We reached out to Barrett Consulting with a need to explore best practices in large commercial structures, from the first call we were really impressed of how engaging and responsive Sue Barrett was and how quickly she understood our business. She was fantastic in challenging our thinking from day 1, encouraging us to continue to look from the customers’ eyes within all of our market segments. She was great to ensure we looked into the future, take a broad-er view and consider options outside of our industry. We had some tight deadlines and Barrett Consulting were easy to work with to meet our deadlines and follow up after workshops. Sue is an amazing facilitator and finds a way to bring the ideas out from all, while keeping senior leaders engaged. I would highly recommend Sue and her team when considering a team with great insight, expertise and quick to respond and understand.

There are not many people in this world like Sue Barrett. Sue is one of those people whose energy changes a room – this was the case during our first session at the Victorian Institute of Sport Barrett Business Program. Sue combines evidence and practice in a way that relates directly to you, and helps spark meaningful change. This is extremely powerful when combined with a delightful sense of humour and ability to form sincere connections. As such, I was excited to discover that Sue has managed to capture these key ingredients in her book “142 Days of Gratitude – that changed my life forever”. A mix of science, neuroplasticity, vulnerability, and desire to help others, all shine through strongly, and provide for an enjoyable read that I can highly recommend. It’s a legs up from me!
