Marcia Francois was a pleasure to work with.
She is certainly organised and has great passion for what she does, which translates through her work with conviction and clarity. She is a great example of what she sets out to inspire in others.
Marcia was very flexible and able to adapt her work according to our exact needs and requirements.
She delivered what was briefed in by our client, Discovery, and we received great feedback from many of the guests who attended our event. She was required to do the same show in three different regions and was able to a deliver a sound and consistent talk throughout the country, despite the change of venues and audience sizes.
She is a very comfortable public speaker and has a knack of sharing valuable content in an intelligible manner.

I booked Marcia for our Women’s Day event at Standard Bank Card Division as a motivational speaker to speak to our ladies about empowering themselves in the workplace. Although this is such a broad topic with so many facets, she addressed the topic very well.
Marcia was well-prepared and provided great content, and she was well able to connect and relate to the ladies, both during the talk and also in mingling with the audience before and afterwards.
Thanks again, Marcia – it was great having you!”

Marcia, you did a phenomenal job in addressing our group of 120 people.
The group was filled with excitement because you inspired us with practical examples. They were captivated and listened attentively to all you had to say.
The feedback received afterward was excellent and people young and old left with a desire to do better and to improve in their lives. Thank you!

“Marcia’s talk about empowering women was most inspiring. I now believe that women can empower themselves no matter their circumstance and still maintain their uniqueness in whatever form.
Even though I don’t have a degree, Marcia made me feel as though I was still able to contribute to society by using my own gifts and talents, and still know that my contribution whether a wife, mother or worker is still admired.
Thank you, Marcia, for making me understand that the door of opportunity is always open and that the only limiting belief would be my own.”
I thoroughly enjoyed your talk at the meeting. You gave “Time Management” a new twist, and demonstrated the energy required to be successful.
