Susan Fant


Education. Innovation. Foresight.

What Susan Does.


Education is our best chance for a competitive advantage in a global marketplace.


I build programs and actionable research that teach students and professionals how to manage and market in a new, digital world.


Can you teach someone to be innovative, or are they simply born with innovation?


I create innovation coursework, review innovation tools, and speak on innovation with organizations and conferences.


Foresight is the art and science of understanding the future. 


I coach in personal and professional foresight to guide individuals and businesses in finding return on investment in

 their future.


about Susan .

I am an instructor in the marketing department at the University of Alabama and Corporate Director of our Masters of Marketing (MSM) program. I created the Masters of Marketing Specialization in Digital and Social Media Marketing, which is one of the first in the nation at this level after official accreditation. I am continuously interested in the future of education, especially online education and innovation/technology management. 


I combine my interests in education, innovation, and foresight to create programs in new technology development, personal branding, millennials, and innovation for personal coaching and business use.  I have written and presented one of the first whitepapers on Alabama Millennials -'s Young Professionals Millennials of Alabama study.


When I work with companies, I work to produce actionable solutions. I identify problems and questions and I think through the best solutions for your time and your budget alongside you. There are no leangthy client pitches and run-arounds, only real results. Recently, I have been featured in the SAP's The Customer's Edge, Birmingham Business Journal, Alabama Inc, MIT Sloan Executive Education's Innovation @ Work,Venture Beat and  PR News' first Social Media Guidebook for digital marketing.
