Sue has lived and worked in accountancy at Jackson Scott, in Chessington for the last 28 years. She admits that she learnt book-keeping in pounds, shillings and pence when everything was prepared by hand then typed up on an old Remington typewriter. Now we are decimalised and use cloud computing – the speed of technology is amazing.
Sue joined Kingston Chamber a few years ago and loves the networking and friendly atmosphere so decided to become more involved and take on the role as Financial Director.
Her hobbies are rather varied – vintage motorcycles, speedway, swimming, reading and she is now learning about greenhouse gardening. She is most well known at Chamber events for her Petry and so here is one to help you learn a little more about her:
I’ve recently retired from accountancy
And decided what else I’d like to be.
A business agony aunt I thought
So I could pass on what I’ve been taught
By all the mistakes made in many a year,
So I called myself “Your Listening Ear”.
To date a few have talked to me
And I’ve helped them find a way to see
A route out of their business mess
Together we’ve saved too much stress.
But another route has taken hold.
It’s rather daft, but I’ve been told
My poems lighten up the day
As I can find a way to say
That being in business can be fun
So now a poet I’ve become
