Motivational Speaker

“Sue spoke at an event held in March to celebrate the work done in women’s business mentoring by our project (www.wavewales.co.uk). Sue was the ideal choice of speaker: professional, warm, engaging and fully ‘on-message’ with our objectives for the event. We received a great deal of positive feedback from our audience of women business owners who appreciated Sue’s practical approach and hints and tips for business mentoring. The commitment cards were also a great touch and I hope that our audience have been motivated to complete their actions. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sue’s services as a speaker to contacts within the sector.” Jess Mahoney

“As the opening speaker at our conference, Sue immediately engaged the delegates with her bespoke, fascinating and inspirational interactive presentation.  Sue’s professional, enthusiastic and inclusive delivery, coupled with fantastic photography and thought-provoking questions were ideal for the conference theme. Delegates fed back that they found Sue motivational and helped empower them to be confident, take calculated risks and believe in the potential of the team to secure essential changes for improvement”.  Bracknell Forest Council

Our audiences have described her as having delivered well structured, well presented, thought-provoking and interesting sessions which provide great take-away messages that can be translated easily into the workplace.

Leadership Development

I know the other candidates were, like me, very impressed with the Leadership Academy programme and its delivery. I thought it well structured and delivered at the right pace. It also allowed for some very meaningful discussion between the candidatesDelegate on Rugby Football Union Leadership Academy

In this workshop Sue made you think of “politics” in a positive way and demonstrate that actually it does not have to be such a negative thing to avoid but instead is the reality of today’s corporate life and if one wanted to be successful in an organisation, it is something to reckon with. Understanding the Politics at work

Attending your leadership and management course all those years ago was a turnkey event in my life. It was the first personal development course I attended. Your gift to all of us on this course was to demonstrate to us how self belief is the source of all success. Leadership and Management programme, University of Bath

I’ve been it a real turmoil as to where I’m going and what I’m doing and have found it difficult to get the oomph! back.  After the workshop I felt really inspired again – I really appreciated the advice and input on focusing and prioritising – all things I know but had forgotten to practice. Kickstart your Motivation workshop

Sue worked with me over four sessions and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience both in terms of the personal effect it had upon me and as an opportunity for me to study another practitioner at work.

Her approaches were innovative and thought provoking and I have been able to steal several strategies for my own portfolio! GS, Head Teacher

Coaching Supervisor

Sue has been my coaching supervisor for nearly a year. In that time we have had three telephone supervision sessions which I have found to be of enormous benefit. Sue is clearly a very knowledgeable and experienced coaching supervisor and I feel that I have learned a great deal about myself and my coaching through these sessions. Sue’s questions are appropriately challenging and I often find myself arriving at unexpected insights which have a significant positive impact on the quality of my coaching. Sue has also recommended some excellent resources on specific topics.  On a more personal level, Sue is warm, approachable and supportive. These attributes enable her to create a very safe supervision environment and I would have no hesitation in bringing concerns or difficulties to our supervision.  Sarah Dowling, UCL Internal Coach

Executive CoachingAs someone who continually seeks to improve my coaching, I have found my supervision sessions with Sue a safe place to explore and lay bare my fears and inhibitions when coaching. Sue has provided really valuable insight and feedback to help me explore these deeper places. I trust her process and continue to get real value from the time and space she helps me to create.  Annie Richardson, Quantum Corporate Coaching

I find my supervision sessions with Sue invaluable. Right from the start she quickly understood how my mind works and in response gives me the space to think out loud and relays summaries of what seem to be my key points in the moment using visual aids. I find myself replying with “Yes, that’s exactly it!”. She gently challenges me and has provided useful resources about approaches to coaching to encourage me to think laterally. At the end of each session I am all fired up and ready to take action for my progress, so I can ensure I provide a simpler and tighter package of services for my clients. For me it really helps that Sue takes her inspiration from traveling and challenges in the great outdoors, as I am similar. From a professional point of view, it is reassuring to know she is an Association for Coaching accredited Coach, a fellow NLP Practitioner and an entrepreneur in her own right. As my supervisor Sue is a role model for my future career and an absolute delight to work with.  Lisa Rendell, Meadowren
