Susie has an incredible ability to help you work out and understand what it is that makes you tick. She then works with you to put that at the heart of your career journey. She helps you to analyse and identify your particular set of skills to explore how you can apply them. You can then trace your next steps and plot out your short and long term plans.
Meanwhile her extensive network and knowledge means that she can also help you find ways of gaining the extra bits of experience that will enhance your CV and help you to reach for and achieve your goals. For me, what really inspired me was Susie's description of a portfolio career and her ability to articulate what it is that makes the way I work special. She made me realise how I could put together everything I loved so that my work became a pleasure and I could kiss goodbye to that Monday morning feeling!
I met Susie when I was an Analyst at Deloitte (2007) during a Teach First event. While I was part of the host team, I felt inspired by Susie’s open approach and ability to contextualise her coaching techniques to the participants’ needs. I managed to arrange a meeting with her soon after and 4 years on, we have built a great working relationship where Susie has become both a mentor and trusted adviser.
Over time, she has helped me: Get the most of my time at Deloitte by helping me understand how to leverage internal relationships Truly understand my strengths and areas of development through bringing to life my Myers Briggs results and referring back to them again and again Shaped my career and thinking by making valuable introductions to individuals in her diverse network Build my brand by constantly re-visiting who I am, what I am good at and how I should market myself.
Once again in my life I am making choices on my next steps and once again, Susie and I are working together to explore what lies ahead.
Susie Lawrence is an inspiration. For those women who, like me, have the joy of children in their lives but also search for fulfilment to feed another part of themselves then I recommend that you call Susie. She has created her own business, having also had a family to bring up which, in itself, makes her a helpful mentor. She is empathetic, intelligent, and a lateral thinker.
At a stage in my life when my university felt a lifetime ago and my confidence was lacking she helped me look at myself again, refind my strengths, my self-belief and gave me a deeper understanding of my character, how I like to use my brain, my creativity and what I find most rewarding and fulfilling. Each coaching session explores a different question, gradually building step by step towards a new vision and how that can be achieved. Susie is highly sensitive, empowering and fun. I would definitely like my children to see her in a few years time when they are deciding on their careers. I cannot recommend her more highly.
