She now specialises in Leadership, Executive and Personal Coaching, along with all things collaboration. She’s degree qualified, a Master NLP Practitioner and a Mental Health First Aider but Tab isn’t all about “chit chat” she has an unprecedented combo of insight and positivity – which is way off the charts compared to most mortals.

Tab uses this model to help teams achieve greater outcomes with less waste and increased productivity.

I’m Elizabeth Houghton.

Elizabeth Houghton is a Leadership and Executive Coach with an extensive background as a HR Executive. Her greatest satisfaction comes from inspiring people to think differently and to capitalise on the evolving world of work.

She loves working with people to uncover their passion and helping them achieve their professional goals – because when our work brings us satisfaction it impacts positively on all aspects of our lives, our self-confidence and our wellbeing.

Aside from working with leaders and emerging leaders from diverse industries for well over a decade, Elizabeth has been featured in several UK publications discussing modern leadership approaches to create environments where all team members can thrive. She hates to name drop, but here are a few – Yahoo Finance, Home Business Magazine, 35 Thousand. When she isn’t writing articles or listening to podcasts, she is a typical English tea drinker, even in the middle of the Australian summer – she believes a cup of tea and a biscuit is the first step to solving any situation.

I’m Sally Dahl.

Sally Dahl is the human behind our marketing and comms, with over 25 years’ experience in marketing and branding.

Salz has worked her magic in pretty much every business size from multi-nationals to start ups. To add another string to her bow, Salz decided she would add a qualification in personal styling to sit alongside her marketing quals and help build clients personal brands.

To be honest we lean on her for all things branding, socials and communications but she also works with us on our own personal brands and style. She uses running as down time, loves to cook and is partial to joining in on a good cheese and wine session. We call that multiskilled at Suzy Miller HQ.

I’m Summa Smith.

Summa Smith, affectionately known around the office as “Sum Sum”, is our all-rounder extraordinaire.

With over 10 years’ experience managing a variety of charity events, national event series and corporate activations to all things operations management, Sum just loves hiding from our camera and smashing out perfection behind the scenes.

So diverse in her skill set that she can coordinate just about anything. Summa thrives on attention to detail, problem solving and those boring bits that make Suzy want to put pins in her eyes, like document version control and excel formulas. She’s our “Head Fuse” here at Suzy Miller HQ, without which, well not much happens (accept the drinking of wine).
