Ready to share your powerful message with the world?

Perhaps you’re wondering what it really takes to get consistent clients, amazing speaking opportunities or get featured in the media?

I get it. It can be so frustrating when you’re awesome at what you do, but no one knows about you (yet!).

If this sounds like you, I’ve got good news.

I’d like to formally introduce Impact and Influence, a 12-week Personal Brand Coaching program specifically designed for ambitious women ready to make their mark and blaze a trail.

The program is exactly what you need to build your personal brand to help position yourself as an expert, which in turn will support your business growth in profit and reputation.

These are the techniques I’ve used in my decade long international PR career to help clients become industry-famous, get booked for high-profile speaking engagements, work with brands and get featured in Forbes, BBC and so many more top tier media outlets.

Outlined below is a road map for the program detailing what will be covered on A module by module basis. Working together, we’ll make magic happen!

As a result of proactively building your personal brand, you’ll have increased:


You can rest assured that you’re not leaving your destiny in anyone else’s hands as you will have taken all the steps to secure your business (and brand!) to put your best foot forward.


Once you know how to pitch yourself to potential clients, media and brands, in a way that leaves them excited to work with you, the world truly is your oyster.


A strong personal brand will not only skyrocket your reputation, you’ll be seen as a thought leader in your niche

Amazing, right? But maybe you’re not there just yet. Maybe you’re currently feeling like everyone else in your industry is soaring ahead and has lots of amazing opportunities being handed to them.

Many of the women approach me to help them, because they’re:


You know you’re destined for something great, but you lack the clarity and guidance to drill down on your message


Your business is amazing but because no-one knows about you, you’re worried about where your next sale will come from.


You’re tired of trying to figure it all out alone. You’d much rather stick to working in your zone of genius rather than stretching past your skills, wasting your precious time on stuff you know nothing about


One thing I know for sure, is that there is so much out there for you. The path to giving your confidence a boost, creating more opportunities and building a solid reputation in your industry are closer than you think.


  • 1) A step-by-step system that will guide you through how to go from unknown to known in your industry
  • 2) A no BS guide, from someone who has been there, done that

Plus, a supportive tribe of like-minded women on the same mission as you. Let’s face it entrepreneurship can be a lonely ride unless you’re around others who get it.

Here’s ONE key thing I’ve learned throughout my decade long international PR career:

“Your value does decrease based upon someone’s inability to see your worth.”

Contrary to popular belief. This is true in business.

Think of any person you know with a strong personal brand, their value add is clear to see. Oprah, the person in your industry with all the online mentions, even your fave restaurant!

If someone doesn’t see your worth, guess what?

They’ll shop around. They won’t trust you can help them and they definitely will not buy from you.

“No-one cares about how much value you place on yourself, they care how much value they recognize,” Daniel Priestley.

The good news is, that you have the power to demonstrate your value. Sure you can spend your time posting on social media all day – but they won’t yield the results you need.

You catapult your success by constructing a powerful pitch, creating amazing content that wows your audience, being featured in the media, speaking on stages and through strategic partnerships.

From doing these things, your impact and influence will be clear to see.

Hey I’m Marielle.

I underestimated just how important my personal brand would be, when I started my business in 2016.

Sure, I’d spent the last decade working at global companies supporting CEOs to get publicity, but when it came to promoting myself, it’s not something I’d initially gave much thought to. I was used to being behind the scenes.

I thought it was enough just to have a nice website and a few business cards…lol.

Then I invested in a mentor who helped me get my act together.

I began to take building my reputation seriously as an entrepreneur.

Up until that point, I used to question: Why do I need to put myself out there? I’m an introvert, I don’t want to be seen.

In the short space of time that I began producing content, something magical started to happen. I started getting booked for speaking gigs and getting featured in the media.

People would send messages online telling me they had read my articles. Yale University, (yes, the Ivy League school) approached me after reading one of my articles online and invited me to speak at their Women’s Conference!

I’ve since got myself and my clients featured in top magazines like Forbes, the BBC, Black Enterprise and The Huffington Post.

I help my clients drill down on who they are at their core, to really show the impact they make.

The best bit is, I’m doing what I love every single day: Working with amazing women globally to help them share powerful messages with the world.


Put simply, I get results.

Sure there are a thousand of publicists out there, but most don’t combine the personal brand and business development element which must come first.

Plus, I infuse my decade-long international expertise gained working in London and New York at some of the largest companies in the world, with my entrepreneurial expertise.

Being a Brit who moved to the bright lights of New York City where I knew no-one, I know exactly what it takes to build a brand from the ground up.

I wrote my first book, The Personal Brand Bible for Ambitious Women in 2017 and have already had amazing press and speaking opportunities presented to me as a result.

So you’re in good hands!
