I have worked with many professional speakers and found Marianne Renner to be an incredibly approachable and accommodating keynote. Marianne took time to meet IGFOA leadership in-person to truly understand their leadership challenges, roadblocks, and goals. She then customized her presentation to speak specifically to those points. Attendee responses were excellent, noting Marianne was “interesting, thought-provoking, and engaging.”
“Marianne was the keynote speaker at a leadership conference I attended. She spoke to the heart of each person in the audience. I looked around the room and noticed every eye was laser focused on each word she shared. Through her heartfelt personal story, she delivered insightful perspectives on how to handle the chaos and distractions in our work and lives.”
Marianne’s keynote absolutely resonated with our leaders. She energized us to focus on what matters most and helped us to believe that we can achieve the seemingly impossible!
“Marianne’s leadership training was the best professional workshop I’ve attended in my 20-year career. The content was so relevant to our job as educators, dealing with different personalities of students, adults and constant changes. Her authenticity and passion came through immediately. She provided us with tools to better communicate and navigate through the most difficult change.”
Marianne’s training really brought our team together and made everyone feel safe to share. She helped us gain insights about ourselves as well as how to better connect and share ideas with others. Her DISC behavior tool helped us communicate more effectively with colleagues who have diverse perspectives and personality traits. Not only that, she made it painless…and fun!
Marianne facilitated a vision planning workshop for our Foundation. She was absolutely wonderful to work with before, during, and after the event! Her energy is captivating, and she easily maintained the attention of everyone in the room. She is a wonderful storyteller -dynamic and charismatic.
“A true professional, Marianne both commands a room and engages with her audience on a personal level. We would definitely have her back again!”
