“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
We are now taking expressions of interest for our next intake commencing 14 July 2020.
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.
Designed for people who are committed to investing time and energy into their education, professional development & success of their business, 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 over 72 hours per year to strategically plan and make informed decisions, rather than “putting out fires” and falling victim to re-active decisions!
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 for more information.

My next 2-Day Business Planning Workshop will be held on Monday 30th & Tuesday 31st March 2020.
**Participation is available via Zoom (virtual) from the comfort and safety of your own home.
“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.
Get everything out of your head and onto paper to fit all the jigsaw pieces of your business together.
You now have the option of attending one or both days, to get your planning process started today. If time or money is prohibitive, you have the option of attending Day 1 only (to receive a compact & clear one-page plan) and will then have the option of attending Day 2 later on, if you wish, to advance on your learnings and strategic planning, and develop a full comprehensive business plan.
7 Benefits of a business plan:
A clear statement of your business mission and vision
Benchmarks to track your performance
A clear analysis of your industry, including opportunities and threats
A map of your major competitors and your strategies for facing them
An assessment of your company’s strengths and weaknesses
A roadmap and timetable for achieving your goals and objectives
An analysis of your revenues, costs, and projected profits
Have you got peace of mind about where your business is going?
If you don’t have a simple business plan, how do you know where you are going? During our 2-day business workshop we support our clients to build their financial information from the ground up.
If you want to get your team on the same page, and share a clear direction, or if you would like to show the bank or a financier where you are taking the business, this two day business planning workshop will allow you to write a comprehensive & professional business plan and walk away with a professionally printed plan with strategies to implement.
You and your team can then go back into your planning portal to update your plan at regular intervals to keep on track, encouraging you to regularly assess your assumptions and proactively plan for success.
As with any growth, the key is your willingness to invest. Some companies and banks charge upwards of $10,000 for a professional plan to be written for you, but we believe it’s so important for every business owner to have a Business Plan that we offer this 2-day course for a fraction of the cost.
$3,495 + GST for our 2-Day Workshop Only
$1,495 + GST for Day 1 only.
This investment is for one or two seats in our workshop as we understand that if you’re sharing vital decisions with a key person within your business, they should participate alongside you. If you require an additional (third or fourth) seat, the investment per additional attendee is $995 + GST for our 2-day workshop or $495 + GST for 1-day only.
How many times have you delayed getting started on something then later said, “I wish I had started sooner!” ?
We understand it takes courage to try something new, and commit to making long-term changes… We’re here to help you take that first step.
If you’ve ever wondered how much more you could achieve with just a little help and guidance, we can help you to discover the gaps in your business and map out a strategic plan for you to reach the next level.
