Annemarie is one of the most engaging speakers I’ve had the pleasure of hosting on my events.Not only does she have a naturally soothing voice and demeanor, she really seems to understand the genuine struggles of a typical small business owner. She’s one of those presenters you simply can’t help but fall in love with.

Her talks are packed full with useful, immediately actionable information and she knows how to deliver it in a way that any entrepreneur can absorb. Her anecdotes and examples are spot-on, making it easy for listeners to see themselves in her stories.In addition to being an excellent trainer, Annemarie is also an organized, punctual partner.

“I was blown away by the amount of information shared…”

Annemarie was a speaker on our ‘Startup Small, Dream Big, Grow Fast’ Telesummit for women entrepreneurs.  I was blown away by the amount of information that was shared.

I don’t know about the listeners, but I was furiously scribbling down notes as she was talking.

Annemarie has a nature and voice that makes you feel at home and comfortable with her straight away.

You can tell her business knowledge comes from years of practice and reflection which she shares openly in a way that both the novice and seasoned business owner can benefit from listening to.
