The titles of Margie’s bestselling books reflect her passion for helping people make braver decisions and lead bigger lives.
Margie’s had to find her courage many times since growing up the big sister of seven on a dairy farm in rural Australia. Personal struggles, family tragedies, an armed robbery, having four children in five years – all have taught her valuable lessons on embracing change, building resilience and the power of purpose.
Today Margie draws on her background in Fortune 500 business, coaching and psychology to equip people with the mindset and strategies to lead themselves and others to achieve stronger outcomes. Her diverse client list includes NASA, Accenture, Deloitte, British Telecom, Johnson & Johnson, Australian Institute of Sport, Australian Federal Police, Facebook, Mars, Shell, Microsoft, Oracle, and the United Nations Foundation.
Margie’s insights have also been shaped by her work and interviews with leaders and luminaries such as Sir Richard Branson, former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, film producer Oliver Stone and hotelier Bill Marriott.
An acclaimed keynote speaker and guest lecturer at Columbia and Georgetown Universities, Margie is a sought-after commentator with leading media including the Wall Street Journal, Sky News, CNN, Fox News, Today Show, Al Jazeera. Her Forbes ‘Courage Works’ column has been read by millions.
In 2015 Margie was appointed Australia’s first Ambassador for Women in Global Business and made a Women’s Economic Forum honouree.
When she’s not juggling (and occasionally dropping) the many balls of empowering stronger leadership around the world raising her four teenage children (her proudest achievement), she enjoys planning adventures with them and her husband Andrew. Most recently, summiting Mt Kilimanjaro.
