Maria has a depth of knowledge across marketing, branding and sales that is rare. Coupled with her highly focused and energetic approach, Maria teaches rather than instructs on how to solve problems while maintaining the business’ strategic objectives. Maria brings immediate clarity to issues and is an excellent communicator. I would highly recommend others to work with Maria and I look forward to working with her into the future.

Maria’s Story

I graduated from Trinity College, Dublin, with a BSc in Pharmacy. After owning and managing three successful retail chemists, I diversified and ran a wholesale and distribution business, working with leading global brands, including OPI, St. Tropez, Yes to Carrots, Fruit of the Earth, Oilily, Smashbox Cosmetics, Sanctuary Spa and Neal’s Yard Remedies. I also founded a makeup and skincare training academy, an aromatherapy retail outlet and a successful online beauty sales website.

The strategies I teach aren’t just abstract concepts. I’ve been there. I have first-hand experience in all aspects of running a successful business, from manufacturing to market research, from sales to branding.

I know how great it feels to run a business when things are going well. And I know how hard it can be when times are tough.

Since becoming an executive coach and business mentor in 2013. I’ve worked with companies in sectors as diverse as medicine and hospitality; finance and beauty.

Whether you need advice on logistics, accounts, cashflow or marketing – I can help.

Whatever domain you work in, my strategies can help you achieve your personal and professional goals – fast. I help leaders and business owners get results in all aspects of their personal and professional lives. Whether you want to overhaul your communications and marketing; or learn new resource management and problem-solving skills; I’ll show you how to achieve better results and manage your time more effectively, guaranteeing you less stress and greater satisfaction.

While I’m happy to admit to being a driven, results-oriented person, I’m also friendly and approachable. I take a real interest in my clients’ lives and businesses. I don’t just give a few classes, and then disappear; I stick around to see the results. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing how my clients’ lives are transformed by the methods I teach them.
