CEO, Founder

"Marian shared her subject matter expertise on Corporate Partnership Development and Cause Marketing at a Planning Symposium. Her presentation was phenomenal. Not only did she help our team better understand the opportunities we could be cultivating, but she inspired everyone to think bigger in terms of what is possible when creating win/win/win strategies."
