About Susan Murphy:
Susan has in-depth knowledge and experience in the AEC industry. She has spent the last twenty-nine years helping architects, engineers and construction firms hone their presentation and interview skills.
Murphy, as most know her, has had a mapquest worthy career path. In high school and college, she worked in retail and as a fashion coordinator, went on to teach high school English, moved to the travel industry, where she began as an international tour director and ended as Director of Travel Industry Marketing for Club Med.
A career change found Susan at Communispond, the world’s leading communication skills consultant at the time, and fate led her to a SMPS National Conference, where she filled in for a cancelled speaker and was smitten by the industry.
Susan founded Murphy Motivation and Training to focus on the AEC world and thinks she is the luckiest woman on the planet to have found her niche.
Susan divides her time between Beaufort, SC and Bozouls, France. When she isn’t teaching, coaching or writing, she hikes with her husband, Ullrich Klamm, and her rescue boyfriends, Puppy Boy Frankie, and Jean Jacques, the French Orphan cat. None of them is very impressed with her training abilities.
Susan also writes an advice column “Aunt Bossy: Dear Abby on Steroids” which can be found in the “Lowcountry Weekly.”
