Speaking upon the announcement, Susie said: “Being named as a Fellow of the PRII is such an honour, and one I would never have expected when I started my career. The industry has changed drastically since I founded Springboard almost ten years ago. I have always strived to bring a contemporary, future-focused approach to strategic communications, advising both indigenous and multinational corporations as well as the public sector.

“We have seen so much innovation in such a short space of time, but the communications sector is in a really exciting place at the moment and I’m looking forward to seeing where we go next.”

Springboard Communications grew its team by 25% in 2020 with the addition of expertise in key areas, and is projected to expand even further in 2022. The multi-disciplined team enables clients to communicate clearly, creatively and effectively across all platforms both locally and globally.
