  • What’s different about Decide Happy?
    I believe in providing “Practical Tools for Busy People.” Decide Happy takes a practical “How To” approach to building mental strength and resilience. I’ve built my training and consulting career on helping people and companies take simple, consistent actions to get measurable and quantifiable results.

My goal is to provide an entertaining, interactive and engaging session that not only leaves your team inspired to take action, but gives them tools to make a difference immediately. As in “Right here. Right now.” They will learn and use these tools and skills right then in the session to manage stress and tap into more joy. And they will have so much fun and enjoy the process!

  • I have a lot riding on choosing the right speaker for our event. How can I be assured our team will be happy with Decide Happy?
    I get it! Having coordinated and facilitated hundreds of events over the years, I know first -hand how many details go into pulling off a successful event. I have built my business through repeat business and referrals. I use the same, proven consultative process with speaking and workshop clients that I use for corporate training to make sure we are spot-on aligned with your goals and objectives so your event is a win!
  • What is the process Susan recommends to assure the speech/workshop is relevant and relatable with our team?
    Oh I’m so glad you asked that! The prep really is the "secret sauce” to a great event. Prior to your event, I’ll want to talk with you and/or a few of your colleagues to clarify your expectations and desired outcomes. Specifically, we'll discuss: What will make this a win for you and your team? What are the demographics of your audience? What are the challenges your team is experiencing? What is going great? What is stressing people out? By understanding your specific situation, I can customize the speech or workshop so that it “sings.” My goal is to conduct a session that’s both fun and interactive, and also relevant and hits home.
  • What are Susan’s speaking and workshop credentials? And my audience is all over the country/world. What is her experience presenting virtually?
    I’ve been facilitating business workshops and presenting to corporations my entire career- over 20 years. I know what it takes to engage an audience, get to the point, and leave them with tangible tools. I love presenting live and in person- and virtually! When 2020 hit, my training company pivoted quickly to facilitate life-changing training virtually. I know the tricks to keep a large (or small) audience engaged, and am experienced in most platforms, including Teams and Zoom. A virtual Decide Happy event is a great way to include and engage your team-members from across the country, and around the world.
  • Is it possible to talk with another client who has hired Decide Happy?
    Yes! Please contact me to let me know a little more about your event. This way, I can put you in touch with a client whose event was similar to provide you with relevant feedback.
  • Can Susan and help us with professional development as well as personal development?
    Absolutely! My purpose is to inspire others to see new possibilities and take action to make their lives extraordinary. This mission crosses the line between professional and personal development. After all, we bring our person to our profession, don’t we?

  • How long are the sessions, and how are they conducted?
    Sessions can be conducted virtually or in-person. Speaking engagements are 30-60 minutes in length. 45-50 minutes tends to be the “sweet spot.” Decide Happy interactive workshops run between 1.5 hours to 1 day.
  • How much do Decide Happy workshops or speaking engagements cost?
    Each engagement is unique. Let’s talk about your specific objectives, audience, location and budget. I can quickly turn around a specific proposal of recommendations and pricing quote.

  • What else would be good for me to know?
    My goal is to make it easy for you to work with me. Having planned, orchestrated and led hundreds of projects throughout my career, I’ve learned a lot of valuable lessons , some of them painful! I take my client’s interest and expectations very seriously and work hard so it’s easy for you to work with me.
