Susannah Rosenthal, Board Member

 

Before I was a vice president at Mattel, I was responsible for creating new product ideas for Mattel’s iconic brands, like Barbie. I once asked if I could redesign her. I had only been there a few years but they said, “Okay.”
So I bent her stiff arms so she looked alive in her poses. I gave her a smile and streaked her hair. I found a hot-pink satin jumpsuit for her, and when I presented her to the president and vice presidents I said, “Little girls used to win by pursing their lips and batting their eyes, and now they win by putting their hands on their hips and flashing the biggest smile ever.”
I won the President’s Award for Superstar Barbie and my career took off. I hired some exciting talent with unusual points of view, and we explored adding tech to toys of all kinds. Our new goals were to create the future of fun. I’ve seen ideas grow to million-dollar brands, so I believe in our ability to come up with sustainable businesses/services creating the future of Subud.
With that as my background, I am now currently SES USA Chair. I have been attracted to Subud’s emphasis on identifying talent, developing it by “cleaning our feelings and thoughts” and by having members sustain themselves and their families by creating their livelihood, perhaps even creating something truly new that helps the world. Wow, quite a goal.
I want to help people do that, but how? I believe two tools for exploring these goals are humor and fun. So I wonder, what’s fun got to do with solving world problems?
