Read What Our Clients Say About Marie:

“Marie effectively coached our senior executive teams in the delivery of their business imperatives—and was invaluable not only when they were dealing with performance gaps, but also when new opportunities arose that required a new level of thinking, leadership and behavior to make them happen.”
—June Boyle
Group OD Director, British Telecom

“Marie’s ability to help executives and individual contributors uncover the unspoken issues within a welcoming, productive setting could be considered an art form. She is very talented and a master at enriching leaders to lead with integrity, collaboration and success.”
—Natalie Kloss
Director of Business Development, Vytek

“Marie worked with me from the beginning of the merger in Europe of two oil majors, one American and one British multinational. Our unit was responsible for supply trading and logistics operations within and across the countries of Europe. The new entity was challenged to establish safe, effective and efficient operations across Europe and the rationalization of two workforces within a novel organizational model, while reaping all the rewards of the merger. Despite differing corporate and national cultures, we had a blast developing a team that was hugely successful in addressing the immediate two-year challenges. Simultaneously, through coaching and leadership development, we enabled the team to invent and realize the best of aspirational futures for itself and the company.”
—Harry Rowson
Group VP, Supply and Distribution, British Petroleum


Perspective

“We as consultants can provide support, expertise and counsel—but it has to be their journey. Their people need to see them owning and driving it. I believe that if we get on the slippery slope of having the journey led by outside consultants, the effort is doomed to failure in the long run.”
—Marie Case
