Suzanne Jones

Executive Trainer

Suzanne Jones is an accomplished and experienced communications all-rounder. She is a highly competent journalist, broadcaster, media and presentation skills trainer, PR agent, crisis management advisor and podcaster.

Suzanne has worked with Communication & Media Manoeuvres as an Executive Trainer for more than a decade and continues to provide real-world advice to meet the changing demands of the media and stakeholder communications landscape.

Suzanne started her career as a Melbourne-based journalist, newsreader and broadcaster, with nine years in the fast-paced, deadline-driven breakfast newsroom. She spent years fine-tuning her skills in extracting a news angle and building it into a story. She then took on a career on the other side of the microphone as a public relations, media and crisis management strategist.

Suzanne thrives on communication challenges. She is very straightforward in her approach and will honestly assess the situation, then devise a strategy for the best way forward. Wide experience across many sectors, such as property, finance, funds management, technology, government, NFP, and more recently energy and renewables, gives Suzanne the edge when advising and training clients. She can read the big picture.

Suzanne excels at working with trainees to build their confidence when speaking in public and to get the most out of their natural voice when engaging in media interviews.

Suzanne is called upon for crisis management advice, stakeholder engagement, and media and presentation skills coaching, making her a valued member of the Communication & Media Manoeuvres team.
