“Marilyn is an amazing trainer, teacher and coach I am now proud to call friend! I first met Marilyn at an executive leadership seminar. I just loved her presentation materials and overall approach so much that I was able to engage her for one-on-one leadership coaching. Since I was fairly young and new in the management world, Marilyn was committed to providing me with opportunities that challenged my skills. She was very organized and prepared but most importantly held me accountable. Our time together was a wonderful experience; I value her support and patience and I truly believe Marilyn’s coaching sessions are a large part of what has made me the leader I am today.” Carrie Reaume
