SUE IZZO - BIO
Sue Izzo was born to help people achieve their dreams. In 1999 Sue founded Mosaic Sports Management, a boutique sports management agency (think female Jerry McGuire) with a focus on representing professional action sports athletes. From procuring and negotiating multi-million dollar endorsement
deals, developing and producing global entertainment and event properties for
ESPN, ABC, and NBC, to building globally recognized athlete brands Sue was a
trailblazer in her industry.
Representing Winter Olympians, ESPY winners, X Games Gold Medalists, World Champion Surfers, and Television Hosts, Sue made a name for herself as not only a top sports agent but the only female to own a sports management agency and dominate in a male-driven cut-throat profession. During her tenure, Sue created multiple businesses with her clients, including a headphone company, non-profits, product lines, and entertainment projects. In 2015, Sue sold her business to Octagon, a global sports management company.
After a battle with breast cancer in 2016, Sue shifted gears and joined Basic Bananas, a small business marketing education company based out of Australia, establishing and heading up their United States business. Sue spent two years educating small to mid-size business owners on how to stand out amongst their competition, build a powerful brand, create and implement effective marketing strategies, and develop systems in order to automate and scale their businesses so they could have more freedom to do what they enjoyed while their businesses produced revenue.
Because of her in-depth experience and expertise in business and as a successful entrepreneur, not to mention her awe-inspiring personal story Sue is an audience favorite as a speaker. Sue is a captivating storyteller who seamlessly weaves her business knowledge with personal stories while infusing laughter to inspire and educate her audiences.
Today Sue helps entrepreneurs, executives, and business owners get unstuck in business (and life) by combining business consulting and coaching. It is her mission to teach people in business the tools needed to identify their roadblocks in business, create solutions to move through them, and develop a kick-ass unstoppable growth mindset through her masterminds, coaching, supper clubs, and speaking engagements.
