-Ernst & Young
At the 2012 REINSW Women in Real Estate conference Marie Warrell joined the lineup of sensational speakers and contributed to a day which will be remembered by all who attended. Margie's presentation started the day off, setting the scene of empowerment, motivation, reflection and inspiration. Her engaging style, presence and unique ability to be down to earth had the audience hanging off her words and, challenging their own thoughts as she spoke of what many of us think of, yet dared not to say out loud. With this, Margie gave us the gift of so many 'take-aways' to reflect upon. Wow, what a thought provoking, polished and professional presenter is Margie - a presenter I would recommend for any conference.

I am already applying her tips!

Margie is the best speaker we've ever had at our annual conference. Highly engaging, relevant and practical, she left attendees with clear actionable steps they could take to be brave and succeed. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Margie sets herself apart with a powerful and inspiring message, paired with her energetic, down-to-earth, and disarming delivery. Inviting her to speak here at the United Nations Foundation helped me bolster my personal vision for a candid, collaborative, and forward-leaning workplace. Margie reminds us about the hidden costs of inaction while offering a refreshing and realistic perspective on how we can challenge ourselves and others to be more courageous, take more risks, and find more success. Feedback from her program was overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic. We would welcome her back any time!
