“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.
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!’.
Both Suzzanne’s professional and personal life experiences allow her to motivate and inspire people as a key note speaker. She has spoken for a huge array of organisations including Bankwest, Edith Cowan University, Joondalup Learning Precinct, Women of the West plus many more not-for-profit organisations and companies covering various topics, ranging from ‘Empowering Women in Business’ to ‘Planning for Success’. See below for a list of some of Suzzanne’s motivational and keynote speaking experience.
Bringing the colour back into the minds of employees and organisations
Traditional employee & leadership training is now proven to be OLD and SLOW (2016 Deloitte). There is now a much quicker and more powerful way to create organisational change. It’s called a ‘Group Activation System’. It is a weekly, facilitated group session that is customised for any business.
This weekly session refreshes: 1) Systems, 2) Behaviours, and 3) Culture. We do this by offering 12 ‘Engagement Keys’ that are customised for the business within that session.
What is an ‘Engagement Key’? It’s an exercise to engage teams in a specific way. After the 12 session program we are doubling employee engagement levels, unearthing more leaders, improving productivity and profits, by neurologically activating and motivating the minds of all employees.
Our neurologically designed programs will…
Improve staff retention, productivity and engagement levels
Create a fun and connected working environment
Increase leader and staff relationships
Empower all generations to work together as one dynamic united team
Remove silo mentality and creates a dynamic flow of communication
Unearth new innovation, best practises and creativity among your team
Drive individual and team accountability in all workplace deliverables
Expand inter and intra team communication and collaboration
Identify and develop current and emerging leadership talent
Our Entrepreneurs Unlimited Program (EUP) is a 12-month program for business owners and entrepreneurs who desire more skills, tools, inspiration and guidance to achieve their goals. The program is designed for people who are committed to investing time and energy into their education, professional development & success of their business. For more info, see below or visit here
Our next intake commences 21 January 2020.
You will spend 1 day per month proactively working ON your business, rather than just IN it. Imagine the potential for growth if you set-aside 12 days per year to strategically plan and make informed decisions rather than re-active ones.
This is your chance to work on all the areas of your business that you never have the time for, in an environment where there is coaching and mentoring support by award-winning business coach Suzzanne Laidlaw.
Imagine having a board of directors, a sounding board, and someone holding you accountable. Imagine if you could reach your potential faster and avoid the pitfalls that many business owners succumb to. This program will help you reach your goals and you will learn how to run your business, rather than your business running you.
Business Planning Workshop – You will be invited to my next 2-day Business Planning Workshop where you will build your own comprehensive business plan for success and identify areas of potential to fast-track your business growth. This will enable you to be clear on your starting point, and have measurable components to track throughout your entrepreneurial journey.
Leadership & Communication Program – Fine tune the art of becoming a highly regarded leader, and build a great culture to increase productivity through break-out groups focusing on direction setting, framework design, behavioural benchmarks, relationships, individual growth, reward, recognition and spiritual leadership.
Monthly Strategy Sessions (x 12) – The program will guide you through critical components of business mastery, assessing crucial success factors in your business through planning, leadership, financial management, marketing and sales, team, systems and more.
Online Resources& Templates– You will have access to resources in every area of business, including relevant templates to improve your business systems, plus your own individual online portal with an abundance of strategies to work on, in conjunction with our program, to build your business.
Financial Tracking (Monthly) – We will hold you accountable to reviewing and submitting your financials on a monthly basis, so any immediate areas of concern can be flagged and rectified.
Accountability – You will be assigned an accountability buddy within the group who you will speak to regularly between meetings, to propel your success and help each other stay on track, focused and be a sounding board.
DISC Profile – We will provide you with a comprehensive behaviour & motivator assessment that will allow you to identify your natural and adjusted style of working, with the key traits behind your decisions and what this means for your business.
Have you always dreamed of increasing your business intelligence through transformational entrepreneurial principles?
This program is not a seminar, there is no “drip” feeding or teaching from the front of the room, rather a facilitated discussion around growth and expansion of each Program Member’s business across the duration of the 12 month program.
Regardless of where you are on the entrepreneurial ladder this program can help your business with… Starting a Business – Business Loans or Grants – Business Insurance – Business Plans – Sales – Marketing – Team Building – Business Development Initiatives and Growth Opportunities, and expose you to the many entrepreneurial skills required to step your business up to the next level.
If you’re a business owner or an entrepreneur in the making committed to preparation, abundance, and giving 100%, then contact us now on 0414 943 823 for more information on how you can enrol for this powerful Entrepreneurs Unlimited Program.
“Failing to plan is planning to fail.”
The importance of drafting a business plan is vital. Many business owners are under the impression that their passion and confidence will be enough to create a successful business. Operating without a business plan proves to be more time-consuming as well as costly in the long run.
Our next Business Planning Workshop will run on Monday 25th & Tuesday 26th November, 2019 (9.00am to 4.30pm).

Have you got peace of mind about where your business is going?

During our 2-day business planning workshop, we support our clients to build their business plan from the ground up, encouraging them to assess their assumptions and proactively plan for success.

We guarantee to get results, and that you’ll be able to “Find Our Fee” in your business within 17-weeks of coaching… or your coaching is FREE.
Imagine having someone oversee every step of your your vital business operations and decisions. By having a coach, you’ll have your own Business Management Consultant to hold you accountable and keep you on track.
For one client this might mean giving them a hug, and for another, it may mean pushing them just that little bit further than they thought possible. Suzzanne provides every single business coaching client with a fair and honest perspective on their situation.
This is the real value behind a business coach, especially someone like Suzzanne Laidlaw with her wealth of mentoring experience. What she looks for in a client, is a business owner who will follow through and constantly be above the line. One on One business coaching is best suited to businesses that have been established for at least two years, and are turning over at least $450,000 annually. However we are happy to discuss your individual situation and what sort of return on investment you can expect to get from coaching.
