What they say about us

Our entire committee was engrossed by and appreciated Maria’s Banishing Burnout workshop. We usually thank our presenter and move on, but not with this presentation. It elicited such dialogue between our committee members! I had not heard such a response before. I know other CPAs and CPA advisers would enjoy and value this workshop because we got so much out of it.

Maria’s workshop for the CACPA/PFS on Banishing Burnout was an insightful and productive event. After speaking with a few of our members, she customized the program specifically for us and hit the mark. She also provided us with a variety of simple tools to help us go from feeling burned out to energized. I enjoyed her no-excuses coaching style.

Some speakers only give their set talk.  Maria’s approach is a lot more personal.  As the conference organizer, I really enjoyed her preparation; it showed me she really cared about making her workshop relevant to our group.  I liked the interaction Maria had with the advisors; she has been in the financial services industry and understands how it works and the pressures financial advisors feel.  Financial professionals need to think about planning and how they’re going to grow their business.  They want to have definite takeaways—and Maria provided these.  You can always hear something at a conference that sounds good at the time, but if you don’t really get on it right away, you lose it. Maria’s simple worksheets and lists were very valuable; they gave us a jumpstart after the conference.  Maria clearly said beforehand that she wouldn’t be a rah-rah motivational speaker—that that she was more practical—and that’s what I appreciated the most.

Some speakers only give their set talk, which participants could find relevant or not.  Maria’s approach is a lot more personal.  Maria interviewed some of the participants ahead of time to get a feel for the audience.  As an organizer, I really enjoyed her preparation; it showed me she really cared about giving her workshop and being relevant to the group.

Some coaches can be very philosophical, but Maria is very practical.  I would like to emphasize how practical she is.  Financial advisors need to think about planning and how they’re going to grow their business.  They want to have definite takeaways.  Maria’s simple worksheets and lists were very valuable; they gave us a jump-start after the conference.

Maria makes sure the group gets what it needs and does an excellent job with the prep work.  She was very orderly and timely.  She spent a lot of time in the conference and got a feel for what was happening with the group, rather than just being there for her talk and then leaving.  She really listened to the group and participated.
