Susan Lisovicz’s reporting career includes 25 years at CNN and CNBC, where she covered business stories such as diamond mining in South Africa, micro-lending in Bangladesh and the handover of the Panama Canal. She is best known for her frequent reports from Wall Street, which included the dot-com boom, 9/11 and the Great Recession of 2008.

She has interviewed many of the world’s best-known executives, including Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. She anchored several specials for CNN and was pictured on the cover of Businessweek for a story titled, “What the Market is Telling Us.”

She has media-trained dozens of business executives in the U.S. and Europe on best practices in public communication. She also has taught at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism and William Paterson University, New Jersey.
