"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.“
Amelia Earhart
"The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle."

My Profile

Susan Knodel
Architect and Human Resources Specialist

Susan Honjo Knodel


Architect, I managed many projects in Brazil, Japan and Switzerland. I supervised all the stages of projects as well as the follow-up of building sites (monitoring and evaluation) with different professionals. I have worked closely with clients and other core decision-makers. That has helped to improve my client relation and communication skills to enable me to readily identify and resolve customer needs.

I was also engaged on Master and PhD researches in sustainable environmental design and energy efficiency which gave me a strong understanding of project management frameworks. I was interested on the impact of building design on human behavior, health and well-being.

Nowadays, I leverage my career experiences on Human Resources, mainly on Talent Acquisition and Learning & Development. I realized that my true work fulfilment and purpose are related to people, their well-being in work environment, their career development and integration. Those activities fit properly to my communication, managerial and organisationl-multitaking skills. I am passionate for this dynamic and multicultural work environment. I speak several languages (French, English, Portuguese, Italian,Spanish and little bit of Japanese).

I am currently completing a degree in Psychology and a professional course in Digital Learning Design.
