by Diane Wyzga | November 11, 2021 | Guest Podcast, Podcast | 0 comments
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk. You’ll recognize yourself in these true-life stories from women who are walking their lives while their lives walk them and the lasting difference these journeys have made. I’m your host, Diane Wyzga.
Today my guest is Sue Heatherington, writer, catalyst and thinking partner for pioneers, innovators and change-makers who want to cultivate a better change perspective in the world. In 2018 Sue coined the term “Quiet Disruptor” as a short-hand introduction to her unusually broad back story, which includes 10 years as a pioneering public service chief executive. Now, Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting is the title of her newly published book.
Sue is joining us all the way from Swansea, Wales where she writes daily thought-provoking blog posts while inviting us to explore her valley through the lens of her camera. I’ve invited Sue to talk with us about the practice of writing, changing the narrative around conversations and belonging, her manifesto, her book, and most significantly doing it all without shouting. Welcome to the podcast, Sue!

About Sue Heatherington
Sue Heatherington offers fresh sight from the quiet edge and believes that our words shape our reality. She is a writer and host of Waterside Conversations from a little valley in South West Wales.
Sue coined the phrase ‘quiet disruptor’ in 2018 when trying to make sense of the journey of her life and work. Her book Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting was published in January 2021 and has been read across the globe.
Her short daily pause points combine words of inspiration, provocation and encouragement, with a beautiful photograph from her home in the valley, which she shares with her husband, learning disabled brother and a herd of alpacas.
Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting is available on Amazon in printed and Kindle versions. The short ebook Being Seen and Heard… Quiet Disruptors: Companion Notes for People Professionals is also available for free to those who have the main title
