Suzy Richman Consulting has successfully provided a range of services for clients including:

  • United Synagogue’s Marriage Enhancement Programme (MEP) – interim Manager of an educational service which is provided primarily for engaged couples to spend time with a trained tutor to understand more about the Jewish perspective on marriage and what it entails so they can make informed decisions for themselves.
  • Jewish Bereavement Counselling Service (JBCS) – as one of their bereavement counsellors for the last 20+ years, it was easy for me to be working on various projects for this vital bereavement counselling service to help ensure that the Jewish community are aware that JBCS are there for them following the loss of a loved one.
  • March of the Living UK – managing the development, fundraising, strategy and community engagement in addition to going onto campus at universities across the UK to recruit students to join that year’s March.  I have twice been the lead on heading up the ‘Survivor Care’ for the wonderful survivors that join the trip including recruiting a team of volunteers as well as taking care of a group of survivors myself.  March of the Living is an international, educational programme that brings Jewish people from all over the world to Poland on Yom HaShoah (annual Jewish Holocaust Remembrance Day) to march from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built during the Second World War with 275 people attending from the UK.  Its mission is to bring many Jewish people to key places where the Holocaust took place to help them understand the world and the lives that were destroyed. The experience is intensified by sharing these events with Holocaust survivors leading to a revitalised commitment to Judaism, Israel and the Jewish people.
  • Learning from the Righteous – advising this important educational charity on a strategic level to move forward and expand their services to teach more and more school children aged between 10 and 14 from a range of religious and cultural backgrounds about the stories of acts of rescue and resistance by non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.  Their mission is to promote respect and mutual understanding by (a) broadening children’s knowledge of the Holocaust in a fact-based, age-appropriate way (b) supporting teachers with training programmes (c) using examples of “the righteous” to demonstrate our shared humanity (d) celebrating the “courage of the few” who chose not to be bystanders and (e) encourage them to devise practical ways of making a difference to the lives of others. I recently accompanied a group of 14 educators on a trip to Warsaw to help them understand the Holocaust giving them the tools to be able to teach this to their students.
  • The Board of Deputies of British Jews – acted as a “bridge” while the organisation’s administration was going through a restructure initially for a 3 month period.  I was actively involved in the recruitment for a new Director of Operations & Finance as well as assisting with the day-to-day operations management, which included implementing the installation of a new IT server, researching and advising on CRM systems and on strategies to strengthen the administration department.  I continued with this role until December 2017 on a one-day-a-week basis to assist in seeing this through.  The Board of Deputies is the only democratically elected, cross-communal, representative body advocating for the UK Jewish community at Government level dealing with issues such as antisemitism, extremism, education, religious freedoms, interfaith and social action
  • Yom HaShoah UK – part of the team running the 2017 and 2020 (virtual) annual ceremonies to commemorate the Holocaust which was attended by 5,000+ people in London.  The aim was to create a greater awareness of Yom HaShoah, as the annual Jewish Remembrance Day for victims of the Holocaust, and promote an understanding of its importance and encourage its observance by present and future generations of the UK.  I led on the all the administration leading up to the event and played a key role on the day
Suzy has been such a huge asset to the organisation. She has helped us with governance, a fundraising dinner and volunteer management. She has many skills which we have benefitted from and always goes above and beyond the role to ensure the charity prospers. I always feel things are in safe hands when Suzy is involved.

Suzy's capacity to assess a situation, determine the best strategy to achieve the right objectives, and to work effectively to implement that strategy, is exemplary. She is an exceptional asset to any endeavour.

Suzy and I worked together on Yom HaShoah UK, organising the National Commemoration with over 4,000 attendees and several dignitaries.
Suzy is a phenomenal organiser who would be an asset for any project. She's a great team player and gets on with the job in hand to complete the tasks. Suzy was always quick in offering solutions and implemented tasks using her initiative.
I do hope I will get the opportunity to work with her again.
