Marie has worked as a Performance Specialist in Leadership and Team development for global brands, high growth new companies, resource restricted start-ups and commercially reticent creative and technology businesses. She enjoys the challenge of working with complex teams including turnaround, ramp-up and start-up programmes. Marie is also a coach in the area of impact and influence, helping individuals to uncover and unravel their personal motivations and story and bring them to life!
Marie began her career as a management consultant in Eastern Europe during a time of sweeping social and economic change. Inspired by the outlook and resilience of the people she encountered she returned home to the UK in 1996 to qualify as a Chartered Psychologist. She has worked with clients across many cultures and business sectors since then, assisting with business improvement.
As part of her own professional development Marie invests in ‘side projects’ focussed on exploring innovation, creativity and the challenges of tomorrow! For example, she is a curator and producer of a number of international events and conferences, helping to scout for and coach undiscovered talent as well as connecting to those whose insight and ideas are already changing our world. In addition Marie is the chief learning designer at www.futurecurious.com an organisation dedicated to encouraging educators and businesses to take a glimpse into the future and shape their world accordingly.
Marie now lives in Liverpool, Northern England and in her spare time enjoys backpacking, collaborative art projects and all things statistical!
