Susan Sutherland

I’m Susan Sutherland and I am a ‘Next Chapter’ coach.

I help mid-to-late-career and/or mid-life people discover what is next for them professionally, personally, or both!

After a 29+ year C-suite corporate career, I began my own ‘next chapter’ by starting my coaching practice. I am also a co-owner of a 540- hectare ranch in rural South Africa – where I spend 50% of my time – running a guest house and retreat centre.

Susan is based in California USA from May-October 2021 and in South Africa from November 2021 to April 2022 – click here to check your timezone.

What clients say about

coaching with them

“I began working with Susan during a time of tremendous personal and professional transition and am grateful beyond words for her brilliant, compassionate support. Susan’s intuition and holistically supportive approach addresses immediate challenges without losing sight of the greater strategic picture and the importance of personal wellness.”

Nikka R.

“I needed to make a career change yet I felt paralyzed. I had been successful in the non-profit sector for nearly fifteen years and knew it was time for a change. Then I started working with Susan. As a woman nearing 60 years old, facing the job market was especially daunting and I was so grateful to have Susan as a sounding board and coach. She gently pushed me out of my comfort zone, and after working with Susan I landed my dream job in the private sector at the salary I deserved.”
