  • How Susan’s journey began, and led her to help others to be well-spoken

  • What she does to prepare her clients for the spotlight to create real results in their businesses

  • How to step into positive vulnerability, and understand “mistakes” as a fresh and new insight into your humanity

  • Susan’s inspiring take on the audience as a “community on your side”

  • Why she says that you shouldn’t memorize your content, and how to tell the same story with a different point and a different epiphany

  • How neuroscience, mindfulness, and relaxation come into play in Susan’s media training, and what it does for the confidence, competence, and visibility
