Audience Appreciation

Our organization has a focus on both career and personal development for women in all accounting and related fields. Suzanna was able to address both those focus areas with her “First Impression Formula” presentation. Her presentation was professional, entertaining, and informative. Her deliverables hit the mark on how we as women professionals can improve our communications in all aspects of life. I, personally, see great value in her formula and will apply it in all my future interactions. I look forward to hearing more of her presentations and would definitely recommend her to other professional organizations seeking development opportunities.

–Diane Reed, AFWA Board member.

Regardless of age, gender or demographic, Suzanna knows how to connect with each person in a room. Her ability to gauge the audience and adjust as needed, is reflected in the various environments I’ve been fortunate enough to engage with her. I would highly recommend Suzanna for future speaking engagements.
