I’m pleased to recommend Susanna Shamim, principal of HiPoint Coaching who was recommended to me by a colleague. She and I partnered when I wanted to pursue a new opportunity applying my knowledge and expertise in enterprise-wide digital transformation. Susanna was excellent as a coach and led me through a process of self-discovery to more clearly articulate my value proposition as a leader. Her branding of my executive resume was very distinctive and received the necessary traction, opening doors to many conversations which eventually led me to landing my next position. I’m very grateful to have met Susanna and will be using her services in the future as well as referring colleagues.

Brad C.,

Chief Digital Officer , GlobalFoundries (former CIO, Lexmark)

I was a senior executive who just exited a 12-year tenure in an amazing job due to consolidation….and then the pandemic hit. Being a senior exec in the entertainment industry looking for a new gig during the pandemic was daunting. I started working with Susanna and the dark clouds just dissipated. She’s smart, strategic, honest, kind (but doesn’t sugar coat things, which I appreciated so much), and not only helped me create a top-notch resume and linkedin profile, but she also greatly assisted me in understanding my true value, boosted my confidence and helped me narrow my goals. Her advice, as well as her various exercises and interview prep, was invaluable. I can’t recommend Susanna enough! Grazie mille, Susanna!

Creative Vice President, Start-up (formerly at Warner Bros and Disney)

Susanna was able to provide an objective perspective and was a solid sounding board as I assessed the next chapter of my career. She offers sound advice and champions her clients by reinforcing constructive narratives. She brought fresh perspective to both my resume and LinkedIn profile as well as offering me search strategies to target my next career move. I am grateful to have worked with Susanna, who I found at exactly the right time in my journey.

Nadia K.

Regional Vice President, Intermountain Healthcare (formerly at MGM International Resorts)

Susanna Shamim- Executive Career Coach is the partner you want if you want to land in the C-Suite. She has a way of drawing out your best qualities and gives you all the encouragement, support, and “tough love” you need to land. Her superlative abilities to profile me in a distinctive C-Suite resume and LinkedIn profile opened doors for multiple interview opportunities. The climb to the C-Suite is not easy and having Susanna in your corner as a coach, confidante, and advisor is absolutely essential. I couldn’t have gone through the multiple rounds of interviews. And finally, when it came to negotiating compensation, she boosted my confidence and gave me talking points to get the best package I could have gotten. I’m very appreciative to Susanna and would encourage you to engage her services immediately—don’t waste time looking for anyone else.
