Kind words received on Linkedin in 2023 from a client I worked with in 2015:
"Thanks Suzie! Although a while ago now, your words of support come back to me so often: I wouldn’t be here making these choices if it wasn’t for you. Thank you again!"
Being honest working with Suzie was an experience that is hard to describe. I had been thinking of getting a coach for a long time but was unsure if it would help me. Working with her exceeded my expectations by far.
She was able in short amount of time not only to give me tips and tricks but rather to help me understand the deeper meaning of why I did certain things (good and bad), conceptual models behind them and methodology to deal with those.
The cooperation helped me orient and organize my thoughts at a time where my startup and family were at a critical point, and I still use the methodology (almost) every day.
Karl, Startup Founder
Working with Suzie has helped me tremendously. Not only did my career in itself benefit from our collaboration, Suzie also supported me in discovering what was really important to me as a human being with regards to work in general.
Suzie's process is both gentle and firm at the same time and I tremendously appreciate her clarity and devotion to the essential which actually makes the difference. A no fuss, straight to the point and therefore truly helpful approach to coaching. Thank you, Suzie.
Head of International Training & Coaching at IWC Schaffhausen
I worked with Suzie initially on work/life balance and she helped me enormously to find great strategies to navigate something that mattered a lot to me. Then it was more general business coaching that I found extremely valuable. She is warm, tough and passionate about her craft. I thoroughly recommend Suzie for executive coaching with impact.
Head of Communications - Siemens AG
Suzie provided me guidance and support to help me reflect on my actions in difficult work situations, and how best to manage these. Still today, I pause at times, recalling the discussions I had with Suzie.
Suzie is neutral, non-judgmental, emphatic, and focused to help overcome challenges. I am thankful to Suzie and will always remember the impact she had on my career.
Global Sr Category Lead, Novartis
I know Suzie now over 6 years and met her first while working as a GM for the Hyatt Regency Kathmandu, when Suzie arrived on a personal charity mission to Nepal. In this meeting I got to know an intelligent caring person, with a wide range of interests and above all a great way to communicate with all people from different backgrounds, gaining easily everyones attention and trust.
My next interaction with Suzie turned to be on the professional side, when I have opened and managed the Hyatt Regency in Pune, India. I asked Suzie to come and assist with the senior leadership of the hotel, guiding them through the many challenges and difficulties of opening an hotel and mainly assisting in dealing with the pressure and balancing their personal life and needs in such demanding time.
In a week long of sessions and meetings with the top management of the hotel, that included one on one meetings as well as group sessions, Suzie not only managed to give most of us some useful tools to go trough this challenging period, but assisted in promoting team work and spirit amongst the team, that was no doubt instrumental through the opening period, both for the benefits of each individual and the hotel as a whole.
Suzie’s professional skills together with her charming personality, make her a prefect coach to any individual or group that go through changes, challenges or any time of need for guidance and support.
Director of Strategic Development, Hind Group
I was looking for a professional coach and contacted Suzie based on her linked-in positive recommendations. Following a one hour free assessment , or get to know each other, Suzie proposed a two session coaching exercise working on Values. I accepted and went on working on Values which entailed in-depth reflections on one-self during sessions and home work in between sessions. The value exercise helped me rank order values in life on a high, medium and low basis and encouraged me to reflect on ways in which I may be able to achieve greater satisfaction of my values in both my working life and personal life. Reflecting back on the strategy chosen by Suzie, her engaging personality and incredible active-listening skills, I believe I made the right selection; Suzie was extremely effective in nailing down my personality traits, uncovering what provided me with positive vibes and what I should stay away from. In two working sessions, Suzie managed to help me clarify what I was striving for. These coaching sessions were very good investment of money and time and would recommend Suzie to any professional at her/his career crossroads. It does make the difference.
Executive, Medical Technologies
Suzie is a professional who naturally manages to make you feel at ease. She has is emphatic while simultaneously encouraging and challenging you to find your own answers. Sessions with Suzie are an eye opener. She guides you to places you were too scared to visit before and she is an excellent companion in the journey to self-rediscovery. With Suzie's help I have started remembering a few things about myself that I had almost forgotten. Her approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. I have only attended a few sessions with Suzie and I certainly intend to attend more in the near future.
At a certain point in my career, I needed a professional outside of my work sphere who could provide an objective view and advice in tackling career based challenges. I knew I needed a structured process to help guide me in making the next leadership steps and act as a valuable objective point of reference. Suzie is a powerhouse of experience, who, through a structured framework and sensible processes, enabled the acquisition of clarity and empowerment - making any next steps (personal and professional) effortless.

