"Well, you were definitely a good luck charm! I just confirmed a 10 week project with Amazon Web Services to support their Global Training team. I actually used a lot of what we discussed in my interview which has helped me to also grow my content for LinkedIn (that I can't wait to share). Thank you for reminding me how to write and communicate (giving me the boost I needed). Thank you for supporting me"

"Great stuff and it is changing behavior. Thanks Sue.”

Everyone raved about your Dynamic Business Writing class. It’s no surprise. They raved the last time you were here too. You always do a fantastic job! We’ve been re-writing email templates and sharing “best practices” as a result of your teaching. Thank you for making the class both fun and educational. We are so grateful to have such an amazing person to provide this very worthwhile training to our team.
