Five Key Ways to define yourself and Turbo Boost you Career: TEDx Belfast Women



Are you worried about what the future holds…


  • Will your current job still exist in five years?

  • What emerging trends will make or break your business?

  • Could your investing portfolio vaporise tomorrow?

Do you follow the news, read the papers, listen to the pundits… but at the end of the day, you still have only a very vague idea of what it all means for you – for your specific situation? Do you feel like you are constantly tossed on a sea of conflicting advice and contradictory information?

Do you wish forecasters who love the sound of their own voice would stop theorising endlessly, and finally give you actionable strategies that you can implement, starting now, so that you are ready for the future?


Would you like to watch economic trends unfold with serenity

and the knowledge that you have it in your power

to act with those trends?


Susan Hayes CFA is a Chartered Financial Analyst. She speaks to audiences worldwide and trains international professionals so that they can be prepared when the tides of emerging trends reach their shores. (Hire Susan Hayes Culleton as a trainer and speaker)

At every stage, Susan delivered over and above expectations.”

And she has the experience to help you adapt to those changes with gusto. A business founder and owner, she also invests her own money in the markets successfully. Her investing portfolio weathered the recession and her business was created in the teeth of that same recession — but was profitable in its first quarter.

“Hi Susan, Good to meet you last night at IIBN. Nice to get some positive economics that’s not just “hope” but with scientific data to back up that a recovery is very active in Ireland.”

She scored the highest in feedback from our team that has ever come out of any training we have had in our office. Fun, highly entertaining, authentic and very knowledgeable on your subject matter.”

The feedback received from the Ambassadors, diplomats and government officials present was immensely positive as, once again, Susan delivered a presentation that was rich in information yet to the point and easy to understand.”
