Business Alpinism

Suzy is a captivating, witty, glamorous speaker who leaves people feeling inspired, entertained and challenged to do more themselves.

During her presentations she draws parallels between her own breathtaking experiences climbing and skiing the World's highest mountains, and people's personal peaks, introducing her concept of business alpinism.

Every presentation is customised according to the goals of the organisation and can include interactive aspects and one or both of her acclaimed short mountaineering films. Guests will be gripped by the incredible footage of dealing with desperate difficulty and disappointment, as well as determination and delight. Hilarious props and demonstrations of the more delicate challenges facing mountaineers are all incorporated.

As a Psychologist and Life Coach, Suzy is particularly adept at subtly weaving her coaching skills into her mountain and adventure tales. People love to hear how key business concepts such as goal setting, leadership and team dynamics contribute to success and survival on big mountains as well as in the boardroom. Combining individual aspiration with teamwork in a group of people with big backpacks and bigger egos is highlighted, as well as unfreezing fear and the framing of "failure".

Whether you want to foster teamwork, develop strong leaders, celebrate success or entertain clients, Suzy offers inspiration for business and for life in a presentation which is a combination of motivation, determination and humour.

Suzy can deliver her talk in English, French and Italian. She also speaks as a duo or trio with her fellow lipstickblondes Squash Falconer and Carole Madge. See their biographies at www.lipstickblondes.com. Please enquire if you are interested in having more than one speaker at your event.
