Susan Redden Makatoa
Group General Manager, Corporate
Ogilvy PR


Chair: EWA’s Advisory Panel

Susan Redden Makatoa is an award-winning communications expert who has deep experience working with public and private companies, NGOs and government. In her role at Ogilvy PR, she provides strategic counsel on reputation building, advocacy, internal change and issues management. Known for her ‘nose for news’, Susan creates influential and effective campaigns closely aligned with business objectives. Susan also works with Palliative Care Australia and sits on the boards of Tresillian Family Care Centres, Together Let's and the advisory panel of EWA.

Susan recognises that there is still work to be done in promoting opportunities for women in senior ranks. To this end, the provision of more networking and mentoring opportunities, flexible work practices and the inclusion of suitably-qualified women in shortlists for executive positions are among the suggestions she makes.

Susan also believes in the power of individuals to accelerate this process by changing their own work practices.
