Welcome to Professional Santa Claus School.
Started training Professional Mall Santas back in 1983! Her company ran 14 large malls’ Santa Photoland operations in Denver, taking business from the large national companies. So many parents requested Santa home visits (and Susen encouraged her Santas to enjoy doing those in addition to their 4-5 4 hour shifts each week.) The home visits spiraled! And the corporate events she planned via her Event Planning company (American Events & Promotions) boomed needing quality Santas, Mrs. Claus, Elves and headed Costume Characters.
Susen reduced her mall business back to a maximum of 6 centers and focused on the Santa visits that gained her Santas more income, less stress and way more fun!
Today Susen manages 6 large prestigious mall locations and provides over 1300 Santa visits each season.
Susen’s Professional Santa Claus School (PSCS) has grown and been recognized by the international media from Cape Town South Africa, Korea, Italy, Great Britain and of course the USA. Numerous movies/documentaries about the Santa industry have included Mesco’s PSCS. But more than that, the Santa graduates have achieved instant success using her many innovative and unique ideas. Even Santas who have worked as Santa for over 20 years are amazed at what they learn that could have advanced their careers years ago had they attended sooner. Each year there is a waiting list.
Susen reminds her Santa Students…
“SANTA IS ABOUT THE CHILD, NOT the Money!
“CHRISTMAS IT IS ABOUT THE MAGICAL EXPERIENCE SANTA GIVES HIS AUDIENCE!”
“SANTA STARTS IN THE HEART.. Not the Santa suit, the beard or belt buckle!”
“IT WILL ALL ‘POP” ONCE YOU LEARN TO THINK LIKE SANTA CLAUS”
Attendees and Graduates of PSCS get 35 weeks of pre-conference education and 11 months of support. They bond into a tight, loving, caring FAMILY of close friends for life! It’s 5 day of the most memorable days of your life! And Graduates return to school over and over for just a bit more than the cost of their food! WOW!
2015, in addition to the Labor Day Santa Conference in Denver, Susen will begin customizing one and two day sessions for groups of Santas across the USA!
In April 2014, Susen was approached by a magnificent new company, (Talk to Santa,) with a powerful management team, the right ethics of helping others (Toys for Tots fundraiser), incredible sponsors, off the charts technology and the right attitude towards handsomely rewarding their Santas. Susen was asked to be the National Santa Talent coordinator in this new arena of Santa Clausing… thus began the journey of developing a program to support, educate and train professional Santas who had no access to this type of training to BE ONLINE Santas (because it did not exist for the masses of Santas!) So here it is!! P.O.L.E.S. (Professional OnLine Education for Santas)
At the next Santa convention, gathering or conference, stop by the Professional Santa Claus School Trade show booth to meet and chat with Susen! You’ll recognize us! Just look for the YELLOW!!!
Thank you for joining us on this exciting, continuing Santa Claus educational adventure!
