I've been in the industry for 20 years, am Masters qualified, have worked in 10 countries and had 13 overseas postings involving teaching, teacher training and curriculum development - for both online and offline learning materials. I've worked for schools, universities, vocational colleges, small businesses, and government departments, but the one thing that has never changed is my passion for learning, and helping professionals create quality learning experience that create real change in the lives of their learners.
Learning lights me up - and should be lighting your learners up too! To find out more about my background, click here. For a full set of qualifications and work experience details, click here. To hear what my clients say about working with me, click here.
Further down the page you'll see all the options for working with me. I'm also available for speaking services including interviews, guest speaker presentations, bespoke workshops, research and conference MC duties.
I’ve recently converted my 1 on 1 career change coaching program to a home study online course. Who would have thought creating an online course would be such a roller coaster? In the beginning I had some concerns and wanted to ensure that the online course participants get the best results possible. So, I had a 2 hour strategy session with Maria. I went from feeling excited but overwhelmed to clear and confident.
Maria gave me a structure to follow that minimised all the second guessing. Her marketing and content structure document helped me to realise that I had under-estimated the power of what I was creating. She helped me to identify deep and useful outcomes beyond what I had identified myself. Plus, Maria shared her wisdom of what to do and what not to do to ensure engagement.
I highly recommend Maria and know that the return on investment is guaranteed.
If you have a course that’s not reaching the mark, and feel like it could be so much better, but you're not sure where to start? You may benefit from a Course Review. Check out the details here.
For those who need a job done quickly, education and training advice, resource development work, training plan proposals or for those who want accountability and support to get the job done right, the first time, and don't want to go it alone, I have a few levels of support I can provide.
this Course + Session Bundle will give you instant access to the Welcome Gifts in my online Resource Library, which will help you pinpoint exactly the areas that I can help you with. Have a quick 15 minute chat first, do the courses you need, take the recommended actions, then book in for your session and get your questions answered. Simple!
You can always upgrade to the Content Creation packages below later, if you need more than a few hours help. Find out more about all courses available here.
I work in 8 hour bundles, because this type of work is different for every client. Some need a half day session straight up, others need fortnightly 2 hour meetings to review progress on their materials. We work to the beat of your drum, within the framework that suits your project. If this sounds like what you need, hit the Apply Now buttons, where you'll be redirected so you can book your first 15 minute complimentary session to see whether we'll be the right fit for each other.
I have some Sample Sessions below to show you what is possible in a 2 hour timeframe. Let me know which ones you're interested in when you book in for your chat, or we can create a bespoke session that will cater to exactly what you need.
*These packages are in $AU and involve meetings at the Perth office or online. GST will be applied for Australian Residents at the checkout.
**6 or 12 week packages can also be spread out over double the time period for a 10% surcharge.
Below are examples of what we can get achieved in a 2 hour session. All sessions will be tailored to your specific curriculum and resource development needs. Expand the boxes to reveal more details on what is included in each session.
Have great content but you don’t have a course yet, and you’re determined that your course won’t be just another forgettable course. Your course WILL make a difference.
Are you a creative, who has a huge amount of content and ideas but you're completely overwhelmed with how to put it all together?
Consider this your official permission to stop hitting your head against a brick wall and to finally let your content shine.
I get it - that sometimes passion just isn't enough, that you've got so many ideas, and are so keen to get it all out there but organising it into a cohesive whole and making sure it's an experience that will leave your clients raving about you, isn't as easy as it sounds. You've tried. You're overwhelmed, you're a bit frustrated, and you're losing love for the work you're passionate about - and that's just not right.
You're passionate, you're a professional, but you're not a systems freak and you need someone on board to show you the right way - the first time, instead of blundering around in the dark trying to do it yourself. You love your content, and you just want it to WORK. You need to employ a brain that can do all that side of things for you, or at least show you how to do it so you're not wasting time, money and energy on something that is simply not in your zone of genius.
I get it. I've been there. I'm running a small business. You can't do everything yourself, but you CAN employ people who are much better than you at the things you can't stand doing. Right?
In the Sample Sessions section below, you'll find detailed explanations of what we can get achieved in a 2 hour session - but in short, here's an overview.
--hand all the organising and systemising over to someone who (nerd alert!) loves doing that stuff and know that it's going to come back as a cohesive learning experience that produces raving clients.
--stop stressing out about what you should be doing next and start focusing on creating awesome content (which you're best at doing anyway).
--start falling back in love with what you do - the content, how it can change lives, and getting that message out there to the world.
Since my mission is for every training program to be made more effective by using effective materials that really strike a chord with your learners, so that they’re engaged, motivated and ready to come back for more, my sessions are tailored to your specific needs.
Every client is different so we'll work out a program that is going to work for YOU - your timeframes, your budget, your commitment to nailing your course content - we'll work together to get it done efficiently, and right, the first time.
I don't believe in locking people into a 6 month package, with non negotiable appointment times, worth thousands of dollars.
Because I've had that done to me and you know what?
