Testimonials

Paridhi Shrivastava - Technology Director: Amazon Healthcare

Suzanne is a one-of-a-kind talent house that everyone wants to work with.   It is hard to miss her infectious enthusiasm. She is an epitome and powerhouse of talent, expertise, experience, energy, and positivity.  
 
Suzanne has a tremendous executive presence and is a seasoned and engaging facilitator. She loves to tap into the wisdom in the room or over a call and helps them facilitate their own awareness and learning. I have heard people use the words "spectacular, amazing, very engaging, and fun" to describe Suzanne's facilitation style. She customizes her presentation to the needs of the group and organization and provides spot coaching as well as state of art curriculum and the latest brain science.
 
Mike Kelly - CEO: OnUP Systems
 
Each time we connect, I leave our time together feeling better, more energized, more excited by the possibilities, and that's because Suzanne is so generous in every way. She loves ideas, is so passionate for people, has a leadership servant's heart of wisdom and discretion, offers respect to challenge my thinking in pursuit of better together and matches those wonderful attributes with the ability to get work done on time and with excellence. Suzanne is just the best, the absolute best facilitator and coach, and I can't wait to collab with her again - Thank you Suzanne Blake, for who you are, for what you do and for helping me and our mighty company get better at what we do!!  
 
Manosmita Debnath - Senior Manager: Customer Success at Epsilon CXM
 
It was an absolute pleasure to get trained from Suzanne. She is the most lively and enthusiastic trainer I have ever come across. She was in our office for Team Management and Handling Skill training. Normally, I am a kind of a person who does not like such trainings though, however, Suzanne turned things the other way round.
 
I felt so positive attending her sessions. She is super fun to have in your circle. I will be glad if I get a chance to attend another live session of yours. It was an absolute pleasure to get trained from Suzanne.  
 
Amber Asaro - Associate Manager of UX Research and Re-Ops at Red Hat
 
Suzanne brings humor, inspiration, and enthusiasm into the room. I have seen her do this in informal club meetings, formal corporate discussions, trainings, and just in hallway conversation. Suzanne exudes sincere concern for others. She listens to the needs of employees, observes their skill sets, and inevitably encourages them to be a better version of themselves.
