Sue Ellson Past and Present Clients

I have assisted a wide variety of individuals, organisations and community groups and I am always open to discussing how I can be of service to you (or I can recommend you to someone else who may be able to assist).

I have helped out in both paid professional roles and voluntary* professional and assistance roles (indicated with a star*). Where you can see two stars **, it means that I have completed paid and voluntary work for the organisation.

Below is a list of both past and present clients.
