Susan V. Morris
I am an entrepreneur at heart, strategist to the core, and sociologist by training. Advising companies to create, adapt, and optimize products, services, and spaces based on how people work, live, and play is my forte. And my inspiration. I simply love to observe people in their daily lives, zoning in on the decisions they make. I then apply this information to help businesses achieve long term success.
Demographics. Consumer lifestyle trends. Marketing. These are my comfort zones and my areas of expertise. My experience ranges from corporations to startups, all over the world. I enjoy bringing endeavors from concept to fruition whether it be co-founding development companies like NewHeight Group to playing key roles at brands like Marriott International and HQ/Regus to guiding treasured nonprofits such as Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.
Recently I started a 5-year term as the Honorary Consul for Canada in Maine. Yes! I was born, raised, educated, and employed in Canada prior to moving the US. I report to the Consulate General of Canada in Boston and work with the Boston-based team (25 talented individuals, each with an expertise) to identify opportunities for collaboration between Maine and Canada in areas including trade, investment and innovation, government, and arts and culture.