I can highly recommend coaching with Suzie
Supply chain and Engineering Leader at Unilever
Suzie has a natural gravitas, she is a person you can immediately trust, and be sure of. She is there when you need her, when you need someone to encourage you to make that journey of personal development, which is not easy. She listens, she challenges, and encourages you to get over those uncomfortable moments of failure. Suzie has a fantastic ability to get down to the essence of things very quickly, to be honest and to zoom in on the things that are painfully difficult, and just the ones you need to work on. Having her as a coach has really helped me to like myself again, to know that, no matter where you are and how much you have messed up, there is a lesson to be learned, and you can move on. If you are in that place, if you are ready to confront yourself, then I would not hesitate to recommend Suzie to be your coach.
St. Gallen MBA, HSG St. Gallen, Switzerland
After meeting Suzie at a networking event I immediately connected with her lively and positive outlook and signed up as a client. Over several years, Suzie has been there when I needed some advice to get on track - both personally and professionally. She provided clear and helpful insight to bring focus into my work and to realize my potential - outlining clear and manageable steps to growth and development. I particularly appreciate that Suzie tailors her approach to my particular needs, values and personal situation, providing the support, advice and clarity to move forward in a positive direction.

Suzie is a fantastic individual, warm, easy to get along with and specially easy to talk to. She had come on a project to Pune and did wonders with our team here. She is brilliant with her work as a Life Coach and i would recommend Suzie for anyone who would need to motivate their team members. I met Suzie as a professional however have found a Friend in return.
Human Resources Director, Park Hyatt, Abu Dhabi
Suzie was my coach over several months, helping me to professionally develop through identifying my objectives and practical ways to achieve them. She is very knowledgeable about the international business environment, easy to open up to and a delight to spend time with. I would definitely recommend her to others in Switzerland and abroad.
Laudes Foundation, Zug
Suzie is real professional with a very personable and disarming attitude. Working with her was a pleasure and an eye-opening experience. Not only does she have an incredible array of tools and knowledge to get you thinking about the ways in which you can improve upon certain areas in your life, she also does it in a very easy and open manner.
Suzie provided support and guidance to me with a particularly difficult work related situation. She gave me clarity and practical advice as to how to tackle the issue in a way that left me feeling empowered and confident. I highly appreciated her honest and straight forward approach. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone to coach and guide them in both life and career situations.
Over the years I have engaged a number of coaches to work with senior leaders in a number of businesses. Suzie is a rare find and I cannot recommend her enough. I would go as far as to say that her ability to connect and engage with her coachees is second to none. Her subtle, supportive and direct approach coupled with her high level of intuition enables her to help individuals to open up, get to the heart of issues and make changes in their lives. Suzie is not formulaic, which gives me added confidence that she knows what she is doing and is confident to adapt her style to her clients and their needs.
I had met Suzie a few years back in 2011. I walked in to the meeting with a blank slate and walked out gaining a life long friend. She has this innate ability to make the opposite person at ease and strike a chord immediately.
Working through my Values with Suzie has been an invaluable experience. She supported me in confirming what is important in my life not only professionally but also personally. She gave me the time to reflect on how I would know when true balance is present in my life - with my three chosen values. I carry these words with me ever day to remind me what I am happy to compromise on and what is important to focus on.
Suzie and I worked together over the course of just two brief sessions to map out and analyze a number of issues that were preventing me from reaching my full potential at work and at home. Through a very simple and logical process, Suzie coached me through the process of understanding my priorities and then the process of developing a plan to achieve my goals. It has made a significant difference to my work and also my personal contentment.
Founder, CEO of Equal Community Foundation
Spending just couple of Hours with Suzie helped me to look at daily work related situations in right perspective and handle daily work stress much better. Suzie helped me realize that the ‘SECRET’ to our happiness lies within us, and that is where we need to look for it.
I came to Suzie with the feeling that I am lost in my life. I needed someone who will open my eyes to see the problems and give me the bravery to change my life. And it was Suzie. She is very empathetic and capable of giving a person possibility to find the right direction. She gives questions and let's one to find the answers. I am on the way to change my life. It is a bit scary. But I am very happy I took this step. Thank you, Suzie!
While interacting with Suzie during her training sessions one realizes that to be good at one’s work one has to develop and inculcate the habit of being a good listener. After one finishes a session with Suzie does one realizes how good a listener she is and you were the one who has poured out whatever you had in your heart and are feeling light. Keep it up Suzie.
In the hustle and bustle of daily life I actually forgot the most important thing – “how to unwind”. Thanks to Suzie who I met at that point of my life, who came like an angel, to explain to me a few good things on this forgotten topic !
