Talking Points

Speakers love and trust her, audiences can't wait to see her again, and the beauty of it all is that her energy helps others have the deepest experience in an event, that changes them.

She creates a container that holds the audience to be alert, alive and enquire which invites them to suspend their judgement and be active in their experience - together.

Looking Sideways

Looking sideways, is filled with a positive narrative about best placing our responsibility where we have most impact in times of relentless deficit world messages.

Often longing for governments, society, industry or organisations to deliver for us, we miss the everyday chances to look sideways at our peer group of which, when we stand together can bolster and support in ways that are often far more powerfully effective because they are collective. Weaving an energetic yet meaningful storyline, Suzanne shares a hopeful message of possibility inspired by events from an orphanage in Kenya, and coupled with her background as a behaviouralist, she unpacks practical, real-life tools and wisdom shining a light on true internal liberation conveying often forgotten aspects of personal choice to the forefront of the way we operate in life.

Helping to proactively question what we need to let go of in order to feel useful and fulfilled in our inner worlds this talk also brings about how we show up for others without leaving ourself aside in the process. This uplifting experience raises the energy of the room to ensure a productive and meaningful conversation occurs far beyond your event, leaving the audience feeling a surge of “hopeful responsibility”.

A Flourishing Mind: Tap into Yours

Flourishing is a tad grittier than one might expect. It encompasses all the facets of life’s glory, the adverse and joyful (and everything in between).

You would have noticed by now; life isn’t all rosy. After a traumatic childhood, Suzanne Waldron has become fascinated with how humans work and how to make most of life in the ever-changing moments of dark and light. In her first published book A Flourishing Mind she takes the reader on a journey of harsh realities of humanity and why compassion could be the answer to many difficulties in life.

This funny, honest, revealing keynote unpacks the three things that she puts at the top of her behavioural work as most significant when wanting to flourish in work and life. With her masterful simplicity, storytelling and practical advice, Suzanne leads you to the path of flourishing within no time. The audience laughs through and loves every step of the way.
What an incredibly amazing experience to witness Suzanne’s recent keynote speech, at the BOMA Hawaii Leadership Symposium, “The Impact of Genuine”. An engaging interactive experience and reminded us to be genuine and true to ourselves. She had my team, during and after her session, buzzing with renewed excitement. Suzanne is an inspiring person in every way and I look forward to reading her book; “A Flourishing Mind”. ~ from my Hawaii team at Shidler. Thank You! Shidler Pacific Advisors

Suzanne gave an amazing keynote via video link at the launch of Soundfair’s HearMe Report. Using stories of lived experience and her deep insights into humans and their behaviour, Suzanne not only wove magic, she also galvanised change. People walked in wearing their professional ‘armour’ and the blinkers that come with one perspective, but walked out disarmed, seeing a broader vista and ready to champion change. We could not have had a more perfect and effective speaker - even beaming in remotely, her warmth, energy and compassion filled the room and people’s hearts.

Soundfair Melbourne

Thank you so much for your energy, wisdom, ability to engage and to thoughtfully challenge people on various things that were raised! You managed that beautifully - thank you. Many thanks for everything, yesterday, and in the lead up to it - for taking the time to get to know and understand your audience of DCJ Peer Support Officers.

Department of Communities & Justice

Suzanne brings a refreshing approach to panel moderation and interviewing that is both inviting and enjoyable. Her warmth keeps the speakers comfortable and eager to share their insights. Her curiosity makes the topic in the discussion a worthwhile experience for the audience. Suzanne is highly skilled at making the conversation more about the participants and less about herself. This makes for an enjoyable and enlightening experience for either virtual platform or in-person events.
