Susan Dunn's Facebook profile
"Participating in EQ Alive was transformational for me.  I signed up to 'learn a little more about this concept of emotional intelligence.' I got a whole lot more than I expected. I not only learned a lot about EQ, I found a model that links my work in face-to-face communication, employee engagement and leadership. Susan Dunn knows her stuff and is generous in sharing it with the course participants (who are, themselves, a very interesting lot). It is a very good learning experience."   
Sue Johnston, CEQ


"Susan Dunn is a wonderful teacher of EQ competencies. She’s a great listener and she truly cares about her clients. Susan is a giver- she goes much more than “the extra mile” with her time and materials. It was a pleasure working with her and I recommend her very highly." -- Mindy Ash, Advantage Communications, President

"Susan's vast knowledge and expertise in the area of emotional intelligence is very evident in the content of the material and its presentation. The emotional support and encouragement throughout the course has given me the opportunity to see and experience the world with new eyes. I couldn't help being affected positively. Good fortune was smiling on me the day I discovered Susan's site. It's absolutely fabulous and full of inspiration and motivation. Touches my soul. Susan is a true leader."
    -- Jane Juda, Canada

As a middle manager, parent and spouse, I thoroughly enjoyed the EQ Foundation Course©.  Much, much more successful than any of my other on-line courses....EQ ties into wellness ... very relevant with issues we all face today."  Cam Howey, Stelco, Inc., Canada, Supervising Metallurgist

I started this course Dec. 2001 and was immediately hooked.  I anticipated each week's installment and was VERY impressed with the personal approach that Susan took.  I cannot endorse this program enough.  The insights it offers into the actions of ourselves and others has been invaluable."  --Pam Glover, coach

"Thanks, Susan.  Your work is engaging, imaginative, and extremely timely for my growth and business development as a coach.  You took dry, flat stuff and made it easy for me to learn.  I really respect your abilities."  --Kathleen Spike, business coach, Portland, Oregon

"Susan is good in whatever she does.  She teaches you how to handle your emotions intelligently.  She is a natural Pro."  -- J.M.
