Suzie Smith – owner
Suzie is an award-winning marketer with a passion for words.
Having studied journalism at university, Suzie is NCTJ qualified, and edited newspapers, launched magazines and read the news on the radio before moving into a marketing career.
This insight into what people want to read and what the media wants to publish has proved invaluable and led to Suzie winning gold for best practitioner at the CIPR (Chartered Institute of Public Relations) annual awards.
As the owner of Piece of Cake, Suzie knows how to make words work for her clients – whether that’s crafting a press release, blogs, writing social media posts, email marketing or providing the copy for adverts.
Suzie is also a qualified teacher and mentor, and holds a PGCE – professional graduate qualification in education. She is the lead consultant for marketing at Cornwall College, managing and delivering all of the professional qualifications from the CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing). This gives her a unique, academic insight into the world of marketing and enables her to work with dozens of professional marketers every year, taking them to the top of their game.
Since starting Piece of Cake in 2012, Suzie has worked with a close knit team of freelancers that provide their expertise for and on behalf of clients.
For larger tenders and projects, Suzie brings together marketers, graphic designers, photographers and SEO/PPC specialists to ensure every aspect of a client’s needs are met.
