"Sue has a proven track record in delivering major cultural and sports-based programmes and in championing innovation. She is highly collaborative and well networked, as well as being focused and results-driven. I have had the pleasure of working with Sue for a number of years, both through CLOA (London) and the London Regional Cultural Improvement Group, and have found her knowledge, skills and support invaluable. She is dedicated to the cultural and sport agendas, always exudes enthusiasm and is exceptionally personable. I cannot recommend her highly enough."

Toni Ainge, Chair, Chief Leisure Officers Association (London)

"Sue has been a great support to library services in London and has helped the sector to both respond to current challenges and prepare for the future. This includes her work with the London Library Change Programme and more recently in leading Love Libraries Love Volunteering, a pan London project to strengthen local communities by providing quality volunteering opportunities in London. She was instrumental in devising and getting this project off the ground. The results have been impressive, with over 3,000 volunteers signing up in the first year and over 54,000 volunteering hours being delivered, an equivalent of almost £500,000 of additional support for library services at the front line. Both these projects have been designed to accelerate sector led improvement and leave a lasting legacy for library services in London. Sue managed to raise over £500,000 of external funding to be invested into these projects."

Mike Clarke, Chair (2010-12), Association of London Chief Librarians

"Sue shows tremendous enthusiasm and focus in all aspects of her work. Having managed several regional improvement projects Sue is well versed in the complexities of working across borough boundaries and influencing colleagues to deliver towards common goals. I have worked with Sue on the innovative 'Love Libraries Love Volunteering' project, which Sue has project managed methodically and effectively. Sue ensures that projects are managed to time and is outcome focussed. The success of the library volunteering project is evidence of her ability to be able to manage large-scale projects from beginning to end with minimal resources."

Anthony Hopkins, Head of Library & Heritage Service, London Borough of Merton

"In late 2011 I was beginning the detailed planning for the Diamond Jubilee visit to Valentines Park by HM The Queen in late March 2012. This was to coincide with the opening of a 4 day art and design festival showcasing work from the Tate, the Design Museum and major London universities.  I knew I needed help and I naturally thought of Sue Thiedeman. Once she was on board the daily hysteria reduced to mere panic. Her sense of order and her ability to cajole and motivate others were the key ingredients in what turned out to be a fantastic royal visit and a festival which brought happiness and community togetherness to thousands."

Nigel Burch, London Borough of Redbridge

"I have worked with Sue on a number of programmes focussed on improving services within London's museums.  Sue combines an extensive knowledge of London's cultural sector with great people skills, which ensures that she gets the best out of people on an individual or group basis."

Yvette Shepherd, MDO Organisational Health, Museum of London

"It was a pleasure to see the opportunities available to another organisation which finds itself in a challenging context. The time scale for the analysis was incredibly tight and required methodical thinking, analysis, and critical evaluation of the feedback to offer. A whirlwind experience, exhilarating and very constructive.Sue has been impeccable. Very professional. I think more can be made of these opportunities for peer support. I feel they help enormously."
