Sue Ann is a natural leader. The good kind – a grounded, confident leader that knows how to listen. She sees the potential in others and flat out insists that they reach this potential. It is almost as if, upon realizing a person’s potential, she says ” It is no longer good enough for you to try, you have to do this. This is your calling”. And so with encouragement and support, she allows people ...

After several cancellations from other confirmed keynote speakers, we were left in a lurch 4 days before our event was to take place. With high-level executives and customers traveling to our event, we needed not only a great keynote speaker, but someone who had some valuable content to deliver. Sue Ann came through on both counts - a consummate professional who ...

Sue Ann’s help in positive reinforcement turned to be indispensable during my time as a MBA student/candidate. I was so blown away by Sue Ann’s phenomenal insight into the laws of the mind- how to remain focused in times of stress. I have always been an upbeat and cheerful person, but seemed to always lack the confidence and guts to tackle my dreams. Now I know why!! Sue Ann helped me re-program my way of ...
