Engineer turned serial entrepreneur!
While in her early thirties, Suzanne started her ﬁrst energy company – and she has never looked back. She has seen tremendous success through developing ﬁve oil and gas companies; Touchstone Petroleum, Chariot Energy, Auriga Energy, Black Shire Energy, and her latest passion – Imaginea Energy.
Suzanne’s philosophy and leadership triumphs culminated in the sale of her last company, Black Shire Energy which, sold for $358 million in 2014.
Known to be bold, and to some…a little ‘crazy’ (the good kind), Suzanne’s credentials and reputation back her success. She faces the world head-on and certainly isn’t one to fear a mega-challenge!
The inspiration for Imaginea Energy, her present company and arguably her greatest venture, unfolds through her many interviews, speaking engagements and TV appearances.
Suzanne’s creative ideas, perspectives and opinions are captured through her weekly blogging on the Huﬃngton Post, and through Imaginea’s own publishing platform. Rumour has it that she has a book or two in the works as well that captures her story and explains her approach to business. Stay tuned!
If you haven’t heard Suzanne speak publicly you haven’t experienced the essence of a truly raw and authentic leader freely expressing a vision that is in her heart.
Suzanne is known for captivating audiences on stage with her compelling and inspiring stories. Her voice has the sheer power to motivate others to take meaningful and necessary business risks, and to believe in unimaginable possibilities again. She brings back the starry eyes and bushy tails in all of us!
At the heart of Suzanne’s story is the need for humans to change how they interact with the planet, and each other. Appreciating that actions speak louder than words, she founded Imaginea Energy as a means to put boots to the ground and actually implement, herself, the changes she talks about and inspires in others. Suzanne West intends to be the example, proving to the energy industry that there is a “new way of doing business”.
Suzanne West’s journey of awakening and discovery is inspiring, but it has only just begun. Through Imaginea Energy her story continues to unfold!
Say, “Yes it could be possible,” before you say,
“No I don’t think it will work.”
