About Chris and Suzanne Styles
At age 28 Suzanne was hired into a leading South African Out-of-Home media company where she rose to become its first ever female director. Seven years later she exited the corporate. Over an 11 year period she and her then business partner strategically grew their all-women Out-of-Home media business in to an industry leading operation, selling it to a listed entity for a handsome profit. Suzanne has written a number of personal and professional success books and she and Chris helped co-author the 2013 double-bestselling youth leadership book, Leadership 2020: The Beginning. From September 2012 to December 2015 she and Chris hosted South Africa’s only dedicated weekly talk radio show on life and business success. This show received more than 250,000 podcast downloads during the 30 months. Suzanne now in her fifties, has savoured the pinnacles of professional success and experienced the depths of personal despair. She’s been there and done that and being ever practical, she knows what attracts success and what doesn’t!
Chris was formally trained as a research scientist and applied ecologist [M.Sc. cum laude, Univ. Pretoria]. It was back then that his fascination with success strategies began. In 1994 he was the youngest ever South African environmentalist to speak on Africa’s human-wildlife conflict issues at the House of Lords (London, UK) as the guest of Lord Gridley of Stockport. He exited Conservation and Applied Ecology in 1999 and spent the next 10 years in the Financial Services Sector. Despite being told in 1999 that “because of his wildlife ecology background, he was unemployable” in just 6 years he had worked himself up to the Exco level position of GM in one of SA’s leading banks. Chris exited the corporate world in 2010 because as he puts it “There just had to be more to life.” He loves to learn, to teach, to research and to write and has helped write a number of personal and professional success books across different industries. Chris now in his late has flown very high and also crashed and burned spectacularly too; he understands what it takes to rebuild after taking a hiding from life and how to shift from really wanting it to actually having it.
Who do we attract to us?
We attract people who DESIRE more success, who are prepared to get uncomfortable because they’re now DOING things very differently, who find themselves BELIEVING that there is much more to life and who are prepared to put their fears, uncertainties, worries and doubts [“all those nasty voices in their heads”] aside in order to shift themselves from really WANTING something, to actually HAVING it.
This is what we have been doing for many years and now we’ve rolled up all that we’ve learned and experienced in to IT’S A NEW WAY which explains why BEING+DOING+BELIEVING=HAVING™ and which then guides you through a “Shifting you from really wanting it to actually having it” learning programme and doing experience. Our teachings have been covered in over 30 television, radio, print and on-line media channels.
