Suzie Lavington

After graduating from Bristol University with a BA in Drama, Suzie Lavington kicked off her career in film… on the ‘other’ side of the camera. After she’d had enough of making tea for famous actors and longing to trade places, she trained at Drama Studio London and made an almost living in theatre for the next decade.

Though she’s spent the biggest chunk of her life messing about on stage, Suzie’s achievements aren’t limited to the acting/speaking profession alone. As far as she knows, her year 6 sports day welly-throwing record still stands and she’d happily challenge anyone to a thumb war.

She’s on a mission to dial up people’s happiness… and show them that their potential really does stretch to infinity… and way, way beyond (if they put the graft in)!

In no particular order, Suzie is a bestselling author (A Girl’s Guide to Being Fearless, Wiley 2020), mum, trainer, MC, keynote speaker. She delivers a range of Art of Brilliance sessions in business, public and education sectors, and coaches all ages in the art of public speaking.

Suzie enjoys boxing and eating hummus. Though not always at the same time. She’s also a voiceover artist and keeps threatening to tread the boards again. She shares her Buckinghamshire home with her relentlessly patient husband, their two spectacular girls (by far her proudest achievements), and a lifetime collection of DVDs they never watch.

Nice words about Suzie

“The course I think I’ve spent my whole life waiting for.”
Associate Director, Lumon

“Suzie led the session brilliantly, all colleagues commented on how energetic and engaging Suzie was and made the session from start to finish. ‘Inspiring’, ‘Captivating’ and ‘Knowledgeable’ were frequently used terms when we asked colleagues to comment on Suzie.”
Warwickshire County Council

“Suzie’s session was so empowering, and it actually made me quite emotional at various points! It is one of the best training sessions/workshops I’ve been to, and I will never forget it. I’m grateful that I now have a bank of techniques and phrases that I can say to myself when that doubt creeps in.”
Hampshire & Isle of White Fire & Rescue Service

“A HUGE thank you for speaking at the EWiF Awards and for delivering such an AMAZING presentation. The feedback we received has blown me away. We really couldn’t have hosted such a fantastic event without you.”

‘Suzie left the team really thinking about the choices they can make to influence their day. Wowsers! Thank you for really bringing the day together. Can’t recommend you or the Art of Brilliant enough!!!! 5 ⭐️ and then some!’
