Motivational Speaking

“Success is a journey not a destination”

Suzzanne is truly a testimony to this sentiment as she inspires and engages others with her positive, fun loving personality. Drawing strength from a solid background of over 25 years’ experience in key business management roles and business mentoring, she now coaches others to realise their dreams and live to the fullest of their own potential.

Author of ‘What’s Your Plan?’, Suzzanne has faced and overcome adversity and knows what it takes to surmount challenges and achieve extraordinary results.

Why Suzzanne?

Business aside, Suzzanne’s personal story is inspirational. She rescued her husband from a burning house fire and watched him die in ICU. He was revived, they had a family and some years later, as a mum of young kids, a medical diagnosis gave her five years to live. Since then she’s travelled the world and home schooled her children, lost everything financially, built it up again, and competed for Australia in sporting events. As stated by Tracey Vo from ABC Radio ‘her attitude should be bottled!’.
