award. She was also chosen to take part in the highly sought after PR Week and Women in PR mentoring scheme, as well as SABRE, CIPR Excellence, PRCA and PR Moment Awards nominations for her client campaigns.

Outside of work, Suzanne keeps up her love for food and drink by eating out at top restaurants when she can and attempts to balance out the indulgence by hitting the gym or Bounce trampoline fitness classes. Suzanne has three children who put a smile on her face every day and also give a very real insight into what it means to be growing up in this world, which is certainly great for keeping your finger on the pulse!
