Marie is an award-winning corporate communication and engagement strategist who leads our Queensland office.
She is someone who embraces change, and intuitively understands how to take other people on the journey. On that basis, it’s fitting that Marie has worked as a journalist, established one of the first integrated communication and design studios in Western Australia (long before content marketing was mainstream) and has excellent business acumen, winning acclaim for her corporate communications and change management strategies.
Her experience is broad, encompassing industries such as infrastructure (property, water, roads, waste); resources (mining, oil and gas); information technology (software, GIS, ehealth); and community development (health, sustainability, justice, education).
Marie doesn’t shy away from issues – but she never loses her infectious laugh, regardless of how tough things get.
