Susan Foley Rocco

Susan Foley Rocco is the Founder and Host of Women to Watch Media® – the premier global media platform for women leaders. With a professional background in marketing, communications, sales and advertising, Susan identified the need for a stand-alone multimedia platform profiling women leaders in order to inspire and encourage more women to pursue leadership roles worldwide.

Susan’s goal is to bring attention to not only the successes but to the challenges, doubts, and even failures faced across the board by women trying to make it in their chosen careers. Through each intimate interview and personal life story shared, Her primary mission remains to connect, educate and encourage women in order to strengthen their self-esteem and help them find their calling in life.
