Susie Adams

Susie Adams is a strategic thinker who can prep you for 60 Minutes when you need it. She’s also the #1 Clemson fan in the Universe.

The Official Line

Susie Adams is a messaging expert and a veteran at communications strategy. She heads up our Executive Coaching, Media Training, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) workshops, and CliftonStrengths® practice.

 Susie has worked side by side with CEOs and top executives planning their first 100 Days or leading a significant change initiative. In her background is a long and successful run as an executive with Duke Energy, where she led corporate communications for the regulated electric business and directed the company’s state-level philanthropic giving.

 When she is not working with Interact, Susie is a member of the adjunct faculty at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, and says she learns as much from her students as they learn from her. 

The Heart Line

Susie is a current event and news junkie and always has one ear to the ground for the latest trend. She authors our annual signature series, “Authentic People,” celebrating the heroes from all walks who have had the courage to be vulnerable and step up when the moment was theirs. 

Susie is an active supporter of the Charlotte Humane Society, a member of the Board of Directors for Charlotte Is Creative (CIC); and a past board member of the Clemson University Foundation. She is also an over-the-top Tiger fan. Like all Interact team members, Susie is a dog lover. “Murphy” was rescued from the Charlotte Humane Society and lives like royalty at Chez Adams.
