"I had a one to one strategy session with Maria - it was exactly what I needed and more. Having the opportunity to explore challenges from an external viewpoint was invaluable and helped me to move forwards when my own emotional connection was getting in the way - I'm excited to get on with putting my plan into action."

"I have 4 pages of A4 notes from my mentoring session with Maria yesterday, with ‘aha’ moments galore. Many were things I knew already but hadn’t really acted on as a professional speaker and others were the sort of insights into the speaking business that would take years (and no doubt lots of costly mistakes) to find out. Thank you Maria!"  Penny Pullan, Virtual & Hybrid Leadership Expert
