About Me

The People Effect


After publishing our book, The People Effect: Find, Grow and Retain the Best of the Best, Joel Carver and I  dedicated ourselves to bringing our message to conferences around the world. Whether as a keynote speaker or a workshop leader, We help break through the boundaries that are limiting your team and get them ready to shape the future. Let us help you move from the world of yesterday's regrets to the world of tomorrow's victories.

A Philosophy for the Future


We are only limited by the things that we allow to limit us. The keys to success and productivity are already in our pocket. You just need someone to show you the lock and encourage you to open the door. 

Workshops and Keynotes


As a dynamic speaker and innovator, I will bring new life and connection to your next event. Contact me, and we can design a workshop or presentation that fits the needs that you have today.


Moving From Me To We



Successful leaders master the art of delegation and empowerment. Learn how you can shift your focus from personal achievements to team successes. Explore why it is hard to “let go” and strategies for moving forward. Discover how delegating tasks and authority to others builds a strong and effective team that is able to meet ongoing demands. Be the leader that creates more leaders!

Leading Change



In this session, you will learn the dynamics of change, including organizational change and how people react to it. This presentation addresses a limitation in traditional change management discussions. Specifically, the implication that if we can only ‘get through’ a change that life will then settle down and we can operate in a more stable environment. However, in reality, change never stops. Better understand the way that you and others react to change will help you to maintain a positive and productive environment. 

3 G Leadership



This keynote was given to a group of women in construction – women in traditionally male dominated work environments. Mary and her co-presenter provided insights on how they (mostly) successfully navigated their careers in a guy’s world; gave some ideas on how to take your career to the next level; shared war stories and advice on how to overcome obstacles; and inspired the audience that you can achieve whatever you set out to do.
