Excellent speaker and motivator. After this summit, I am looking forward to apply and experiment everything I have learned. Very inspiring and refreshing. I feel empowered and energized. Great tips and tricks. Thank you!
Excellent seminar! Sue France is a captivating speaker, kept my full interest at all times.
Sue was very interesting, loved her stories and learned a lot through her life experiences.

I got my drive and motivation to move forward, plan my actions, do things differently and better. So thank you for today!

It was really inspirational to listen and understand how to be a PA and become a successful role model, trainer and woman!  The seminar helped me to believe that I am on the right way to my bright future! Thank you Sue!

“Sue is a fantastic trainer!!! She delivered Secretarial Training to the ladies in our office and she kept it interesting and fun whilst also informative and extremely helpful. Her tips and skills were passed on from her extensive experience and her enthusiasm rubbed off on us all. I would highly recommend her.”

Seminar was full of new and useful information. The group activities allowed us to hear different opinions and solutions.

Fantastic information and great networking opportunity!

Excellent Summit, very well organized, documented, funny and interesting. Thank you!

Sue is fantastic, everything she talked about was helpfu

Found the seminar to be both engaging and interactive, which for me is a great way to learn new things as well as find out ways to improve on what I already know.

I was recently fortunate enough to attend one of Sue France’s workshops at the Behind Every Leader Conference in California. I would highly recommend any chance you can get to attend a workshop or read her books “The Definitive Personal Assistant & Secretarial Handbook,” and “The Definitive Executive Assistant & Managerial Handbook.”

Love how interactive the seminar is! The speaker is fun and so interesting to listen to, I loved all her stories.

Sue is a wonderful motivational speaker. I left the day very satisfied and refreshed.

Very interesting and informative. Great tips and tricks!

Thank you for the training in Dubai, it was pleasure meeting you I learned so much from the training it was encouraging, innovative.
