Keynote Speaker | Author | Women’s Leadership Expert
Maureen’s life is about fanning the flames of potential and unleashing the leadership capabilities in women and organizations – and that’s what her audiences learn how to do, too!
When she was in the 2nd grade, Maureen ran for class president. Why? Because the only other candidates were boys, and that just didn’t seem right to her. She ran under the slogan ‘Vote for Maureen and you’ve got your queen’ (they were learning about rhyming)…and she won. Mo has never looked back and has always sought to bring balance to leadership teams and organizations so that they can drive better business results. She’s the Founder of The Moxie Exchange Movement, which is a peer advisory and mentoring platform for companies who want to develop, promote and retain women.
Cattle Prod & Cheerleader
One of Maureen’s CEO clients once told her that working with her “is like having a cattle prod at my back and a cheerleader at my side.” That about sums up Mo’s approach – practical and no-nonsense dance the tango with encouraging and fun. She brings that approach to her engagements, too. Participants leave with useful tools and ideas from her years of experience and the confidence that they really can make great things happen.
Business & Leadership Maven
Maureen is a life-long enthusiast of leadership, business and success. The old adage ‘those who cannot do teach’ is a load of bunk. Mo has done both. She’s been an advisor and executive coach to CEOs of the nation’s fastest growing companies and been in the trenches, holding leadership positions in several large corporations and as the founder 5 successful businesses (and counting!) of her own. She’s spent over 20 years helping organizations grow by combining smart strategy with amazing talent. She holds a Masters in Organizational Development, is a graduate of Corporate Coach U and reads anything she can get her hands on about business and leadership.
Maureen knows what it takes to drive growth in teams and organizations and brings a bias for action and pushing the status quo to her work. Her 5-book series Rock Your Moxie: Power Moves for Women Leading the Way is formatted into bite-sized, actionable chunks and takes on the head-trash that stops women from moving forward in their careers. Her international podcast and online workshop series always wraps up with participants determining what action they’re going to take in the next 24 hours. Mo has lived her life as a doer and risk-taker, too. She’s ridden camels in the Sahara desert, jumped in the Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye and completed two 36-hour ultra team runs. She brings those experiences and approach to her audiences, getting them to think big, take action and move the dial on driving results for themselves and their teams.
