Forbes.com just named her latest book as one of the top leadership books in 2019 for new managers. After hearing Marilyn do her opening keynote, her breakout sessions are filled to capacity. One client has nick-named her “SRO” for “Standing Room Only” as her sessions always fill up fast.

Marilyn is a consummate pro. She has been on every stage imaginable even keynoting conferences where they’ve never had a female keynote speaker in the history of their association.

Front-Row Leadership; How top performers never settle for balcony seats

We all know that too many people settle for mediocrity in life. But, have you ever considered how settling for mediaocrity might effect your organization and your results? Everybody deserves a front-row seat in life and that’s where amazing things happen. Through moving stories and a lifetime of trial and error – and more importantly trial and success, I will arm your group with the strategies and actionable information it takes to increase employee engagement, improve morale, and inspire attendees to own the overall success of your organization.

Communicating For Results; From Conflict to Cooperation

This high content program helps people have the tools to reduce unnecessary conflict in the workplace. With specific tactics and verbiage to handle difficult people, this program has been effective in helping people with work-related issues as well as personal communication issues. Most people do not like conflict or confrontation but with these strategies, it gets easier to handle both. Finally, a fun look at how to deal with difficult people with practical application immediately following the workshop!

Which V are You? Managing Change Like a Volunteer Instead of a Victim or Vacationer

If your organization isn’t going through some type of change now, it means one of two things: You have already gone through a major change, or you are about to! When people are asked to change; they become a Victim, a Vacationer or a Volunteer. Obviously if they choose to be a Victim or Vacationer, the chances of the change being successful are severely hampered. You will learn the effects of each V, and what outcome it can have on your team. This program is an interactive workshop, helping you move towards the mindset of a volunteer: resourceful, opportunistic, positive, helpful, open-minded and vision oriented. Sounds better than being bitter, resentful, helpless and sabotaging! Prior to this workshop, plan on supplying Marilyn with your current vision – so the program can be about YOUR change. She will start with what the change means and what can be done to navigate the change more successfully

Prism Hospitality
"Thank you again for coming and speaking to the leaders of Prism! They really enjoyed it and on the last morning when we had to share our "ah ha" moments with everyone, at least half of the group quoted you and the points you made during your presentation; we all couldn't stop talking about how much we enjoyed your session! As a young meeting planner, I would have never thought to have a speaker come spend time with the group beforehand, but I'm so glad you were able to. I think it really gave you a chance to get to know us all (and hopefully feel the love we all have for each other) which then came through your speech and presentation to us. The Joshie stories were amazing, and we will be keeping those to add to our brag book. I'm also going to include you on an email about my very own Joshie experience that I had over the week. I can't wait for you to be able to read about what you inspired! Thank you again!”
