Suzanne Leclaire

Business Coach / Academy Master
Expertise: persoonlijke visie en strategie

Suzanne has been working with and for creative professionals for more than twenty years. From a deep belief in the power and necessity of (their) creativity for the social and business tasks of today and the future.  

Entrepreneurship in culture

As a Master in Cultural Sciences and Arts Management she started her career as an art consultant for business. After three years, she made the switch to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science where she became project leader of the Culture Plan Action Plan under Rick van der Ploeg: the first national government program, in which she invested in a wider public for art and culture. After various management positions within the ministry, she put her mission into practice as director of the Pier K. Center for the Arts. Here she led more than 200 (art) professionals through a solid transition to a more entrepreneurial organization.

Art + dialogue = innovation

In 2013 she started her own company, Suzannes Zaak, from which, among other things, the Cabinet for Living Research came into being. This is an innovative service for companies to investigate their strategic issues through art and dialogue. Suzanne shares the mission that Braenworks stands for and, as an Academy Master, consultant and coach of Braenworks Academy, contributes to the growth of (own) value of creative professionals in the Netherlands. As a Braenworks Academy Master, Suzanne is co-responsible for the content of the module 2 module on Vision & Strategy.
