What People Are Saying

“Suzanne’s ability to elegantly quantify such a tense and emotionally rooted thing as conflict; speaks volumes to her experience and skill in such matters. Conflict, no matter how subtle or extreme is an ever-present workplace phenomenon that can cause stress, sickness, and even disease if not faced and corrected in a mindful and respectful manner. Suzanne’s workshops give the essential strategies for just such a task! Highly recommend from a satisfied workshop attendee!”

Ron M.

“As her student in university, I found Suzanne to be very approachable, knowledgeable of the content we were learning, and skilled at using examples to get her points across. In addition, Suzanne would use a lot of visual aids (IE: documentaries, videos, articles, etc.) and hands-on exercises (IE: group work, roleplaying, etc.) to provide us with a very concrete understanding of the process involved in what we were learning about. I would highly recommend taking a course from Suzanne, whether you are an academic student or an independent learner looking to sharpen your skills/improve your resume. Her real-world knowledge and experience as a teacher will prove valuable to you in your occupational goals.”
