COMMUNICATE YOUR VALUES, MISSION + MESSAGE 

in the media • on camera • on stage • on social media

CEOs • Executives • Thought Leaders

In today's world you need to be ready to communicate your message in seconds—not minutes to capture attention + gain market share. I work privately with top business leaders to help them lose the fear + the fake so they communicate powerfully + naturally in any type of presentation or media interview. Typically, they multiply their revenue + expand their brand.

Entrepreneurs • Authors •  Influencers

Launching a business, book, product, service or cause? Afraid you’ll do or say the wrong thing that will ruin your business or brand? I’ll guide you through worst-case scenarios + prickly personalities. You’ll discover how to deeply tune in to your values + engage your perfect audience on a profound level. The result? Clients, customers, connections, sponsors + partnerships.

Celebrities • Athletes

The scrutiny celebrities and athletes endure can be intimidating and career crippling —if they don’t know how to handle the fierce examination of their words or actions. Whether it’s discussing the merits of their foundation, latest movie, product, book or game victory or loss, my fast, unique method gets both seasoned and rising stars ready to deliver their message with confidence and calm.

Start ups • Founders

When pitching investors start-ups often get tripped up by their personality trigger points + difficult or challenging investor questions—so they miss their chance to get funded. I focus on their leadership presence, delivering their pitch deck with confidence, ease + grace so they get funded from seed to series C + start or scale their business.

We partner with clients worldwide to develop + strengthen their effective media presence

SUSAN HARROW HAS MASTERED THE ART OF SOUNDBITE-SIZED STORYTELLING.

"She has a superhuman capacity for distilling big, complex ideas into TV- and radio-friendly nibbles. Consolidating your thoughts into short and sweet soundbites isn’t “cheesy” or “superficial.” It’s actually an exquisite art form. And like any art form, it takes disciplined practice to master."

YOUR COACHING HAS BEEN INVALUABLE.

Your coaching has been invaluable. I continue to see it coming out in my ongoing communication. Working with Susan for media appearances has been incredibly beneficial. It’s impacted the way I talk to my kids as well as in my business and other communications. There are always a lot of “ahas” and “takeaways" during my process. Susan was patient and non-judgmental. I’m excited about all the progress we’ve been making together. I’m very pleased with the way things are going.
