EVENT ROOM 2, GALLAGHER HUB

WINTEC CIPY CAMPUS (SEE MAP)

12 AUGUST 1:30-3:00PM      WORKSHOP

P BLOCK WINTEC ANGLESEA ST

Suzy has been a guest lecturer, with her colleague Trevor Plant, at both AUT and ARA – Christchurch, for the last few years.

Primarily their focus has been on creating content for kids as the show Suzy & Friends has invited those students to submit content to play in a series entitled Our Favourite Things. Suzy's workshop will share elements of this and include her thoughts on connection, relationships, acceptance and the importance of listening within the communication of broadcasting (print/radio/screen).

Preference is given to Wintec students for the workshop, but members of the public are encouraged to register to go on the event waiting list.

​This event is hosted by the School of Media Arts at Wintec.

Suzy’s career in broadcasting started, aged 17, at KCC FM in Whangarei; firstly in the copywriting department, with a one hour weekend Album Review slot. When someone called in sick  one weekend, Suzy got to sit in the hot seat as an On-Air DJ and became one of NZ’s youngest radio announcers at that time.

A move to Auckland gave her an introduction to TV and children’s programming. Now, 30 years later, with two children of her own, Suzy’s back in the DJ role with her own children’s radio show and her own YouTube channel; has released two children’s singles,  and is working on the first of a series of books, which will be published in early 2020.

Having long loved words and music she is relishing the blend of them both and her public talk will share why our stories and our songs are so important, particularly for kids.
