"Years ago we had an opening for someone specializing in communications in our agribusiness operation and once Sue came in, it was lights out. There was no comparison! Since those days, there was never a regret in her personality, work ethic, character, responsiveness and most importantly - her ability to write. To this day, 20-25 years later, I have never seen a person more gifted with the written word. To some extent a person's profession is developed. This lady is not only great, but she is gifted and has the "it" factor in beautiful and easy to follow written communication. What a treasure! "
– Tommy Engelke, Executive Vice President, Texas Agricultural Cooperative Council

– Derek Forman, Chairman, Allen Technologies Inc.
"Sue Durio is the top marketing communication professional I have ever worked with. Sue manages a team very well and does even better managing projects from many sources. At THA, she had six different companies in the "family" and managed to be creative, efficient and provide excellent service to all! Sue is 100% self driven. She is an excellent communicator, delivers her message in a concise, honest way and is able to work through difficult or crucial conversations. She is successful in accomplishing goals, helps other achieve their goals and brings resourceful, creative ideas forward!"
– Stacy Cantu, Chief Governance Officer, Texas Health Resources
"Sue and I worked together on many initiatives at Allen Technologies including a full rebranding and go to market strategy. Sue was always great to work with; she is a great listener and able to compartmentalize feedback from different directions and turn it into actionable items. She is very realistic in her approach to projects and always seemed to over-deliver rather than over-promise. I would be happy with work with Sue again in the future."
– Noah Wittman, Account Executive, Social Solutions
"Maestro is the term that comes to mind when I think about Sue Durio. I've known Sue for more than 18 years, during which I had the pleasure of working with Sue at two different companies and independently for years afterwards as a contract PR / Marketing Content Specialist. Above all, I was impressed with Sue's ability to juggle multiple projects, nail the client's brand voice and be an intricate part of the marketing team. And, of course, I can't forget her charm and sense of humor. Sue would be a true asset for any company who needs a strong marketing lead to update their communication strategy and comes with my heartfelt recommendation."
– Tracy O'Shaughnessy, Brand Strategist and Designer

"Having worked for Sue on a variety of projects, I've had the opportunity to observe her leadership as a freelance supervisor as well as the director of a large organization. Her leadership is steady and straightforward, and her skills have no match in the communication and marketing world – she's the "cream of the crop." Her ability to plan and strategize – but also to make it happen – is why Sue is that rare yet invaluable manager."
– Jill Johnson, Writer/Communications Professional
"Sue was always the first person I thought of when someone in my business network was looking for a marketing communications person to help with a project. I never hesitated to recommend her because I knew that no matter how big or small the customer's project, Sue would provide the best service. Sue and I worked together at Amicus before striking out as freelancers so I knew from experience that she was good at what she does. She has a unique talent for staying cool and focused in any situation and I'd work with her again in a minute if given the opportunity."
– Amy Moyle, Systems Engineer
"Intertech had worked with large PR firms but as a relatively smaller account, we felt we didn't always receive the personal attention and value for our investment. Sue was referred to us several years ago,and we have relied on her for contract PR and marketing communications ever since. She understands our business and our market, and finds opportunities to positively position us in the community. She's proactive, accessible and responsive. She asks the appropriate questions to get to the heart of the issue, understands the overall objective we have as a company and helps us find the solutions to get us there. She is able to communicate our business in a compelling way - whether it's website content, a case study or a sales proposal. Sue is a valuable member of the Intertech team."
– Bill Imhoff, CEO, Intertech Flooring

"When Sue accepts an assignment, I don't give it another thought-she consistently delivers a better product than what I originally envision. Sue is a talented and skilled writer, but her value doesn't stop there. I've worked on various projects with her for seven years and she has an impeccable track record for getting things right. Recently, a reader vehemently requested a retraction. Thanks to her level of professionalism and integrity, we had everything we needed to stand firm."
