Inspire Your Audience
To Next-level Leadership

Suzanne’s thirty years of experience in the psychology of human behavior and the neuroscience of leadership—as well as her science-based-systems approach to coaching and talent development—have made her a go-to speaker for Fortune 500 organizations, executive groups, start-ups, professional associations, nonprofits and colleges.

Capitalizing on her experience with high-performing leaders and their teams, Suzanne delights and challenges audiences as she reveals the critical keys to leadership: building trust, enhancing communication, and navigating conflict. As both keynote speaker and master facilitator, Suzanne sparks and emboldens leaders to create and foster environments where all team members are inspired, encouraged, and provided the freedom and skills to operate at full potential toward a common goal.


From Employee Compliance To Commitment:
Why Trust Is The Game Changer

People don’t quit their jobs; they quit their bosses.

For most leaders, a top priority is delivering results—meeting their own targets and getting their people to meet theirs. And while the instinct is to set aggressive benchmarks and train direct reports on how to achieve them, too many leaders default to putting process over people. As a result, employees feel unappreciated, devalued, frustrated. And when they don’t move up (and sometimes even when they do) they often move out.

Fusing her deep knowledge of human behavior with her unparalleled ability to guide leaders to adopt a “coach-approach” with their people, Suzanne will show attendees that their key to sustainable success is standing right in front of them. It’s their people.

Suzanne Ricard-Greenway's warmth, grace and deep expertise at the intersections of leadership development, building trust and emotional intelligence made her a hit with my audience. It's rare to find a leadership speaker who can artfully dance between telling relevant stories and making bold recommendations, but this is Suzanne's genius. She inspired my audience to see their leadership strengths as well as their areas for growth with truth and self-compassion, and I recommend her highly.

Suzanne spoke to a number of CEO forums with Mackay CEO forums and provided strategic and practical insights on how to improve team dynamics. She gave a fresh twist to the topic by combining her expertise in personality theory, brain science, and human performance. From the moment she said her opening lines she engaged participants, and she adapted her session to meet participant’s real-world business challenges.

Suzanne beautifully integrates power, wisdom, practicality and kindness into her talk. I had numerous insights as I listened to her nuanced grasp of how leaders think and what their teams need. Suzanne is a gifted speaker and her unique perspective on leadership will surely transform the landscape within many organizations.

Suzanne's speech about leadership was incredible! Her insights were spot on as she perfectly described many leaders I have worked for who tend to jump in and solve problems, give advice and focus on control. The beauty of her speech is that we could all relate in some way to the carefully crafted and compelling picture she painted of management and culture in the workplace. The best part was her four step, easy to implement solutions. Members of my team were eager and willing to implement her sound advice and coaching. As a speaker, Suzanne is able to command a large room or an intimate gathering with her professional, poised, knowledgeable approach. She is a role model for leadership and we look forward to having her at future events.
