2022 May Go Down In History As The Year Of Reinvention The signs of being stuck in a rut and needing to reinvent yourself are subtle at first. The annoyance with your daily routine. The reluctance to get to work on time. The frustration with not being able to...
You have to Slow Down Before You Can Speed Up Again. You can picture it. You’re driving down the highway. The pavement is dry, the sun is out and it’s a great driving day! You’ve got some tunes on the radio and you’re singing along. You’re in cruise control. And for...
Make decisions for the business you want to have versus the one you have right now I walked into a sweet little, sunshiny, room in my house this morning to write my blog post for the month. My eyes lit on the beautiful Christmas Cactus plant in this room that was...

Hi! I’m Susan. Leadership Coach. PR Strategist. Community Builder. Family Adventurer. I love life. Love my family. Love my work and love to travel. And I’ve never been very good at taking “no” for an answer. I’ve never been very good at sitting back and making choices about what I wanted to spend my time on, because quite frankly, I wanted it all. How could I have a fulfilling career and personal life too, without giving anything up?
These are choices that women, in particular, seem to have to make every day. How can we have a fulfilling career and a dynamic family life? How can we figure out what should be our priorities so what’s most important to us doesn’t suffer? How can we admit – out loud – that sometimes our achievements at work do mean more to us than our family, while often we will choose family over work? How can we build successful careers in the face of equally achieving spouses, children and big life choices?
It’s called Balance. It’s called figuring out our priorities, confidently living our lives, creating careers and building businesses that serve us. It’s called having it all at the same time. Is it possible? I’m here to tell you that YES it is!
Meet Susan. She’s a career-loving, family-centred, community-building Mom who would love to coach you to your truest answers to help you build that career, that business, that life that you know is possible for you.
PUBLIC RELATIONS STRATEGY
Strategic Public Relations connects businesses and organizations to their clients, customers and investors by building effective relationships with them. A good communications and public relations strategy will ensure an organization’s goals are being met, in part, because they have built effective ways to communicate with their audiences.
Susan formed Elford Communications in early 2003, shortly after resigning from her corporate communications role in a major international energy company, in an effort to achieve more work/life balance for her young family while still meeting her desire to build effective communication programs for organizations so that their voices could be heard and their strengths celebrated.
Today, Elford Communications focuses its 25 years of experience on serving the small business owner and not-for-profit organization as Susan and her team mentors, teaches and leads its clients to creating public relations programs that showcase their strengths and build their reputations.
