Susan Campion is a creative and innovative change agent who works with business leaders to crystallize, scope, and execute emerging business strategies. She specializes in bringing disparate groups and individuals together to deliver outstanding results. She’s a motivating leader who is comfortable working across cultures, in diverse industries and organizations, and in complex and rapidly-changing environments.
Susan believes the inspiration and catalysts for advancing organizations can be found in many places; and that businesses succeed by working with the imagination and talents of their people.
As a founder of Giant Steps, Susan is creating a community for learning and innovation by bringing together path-forgers from the entrepreneurial and artistic communities. From an idea developed with Kwame Tsikata (M.anifest), she’s created a forum for exchanging ideas, tools, and experiences; for fostering innovative and “unlikely” collaborations; and for constructively blurring the boundaries between business and art.
Susan is an adjunct faculty member at the University of St. Thomas, where she teaches in OPUS School of Business, and the University of Minnesota, where she teaches in the Arts and Culture Leadership program. She also spends time advising and mentoring young artists and entrepreneurs.
Prior to starting Camponovo Consulting, Susan worked for 3M for twelve years, where she held management positions in Italy, France and the United States. She holds an M.S. in Industrial and Management Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (NY) and a B.S. in Mathematics from the College of William and Mary (VA) and has completed additional course work in Stanford University’s executive education program. She’s also a Six Sigma Master Black Belt.
A global citizen who’s lived in five countries and traveled to many more, she’s been collecting good ideas and good music from all over the world for most of the last 20 years.
