About Susan Munywoki:

Seasoned Communications professional with 12+ years' worth of hands-on experience in delivering high-level communications (corporate, digital and project communication) for various organizations and a wide range of audiences. I am the Lead Consultant at Professional Writers Kenya, which has distinguished itself as a market leader in the region for providing writing, communications, and strategy solutions to a wide variety of clients who are located in Kenya and across the world, including UNICEF, the African Women's Development Fund, the Jassa Centre, SHAG Group of Companies (Somalia), and Benadir University (Somalia). A natural-born storyteller, I am proud to have helped to develop winning narratives and creative strategies for a diverse clientele for over a decade. I also serve as a Director at Kikwetu Foundation, a local NGO, where I am in charge of communications (internal and external) in addition to marketing and fundraising campaigns for our projects. Previously worked as a Project Manager at the Association of Professional Societies in East Africa (APSEA), an NGO where I was in charge of the project management and coordination of a USAID-funded advocacy project, the ‘National Advocacy Program for Governance Reforms’ project. I was responsible for: project communications (project reporting, proposal writing, writing press releases, speeches, policy papers, newsletters, blogs, and social media management); digital marketing; high-level networking and stakeholder engagement with government, civil society, and the media; lobbying and advocacy; community mobilization & outreach; strategic planning; fundraising; and donor relations & management among others. Currently seeking for a new and exciting professional challenge within the corporate world where I will be able to apply my years of experience in communications, strategy, policy development, and project management.
