«You never achieve success unless you like what you are doing” is a quote that resonates strongly with Marianne. She thrives when working on the people side of business gaining energy from experiencing people and organizations develop and reach goals. In her consulting work she utilizes a combination of her business and leadership experience, scientifically proven methods with motivating and engaging facilitation. “It is important to create ownership in any change process if we are to get results” Marianne says. “The way to do this is through involvement, engagement and firsthand experience” she continues. Her interest human relations was clearly indicated through her education with a BSc degree in Management from Arizona and a Masters degree in International Relations from Sydney. She sees herself fortunate to have many years experience from multinational companies such as GE Capital and held roles in sales, leadership and HR giving her a solid base for her current role.
