Your Contribution Counts: 

Appreciation Practices, where Everyone Profits



…each member of your multi-generational team felt valued, and that their contribution significantly impacted the success of the organization?


What type of culture would it create? What ripple effect would it initiate?


Sponsors, board members, employees, and colleagues want to affect an organization's success. As a leader, you need to let a stakeholder know their contribution counts.


There are many ways to demonstrate appreciation. As a leader, knowing what a person values will guide you on how to appreciate them appropriately. People often join or collaborate with an organization for the money or the profile; they stay for how they are valued.
Turning individual recognition into a culture of appreciation can increase your team's engagement and performance while having them experiencing a heightened sense of purpose - where everyone profits.

  • Tom O'Neill, President
    “Suzanne Stevens spoke to our Annual Convention in Niagara Falls and just nailed it! One of the most difficult challenges in business today, the creation of a workplace culture where people want to work and want to stay, is no easy subject  and can easily become cliché ridden and preachy. Suzanne attacked the issue with energy and critical insight. She demolished the myths  around worker shortages and generational differences and then constructed an alternative approach that was seized upon by our franchisees. A post convention survey of all speakers placed her ahead of all our speakers in terms of giving them a new insight and a practical strategy for solving this challenge. Well done!"

  • Marcey Saunders, CHRE
    "Suzanne is a bundle of positive energy with practical tips to share. She was highly engaging at our convention, getting everyone in the room interacting and leaving us with realistic ideas for recognizing and appreciating our team members. It was clear that Suzanne tailored her keynote address to our industry and company. I would highly recommend Suzanne as a professional speaker for any corporate event!"
