Suzanne Whitby

Storyteller, brainstormer, writer, speaker, maverick

A South African living in beautiful Innsbruck. By day, a presentation skills and public speaking trainer at Start with Story, and a professional brainstormer at Brainstorm. By night, she is oral storyteller Ziyadliwa.

An unstoppable idea-generator and serial entrepreneur, Suzanne has close on 20 years of business experience and is an expert in communication in a variety of forms - creative, technological, media, marketing, cross-cultural - and in how it is used - in business, in non-profits, in academia and as a way to inform, persuade, motivate and sell.

Following a successful career in the corporate world, she founded her first business 2004, a creative studio that evolved over 13 years into a productive creative agency with over 400 clients. She sold the business in 2017. Being the maverick that she is, she has also started several side businesses and initiatives over the years, including an African travel portal, a women's network, an event promotion platform and a children's audio story subscription service, amongst others.

Suzanne's current projects include Living Innsbruck, Illume, Kreativer Konnex, and The Keeper of Lost Tales.

In her spare time, she is a voracious reader and champion of literacy, a community-builder, a fish-hugger, an entertainer, a gardener, a walker, a collector of stories, and a writer and illustrator. She writes and draws on her blog, Sea Change.
