Her programs are tailored specifically  to the audience and they are filled with practical, tactical tools that can be used on the spot to increase a person’s ability to build trust and accelerate the development of mutually beneficial relationships. And, she is a sheer joy to work with; a rare combination that keeps Susan at the top of my personal ‘go to’ list” – Jeff Munks, Deputy Executive Learning Officer and Senior Program Manager
