“I was lucky enough to meet and be coached by Maria Franzoni quite early in my move from team building to speaking. I think she saved me 5 to 10 years of expensive trial and error.”
If you want to be more bookable and charge higher fees you’ve come to the right place. My name is Maria Franzoni – welcome to Speaking Business Academy.
“I’ve worked with Maria for many years. Indeed, she was my first agent – and I’ve continued to work with her ever since. During these years, I’ve given hundreds of talks, three MainStage TED talks, and more. So much of who I am today as a speaker is because she was and continues to be in my life. Having a great idea doesn’t make a great speaker. Nothing frustrates me more than someone who knows something that others also need to know, but who cannot communicate it. Maria cares about the importance of communicating great ideas with great impact. What’s more, she cares about her speakers. Her experience is vast and her generosity even more so.” Beau Lotto, Professor of Neuroscience
“Mary is quite simply one of the best coaches I’ve had the privilege of working with. I was trying to break down what Mary does brilliantly and what she does differently. So brilliant: she is passionate, she is full of amazing insights and techniques developed from many years in the business, she’s not afraid to tell you that inconvenient truth. Different? The big one for me is love. It sounds corny but its the truth. While working with Mary you feel as if you are the most important person in the world to Mary at the moment. This in itself is a gift. Then there is the fact she goes the extra mile and then some. Finally, and this she does with passion, she never gives up on you. In the end my sessions with Mary have been life and career changing.” Jack Milner Comedy Director, Producer & Writer
