Speaking Business podcast


Each week Maria Franzoni, Speaker Bureau Director, invites one of her speakers to talk about their life, work, passions and leisure so that you can get to know the person who is the speaker behind the mic.

Mar 23, 2021

My guest today is a fashion industry and retail expert having designed for Alexander McQueen, Mulberry, M&S and Topshop. Her high flying, high pressure career, of global travel, enormous responsibility, crazy deadlines, mixing with high profile people, appeared glamorous and successful on the outside. However, underneath she was crumbling. She maxed out and she burnt out. 

Today she’s going to share her story of burnout and recovery and how she’s now helping businesses and people to excel without burnout.

Please welcome my guest, Marie Oakes. 

Bio 

Marie Oakes is a fashion industry and retail expert having designed for Alexander McQueen, Mulberry, and M&S. Her high flying, high pressure career, of global travel, enormous responsibility, crazy deadlines, mixing with high profile people, appeared glamorous and successful on the outside. However, underneath she was crumbling. She maxed out and burned out.

She went on a journey of self-recovery and learnt how to rewire her brain, regain control of her life and was able to reconnect with her true self. As part of that process, she undertook extensive research into resilience and positive psychology and developed her wellbeing, self-care and resilience toolkit which she now uses to help leaders and teams excel without burning out, and live and work in a more sustainable way.

Her resilience toolkit is brilliant in that it helps people to stop burn out from starting in the first place, and fully recover from it if the damage has already been done.

As an acclaimed wellbeing specialist, resiliency coach, and leadership burn out expert, Marie’s highly motivational, interactive talks and masterclasses deliver like no other. Human Sustainability is her speciality and drawing upon extensive research and personal experience, Marie arms you with life-changing tools empowering you to achieve and sustain the results you need to adopt change and flourish in all that you do.

Marie’s talks and masterclasses have been enjoyed and valued by senior leaders through to teams across different industries from fashion to government, to healthcare and retail. These companies and organisations have trusted Marie to inspire their people to achieve more: Hyve Group plc, NHS, and Hackney Council.
