Sue Peden was keen to contribute to Carers Australia after caring for two of her four children who were both born with a rare, life-shortening genetic disorder and personally experienced the issues faced by carers.
Sue's professional focus is business and brand strategy, consumer insight and stakeholder management, having worked in advertising and communications for more than 25 years - including establishing her own agency, which was sold five years later. Her current business, Sue Peden Communication Consulting, works with a variety of clients from large multi-nations to start-ups.
Sue has a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Melbourne, is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Director and was recently awarded the Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for Significant Service to Community. She is Secretary of Carers Australia, sits on the FARG committee and is also Prsident of Carers Victoria. Sue has been on the board of Carers Australia since 2015.
