I was fortunate to hear Susan give a motivational speech at a Clinic in the Bahamas. If you want to get a group motivated, you owe it to yourself to hear her speak. If she doesn’t motivate your group, heart transplants are in order for the whole group!

Thank you for your inspirational presentation at our basketball coaching clinic. Not only were you extremely instructional in your presentation as it applies to X’s and O’s, but your message was very powerful as it applies to motivating young athletes to perform at the highest level.Your theory that there is a human being behind every X and O and what separates greatness in coaching (leadership) is your ability to inspire and motivate couldn’t have been delivered any better.
