Suzanne Whitby, Professional Facilitator & Communication Specialist

Suzanne Whitby

Founder, Communication Specialist

Suzanne is the founder and managing director of SciComm Success.

She is a communication specialist who has nearly 20 years of international experience of tackling communication challenges head-on. Since 2014, she has been designing and delivering training programmes and workshops to help scientists and researchers share their research effectively with non-expert audiences, and develop the skills they need to interact successfully with peers and colleagues. Her experience extends across a range of sectors and she has designed and delivered communication and facilitation programmes for many well-known organisations in Europe, the USA, and further afield.

In addition to her innovative use of training and facilitation methodologies in her programmes to aid learning, she is known for her ability to cut to the heart of problems and to provide innovative insights, direct feedback, and supportive advice to help people transform their communication and personal impact.

A life-long learner, Suzanne is studying towards a PhD in heritage and sensory studies in her free time, enjoying the life of an academic researcher gathering and analysing data in sometimes pressurised conditions, which makes her work with researchers and academics particularly relevant!

On a personal note, she is a voracious reader, an oral storyteller and a “fish hugger” (rather than a “tree hugger”) who loves scuba diving, walking and travelling. She believes in the importance of human connection and creates new communities wherever she goes. She is continually becoming better at “tread more lightly” on the earth and lives in Innsbruck, Austria with her Atmospheric Physicist husband.
