YOUR STORY AND MESSAGE SHOULD SET YOU APART
Today's consumers and audiences are bombarded with thousands of marketing messages every single day. You and your company's story are the most powerful tool at your disposal—if you can communicate the story clearly, succinctly, and authentically. We help you ...
 
  • Organize your thoughts and your ideas
  • Discover your authentic voice and presentation style
  • Step in front of any audience, large or small, with confidence
  •  Connect in five minutes or five hours. Face to face or virtually, across the world
  •  Inspire Action and build life-long fans and advocates

 

Three years ago I was overwhelmed at the prospect of communicating our organization's vision to perspective partners. Maria reshaped how I communicate our vision, giving me laser focus and needed confidence. Her coaching has resulted in tens of thousands of dollars in new donations, the formation of key strategic partnerships, and an appearance on the Tedx stage to further my mission to change young lives with the power of music.  Naturally, I've used my new persuasive skills to get Maria to join our board.   — Brandon Steppe, The David's Harp Foundation.

MEETINGS SHOULD LEAD TO TANGIBLE RESULTS
37 billion dollars are wasted every year in unnecessary or unproductive meetings.   Why? Most people don't know how to design or facilitate engaging, powerful meeting experiences that yield creative solutions, actionable next steps, or the tangilbe results your business needs.  

That number is going up with the popularity of virtual meetings. We can help you stop the bleeding.
 
  • Planning and Designing a powerful meeting experience from beginning to end
  • Facilitating meetings that yield the results you want
  • Connecting the Dots. Tying Loose Ends. Everyone knows what must happen next. 

 

Best meeting we've ever had... I didn't believe an eight-hour meeting could keep a room full of technical minds engaged. I was pleasently surprised. Having an expert facilitator does make a difference. The meeting brought lots of great ideas and gave everyone a voice. — Annonymous Participant Feedback, Hydrologic Research Center

EVENTS SHOULD INSPIRE ACTION
After being in charge of finding speakers for hundreds of events, from small corporate training workshops to large, multi-day conferences, we know that an event’s success depends on great planning, execution and speakers who connect with the audience and deliver a compelling message that energizes and inspires action.  

That's our goal every time we help plan and design and event... as well as when Maria Keckler speaks for your small, national, or international group.

We want to blow the doors off your next event, so contact us to customize an event or presentation to leave the audience inspired with actionable take-aways. 

 

Your sessions seem to have been the favorites at the conference. I received so much positive feedback, more so than any other presentation. Here are some of the comments that I received...

“Maria Keckler’s presentations were my two favorite sessions. 
They were worth the price of the whole conference! 
 Please invite her to speak again!”

"Maria's presentation style and content were captivating!