Sometimes you really do just need a few hours of help,
sometimes you need serious accountability, and
other times you need space and time to get stuff done - on your own terms.
That's why I have a range of packages to suit different learning styles, budgets, commitment levels, and deadlines.
Ten minutes on the phone with Maria was enough to convince me that I needed her help to get my course on financial independence out of my head and into the world in the form of a fabulous learning experience.
I've worked with her for over 24 hours now and she is far and away the best investment I have ever made in my business. She's THE expert for all things learning (including online courses) but she's also part business coach, part marketing copy expert, part personal cheerleader - and highly competent in all those areas and too many more areas to list. People like Maria are very rare in the online learning world. She is genuine, passionate, professional, a pleasure to work with and now I can't imagine working without her. When I'm ready to make my next round of training, Maria will be the first personal I consult.
Thank you Maria, I feel blessed to have met you and I'm excited about the real change we will be creating together for years to come.
I have spoken about the PURE GENIUS of Maria Doyle before ... but I am doing it again.
SERIOUSLY ... check her out if you are building your programs and courses. she is a NINJA at ensuring there are clear student outcomes and learning achieved.
I have spent the last 2 weeks practically every day writing content, brainstorming ideas, getting honest feedback wit her on Skype screen sharing. EPIC. This is an awesome program that is now AWESOME!!! ... and already sold to some major corporates.
If you nail your structure and your students learn and achieve what you desire ... they will be your biggest raving fans and promote you ...
PS. I don't profit or receive and monies for this ... am just a raving fan who has smashed out some incredible content and a maaaaajor project and Maria has been legendary at helping me upgrade. I have been training and speaking for years and she has seriously blown my mind with some of the tweaks and upgrades.
I am all about sharing the love and helping other people achieve outstanding results with awesome support and the right team.
Well, you get the best of both worlds. Not only do you get dedicated one on one time, to nail an Individual Project Plan (what you're going to achieve in the 6-10 weeks we'll be working together), you'll also get the opportunity to have your content reviewed, piloted, edited or completely outsourced for you - if you'd prefer not to DIY the entire process yourself!
There's a certain collective power however, a collective energy if you will, that is gathered when a group of people are working together on something - we all know how important it is to be supported when you're going out on a limb and nailing something you've been wanting to achieve for a long time.
It doesn't have to be hard, confusing and lonely - do it with a curriculum developer and teacher trainer who has 15 years experience creating learning experiences that change people's lives; whether it's a course, series of workshops, online or offline projects, I've worked with colleges, universities, passionate professionals and organisations. You don't have to make all the same mistakes they have - do it with someone who can help you navigate the unpredictable world that is quality content development, and come out celebrating a product that you KNOW is going to change lives!
Well, I call a spade a shovel and I'm not into fluffing around or telling you what you want to hear. I am good at listening though, and will help YOU create the experience YOU want - not what I THINK you should have. Your circus, your monkeys.
I focus on results, not deadlines, and know that life comes and goes and things don't always go to plan. Most importantly, meltdowns are fine, direction changes are welcomed, and my job is done when YOU'RE happy and confident to keep working on your own.
A personalised action plan for moving forward with your content and task planning and creation. No more confusion, overwhelm and stress regarding what to do next, or how to go about creating a learning experience that you KNOW is going to change lives.
A mentor who cares - Creating Quality Learning Experiences, and helping others OUT of their overwhelm and into a calm, organised, RELIEVED headspace, is what I LOVE doing.
A systems freak - let me help YOU work out your plan for moving forward effectively, efficiently and without the head*ck that curriculum and resource development can be!
A personal cheer-squad - I know - this content development stuff can be hard yakka - but I celebrate every win that you have - and will be cheering you on from the sidelines - support, encouragement, you name it - when you're celebrating, I'm celebrating! That's why I do what I do!
It takes you through the myriad of different things you need to consider BEFORE you start creating content, so you save yourself time, energy and effort doing things the right way, the first time.
It's just one of many resources I've got for clients like you, in The Libray; which is packed full of lessons, tutorials, worksheets and templates designed to solve the problems that my clients have experienced while working through the content creation process with me.
These resources will give you the blueprint to get started!
I’m more than happy to have a 15-minute chat with you to help you figure out exactly what you need - book in for a chat here. Until then, do what us facilitators of learning do best:
I literally could not have done it without you, Maria!
I used your Excel sheet to build the thing, breaking it all down into small actionable chunks, getting all the bits in so I could stay on track. It saved me from going crazy, keeping all the material straight and on-purpose!
Everything is so beautifully co-ordinated though the numbers with the workbook and the slides - my business partner and I churned out two days of content, a 100 page workbook and 100 slides - it's EVERYTHING I know about this - in about 6 weeks. Thanks to you, Maria. If it wasn't for you, I couldn't have know where to start or where to stop!
The whole workshop ROCKS and I had a ball teaching it - they were engaged the WHOLE time and the materials were great! They could find what they needed in the book EVERY time.
Thank you for sharing so much of your amazing knowledge and building such a fantastic tool! You're wonderful! 🙂
