Having originated a wide range of creative projects and approaches to challenge her students, Sue has turned her attention to the need to develop creative thinkers inside and outside business.
eclecthink international, a creativity and innovation consulting company in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, of which Sue is a Founding Partner, came out of her work with schools and community organisations badly in need of alternate views and perspectives.
She a board member of the Canadian Information Processing Society, Saskatchewan Chapter and is a bilingual French speaker often lamenting that she doesn't get to practice her French enough.
