Susanne McDonald joined Bee Young Communications and Marketing as a consultant last summer, primarily working as a presentation coach and blogger.  Susanne is an actor and devising theatre artist. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Contemporary Theatre with a minor in Creative Entrepreneurship from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, a classical acting diploma from the London Academy of Dramatic Arts, and has been training and working in theatre for the past 12 years. Although Susanne is primarily an actor and creator, she is committed to helping others through the arts with a business lens. As an entrepreneur and presentation coach, she is particularly interested in teaching voice, speech and breathing techniques to people outside of the theatre industry as to better their vocal health and public speaking abilities.
