I am a professional speaker and frequently get asked to speak on Stress and Change.

These are my primary areas of expertise when supporting people in business.

Executive Stress Seminars: Taking the Stress out of Leadership!

This is my core area of expertise and the one I speak about most often. For shorter seminars this is called ‘Taking the Stress out of Life’ but for half day workshops on Executive Stress the full title is ‘Taking the Stress out of Leadership!’.

Extensive research confirms that significant stress affects your well-being and performance. It is proven that people are more productive if they feel in control of what they can influence and alter. It helps if they are managed by a collaborative style rather than an autocratic one. Dominant, authoritative people can be known for getting things done; but they also stamp their personality on an organisation and may inflict stress on their employees. Those with personality styles that are less driven than their own can frustrate them or seem tedious. Autocratic people can be demanding, less patient and intolerant. All of this adds up to a recipe for stress, both in the leader and in their employees.

Why Should You Attend a Seminar?

Sue is an eloquent, articulate presenter with wide experience of presenting to small and large groups. She combines a direct style with an engaging manner and professional delivery on this sensitive topic. This ensures that she not gets not only your attention, but also that you leave with your own personal blueprint for stress management based on your experience with  ‘Taking the Stress out of Leadership!’ New skills and strategies will be formed which can be taken back into the workplace and in turn will help your organisation’s bottom line.

Strategically Managing Change

Strategically Managing Change is an important subject at a time when organizations have to introduce new processes, and modify old processes, in order to remain competitive. The impact of frequent change, or infrequent but significant change, to people can often be de-motivating and negative. It doesn’t have to be though. This session is designed to help understand how and why people react to change. The more we understand people, the better we can implement change initiatives, maintain productivity and maximise the effectiveness of everyone involved.


1. To define ‘Change’ and its impact both in recent years within Industry and on people

2. To introduce  a personality characteristic that differentiates those people who are likely to cope well with change and those who cope less well

3. To suggest ways of encouraging both personality types to work well together

4. To make a number of recommendations which ensure change initiatives are as effective as possible.

Each delegate will receive a workbook to help them handle difficult periods of change

This is an interactive session using exercises and a personality questionnaire to illustrate the pertinent points, and includes time for group discussion.
