Billion Dollar Project: “Sue was retained to work with the executive management team of a large public works design and construction project valued at $1.4 billion. Her primary mission was to develop open and trusting relationships among the executive management team to enhance communication and teamwork in a political charged, complex, and high pressure working environment. She not only provided insightful and practical techniques for working in a difficult environment but also provided valuable individual attention which resulted in a better understanding of human interactions in professional and personal relationships. Sue’s knowledge of effective communication and complex relationships is key to motivating you to stretch yourself to reach greater potential. It is difficult to write a few words to describe the profound impact Sue had on the organization and the individuals involved. The best way I know to say it by highly recommending Sue as someone you should work with.” August 12, 2007 From: Stephen Playford Director and part of the Executive Management Team
