Keynote Speaker Topics

Emotional Agility is a tool for everyone – now more than ever. Susan inspires audiences to think, feel, and act differently with deeply impactful and positive outcomes for themselves, their colleagues, and their organizations.

Emotionally agile people are dynamic. They demonstrate flexibility in dealing with a fast-changing, complex world. They face stress and setbacks with curiosity, compassion and courage, and make choices that are values-connected and serve who they most want to be in life and work.

With powerful and engaging stories, humor, and insight, Susan creates a deep and authentic connection—each person in the audience feels understood, inspired, and able to drive real, pragmatic change.

“You were exceptional. Your ability to hold space for so many hundreds of people over a broadcast is beyond the
typical reach of humans I’ve met. It was awe-inspiring to watch and to feel that throughout the experience.“
