Sue has provided keynote presentations and workshops at a wide range of events and conferences and has extensive experience of speaking to the press and media about safeguarding children.

All of this is brought together in the creation of ‘reflective enactment’. Drawing on reliable research and practice experience, this style of sharing learning has been developed by Sue to provide a safe space, where practitioners and managers can reflect on their experience and knowledge of working with families, in a way which enhances professional wisdom. This is crucial to protecting children and strengthening the resilience of the children’s workforce.
