“Mango are the best connected people in the education sector. Nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to do more, be more, help more. They are great people to work with. They always act as if they are on your side.”
Neil Watkins, Think IT
Sue is an education specialist who started her career as a primary school teacher, before spending the next 18 years in marketing and PR. During her four years at Toshiba Information Systems in its PC division, Sue noticed that the company’s incumbent PR agency struggled to recognise the unique nature of the education sector and appreciate its requirements, or to “speak its language.” She established Mango Marketing in 2001 to bring her sector experience to education technology. Such is Sue’s dedication to the education sector and its stakeholders, and drive to consistently deliver results for her clients, her very first client is still with Mango Marketing today! Sue currently spends her time between Mango Marketing in the US and the UK, overseeing all client accounts.
