Survivor to THRIVER: 4 Principles to Thriving in Life and Business

Most people are operating in survivor mode both in their personal and professional life, but don't even realize it. In Marian's thought provoking and motivating signature talk, she weaves her near-death experience and life-changing transformation with the Four Principles of a Thriver: Consciousness, Collaboration, Community and Celebration. She has delivered this talk through a concise 15 minute TEDx talk as well as gone deeper into the topics and exercises through workshops and immersive retreats.

"Marian's authentic approach to sharing what it means to live a Thriver lifestyle is thought provoking and invigorating! Even though her programming is focused on women's' empowerment, and mental health & wellness, I can attest that I took away much from her presentation at our March 2019 leadership development event. I came away from the event with new approaches to relieving some of the stresses of day to day living and bringing better balance into my life. I know that many of our members are looking forward to learning more from Marian!"​.

Her gifts lie in shifting energy in a room, captivating people and making the subject matter accessible to many different types of people, and this was just what the conference needed.
