Incredible Sheffield Girls’ alumna, Suzanne Liversidge, is nominated for the most innovative leader in Europe in the Financial Times

Suzanne Liversidge studied at Sheffield Girls’ in the 1980s, and is now Global Managing Partner of law firm, Kennedys. We are delighted to share the news that Suzanne has been recognised as one of the most innovative leaders of a law firm in Europe in the Financial Times. The award celebrates individuals who have made bold strategic moves to help drive growth within their firms, even in the middle of a global economic crisis.

When describing Suzanne, The Financial Times said: “Suzanne Liversidge has delivered an ambitious growth strategy for Kennedys”. Suzanne has made sure that her staff were her priority during the pandemic. She is an advocate for authentic leadership and strives to promote a culture of kindness throughout the global organisation. She has fond memories of her time at Sheffield Girls’ and is still in touch with a lot of her friends from school, visiting them around the world when her job takes her abroad.

Speaking about her nomination, Suzanne said “I am very flattered to get that recognition, but accept it on the basis that this is a team effort from Kennedys and not an individual performance. I remain a very proud Sheffield Girls’ pupil and always reflect positively on the role the school and its staff played in my personal development.”

Suzanne is the first ever female global managing partner of a top 30 law firm. We couldn’t be prouder to hear of another success story of a woman forged at Sheffield Girls’!
