SUZANNE DURET – FOUNDER & CEO
Suzanne has tackled every facet of a starting and growing businesses. In the process she has worn every hat from idea generator to CEO. This unique experience brings the ability to work inside any type of business from small to large with an understanding that academics doesn’t offer, resulting in clients scaling beyond anticipated goals.
Suzanne has started and built eight companies of her own within a variety of industries and worked with companies around the globe. She has extensive experience in business development, innovation, creating communication cultures, digital marketing, problem-solving, sales processes, startups, and fundraising. More importantly, she has helped business owners and corporate executives create stellar results impacting bottom line profit, growth goals, improved processes, functioning teams, and far more.
While working with owners and corporate executives, Suzanne saw consistent issues throughout companies of every size. These include a lack of communication activities that uncover opportunities and damaging issues, no effective process to rapidly solve known problems, advertising that misses the mark, inefficient sales activities based on selling instead of serving, and cultures that don’t foster open communication and entrepreneurial mindsets.
“Every problem has a solution
when you know how to ask the right questions.”
Suzanne’s first venture was a medical products company started in Clearwater, FL with a physician business partner. She negotiated a $500K manufacturing contract in order to create an inventory of products with NO upfront money. In less than 30 days, before closing on $1.2 million in venture capital, Suzanne negotiated multiple signed contracts for nationwide sales and distribution. Just a short 21 months later that business was successfully sold to Ballard Medical Products (later acquired by Kimberly-Clark).
In 2008 Suzanne developed the Synergy Conversation methodologies and has passionately helped clients advance with these, and other, innovative solutions. She has played a role in the success of countless startups, small businesses, nonprofits, and corporations, including projects for Walgreens and The Four Seasons.
As a side note, in the mid-90s Suzanne wrote and self-published Inventing for Wealth, with a Foreword by world-renowned businessman Tony Robbins. She also developed a course on raising capital.
