Angela Sutcliffe, Past President
Angela Sutcliffe is an award-winning business consultant who has been in business longer than most people have even thought of owning a business.
She speaks from the heart and from practical experience as well as the experience gained from over 25 years of working with business owners full of anxiety, self-doubt and fear. She swears that business is not for the faint of heart! Her ability to distil complex business concepts into easy-to understand, immediately implementable next steps—and her whacky, self-depreciating sense of humour—engages people in their own process of change and helps them to shift the internal dialogue from “I’m not sure I’m doing this right” to “oh, this is normal, of course I can”.
Angela is the consummate story-teller which means that what she teaches sticks. She is an advocate for applied learning – in other words, ideas are good, action steps are better. Nobody walks away from one of Angela’s presentations without at least three “to do’s” to keep the momentum going. She calls it “practical motivation”.
