Susan’s secondary school student sessions are delivered with clarity and humour and will challenge all students to stop and think about what they do online and what the consequences might be for them not only today but for the rest of their lives. After a few minutes, Susan has even the most challenging audience listening intently as she recounts her extensive experience in this space, from her first report of cyberbullying in 1994 to her training with the FBI, her visit to Facebook’s HQ & her work with elite sports clubs and other organisations. Two-year levels can be in the same presentation if a suitable venue is available. The theme of this 90min or double period session is Respect and Responsibility. Schools love Susan’s ability to connect with her audience and tell it like it is. Students respond to the clear way Susan presents which leaves them with no doubt about what they need to do to stay safe online.
