Susan Smith Brazill

< back to Find a CoachBarbra Bell

Creative and insightful, Susan has a passion for people. She brings insight, powerful intuition awareness and a sense of humour to her practice. A compelling coach, she has a gift for inspiring
people to live with purpose and make positive changes in their lives. Susan spent 25 years in leadership positions as vice president of her own management consulting company and then as a
Director of Communications & Corporate Services in the health sector.

Her past experiences have helped her see the need for a better way to approach strategic planning and integrate operational planning in this changing environment for both public and private organizations. This has evolved into creating “blacksmith s2o consulting”. The goal is to help organizations see themselves and their environment more clearly, define what success means to them, figure out where they want to be and, how to get there, and leave them feeling confident about moving forward with implementation. Coaching has tied in beautifully with this vision.

Susan is an accomplished leader with experience in project planning, communications, human resources, operational planning, enterprise content management, events planning and strategy.  She has a passion for health care. She has a BA in economics from McGill, and an MA in public administration from Carlton University. She loves learning. She is an ACC and certified Project Management Professional (PMP); and is certified in Balanced Scorecard, Six Sigma Green Belt and PUMP Performance Measurement. She is also bilingual.

Susan’s talents are not really limited to just strategy and coaching - at age 15 she consistently crushed the competition for throwing the discus. She plays classical piano, listens to opera and creates art with Japanese paper. She loves to travel and watch British murder mysteries. When she is not thinking or working on coaching, strategic planning and communications, you can find her creating gluten free food, supporting children in art, walking around Wascana Lake and loving her three children.
