Reach your full business potential with Business Presence.

Presentation Training

Business Presence offers highly personalized presentation training for executives and company spokespeople presenting internally or externally, on stage or in-meetings.


I’m a better communicator, and, as a result, a better professional.


The results of Marianne’s coaching reach off the screen and into the rest of my professional life. She coached into me a higher level of articulateness and clarity of conversation. This, I believe, now turns up in my live keynotes, training sessions, and even sales conversations.

Business Presence provides a range of services to enhance and develop your professional presence and performance. From on-camera prep to honing in your messaging, we can help. 


Marianne is a force of nature, who is made for this work. 

The results of our work have been completely tangible–within 6 months in the new role, I secured a promotion, pay rise, bonus and increased responsibility. I attribute this success largely to Marianne because she forced me to write down a promotion action plan during week two of the new job, which was the last thing on my mind at the time. Marianne then held me accountable to that plan. I intend to work with Marianne on and off for the rest of my career and I have no reservations in recommending her to anyone who values investing in themselves, no matter their life or career stage.

You helped instill not just good tactics and advice but also confidence.

My sincere thanks to Marianne and Marilyn for all your help preparing for my 60 Minutes interview. I couldn’t have done it without both of you.

Personal Branding

Personalized coaching to help executives and high potentials looking for career advancement to focus on developing their personal brand, from the outside in, and the inside out.


Business Presence made uplifting my image as easy as conceivably possible.

The result was a triumph. I got an outstanding new wardrobe, hairstyle, and pictures to use everywhere I needed them. Shortly after this process was complete my manager pulled me aside and complimented me on the way I had been showing up. In short order I received a promotion and significant raise.
