"For the last few years I’ve been interested in leadership development opportunities but something was holding me back. Working with Suzanne helped me recognize the strengths I bring to my leadership role as an introvert and how to leverage these when working with others. Suzanne’s inviting and friendly approach made me feel comfortable from the onset, enabling me to open up and share my challenges and drawing out my views, thoughts, and insights as we worked on my leadership growth. Together we came up with tips, strategies and solutions, enabling me to bring my best to the role I play in various areas. Increasing my focus on positive thinking, catching myself when I’m over-thinking, celebrating my successes and achievements and recognizing the advantages of being an introverted leader are a few of my take-aways from working with Suzanne. I highly recommend Suzanne as an executive and leadership coach to anyone who wants to take their leadership skills to the next level."
Lance Nose, Director, Finance & Administration, Association of BC Forest Professionals

"In addition to her energy and enthusiasm, Suzanne brings a deep understanding to her work. Her workshop enabled our students to gain a better understanding of their strengths and recognize their areas of growth as well as discover how individual differences and personality preferences could impact interactions – for better and for worse! During the workshop, the students developed strategies to improve their effectiveness in their relationships not only with their cohort, but also with other students as well as their with their parents."
