"Suzi's insight, methods of engagement and ability to bring out the best in everyone she coaches truly distinguishes her in the consultant world. She has been instrumental in promoting synergy within our legal teams and developing our legal personnel, some of whom have been risk adverse and very resistant to any proposed change. I would not hesitate, and would, indeed, encourage you, to contract Suzi for any proposed project."
