Hear from Suzy Miller - CEO, The Opportunity Collective

Suzy Miller is a champion for Regional women and youth from diverse backgrounds, working to empower them to become the next generation of leaders. Throughout her career, Suzy has been passionate about taking her skills and translating them into programs and presentations that lift the aspiration and performance of underrepresented groups.

Suzy worked for the NAB for 21 years, as a senior manager leading teams of up to 250 staff. Suzy left in 2011, to established Leadership Within, an Executive Coaching and Leadership Development business, where she continues to work with leaders worldwide to build leadership capabilities.

Motivated by a desire to use her expertise for the community’s benefit, Suzy began volunteering and shortly after, was running Youth Leadership Programs. Over 6 years, Suzy’s leadership saw over 400 Central Coast/Hunter young people connect to their community, build their aspirations, goals and develop leadership skills.

Suzy’s passion to support women to reach their leadership potential and improve diversity, led her to establish the Not-for-Profit, The Opportunity Collective in 2016. She is passionate about improving the economic development for women in Regional Australia and giving them access to quality professional development. After successfully piloting their Women’s Leadership Program on the Central Coast in 2017, they have expanded into Newcastle and launch the 6th program in Maitland.
