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 jump-start 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.
