Suzana Benesova

People lead and Signals Festival co-creator

Suzana loves to surround herself with creative minds – hence why she has been working at Catalyst since 2016. Of Eastern European origin, she is an event creator and curator who goes above and beyond for others.

In her role as Catalyst's People Lead, Suzana uses her deep understanding of the needs and core operations of our organisation to advocate for our team's well-being. This includes actively engaging in projects and activities that aim to support and strengthen the community.

“Facilitating workshops that evoke a feeling of direction, agency and, ultimately, a sense of belonging make me really excited about my work here,” Suzana tells us. Co-creating our annual community showcase, Signals Festival, is where her passion really shines. “I get goosebumps if curation is on point. I love this project – it’s always an emotional ride!”

Outside of Catalyst, Suzana puts on her own electronic music nights and is affiliated with collectives like Hölle & Dry. She’s also a DJ. A musician after Catalyst's own heart, she loves a broad range of music: "I don't like to specify one genre.” To collaborate with Suzana on professional projects, head to her LinkedIn.
