Sales Director

SME Software Company

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.
