I first came across Susan on one of her financial markets courses, she is a superb storyteller, this is a great skill when teaching non experts about financial instruments and markets. Susan recently accepted our invitation to speak to the Women's Network at the Central Bank on the topic of personal effectiveness. Thank You!

TEACHER
Susan had the students on the edge of their seat from the moment she entered the classroom. They were, and still are fascinated… In fact the girls are still talking about her presentation 3 months on. Susan made the subject of economics so real to the girls, she brought their classroom learning to life in an interesting, factual and, more importantly, fun way. She is a powerful presenter who shares her knowledge and experience with students with the care and patience of a natural teacher. In fact the girls loved her so much they hung back afterwards for 20 minutes plying her with questions. They now all want to be Economists and Entrepreneurs and keep asking when Susan is coming back! I could not possibly stress how valuable this experience has been to my girls and would highly recommend a visit from Susan to any economics class, it certainly will give students a fresh and exciting persepective on a wonderful array of topics. Thank you so much Susan.

In my 8-year experience working in The Institute of Banking I have had the pleasure of hearing and working with many of the financial industry’s brightest minds. Susan ranks among the very best speakers I’ve ever encountered. Her presentations are packed with illuminating anecdotes, telling statistics, surprising paradoxes and a refreshing dose of good humour. They are a testament to her Presentation skills. Susan is energetic and captivates the audiences’ attention every time. She is a force of nature with an extraordinary interest in and knowledge of global politics and economics. It’s not surprising why she is involved in so many talk shows and debates with senior politicians. It is my pleasure to give Susan HayesCulleton my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker. Susan will deliver the latest, very accurate and valuable information and analysis in an inspiring and entertaining manner.

Thanks so much for coming to teach us. What good value for a class. I was quite impressed with the simplicity of the strategy you taught us. Unlike most options strategies, we didn’t really have to understand the Greeks which can be quite confusing. The best part is that it is a “transferable method”. It can be replicated by anyone at anytime and still be a successful, profitable strategy. Many strategies out there are interpreted differently by each person using them. Certain people fail to make money using the same strategies that others continue to profit from. The difference is the interpretation – no danger of that with your course. The method is simple and can be applied by everyone the same way.

FLAGSHIP BRANCH MANAGER AT BANK OF IRELAND
Susan addressed a very large audience of the South Region Committee of The Institute of Banking with the topic 'Ireland in a Post-Brexit Europe'. I don't say this lightly but the presentation was incredible, everyone was enthralled as Susan brought us all on a journey to where our world economies are today with thoughtful insights to the future. An inspirational speaker that made the subject really interesting and we all went away educated, motivated and dare I say it wanting more!

Thanks again for running the course for us. I found it very interesting and the fact that it focused on Selling Puts meant that it was easy to focus on the material instead of getting confused with lots of different strategies that a lot of websites / other courses do. Your enthusiasm on the day kept me motivated and alert throughout. It has given me the confidence to pursue your strategy further. I have already opened an account with thinkorswim! I would be interested in pursuing the “Covered Call” route at some stage soon, after I have got comfortable with this strategy. Thanks again.

Colm Baldwin

Thanks for Saturday. It was great to get access to someone who really knows their stuff and is very successful in the market. Your energy and ability to explain and demystify the topic was great. I’d be seriously interested in doing this as part of an investment strategy

Susan really brought what we have learned in the classroom to life, I found it fascinating to find out the answers to questions like “Why can’t we just print more money?” I would never have considered the real reasons before.

Susan is an inspirational public speaker, gifted with an ability to make complex information accessible to all. Her passion for her subject matter is palpable and, perhaps most importantly of all, she is unstinting in her willingness to share the secrets of her success with others.

Deirdre McLoughlin

Executive Coach, Psychotherapist, Facilitator
On 16 July 2018, in Cork the dynamic Susan Hayes joined us at the River Lee Hotel to speak to participants of IMI’s flagship ‘Women In Leadership’ programme, designed and delivered by Hetty Einzig & Deirdre McLoughlin and sponsored by the 30% Club. Susan has tremendous energy and she filled the room with her openness, warmth and humour. Feedback from participants touched on Susan’s genuineness, her focus, her capability, and how she is re-defining what work can be. Susan shared her story of success with authenticity, inspiring the group with how she overcame challenges to build her business, based on her philosphy of mutuality of success. She spoke of how she crafted her workplace for personal balance and fulfilment while reaching out to others with support. This resonated deeply with participants and her generosity in sharing her tips for success was well received. Altogether she was hugely inspiring and was identified as a role model for female entrepreneurs and women in business.

Susan, big thank you for helping us to deliver the EirGrid Customer Conference in Cork this week. Your professionalism, enthusiasm and quick wit helped to keep the sessions flow with a very positive energy. Well done and thanks

Valerie Hedin

Head of Communications, EirGrid
Susan hosted two events for us this year and was the consummate professional in both. The title of host does not do Susan justice – her attention to detail, preparation and knowledge of relevant topics combined with her engaging and energetic manner allowed both events to flow seamlessly. She has an amazing ability to digest information and then reframe it back to the audience which ensures all in attendance leave with the key themes and discussion points firmly in their minds. If you are lucky enough you may get a wonderful poem summarizing the whole day in a fun and captivating manner. Aside from this, Susan’s ability to multi-task was brilliant, she communicated discreetly with staff while still running the show effortlessly and to an incredibly high standard. I cannot recommend Susan highly enough.

I really appreciated the excitement and life you brought to the IOD Women's Leadership Conference. I was so impressed with your ability with the panels to encourage high quality discussion and not take over. You had an uncanny ability to summarise the key points and bring the whole discussion together - amazing!
