Keynotes & Workshops That Move Ideas Into Action
Get unstuck. Drive new results.
Hi, I'm Mary.
I work with organizations whose competitive advantage is a robust idea pipeline and strong, diverse teams. We’re a great fit if the following is true:
You need to create solutions to complex problems...fast!
You have talented teams made up of diverse people who need to bond authentically and collaborate effectively.
You want to leverage the full knowledge and contribution of every team member to explore and experiment.
Here’s where the struggle comes in:
Teams full of brilliant thinkers fail to transform ideas into solutions because they lack the skills to effectively communicate, collaborate, and connect.
It’s been over 20 years since I first began my science career at NASA, spending the last fourteen as STEM faculty for San Jose State University. As a lecturing scientist with specializations in communication, biology, & psychology, I’ve personally helped over 20,000 people translate their brilliance into actionable ideas and innovative solutions.
The breakthroughs happen by mixing strategic play and learning hacks so your team members can find solutions faster and communicate them more effectively.
