Suzy is simply an amazing MC. She charms and controls the audience in equal amounts, aligning people's attention and sharing vital information. She is a great stage manager, time keeper and makes all our speakers feel comfortable and welcome.  Vivacious, knowledgeable, funny and very entertaining, I would recommend Suzy for any event that needs a brilliant emcee.

Suzy brings to emceeing and facilitation what she brings to all of her personal communications:  infectious uplifting energy, warmth, inclusiveness and a motivating challenge to all to think big and be authentically present. She is the human glue that binds the audience to a common purpose.  Enjoyed working with Suzy across multiple national roadshows!

Suzy was recently a speaker at our Financial Services Lunch. Her presentation was inspirational, moving and relevant. I left feeling enriched and with plenty to think about how I run my life, my career, my relationships. Much of what she said resonated deeply. More than that though, she engaged the entire group, she was animated, warm, and shared personal stories. I highly recommend Suzy as a speaker.

MC - The Dangerous Dance Gala Dinner
Mo Fox, Creative Strategist

Professional, elegant, entertaining... I've watched Suzy present for years, and she is the consummate MC. Whether directing proceedings at her own sessions or getting audiences excited at events such as recent Dangerous Dance charity fundraiser, she is ever unflappable and engaging. A real pro.

I have known Suzy for over six years and each year Fearless gets better.  She Business started and continues with the overarching purpose to enable women to be extraordinary. And extraordinary is exactly what Suzy Jacobs is!
 

Fi Bendall
CEO, Bendalls

Suzy Jacobs is a professional, engaging and powerful MC and speaker. Suzy holds guides, captivates and entertains her audience. She has an uncanny ability to disarm and bring a humility to her style that usually has a dose of humour or a reflection that we can all relate to. Her own keynotes and speeches bring the audience alive with her own experience and knowledge.

Basic Bananas Marketing Summit (2014)

Suzy is one of the most inspiring speakers I ever met. Incredible harmony of energy, expertise and inspiration!

Author, Rethink Your Career

I’ve seen Suzy in action as an emcee at Fearless and other major Sydney events. She is high energy, likeable and very quick to read the room. She knows how to move events along, do the necessary linking of speakers then step back. I love her work (and have just hired her to emcee an event myself). I have no hesitation in recommending her.

“Wow!  What a woman!  Courage, confidence and knowledge all wrapped up in a glamorous ball of energy.”

SNAPSHOT OF FACILITATION

Suzy has a focused, yet holistic perspective.  She is a human dynamo, combining fun and energy with a commercial, business mind and a crisp focus on results.  She knows what to say, the best questions to ask, and does this with a strong dose of care and humility.  Bottom line – she encourages people to expect more from themselves, she strives to make a significant difference, and all her behaviour supports these aims.  We ALWAYS get enthusiastic, positive feedback on her sessions and would give an unqualified ‘DEFINITELY’ to anyone asking whether they should work with Suzy.  We consider ourselves and our business extremely lucky to have her as part of our extended team.

WHEN NOT ON STAGE …

Suzy Jacobs leads her consultancy firm, providing clients with the one thing, on which all else is built – an unshakeable truth.

Her clients are predominantly business owners who’ve brought in external consultants, hired business coaches and mentors and are tired of the superficial fix that produces temporary results.  They’re searching for knowledge of a different kind.

They want to:

  • Grow a mind-blowing business that answers all the juicy parts of life and makes plenty of money and/or
  • Build the kind of wealth that makes them smile and goes way beyond 'comfortable and/or
  • Rock’ the world stage, delivering thought-provoking content and feel frikking fabulous while you're doing it.
