Susanne Mitchell is a writer, media professional, self-professed kitchen sink philosopher and author of The Naked Truth About PERIMENOPAUSE. She has helped businesses tell authentic stories through written and video content via her own small media consultancy.
Susanne has 30 years of experience working with broadcasters, including the BBC Disney, ABC Australia and NBC America on feature films, documentaries and television drama. Though she turned down the opportunity to work with Sir David Attenborough at the BBC’s Natural History Unit – a youthful decision she laments – Susanne has mingled with movie stars and travelled with the legendary former Australian prime minister Bob Hawke.
Daughter-in-law to the late Warren Mitchell, a British actor best known for playing Alf Garnet in Til Death do Us Part, she admits he played an important role through her 20s and 30s. Encouraging Susanne to expand her understanding of the world, Warren challenged her to have the courage of her convictions and to seek the truth, a pursuit that heavily influences her work.
A creative storyteller who now calls Australia home, Susanne is interested in the human condition and will engage with anyone and everyone in her search for answers to our greatest challenge – how to live a life of purpose while contributing to society and reaching our highest potential.
Her second book, The Naked Truth About YOU, Unlock the Secret to a Kick Arse Life, will be released in late 2021. It’s a refreshing and compelling look at today’s hottest self-development topics that weaves a potent thread of philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience through an engaging narrative of true stories.
