Marianne Abib-Pech Leadership Speaker
Through her keynote leadership speeches, Marianne wants to inspire and energize leaders and anyone looking to become leaders.
Leaders? How would you define a leader in such a volatile and fast-changing world? Are leaders born or made? Can anyone become a leader?
Through her talks, Marianne addresses these key questions and re-invents leadership.
Leadership is a journey, a never-ending and extremely humbling journey. Leadership is a journey that involves a process – working from the inside to the outside, from oneself to the world.
Leaders are catalysts for people and ideas. They are the products of their environments and dreams. They are creators of change for themselves and for the world, but more profoundly, they are observers of the world and aim to make it better and… greater.
Through her keynotes, Marianne wants to inspire and energize anyone looking to become the leader of their organisation, business, and lives.
Marianne’s keynote topics include, but are not limited to:
Vision, Courage, Self-Awareness, Inspiration, Knowing your people, Standard settings and accountability are key pillars of transformational leadership.
