What Maree's Clients Have To Say

We approached Maree Harris of People Empowered to assist us with our Professional Development program. Maree was fantastic in working with us to develop a ‘soft skills’ program and was more than willing to customise sessions to meet our needs. She made sure she understood the profession and the challenges for developing less-technical aspects of the CPA’s role in a busy workplace. Her delivery style is very engaging and she uses examples that we can all relate to in our own working lives to demonstrate her point. Maree’s sessions have been a welcome addition to our Professional Development calendar!

I have been to a few ‘Time Management’ workshops prior to Maree’s presentation. Utilising reference to associated research and a practical approach to professional aptitude, Maree’s presentation offered me an enormous opportunity to refocus my personal conduct and share practical tips with colleagues. I can confidently recommend Maree as a highly competent presenter on this important topic.

In my last three positions, spanning nearly twenty years, I have found Maree to be an invaluable source of support and advice. She has long been exceptionally adept at sorting out knotty personal and interpersonal issues for staff on an individual basis. The accumulation of her knowledge and experience in this field is just one of the reasons for her capability as an expert advisor at an organisational level.

CEO, UFO Dispensaries, Ballarat

I am a firm believer that people come into your life when you need them most. Dr Maree Harris Ph.D, Australia’s leading soft skills specialist, has had an enormous influence on my life. At a time when I really needed some outside input, Maree launched a coaching group and selected people to participate in a pilot program. She took five people dissatisfied with their current career paths who were at their wits’ end. After much soul searching, brainstorming and guidance from each other, we left the program with direction in our lives and, more importantly, with a clear strategy. Maree has had an amazing influence on my career and life in general. Most immediately, however, after the program, I knew my days in accounting were over. I tentatively moved into marketing, initially helping accountancy firms with their marketing. Now I have a very successful business – B Well Connected -  where I assist a wide range of business owners to grow, expand or re-invent their businesses.
