Lead Different with Suzzanne Laidlaw
James Bryant and Kieran Johnson speak with CEO and Executive Coach, Suzzanne Laidlaw.  With a vast amount of business experience as a business owner, now as a business coach, Suzzanne finds purpose in helping people create a better life for themselves. But it is not her business acumen which brings the greatest value.  A house fire, a severely injured husband, a new baby, a new business, a terminal illness and financial collapse. She has experienced it all and then some, but has used it to create a deliberate future.
