Communicating a clear direction, developing capability, and inspiring commitment are core success factors for both new and experienced leaders.


Change and transformation are rigorous endeavors with multiple challenges to consider. That’s why I approach my leadership coaching by establishing a thought partnership with clients, in support of their individualized explorations. The goal of each discussion is to produce deep insight and inform plans for a leader’s fullest self expression, impact, and advancement.

My coaching engagements address three areas of leadership:

Executive Support
For executives who want to:

  • Transition to new roles and scope of responsibility

  • Develop collaborative leadership skills

  • Build strategic cross-functional relationships

  • Strengthen executive presence with executive team and Board members

  • Advance their thought leadership in conference speeches and media interview

Leadership Development
For high potential and emerging leaders who need support in the areas of:

  • Foundational leadership skills

  • Navigating the transition from manager to leader

  • Building strategic cross-functional relationships

  • Communicating with senior leaders

For leaders who want to become more confidant, credible, and influential through:

  • Effective communication with internal and external audiences

  • Impact at the executive and board level

  • Stronger executive presence

  • Advancing thought leadership in conferences and media interviews

Nothing will change your career and your life faster than mastering the ability to communicate.


The ability to express your ideas with precision and confidence, influence an audience, and move people emotionally begins with the presenter—not the PowerPoint deck. I help clients create, construct, and deliver high-impact presentations. From content development to delivery style, clients receive expert advice, direct feedback, and support in all aspects of presenting.

  • Conference presentations and keynotes

  • Board meetings

  • Sales/business development presentations

  • All company meetings

  • TED / TEDx

Whether you're preparing for a presentation to an audience of thousands or an intimate 1:1 press interview, Susannah will raise the bar of your communication.
