An accomplished leader, coach and director, Susan helps individuals and organisations identify their blind spots, find their strengths and achieve their goals. She is a natural problem solver, well-known for her highly successful, light-hearted, ‘outside the box’ approach, with a talent for not only spotting opportunities, but also creating them.
Susan takes the time to get to know her clients and their unique challenges, and then works with them to develop individual, tailored solutions.
Always innovative, Susan enjoys capacity building and driving performance. Her skill as a trouble shooter, analytical ability, pragmatic approach and political savvy result in sound advice and guidance with strong and lasting results.
With a network that expands across Tasmania, Australia and internationally, Susan enjoys working with organisations big and small, and people at all stages in their career.
