Marian hosted a workshop as part of our weekly #ThursdayGathering, a convening that brings together 250-300 people. Out of the 10+ sessions that evening, hers received the most positive feedback from attendees. Her talk was engaging, interactive, and left people eager to implement the takeaways. She has a way of explaining and clarifying topics that makes it easier for the audience to understand and apply immediately. We are excited to continue our collaboration with Marian and have her come back again to lead more sessions! I highly recommend her as a speaker!

Marian was the Opening Keynote Speaker at our Entrepinayship Conference and her talk was absolutely powerful. She inspired, educated and activated myself and the audience through captivating and authentic storytelling. Her talk was interactive, funny and she was able to truly connect with the audience as she spoke. If you are looking for a dynamic and engaging keynote speaker, I highly recommend Marian. We are already talking about how we can bring her back for future events.

Marian spoke and facilitated a meditation/mindfulness workshop at our Annual Board Leadership Retreat. We found her to be very engaging and authentic with a passion for educating leaders about mental health, meditation, and wellness. Through her work, the national leadership team walked away with a new set of tools that they could integrate into their own lives and infuse into members of their team in the various chapters, as well as solid and focused start to our weekend of meetings and activities. Days after the workshop, senior members in attendance were still discussing her work with us, and each of our chapter presidents expressed enthusiasm at working with her going forward.

Marian’s authentic approach to sharing what it means to live a Thriver lifestyle is thought provoking and invigorating! Even though her programming is focused on women’s’ empowerment, and mental health & wellness, I can attest that I took away much from her presentation at our March 2019 leadership development event. I came away from the event with new approaches to relieving some of the stresses of day to day living and bringing better balance into my life. I know that many of our members are looking forward to learning more from Marian!

Marian is the type of speaker who not only inspires and motivates the audience, but gets them to take action after. Her passion for making a positive impact on people’s lives and helping people heal is evident in how she speaks.
