SUZANNE SMITH- Week 12 Rewind

Read more

CBS Sports director Suzanne Smith is a pioneer for women in TV production. She started her career behind-the-scenes, when there was no road map for women, so she forged one- rising at CBS to become the only woman at ANY network directing NFL games. She’s been a fixture with the network since 1983- working some of the biggest sporting events including Super Bowls, Olympics, NCAA Tournaments, the Masters, and the U.S. Open.

In this short-form REWIND from our episode 11 chat, Smith weighs in on how mentorship shaped her career and the importance of taking advantage of opportunities. She shares her approach to earning the respect of her peers, despite at times, being the only woman in the TV truck.  

Smith covers how to advocate for yourself and build relationships in the business. She exemplifies women supporting women and shares practical ways to stay sharp in Covid, even for those not actively working games.

Smith describes why she treats every NFL game like the Super Bowl and talks about working full-circle NFL moments, with some of the league’s biggest stars.

SUZANNE SMITH- on being the only woman directing NFL games and a trailblazer in TV production

Read more

CBS Sports director Suzanne Smith is in a league of her own- the only woman at ANY network to direct NFL games. Smith joined CBS Sports in 1983, rising up the ranks of TV sports production, despite at the time, no road map for women. Smith shares how she’s advocated for herself while earning the respect of her colleagues. 

In this in-depth conversation, Smith discusses the importance of mentorship and how harboring a little bit of self-doubt made her better. She explains the balance of seeking out feedback and why there aren’t a lot of women YET, at the upper levels of production. 

Smith advocates for women supporting women, something she’s done for years with her Girls Nite production gatherings. She talks about the growing number of women entering production jobs and reveals how she cultivates togetherness on her CBS crew. Smith breaks down her prep leading up to NFL Sunday and reminisces on being a part of some full-circle NFL moments. 

The long-time CBS director offers tangible advice for young people breaking into sports media, during such uncertain times. She talks about the camaraderie of CBS’s all-women sports show, ‘We Need to Talk’ and the reason the show has staying power.

Suzanne Smith: "Running is my therapy"

Read more

Suzanne Smith began running seriously when she tragically lost her twin son Jamie in childbirth.

As she told me, she started running and just hasn't stopped - it has become therapy for her.

Suzanne told me Jamie is on every run with her, and he's inspired her to half marathon PBs - and race wins - multiple marathons and even ultras.

I talked to Suzanne about everything running related, from coping with Covid and the joys of parkrun to her unique marathon diet...

Community Groups Can Be Accountable w/Suzanne Smith

Community Groups Can Be Accountable Why community organizations struggle with accounting and what we can do about it Interview with Suzanne Smith

Suzanne Smith has lived and worked abroad for over 20 years. Her focus is on training and capacity building. She began as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Niger, working at a rural clinic and focusing on child survival. She went on to work in Bangladesh and then Mozambique, where she managed a microcredit program. She then turned her focus to working with community groups, village health workers and nurses, to strengthen outreach and organizational capacity in the midst of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Suzanne has worked in Afghanistan, where she helped design and then implemented a life and work skills training for female high school teachers as part of USAID’s PROMOTE.

She likes to distill complicated processes to their essence and create systems that are simple and easy to understand. Her trainings are accessible, fun, engaging, and most importantly she makes sure people leave feeling good about themselves and confident in their ability to learn new things

Suzanne founded Accountable Partners to make sure community based organizations have the systems, skills and support they need to account for donor funds accurately and transparently, to the last dollar spent.

Oftentimes small partners simply do not know how to fulfill a donor’s accounting requirements. More and more, International Donors and NGOs are partnering with small community organizations to achieve their development goals. While programs are being funded and progress is being made, too often these small partners fail to satisfy their donor’s accounting requirements – requirements that are necessary to a fulfill donor’s fiduciary responsibility. Without clear and accurate financial reports from their partners, donors hesitate to disburse the larger funds necessary to scale up activities, and sometimes small partners may lose their funding entirely. Accountable Partners developed a simplified accounting system specifically for small community organizations. We then created The Accountable Partners Academy so we could teach it. The Academy provides NGO/donor field staff with the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to train their small partners in simplified accounting. We know that simple is transparent, simple is accessible and simple is sustainable. The result of our Academy is accurate and transparent financial reports from small partners to their donors.
