My life is better for having met Susan.

Susan brings a powerful message alive with her ability to deliver a story that impacts every audience member. Susan had the audience laughing and crying and most of all making transformations.

As a producer who hears many speakers each year, I have to say I haven't seen anyone who is a captivating as Susan.

Terri Levine

Susan created an experience that allowed the audience to connect with her, then with themselves and then with one another.

In only an hour.

I hired Susan to speak at two events I organized for women.

Afterward, they wanted more Susan and more opportunities for deep conversation and community.

Whether in a group or one-on-one, Susan is such a positive force, fostering belief in the possibility of self-growth and the power of closing doors and opening windows.

I have been personally inspired and motivated by her. She will have you embracing the wonder of an evolving world.

Our speaker Susan Sandler was so fabulous, helping us learn to face our fears and live like Miriam.

How do you know it was a great connect? When the meeting ends and not a single person rises from their chairs for 20 minutes because the conversations are flowing, the relationships are building and the energy is intoxicating. And every guest attendee becomes a member.

Jessica Barnak
Managing Director, Polka Dot Powerhouse

I was touched, moved and inspired by last night's gathering.

Your mom's story and the way you shared it really opened my heart to what's possible. You created an environment in which people felt comfortable sharing their truths and that enabled me to share my own. Even though most of us were strangers, we formed a strong bond. I now know what has been holding me back and what I need to do to move forward. I don't want our new community to end! I'm ready to receive support and to support others.

Pamela Elaine Nichols

Susan Sandler’s speech is nothing short of amazing: her performance is inspirational, powerful and courageous.

Her voice is warm and engaging as she pulls back the curtain to reveal a story of perseverance and triumph in the face of deep-rooted challenges that many of us encounter but often try to ignore. In my heart, I’ve always known what I needed to do to become an even better leader in my organization and community. Now, after hearing Susan’s story, I have more than enough courage to tackle my challenges head on.

Rick Petry

I was riveted.

Susan’s voice is just incredible...the deep resonances, the eerie bits, the joy, the authenticity. I keep hearing her voice in my mind a day later. And it feels like a blessing and an inspiration. Thank you, Susan, for punching your fear in the face for all of us.

So very inspirational!

I was so enthralled with the story, and was captivated with the passion in which she told it! I just listened to it again and got goosebumps! I just turned 50 this year, so it really hit home with me on many levels!!!

I'm sharing her talk with all my friends!!!

The best word I can use to describe Susan’s impact is “elevate.” Using her intuition, perceptiveness, and deep knowledge of the human spirit, Susan helps clients and audiences elevate.

A conversation with Susan  leaves you with more knowledge about yourself, with more confidence about your pursuit, and with more energy to push through. You will feel elevated and ready to take your life to the next level.

Susan is able to show empathy, warmth and caring in a rather short period of time.

She is able to build that type of rapport quickly and validate feelings while at the same time asking just the right questions to nudge in the right direction. Perfect balance of understanding and pushing for growth.

Jennifer Harkins

Work with Susan Sandler and you'll see yourself in a whole new way.

Michael Port
Co-Founder, Heroic Public Speaking Worldwide

Susan’s ability to get right down into the emotional aspects of a conversation is truly remarkable and the reason why people inherently trust her.

Not only because she says the right words and listens well, but they can feel and see how much she cares for them at that moment. For instance, the very first time we met I knew I could trust her and opened up a conversation that I don’t ever really talk about.

John Harrison
CEO, Cybexa

There is no pretense. 

My favorite quote is from the Little Prince: 'It is only with the heart that one sees rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.'

That is what is special about Susan. She is genuine, open, positive and honest. Listening is a lost art.

Jan Glick
CEO, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh

Susan Sandler is the real deal and every one who has the chance to work with her should jump in.

Susan has that uncanny ability to help you dig deep, find the thing - skill, message, slight edge -  and then begin using that to get where you want.

Mike Ganino
Speaker & Cultural Brand Architect

Sue truly impacted my development as a manager and peer.

As I began serving in a new managerial role, I had the privilege of being coached by Sue.

Her thoughtful questions, patient responses, and appropriate challenges pushed me to move beyond what I thought I could do with new confidence and a sense of clarity.

Cerigyn Parsons
CM Consulting Group

Sue has a genuine curiosity which lends to her ability to quickly become a trusted advisor and effective coach.

I have observed Sue facilitating groups during change management discussions and worked with her one on one in my own professional development. She is thoughtful and strategic.

Hilary Fenders
Implementation Consultant, Tyler Technologies

Sue is an amazing listener and coach.

Her intellect, patience and insight, is a gift that she passionately shares with others.

Those who have worked with Sue often describe the experience as 'transformational and life-changing'.

Steve Horner
Executive Coach

Working with Susan Sandler has been life changing. Not kidding.

I came to her with the desire to give a TED talk and within a year, I was on the TEDx stage, giving my talk to a sellout crowd and a standing ovation. Susan helped me identify my message, shape my talk, and get to the experience through her wisdom and connections.

Now that my talk is over, the work continues--and she's helping me to build the tools I need to be a successful author and speaker, generously providing access to the knowledge and people she knows - of which there are MANY - to support my success.

Susan listens like you're the only person in the crowd and delivers feedback in a way that is powerful. Your win is her win and you'll feel that.

A warrior in her own right, trail blazer, big sister, and extraordinary woman, she's strong, smart, authentic, honest, compassionate, and kind, and there for you every step of the way.

If you take her advice and work hard, you'll get wherever you want to go. Work with her! Now! Do it!
