Suzi

Suzi Jamil is the Owner and Director of Think Inc, the Producer of Islam & The Future of Tolerance, and a self-confessed sneakerhead.

When we last talked to Suzi on Uncommon, we discussed how her event business facilitates conversation around modern society. But, with an income stream derived mainly from ticket sales, we were curious to find out how she’s pivoted to survive and weather the COVID-19 storm.

In this episode we covered:

  • COVID-19: Humanity’s scarification

  • Adapting business & embracing digital

  • Content supply and demand 

  • Australia’s future with China

  • The events industry currently
