For 15 years Susanne has worked internationally with senior level leaders.


I am a confidant and coach to C-Suite and executive level leaders.

My clients hold significant titles, and thus, have few unbiased people with whom they can speak freely. I provide a confidential, safe place to affirm the realities of their inner world: personal struggles, real frustrations, complex business challenges, people issues, and the daunting opportunities of our global, networked marketplace. Together, we discuss how they can more effectively lead themselves and others well, taking into account the complexity, visibility, and political landscapes they must navigate.

My talent is to see the human being behind a powerful title and provide useful feedback, perspective, and insight that results in leaders reaching their next level of personal, professional and spiritual mastery.

“He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.”
― Lao Tzu

I support those working with sustainable, compassionate, and ethical offerings. 604.864.5408 to discuss your current challenges and opportunities to see if we are a good fit.

Today’s leaders will not merely lead our organizations—they will shape our world.

Trying Vegan

Visionary leaders promote the benefits of veganism. Why? It’s one of the best ways to address our most serious global challenges—from heart disease and diabetes to world hunger and climate change.

Most recently Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google’s parent company Alphabet, announced that the number one “game-changing” trend of the future is the consumption of plant-based proteins instead of meat.

If you are a vegan executive or a senior leader in a vegan business and interested in leadership development and coaching, please contact me at 604.864.5408.

I am also available as a writer, speaker, or advocate for your vegan event or project.

“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.”
- Archimedes

I’ve been a barber, an international advertising executive, a published author, and a workshop facilitator, but combining my leadership coaching expertise with my passion for veganism is what excites me most these days.

My interest in the psychology of human motivation, the creation of peak performance, the manifestation of real success, and the study and application of effective leadership led me to becoming an executive leadership coach. As for veganism, it is, without a doubt, a key lever to address many of the critical challenges we face as a global community.
