Susan Brooks, B. Ed. M. Ed.

Sue calls herself a "retreaded" teacher now that she's moved on from her 16 years of teaching gifted elementary and high school students. Having originated a wide range of creative projects and approaches to challenge her students, Sue has turned her attention to the need to develop creative thinkers inside and outside business.

 

eclecthink, a creativity and innovation consulting company in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, of which Sue is a Founding Partner, came out of her work with schools and community organisations badly in need of alternate views and perspectives. She was a former board member of Biotechnology Education Council, Toronto, a former member of the general board of Knox United Church, Saskatoon, and is a former President of the Business and Profressional Women of Saskatoon.   She is a bilingual French speaker often lamenting that she doesn't get to practice her French enough.

 

Along with her eclecthink partner, she developed and taught a 39-hour credit class for third year students in the Department of Bioresource Policy, Business and Economics, College of Agriculture and Bioresources, University of Saskatchewan entitled "Creative Thinking & Entrepreneurship" and often brings the off-the-wall perspective for presentations, facilitations and workshops.

 

Sue has been awarded the prestigious Prime Minster's Award for Teaching Excellence in Science, Technology and Mathematics. 

 

Sue is a consulting partner with thinkx intellectual capital of Toronto Ontario, and is a facilitator of both Creative Problem Solving V6.1, Center for Creative Learning, Inc. and Productive Thinking, thinkx intellectual capital.  She is also a licenced user of the VIEW-An Inventory of Problem Solving Style.

 

A retired bagpiper, dragonfly collector, shameless opportunist, aspiring half-marathoner and avowed science nerd, Sue loves to spend time entertaining friends and family with gourmet meals and consumes a great deal of time looking at the birds and insects that populate her English country garden.
