Clear expectations, a shared vision and a leader who models the way help team members chart a course for success.

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.
