Margie Warrell

Find Your Courage. Stop Playing Safe. Brave. Make Your Mark. The titles of Margie’s books reflect her passion for helping people make braver decisions and lead bigger lives. Margie’s had to find her courage many times since growing up as the big sister of seven on a dairy farm in rural Australia. Personal struggles, family tragedies, an armed robbery, backpacking solo around the world, four children in five years: all have taught her valuable lessons on growing resilience, embracing change and building courage. Today Margie draws on her background in Fortune 500 business, coaching and psychology to arm people with the mindset, strategies and skills essential to achieving stronger outcomes for themselves and others. Her clients include NASA, Accenture, UN Foundation, Facebook, Marriott and Australian Institute of Sport.
