Creating space to see and hear
Good conversations open doors and windows. They help us hear ourselves and each other, and are more than their sum of the parts.
Occasionally, we need to give them more space. And especially if we are crossing a threshold or making a new path when we need to see where we are and where we are going more clearly.
Waterside Conversations with me, Sue Heatherington, are for these times.
These are individually designed and facilitated sessions – normally whole-day – for fresh thinking and conversations that matter, which wouldn’t happen without intentionally creating space.
Normally for existing teams or partnerships, they have also been used for emerging collaboration and convening groups around a purpose.
Over the last decade, clients have included national performing arts organisations, academic and professional institutions, life-science and design companies, government bodies, churches and charities.
They build on my experience of senior executive leadership (NHS CEO) and pioneering systemic change, along with my expertise as a professional thinking partner and Gestalt trained coach.
We can host these conversations at The Waterside, or I can deliver them at a suitable location closer to your base.
Join me for some quiet space at the edge:
- Online – 2-hour session via Zoom to explore where you are and re-frame what you see, including how to move forward. Bookable up to three weeks in advance for £150
- In-person – spend a regenerative morning or afternoon here at The Waterside to renew your perspective on who you are and what you are doing. Bookable up to five weeks in advance for £250
“Thinking what next? Need space to even think?
From direct experience, I would highly recommend Sue’s work and the wonderful space that has been created at the Waterside.
Waterside Conversations sound like an ideal starting point and very accessibly priced.”

“I highly recommend Sue Heatherington Sue was part of two by 90-minute conversations with me recently that gave me great clarity. Sue has a knack of asking wonderful questions and really zeroing in on what matters.”
