Client Reviews

Client feedback is always appreciated. Read on to see what people are saying about my different Career Services.

She uncovered ambitions long forgotten and tucked away

I was frustrated that the industry I’m in was not fulfilling and that the most senior influential individual in the business was not appreciative of my skills or contribution, which made me feel undervalued. Having reached a point of frustration in my current role, thoughts turned to the what, how, when of changing my career path.

My fear was that Suzanne would lack substance, be too fluffy or would push me too fast into making decisions. None of which was the case. Suzanne carefully guided me through a thorough evaluation of my strengths to root around in my career and personal goals, uncovering ambitions long forgotten and tucked away. The exercise was revealing and her considerate approach allowed me to honestly assess what made me tick.

The biggest ‘reveal’ and main reason that tipped me into calling upon her services in the first place was not going to go away but her advice and illuminating insight, gave me some tools to approach that problem with an improved confidence in my own ability and the foresight to confront matters head on.

There may well be a complete career change in years to come but like many people, the pitfalls (financial, starting at the bottom again, fear of failure) are currently larger than the issues I had been facing. There aren’t many who, after this process, would say that not changing career is a success, but I am far better qualified to take informed action with ease. Notwithstanding, the advice will still be useful when that time comes but it is also useful for today.

Finally, I’d like to say how much value I got. I’d recommend Suzanne to others facing a similar career roadblock. This was not fluffy, navel gazing personality based assassination – it’s been a valuable, professional and extremely useful journey with many a belly laugh along the way. Many thanks Suzanne.

Sales Director, SME Software Company

I feel inspired, motivated and most of all I have plan of action.

For the last 18 months, I’ve been working for an organisation and feeling very unhappy, unfulfilled, not feeling as though I fit or belong. I’ve not done much about it due to personal circumstances. I knew something had to change and had a rough idea in my mind what but had a complete lack of clarity if I was right or just going mad. I was unmotivated and miserable at times.

During our Career Clarity calls, I loved the feeling of being connected and fully engaged. I felt you understood me and my situation. After the two sessions with you, I feel that I am not going mad, I feel inspired, motivated and most of all I have plan of action.

I would say to others “Do it.”

GP, Technical Manager

I loved how thorough you were regarding interview questions and company research

I wanted to move on but ensure that I didn’t accept a position that wasn’t really what I was looking for, like I’d done in the past.

I enjoyed having someone (other than family) to bounce my thoughts off. I loved how thorough you were regarding interview questions and company research. You also kept reminding me of what I needed to have and needed to avoid in my next role relating to the initial questionnaire I completed.

My CV and LinkedIn profile are now fantastic. One of the hiring managers who interviewed me said it’s one of the best CVs they’d ever seen. On LinkedIn, the number of direct contacts I’ve received is incredible. Even now that I have indicated that I’m no longer looking for a position, I’m still getting enquiries.

While I was looking at salary and location, one of the most important factors was that you kept reminding of other facts I would have missed.

I had three job offers. Having you guide me through the whole process, with interview questions, company research and multiple discussions helped me make the right decision for my future. Applying and accepting an offer is not something we do often – but it’s critical that we make the right decision.

It’s always tough starting a new job, but I love my new job and feel energised. I highly recommend you.
