Suzanne is the President and Lead Trainer of Franchetti Communications, offering 20 years of experience in executive communication coaching. Suzanne is passionate about actualizing the drive for success. She advises CEOs of Fortune 1000 firms and leaders within the world’s largest companies. In addition to working with highly respected names in retail, Suzanne is the go-to executive media and presentation trainer for Wall Street and the financial services community, having trained thousands of investment bank and Big 4 accounting firm executives, hedge fund portfolio managers and private equity partners. Principals at many of the top names in business have Suzanne on speed dial.
Suzanne has the ultimate respect for her clients’ passion to excel, which may have something to do with her being one of only three presentation coaches invited behind the scenes at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
Suzanne is thrilled to partner with Franchetti Communications’ clients and propel them to their full potential.
Suzanne holds a B.A from Mount Holyoke College and an M.Ed. in training and development from the University of Maryland at College Park. She began her career at Tulane University in New Orleans where she focused on student development and learning outside of the classroom. An eternal Mets fan and wine afficionado, when she’s not working with clients, Suzanne can be spotted whipping up her famous chocolate chip pancakes, playing Monopoly with her son (he always wins), Legos with her twin daughters, or cuddling their beloved Boston Terrier.
The Franchetti group understands the art of communication, and the overwhelming importance of it. They teach you what good and bad communication does to your business and then skillfully teach you how to become comfortable with it and master it!
Jack is one of the most experienced media trainers with whom I've had the pleasure to work with….He is always well prepared with the media issues that our clients are facing and he is always well versed on the industries in which our clients operate… Some of my clients at the most senior level have said that Jack's course is one of the best that they've ever taken.
Suzanne’s ability to help speakers plan and deliver powerful presentations is remarkable. From corporate finance professionals to 17- year old high school interns, to the visionary Executive Directors of nonprofit organizations, I have watched Suzanne tailor her work to help her audience masterfully connect with theirs.
We have been able to improve public speaking, presentation skills, marketing techniques and media communications across our organization. Several of our local markets have found success by using the techniques introduced in the Franchetti programs resulting in new clients and business.
