Suzanne Bourke

Bachelor of Psychology;
Currently Studying Diploma of Neuroscience in Leadership

Suzanne joined Synergy Global as our Team Leader of Effectiveness Consulting in November 2014, after a strong career in Human Resources and running her own successful consulting business. She commenced her career with a variety of HR roles in large multinational companies, gaining practical and broad expertise across the general HR/OD area by partnering with leaders to improve people management strategy and skills.

Suzanne then moved into the field of Occupational Health and Safety plus Occupational Rehabilitation, as General Manager of NRU Worklife, where she led the business to market leadership in outcomes and service quality. Committed to creating a great values-based and client-centric company culture, Suzanne recruited the best possible talent in the field, then trained and mentored them – growing the company from 6 consultants to 30 - increasing turnover and profit x10 over a five year period.

As a founding Managing Director of Work Solutions Group Pty Ltd. (WSG), Suzanne helped drive an innovative culture of entrepreneurship, staff empowerment, fun and achievement. WSG became the OH&S feild ‘employer of choice’ - proving to be a training ground for many successful and future industry leaders.

Suzanne created a partnership approach with clients such as Australia Post, Telstra, Woolworths, Visy, Grocon, Heinz, Carter Holt Harvey, plus a variety of major hospitals and government departments. WSG grew over the next 10 years nationally to 150 staff. The business also won a national business award – the Australian Government and Telstra Small Business Award  (1997) delivering value to clients and improving business performance/results.

With more than 30 years Executive/Board experience across strategic and operational levels of leadership, Suzanne is passionate and committed to working with clients to develop capability and effectiveness, with High Performing Teams (HPTs), supported by a culture for organisational sustainability and success.

Suzanne is soon to complete her Diploma in Neuroscience Leadership and is enjoying sharing the latest brain science in leadership with her clients and colleagues at Synergy Global.

When not at work Suzanne can be found enjoying the company of her two daughters 11 and 14 years; great movies; bushwalks with her husband; and planning the next adventurous holiday.
