Explore Your Edgeness™

the intersection of discovery & potential

What is your Edgeness™? In order to discover it, you need to push far enough outside your comfort zone that you meet someone you never met before – an enhanced version of you. We often stay in our comfortable zone, it is secure, and we know what to expect. Here there are fewer opportunities to be judged, and less opportunity to fail. But life begins at the edge.

The place where you have not gone before is the place to explore, to experiment. To start challenging the “What if?” Questioning is just the beginning. We need to take some risks and not be prisoners to our barriers where our view is limited rather than limitless.

In an interactive presentation, Suzanne takes individuals and organizations on an adventure to challenge their perceptions of what can be achieved. She starts with encouraging the audience to look at themselves, personally and professionally. Ultimately, she challenges the audience to looking beyond their immediate circumstance and to explore their individual and organization’s edgeness™ while optimizing personal performance.

This keynote is ideal to kick off a conference as it opens people’s minds to what each person needs to get rid of, keep and add to open up to learning.
