I have worked with Suzi as Executive Coach over a number of years and spanning a number if important career decision and transitions. Suzi takes an informed and insightful approach and at all times is clued into the key information she needs to help you gain insight and energy from the seemingly impossible tangles you have in front of you; and most importantly undo those tangles and move forward. Suzi is a kind, emphatic person who is always wonderful to spend time with.

Suzi is a very intuitive and experienced coach who has helped me to better understand my strengths and weaknesses. She helped me speak up on issues I was struggling with and I found it very useful to build on my own self awareness on the value that I add. We had three sessions and while these were intensely challenging for me I feel a better person for it.

I had the incredible opportunity to work with Suzi over the last twelve months as my Executive Coach whilst completing the Advanced Leadership Program. Suzi's coaching style was a perfect balance between creating space to be heard, whilst gently and effectively challenging my perspective and assumptions. The conversations we had have stayed with me for a long time after. They have not only improved my leadership capabilities but have also enabled me to improve my personal wellbeing.

I have had the distinct privilege of being part of a leadership program that was expertly delivered by Suzi. The coaching tips that she shared and her knowledge of leadership and mentoring made the experience so valuable in developing my own skills and being able to view things from different perspectives. Suzi is very personable and you can see she strives to connect methods and tools to the issue in a very relevant way that helps to really connect to the practice and establish that skill within you as an individual.

I recently completed the Advanced Leadership Program through Women & Leadership Australia and had the privilege of working with Suzi in her role as a facilitator of the overall program as well as my Executive Coach. What stood out for me was how Suzi was able to quickly focus attention to key development opportunities, using thought provoking questions and application of her immense knowledge and understanding of data and tools in the space of leadership and coaching. She is pragmatic and real in her approach and has a true gift in helping identify high impact strategies that align with one's values and personal situation. I highly recommend Suzi for anyone wanting to take their leadership journey to the next level.

It’s been a wonderful journey being coached by you, Suzi.

broad range of organisations for Women develops a Manifesto. Suzi tailored the
workshop to her audience with seamless and engaging delivery. The group was
able to connect, share and develop tangible outcomes. Suzi was very professional and well prepared and supportive. Thank you, Suzi, I very much enjoyed the day and the interactions.

Suzi is a truly amazing coach! Working with her has made all the difference to both my confidence and career direction. She has helped me identify my key motivators and how to approach work and life in general. I appreciate her ability to listen, probe gently and peel back a problem’s complexity to arrive at a practical solution. Her extensive knowledge of industry best practice and cutting-edge research is second to none. Thank you, Suzi!

There is no doubt the last two years have taken a toll on everyone, but particularly on those in leadership and more so upon inclusive leaders like you, who truly care about those around them. I cannot thank you enough for all you have done over the past 10 years.

Dr Terry Fitzsimmons PhD MBA(Adv) BEc CA – Associate Professor in Leadership University of Queensland Business School

Suzi, I would like to thank you immensely for your time and support. In all honestly, I was totally unprepared for both the coaching sessions that we’ve had so far. I had no idea what I wanted to talk about.
The only thing I knew was that I would remain absolutely honest at all times, and be open to exploring any doorways that our discussions may create. And I was pleasantly surprised with how beautifully you led into conversations that were extremely meaningful, insightful and helpful to me.
You helped me introspect my thoughts, feelings and emotions in such a non-judgemental manner, it was so easy to open up and talk with you! Our sessions brought great clarity to my thoughts, and helped me identify the steps that I now need to take so I can achieve my goals. Thank you once again
for your kind support – you are an excellent coach!”

Shetal J Desai (MTIA) Manager Assurance & Process Improvement.

There is no doubt the last two years have taken a toll on everyone, but particularly on those in leadership and more so upon inclusive leaders like you, who truly care about those around them.
