“Susanne and her team have a phenomenal support to me in turning my passion into a business. She is so passionate about what she does that it invariably rubs off on you. Her knowledge and encouragement have really helped me to gain clarity and push me forward in my business ventures. I feel so comfortable talking to her and expressing my ideas.

Janet Ellis

“I have been working with DiscoverChange for nearly 2 years now. DiscoverChange has helped TalentsBrand to implement so many processes in order to effect smart working as well as generating more leads thereby increasing income. Among many processes they have implemented for us are; Email marketing which was set up via Mailchimp and linked it to our website. They also worked on our Facebook page ensuring we follow the right marketing strategies. They did a remarkable work on our training platform. This was created from the scratch and now we have started making sales from this platform. Another great work by DiscoverChange was the face lift out our website which now looks professional and fit for purpose. Overall, DiscoverChange are highly professional in their dealings. They are passionate about their work with great attention to details. They have always worked to ensure that the solution provided fit your business needs. I also believe that their prices are highly competitive. I will recommend DiscoverChange if you are looking to transform your business digitally with process that works.”

Favour Bolaji

“I was introduced to Susanne last Summer. I was at a stage in my life where I knew I wanted to make some significant changes both personally and business wise. I started with the 'Personal Development Coaching Program for Self-Discovery & Fulfillment' programme one to one. I then progressed on to 'Unleash Your Inner Entrepreneur' which I am currently in the process of doing. Suffice to say Susanne has encouraged me, inspired me, forced me out of my comfort zone and regularly given me a good metaphorical push! Her training is excellent, her communication style energetic and she is just generally amazing. Hand on heart, working with Susanne for the last 6 - 8 months has been life changing and I shall be forever grateful.”

Anne Wallis

“Over the past few months of working with Susanne and Ed at DiscoverChange, I've made more progress with regards to understanding my brand and how to help my ideal clients find me than I've made in the last 6 years I've been in business! Susanne makes the branding and marketing process not only simple but also fun and I've thoroughly enjoyed my meetings and calls with her. In my experience, working with a business coach can be a bit stressful but the DiscoverChange experience has been completely the opposite for me and has shown me a model of working with clients that I hope to emulate with my own. If you are feeling a bit "stuck" with regards to your business, I would recommend getting in touch with Susanne without delay: unsticking businesses is definitely her speciality!”

Caroline Bublik

“I signed a contract with DiscoverChange because I was struggling to get new clients. We began with an intensive half day session during which Susanne asked me everything about my business and through discussion led me to a clear map of my sales funnel; helped me clarify my product offer; priced up my service packages. Susanne and Edward helped me to create an effective marketing strategy, improved my website, created me a Facebook page and online training platform, set up a lead generation and 121 booking process, and even provided 121 support in my live workshops. They also helped to schedule professional and branded posts, and I got my first enquiry almost immediately. If you run a business by yourself and are struggling to get more customers, I would recommend DiscoverChange, Susanne and Edward. Great job guys, thank you!”

Ellen Mukwewa

“Susanne regularly delivers professional training workshops to the students of University of Wolverhampton. She covers areas of employability, confidence, teamwork, leadership and management. Prior to delivering the workshop Susanne carefully assesses the students’ needs to target her delivery appropriately. Having spent time in a number of workshops, it’s evident Susanne can work with any audience and can successfully lead the groups. Every year I receive excellent feedback from students who value Susanne’s training, thanking for this opportunity. Susanne is a social philanthropist, and I have no hesitation in recommending her training opportunities.”

Asia Alder

“Susanne’s workshop about taking my business to the next level was exhilarating and valuable. Before today I wasn’t sure how to use my video content but now I know how, where and why. The most useful for me was to write down what’s in it for my customers. From today I will stop procrastinating with making videos. Thank you Susanne, I would definitely recommend DiscoverChange workshops for other entrepreneurs.”

Mike Morris

“In my e-commerce business I train and mentor other leaders. I didn't know how to progress further to what I wanted it become. I approached Susanne because it felt like she could help me with the business development. I needed my professional emails, website, content, videos, and Susanne helped and pushed me to do these things. Susanne is very different from others - she's set weekly targets and helped to achieve them. We've kept contact every week and she's physically helped me to set all the processes up and made sure I'm okay with everything. All the things alien to me before, such as event promotion and Facebook advertising, I now use in my business. I definitely would recommend DiscoverChange for other businesses!”

Tuyyabah Amjid

“Susanne Virtanen has such passion to develop business leaders. She has the great gift of making the development of a business strategy fun and exciting in order to generate great self belief to explode our businesses - thank you so much for making such a difference.”

Lizzy Bernthal

“I attended Susanne's business workshop in Warwick yesterday and I can't recommend Susanne and her team enough. I learned so much from her and the guest speakers yesterday and simply too much to list. Susanne is such an authentic individual and is someone who genuinely cares about your business, your self development, and your success. I have always struggled with being confident online, concerning myself with how people perceive me rather than the message I'm trying to deliver. Personally, she helped me recognised that my limitations are are self imposed (and irrational) and that I'm the only one standing in front of my own success. If your a business leader I would highly recommend her workshop.”
