Virtual Events 

Interested in booking me as a virtual speaker or guest trainer for your next event? 

LinkedIn, Personal Branding, Keeping it Human (Oh My!)

My favorite part of speaking at events is when people say, “WOW, I took so many notes…that was fun!” or “I’ve attended 4-5 LinkedIn trainings and this by far was the best.” Yup, true story.

If you have an audience of service-based business owners,  coaches, consultants, and copywriters, I speak about topics like:

  • How to Instantly Level Up Your Brand on LinkedIn and Attract Clients 
  • The Three Rs Formula: How to Build Your Audience on LinkedIn
  • How to Build a Halo of Celebrity and Credibility on LinkedIn
  • The 4 Cs to Brand Clarity: How to Build Your Personal Brand Like a Human

What People Are Saying About Marietta…

Marietta is a powerhouse speaker. I invited her to present at my Shrimp Club retreat because I know she’s a genius when it comes to all things LinkedIn and personal branding. She easily changed the minds of a group of (mostly) LinkedIn-phobes, persuading even the most skeptical that it’s THE place to be. Her tangible, actionable advice got the audience hungry for more — literally asking for another workshop on the spot.

Marietta’s energy is electric even via Zoom and her humor and professional delivery were refreshing. Any chance to get Marietta in front of your audience is worth the price of admission!

~Laura Belgray, Founder of Talking Shrimp

Marietta’s LinkedIn workshop was one of our favorite educational programs we did for our team all year! Not only is she warm and approachable, but she demystifies LinkedIn and makes utilizing all its parts easy and fun. She graciously answered our many questions and made our team feel excited about a platform that previously made them anxious. We will definitely be bringing her back!

“I hired Marietta to teach her Personal Branding on LinkedIn workshop for my Write Like a MOFO community. Marietta delivers massive value and brings her whole mind and heart to her teaching. The session was engaging, inspiring, practical, and funny! Marietta has a great sense of humor and brings it to her work in a delightful way. It was such a popular workshop with members and feedback started rolling in right after we finished — they loved it!”

~ Jacqueline Fisch, Intuitive Writer and Coach

“Marietta provided a phenomenal Personal Branding on LinkedIn training for my group coaching participants. It was value-packed with actionable strategies we were all busting at the seams to go implement. She over-delivered, and I can’t wait to bring Marietta in for more training sessions to help my clients continue to up-level their brands and LinkedIn strategies.”

~Sharell Weeams, Business Growth Strategist, Marketing Coach

“Marietta was a guest LinkedIn expert for my private group of personal brand photographers and her training was, to say the least, AMAZING! My group continues to rave about how fabulous she was and the value that they got from her training. Marietta is an energetic presenter, warm and friendly, and explains things in a way that’s easy to understand even if you’re a LinkedIn newbie like many of the artists in my group were.  She shared actionable tips that the photographers could immediately implement so they could optimize their Linkedin profiles and start booking clients!”

Heidi Hapanowicz, Personal Branding Photographer and Business Coach 

“I’ve got to tell you I’ve been through 3-4 trainings for LinkedIn and this was BY FAR the best one!”
