Suzanne welcomes you,
suzanne-park“as a seasoned speaking coach it is so rewarding to quickly engage with clients, identify their barriers and generate strategies that boost their confidence and liberate their talents in service to achieving their goals. And this is often much easier and faster than clients expect. It’s as if a heavy old coat has been weighing them down and they’ve discovered how to cast it off and enjoy a new more effortless way of being. This liberates their talents as they apply elegantly simple yet precise tools and strategies that generate the results they’re after.”

I am passionate about guiding my clients’ transformation from…

  • being nervous and distracted
  • overwhelmed with data, complexity and indecision
  • forever questioning and editing their messages
  • struggling with vocal flaws, harmful habits, politics, power and interpersonal issues

Towards…

  • efficiently crafting insightful messages and recommendations on complex issues
  • leveraging the power and magic of their voice and presence as they become
  • an inspiring speaker who gets results and instills confidence while raising their profile ultimately bringing their best to the world by Communicating their Brilliance, where and when it matters most to them.

In addition to designing and delivering training programs on leadership, communications & teamwork to individuals, organizations & professional bodies Suzanne also provides coaching on these topics to leaders & senior level executives. Above all, in her work, Suzanne values the opportunity to build individual and organizational capacity via the Present with Presence suite of programs, products & services.
