“Suzanne’s negotiation workshop for a group of 30 senior women leaders in the capital markets was not only energetic and engaging, but also provided practical tips. The opportunity to participate and be coached on a simulation allowed us to put our learning to work. Our participants loved it, noting that they felt more confident and ‘buoyed’ after the session!”
