Hello, I’m Susie.
I’m dedicated to making entrepreneurs, employees, and CEOs look, sound and feel good about public speaking. Over the past seven years, I’ve helped many become the rockstars of their industry and featured in Forbes in questionable attire (Nothing says ‘radical industry disrupter’ like a woman in an M&S jumper).
But how did I get there?
After graduating from drama school, I entered the corporate world. Soon I noticed that
the stiff, over-formal jargon of the 90s was still alive and kicking in the board rooms.
And people hated it. They came across as somebody they weren't: insecure, boring, and
repetitive. Because of my background in drama and acting, people began to ask me for
help ahead of speeches and presentations. Seven years and a certificate as a coach
later, I have helped teams at Rolls Royce, Disney and other corporations give the most
incredible and natural speeches in front of huge audiences.
I also share my thoughts and knowledge on my TikTok and LinkedIn and through my in-depth online course, The Susie Ashfield Academy.
I want you to feel amazing when talking to an audience, but even more, I want you to be able to be yourself when standing in front of people. I won't give you an autocue to work with because you won't need it.
I get up in the morning because I'm driven to share everything I've learned so people can communicate with confidence and reach their goals.
Originally from a famously odd (think Alan Partridge) part of the UK, I now live in London with an excellent life coach, a dog called Bolly. Skiing is my oldest hobby, whilst ice skating is my newest. I am also a volunteer mentor for Fine Cell Work.
Oh yeah, about that course again. If you sign up, you’ll get access to 24 modules packed with tips and tricks around communication and confidence, plus a 30% discount on all 1-on-1 coaching sessions. You can book a taster here.
