GOLD STEVIE AWARD FOR FEMALE ENTREPENEUR OF THE YEAR 2020
It is with great pride that I share the news of winning a Gold Stevie Award for Female Entrepreneur of the Year 2020 for my High Impact Leadership Coaching. The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s premier business awards for women entrepreneurs, executives, employees, and the organisations they run. The mission of the Stevie Awards is to recognize and generate public awareness of excellence in the workplace.
“Sue is obviously a dedicated and experienced coach helping individuals to make significant and lasting change particularly in the area of corporate leadership – where constant change and challenges are inevitable.” Judge, Stevie Awards
To gain recognition from such a prestigious organisation for the coaching services I provide, was a huge achievement.
Being considered the number one leadership coach for individuals across the financial services sector in Europe, as well as quadrupling my business turnover and becoming a best-selling author, have been great accomplishments and have helped to strengthen my coaching business, and to further improve my coaching programme.
“Sue is obviously passionate about her work. Her clients have provided strong testimonials on their success as a direct result of her coaching. Sue has built a reputation that resulted in growth into larger organizations for executive coaching.”
As a high impact life and leadership coach, raised in the army and with over 13 years’ experience working for the BBC as a journalist, I know what leaders suffer with as they try to develop visionary leadership skills. Managing important business decisions, moving away from operational delivery and focusing on the wider business direction are crippling challenges that senior leaders face, and ones that I have proven results in. Building an effective coaching relationship between coach and client is something that was recognised in my award nomination.
GOLD 2020 STEVIE WINNER
FOR WOMEN IN BUSINESS
“Sue is an outstanding coach, she really listens very carefully and understands immediately what you need to do, then she gets straight to the point with practical tools and solutions.”
Rodolphe Plouvier, Senior Management at Generali, France
As part of my successful nomination for the Stevie Gold Award, my coaching work with Rodolphe Plouvier at Generali, France was highlighted.
In 2019 I was approached by the leading European insurance provider, Generali, to support newly promoted executives to grow into their roles as leaders. Over the following year, I worked with a range of executives and leaders to help them make exceptional transformations across their own roles and lives. I created an outstanding impact on the businesses they work for and in turn, helped them drive their business growth.
Rodolphe had been working in business operations and with such incredible technical expertise, he had recently been promoted to the leadership committee. However, he did not embrace the change as he did not feel prepared for it. Rodolphe couldn’t deliver visionary leadership to the wider business when he felt stressed from working long, tiring hours, challenged by difficult communications with his team. He felt disengaged through a lack of work-life balance. He was at a critical point in his career and was at risk of failing in his new role if something wasn’t done to help him, fast.
My coaching engagement started by discovering Rodolphe’s specific limiting beliefs, understanding his fears, and most importantly, helping him understand his own barriers to change and how he could resolve them for the greater good of his own health and welfare, as well as for the benefit of the Generali France team and the business.
Working with Rodolphe on all of these areas resulted in an outstanding visionary senior leader who now works fewer hours than ever, yet makes a higher impact – and helps his team and the whole business to do the same.
The impact of my coaching work with Rodolphe has been truly life-changing for him, just as it has for the many individuals I have supported in leadership roles across the UK and Europe

My book, Change Your Life In Five, won me a place as a Finalist in The Business Book Awards 2021, Personal and Wellbeing category. It was recognised as offering insight and improvement in physical and mental health, and personal skills development.
Sue has worked with a range of industry leaders, facilitating exceptional turnarounds across roles and lives, enabling individuals to create outstanding and lasting impact on the businesses they work for, which in turn drives business growth and organisational agility.

Timely intervention for a world grappling with the effect of COVID-19. In the words of Amazon reader, Elaine:
