Professional Speaking


I’ve found “A mind, once expanded by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions” – Oliver Wendell Holmes

Susan Popoola is a Human Resources Consultant, specialising in Talent Management but she’s also so much more. She is the published author of two books that explore the world in which we live – reflecting on the opportunities, challenges, evolution and diversity of today’s societies.

Any person who has the opportunity to interact with Susan and listen to her speak will be taken on a journey that inspires them to think outside of the box and realise that the world is really and truly their oyster – full of opportunities to be exploited. They will find themselves both appreciating and recognising both their own unique value and worth and that of the people that surround them both locally and globally. This is critical to encourage engagement and as a result individual performance.

Lest you ask why:

Although Susan knew that she wanted to write for a living and also knew precisely why, she was initially discouraged from this path as it was described as unprofitable. After her 1st Degree in Political Science, she therefore ended up gaining a rich experience working in different organisations across various sectors searching for fulfilling roles, which made the most of her various talents. Amongst her other qualifications she obtained a Masters in Human Resources strategy and change – focusing her career in on Human Resources, whilst as a simultaneously thinking engaging in Community and society issues and finding time to do research and write books.

Through her career and general interest, Susan has also made the time to travel widely to places inclusive of Japan, Continental Europe, the United States, Haiti and Africa.

An award winner for Milton Keynes Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Equality and Diversity Awards 2012, Susan relates to both the challenges, concerns and the environment of people from different backgrounds, not only because of her vast and varied experience, but also because of her ability to relate to others and see things from their point of view.

Susan typical speaks to organisations on how to optimise the value of people within their organisations with a strong focus on young people and people from diverse backgrounds, what she refers to as the Mosaic workforce.

With a focus on young people and people from diverse community backgrounds she also talks to people about recognising the value that they have to offer to the workplace and wider society.

Susan has spoken both within the UK and Internationally in places inclusive of the US, Nigeria and Denmark. Some testimonials can be found here
