Sue Hadfield and Gill Hasson are both teachers who believe it is possible to achieve what you want in life. Sue taught English in comprehensive schools for twenty years and also ran the school libraries. She has spent the last ten years teaching adults creative writing, study skills, assertiveness, and career and personal development at University of Sussex and for community groups.
Sue also delivers workshops for foster carers on how to encourage children’s resilience in schools. She teaches their children on a one to one basis and believes that these are some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children in our society.

She works at Sussex University teaching community development, career and personal development, critical thinking and academic skills. Gill also runs training sessions for social workers, youth workers, teachers and parents, on a range of issues such as the psychology of teenagers.
