For The Love Of Networking

Suzy first delivered this story in June 2019 at an industry event for women in music.

Originally slated to be a 5 minute opener her audience begged for more. The stories and insights shared that night inspired guests to continue networking to the wee hours of the morning.

Suzy now delivers this surprising story of love, first impressions, connection and powerful apologies as a 30 minute keynote.

Not so much about how to network, this inspires audiences to know why they want to network.

Entertaining, energetic and filled with wit, this is the perfect starter session for your conference.

F*** Potential - The unremarkable and common story of ‘try harder’

Suzy was led to believe she should just ‘try harder “ to reach her potential.

Failing school she went about ‘trying hard’ in the outside world - university, various vocations, none of which seemed to uncover her potential.

At 23 she married a lovely human being, together they built businesses, produced kids, travelled and lived overseas. By all accounts they were successful but Suzys’ potential continued to elude her.

Either she didn’t have any or was totally unqualified to access it.

Untapped potential is so common we rarely stop to consider the true impact - it’s the cause of mental un-wellness and has a huge financial pressure on our economy.

Revealing, self-deprecating and full of wisdom, this keynote delivers a new methodology for releasing time, energy and joy in the workplace. Real tools for the real world.
