Marie-Claire you promised us a firehose attack and you succeeded. I thought it was a fabulous presentation. It was wide-reaching, insightful and from all the scribbling that was going on, some really useful stuff for participants. Massive value for us to drink that information in because it improves us not just as leaders, but as leaders in a more holistic way and stimulating our minds to give information to really take home.
Marie-Claire spoke at Associations Forum's popular CEO & Chair Symposium in February 2020 in Adelaide. Her session was interactive and gave practical advice. She encouraged interaction between the delegates while going through the steps for fostering a high trust senior leadership team. We appreciated Marie-Claire's involvement and subsequent interaction with the delegates rather than zooming away:)

Our members asked numerous questions and have given strong feedback describing the session as interesting, valuable and insightful. I would highly recommend Marie-Claire’s workshops and content.”
"Great chairperson and facilitator. Marie-Claire was able to think quickly and navigate some interesting challenges regarding keeping the pace moving and asking questions when no one else did, and steering the conversation when necessary. There were great insights between presentations and we were kept on track for timing."
“ALPMA has engaged Marie-Claire for two separate webinars on building trust within remote teams and during a pandemic. Leadership, consistent communication and clear expectations all lead to increased trust which Marie-Claire explains effortlessly. Marie-Claire is an excellent presenter who is very knowledgable and able to convey complex information with ease and simplicity. Delivering content in an online environment, to an unseen audience, can be daunting but Marie-Claire presented a fabulous, well rounded and structured session that hit the brief.”
