The Professor of Collaborative Leadership conducted three face-to-face in-depth interviews with Sue, covering a range of topics and particularly concerning the inspiration for her fantastic fundraising efforts which date back to the early 2000s and the remarkable success story of the charity she helped co-found and now leads.
