Suzanne is one of the best speakers I've ever heard. Her ability to draw in the audience while she both educates and entertains her listeners is outstanding. I've learned a great deal from her about how multigenerational issues impact a company's ability to succeed. I keep those issues in mind as I work with my clients to help them achieve their strategic goals.

Suzanne gave an outstanding presentation on managing Millennials and the challenges of managing five generations. Suzanne displays both wisdom and knowledge based on years of experience consulting on leadership training and workforce development. I highly recommend Suzanne for both consulting and speaking engagements.

Thank you for an inspired and entertaining session. I've been to many sessions on communication and generational differences, but yours was by far the best. Your lecture was engaging, balanced, visually appealing, and highly informative—I walked away brimming with possibility and enlightenment!
