Don’t just take our word for it...

Consistently securing top talent

Here’s what our clients have to say.

Susan’s commitment to the series was exemplary

"Susan worked with me on The Big Breakfast, both the Black to Front special and the series. Susan played a pivotal role in securing masses of guests for the series, all in a very fast turnaround and under extreme pressure. Susan's go get 'em attitude, incredible contacts and her hard working attitude bagged us big guests from Daniel Kaluuya, Ellie Goulding, and Sam Ryder to Rita Ora, as well as a Royal Television Society Award for best Entertainment show! Susan's commitment to the series was exemplary, without her, we simply couldn't have booked the amount of guests that we did - she's a real dream to work with!"
  • Rina Dayalji, Executive Producer - The Big Breakfast

I have returned to her time and time again

"Susan has been my 'go to' celebrity booker on many high-profile projects, such as Piers Morgan's Life Stories and the NHS Heroes Awards. I have returned to her time and time again because of her impeccable reputation, impressive contacts book, attention to detail and because she's great fun to work with. She is well known and respected globally, having worked on both sides of the Atlantic and as a result can bag celebrities where, often, other people in the same role, can't. She is also incredibly hard-working and thinks laterally about guest requirements, coming up with ingenious suggestions that often make all the difference, to a TV show or corporate event. She also has the inside track on what's going on in celeb-land."
  • Yvonne Alexander, CEO Jet TV

We couldn’t have done this without her

"Susan worked with us on The Black to Front Project. She brilliantly co-ordinated all the talent ensuring that we secured the very best. She is quick-thinking, thorough, efficient and has a fantastic network of contacts and relationships. Susan’s commitment and tenacity was invaluable. She is also an absolute dream to work with – keeping everyone’s spirits up under extreme pressure. We couldn’t have done this without her!"
  • Emma Hardy, Director of Commissioning Operations, Channel 4 Television

It is a particular skill to convince hugely famous people to appear on screen

"I'd been developing a series about hip hop and the social and political intersections of the genre with colleagues for several months - when it became apparent to us that to achieve the type of ambition and scale we were certain we wanted to reach, we would need a dogged booker to help us find the talent who had instant name recognition and reputational credibility. My producer, Shianne Brown and I were told about Susan Bonitto from our Series Director, Yemi Bamiro, who had successfully worked with her before.

I had the pleasure of working with Susan for almost 8 months and she helped to source, find, negotiate with and persuade the most incredible rap talent to take part. It is a particular skill to convince hugely famous people to appear on screen and speak honestly about their work and trajectory. Susan was able to do that and the incredible roster of names from LL Cool J, Ice T, Fat Joe,, KRS-One, MC Lyte, Roxanne Shante and so many others enabled us to achieve all our aims. The series became known as Fight The Power: How Hip Hop Changed The World. To date we have been nominated for four awards, winning one, the prestigious Royal Television Society Awards in the Arts category.

I cannot thank Susan enough for her dedication, skill, extremely hard work and humour. It was a pleasure to work with her and I hope to again in the future."
  • Helen Bart, Series Producer - Fight the Power: How Hip Hop Changed the World

Ability to troubleshoot as well as secure talent at the very last minute

"Susan has played a key consultancy role to the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation Russian Midsummer Gala Committee. Her approach, connections, methodology and advice has been of enormous benefit to the Foundation and she has secured headline acts for the events. Sue-mo’s calm, clear approach and ability to troubleshoot as well as secure talent at the very last minute has been a great asset."
  • Evgeny Lebedev, Chairman

Her marketing skills proved to be invaluable

"As one of the co-producers on the World Music Awards – Susan’s knowledge and extensive contacts within the industry, coupled with her marketing skills proved to be invaluable."
  • Melissa Corken, Founder of the World Music Awards

It was a pleasure working with her

"Sue-mo booked Mary J. Blige for the televised Laureus World Sports Awards ceremony in Cascais, and Jamiroquai for the Barcelona event. Susan worked tirelessly and tenaciously to help us secure the best music act possible and her efforts, dedication and calm, measured approach paid off both times. It was a pleasure working with her."
  • Guy Sanan, Richemont Group CEO Laureus World Sports Awards

Susan is simply one of a kind… the best!

"Susan’s knowledge across a huge variety of music genres and her versatility as booker, negotiator and artist liaison made her the most important asset to our events in both London and Miami.

She always found us the biggest and most current stars – chart movers and legends alike – and NEVER took an artist’s ‘no’ as a final answer. She persuades aerophobes to fly and even divas to behave. Susan is simply one of a kind… the best!"
  • Andy Ruffell, Founder DanceStar Awards (UK) Ltd & DanceStar USA Inc

She delivered the best possible line-up of talent

"As Celebrity Consultant to the Prince’s Trust Urban Music Festival and talent producer of UMF, Susan Bonitto provided a comprehensive talent search, selection and booking service. Sue-mo’s remit extended to liaison with media partners to ensure attractive artist packages, as well as negotiation with labels and management to secure artists. Susan’s experience, enthusiasm, skills and commitment ensured she delivered the best possible line-up of talent for the Urban Music Festival with the booking of headliner Will Smith a major bonus."
  • CaroI Homden, Commercial Director Prince’s Trust

She always delivered

"I ran EMAP events for 16 years and always booked talent internally as it was the most effective way to secure the big names. That is until I met Susan Bonitto who has a wealth of experience and relationships unrivalled in the industry by any independent talent booker I have ever dealt with. Her professionalism, commitment, dedication, relationships and knowledge of the business made the stress of Talent booking much easier providing piece of mind. She always delivered and so led to the successful appointment for the SH! PWP party in consecutive years and the first ever Kiss Awards."
