She made a decision, don’t get angry, or you won’t survive. That defined Suzy’s next 25 years. Standing by mom’s casket on her 28th birthday, Mom’s best friend said, you know Mom and I were close, but she never shared her pain. Suzy made a decision that defined her life’s work. How do you have important conversations? She learned the value to be vulnerable, share your feelings and ask for what you’d like. Nurture you and your relationships, listen, speak your truth without drama or you may die at 49 with a broken heart. On Suzy’s 36th birthday Dad died. Grieving this loss was softer. There were no unspoken words. They shared all the important conversations leaving nothing unsaid. At the end of every phone call or visit they said, I love you. Suzy appreciated those fearless conversations. How did she learn to have the most important conversation? Suzy began her career at Sheraton Hotels in England. Managing an international team, negotiating contracts with companies as far as Malaysia, Iran and the States, she won awards for achieving exceptional results in a down market. Later in the U.S. she became the first saleswoman in her industry sector. Continuing to build relationships with customers, vendors and plant managers across the country, hunting and golf were not in her business plan. Breaking more paradigms she secured the largest market share in the industry within her first year. That spurred Suzy to open her own consulting firm in 1992. Clients span North America including Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, CEO roundtables and individuals. PBS called her the Communication Expert, where she had her call-in television program for two years. Her first book, The Most Important Conversation is the One You’re Not Having released 2001. The expanded third edition with new tools and updated research releases early 2013. CEO of Communicating Works! Suzy continues coaching and writing. Suzy was invited to audition for a new documentary @ http:// rippleofchange.com that launches January 1, 2013. Now she lives in the beautiful low hill country in Texas with her beloved hubby, Jim Bryant. Proud of Sam who serves in the U.S. Marines, he gifted mom a precious daughter when he married Aisha. Jim although retired is an active court appointed child advocate for CASA making a difference in the lives of two boys who have experienced far, far too much already. Their extended family includes Jim's three children & nine grandchildren. The newest member is a working feral cat that keeps the mole population down, snakes away and enjoys lap time inside. How does life get any better than that? To learn more about Suzy, Communicating Works!
