Business Description:

Susan Strong is Founder and Owner of the Strong Coaching Academy (SCA) and Strong Consulting located in the city of Alameda in the San Francisco Bay Area. SCA specializes in working with small to medium businesses and helping them with their business and people strategies. She attributes her success to great listening skills and common sense and an un-ending curiousity to learn about people and business and an interest in helping her clients do and be their best. Susan’s career spans 30 years working first for a number of Fortune 500 companies as a Human Resources Executive and then as a Human Resources Consultant and finally as the owner of several business coaching practices. 


Susan has learned from owning her own small business coaching practice, that the most important thing small business owners need to get them through the first tumultuous years, is help with their lead generation and lead conversion strategies to generate regular cash flow.  Susan is the author of “45 Minutes Business Breakthroughs”, which identifies simple ways to find $10,000 in any business.  For those interested in taking a deeper dive and really building up their businesses, she has an E-Learning Marketing System with 52 (one a week) lead generation tools that can help any business be successful.


For those businesses already on a strong path and growth trajectory, ready to build a team, Susan can help strategize and execute on building that team and long term, practical Human Resources processes and programs.  Throughout her corporate career she was  an executive and career coach, and found that the leaders she worked with really valued having someone to talk to help them with their employee and leadership issues.    Susan can help with recruiting plans and terminations, training, organizational design, and employee relations to name a few of her areas of HR expertise.

Susan is a sought after speaker and has been a regular webinar presenter on business topics for the University of California, Berkeley Alumni Association.  One of her most popular topics is entitled, Women In Business: Ambition Is Not A Dirty Word, in which she emphasizes the need for women to negotiate and ask for what they are worth. Susan is passionate about helping women to overcome societal barriers that are keeping them from being successful. 

Susan is a 4th generation San Francisco Bay Area resident, and graduate of UC Berkeley.  In her free time she is an avid tennis player, a less avid golfer, book reader, and traveler. She is currently a Director on the Alameda Chamber of Commerce and a Business Advisor for the Diablo Valley College Business School. She is a past president of the Alameda Business Networking Group (ABN) and the Children’s Hospital Oakland Family House and has been a regular volunteer for over 20 years with the Oakland Museum White Elephant Sale.
