“I think a major act of leadership right now, call it a radical act, is to create the places and processes so people can actually learn together, using our experiences”

Margaret J. Wheatley

Gain co-creative insights into what kind of leader you need to be in the 21st century...


Sue has been working in equine facilitated experiential learning and therapy since 2009. This will be her first public engagement marrying the important work she now does with horses and 30 years experience working with organisations, including running a marketing communications business and as a coach and facilitator. 

The well known writer and management consultant Meg Wheatley who studies organizational behaviour through systems thinking, theories of change, chaos theory and leadership says “I think a major act of leadership right now, call it a radical act, is to create the places and processes so people can actually learn together, using our experiences” Sue is applying this to her work with horses.


On a Adventures with Horses programme, course or workshop participants gain new insights into how to authentically step into a co-creative leadership style and practice and embody presence and authenticity. They will get to experience being in a place of power with, rather than power over, or no power at all, in the many different leadership positions and situations you find yourself.


The intent will be that participants will gain a clearer vision of how to move forward from where they are to where they need to be in times of change and uncertainty.


Sue has worked with sustainable business consultant, public speaker and author Giles Hutchins, in his book Future Fit he writes:


"Returning our senses to our social herd-like nature is not a sign of weakness, but a place to gain personal responsibility through wisdom and courage. As we gain wisdom we increase our ability to become conscious co-creators for ourselves, each other and all of life. In this way, working on our leadership presence with horses provides a rich opportunity to refine our natural leadership qualities. We deconstruct our rationality constrained ideas of leadership and learn that everyone has leadership capabilities and responsibilities."
