Susanne Conrad


Susanne is the founder of Lightyear Leadership, and has worked as a leadership and communication advisor for more than 30 years.

Susanne hails from a tiny island in the Pacific Northwest and loves orcas, sea otters and salmon. Her connection with nature and faith in humanity is contagious—watch out jaded misanthropes! Susanne is a storyteller here to restore your peculiarity and find the frequency that liberates the You that you came to be.

When not leading progressive programs for companies, dancing, or sending her positively charged electrons through web conferences, Susanne can be found in her Sprinter Van “Gloria” in National Parks, cooking some vegetarian dish for her awesome husband Brett and talking with one of her inspiring, adventurous adult kids.

Susanne lives the Lightyear Leadership initiative to receive, integrate, and shareback. She has organized trips to Ethiopia in collaboration with imagine1day, and to Mozambique, to train, develop and certify leaders who deliver Lightyear’s foundational programs to teachers, government ministers, advisory council members, and students across the country. She also loves to lead sweaty events integrating music, movement, Lightyear principles, and laughter.
