Suzanne Barry

Suzanne enjoyed a diverse career leading up to Bloomsbury Institute. Starting in a marketing agency, she coordinated direct marketing and staff incentive campaigns. Later, she worked in various roles at Hyundai and Porsche, including event coordination, product launches, data segmentation and profiling, magazine publication, and brand management. Her niche became customer retention, specialising in strategic initiatives to transition product-focused businesses towards a customer-centric approach.

During this period, she developed a new way of measuring and managing reputations. Inspired by this, she founded a business and proprietary software platform, collaborating for over 16 years with public sector organisations to enhance standards and transform impressions.

Now, as the Student Staff Liaison Manager and Head of Hospitality and Events, her goal is to create a positive and memorable impression of our Institute through a warm welcome, individualised support, and engaging events. She also serves as a Trustee of our Student Guild and oversees funding applications for students facing financial challenges.


She love all things creative. In lockdown she studied animation and in her spare time she works with the writing community, animating book covers and making video trailers and social media ads for authors and publishers.
