Margie is passionate about people and their work! She helps leaders and their teams perform, even during times of stress.
Margie lost her passion for her work 15 years ago and was experiencing a lot of stress. She had just come out a 5-year journey of many failed IVF attempts which negatively impacted her marriage and work. She decided to change all of that. She left her executive role and marriage, and entered into an undergrad in Psychology, never thinking she would even get past the first semester.
Margie not only got through the first semester, she graduated, was accepted into an Honours program and received a Distinction for her Thesis on Leadership Performance and Wellbeing.
During her presentations, she openly shares her story, and that following her divorce, a financial tsunami, 3000 practice hours (mostly unpaid), and losing her own father to mental health challenges, she achieved a goal she never thought possible, as a registered Psychologist. Margie found her passion which is helping leaders and leadership teams reach their full potential. She is authentic, engaging and funny.
Margie has been coaching and consulting to organisations for over 25 years. This includes being an owner and partner in two businesses as well as leading and coaching teams in executive recruitment and search firms. Previously she had a ten-year career in IT, which included working in Silicon Valley at the age of 19. And she is also a trained actor!
Margie’s approach offers an entertaining while commercial and psychological lens for people striving to reach their potential. Her research, professional experience and own life experience is proving to help leaders and their teams how to perform during times of stress, resulting in resilient, happier and high-performing organisations.
