CEO & Executive Coaching | Business Strategy and Execution Key Leadership Training program   ​​​

"One of Marie’s greatest strengths is her ability to adapt her coaching communication style to that of her client. She is also able to discern the critical elements in a scenario, even when they may not be obvious to her client.  Many clients may not be ready to confront a difficult situation or face a problem. Marie has a talent for peeling back the layers through questions until the solution becomes clear to the client. She is calm and stable yet enthusiastic and curious – all very valuable qualities in a business strategist".

Her prior experience at Fortune 500 companies includes financial services, corporate administration, marketing, management and recruiting.
