The Library is a collection of webinars, tutorials, activities and worksheets to help passionate and experienced professionals create quality learning experiences. My clients are educators, trainers, and coaches who don't have extensive training or experience in adult education; the contents of this Library have been created and curated based on areas they need assistance with.
In 2012, after 12 international postings and 15 years experience in adult education, teacher training and curriculum development,
I decided to make Perth home again, and started learning about small business.
I was so appalled with the quality of unregulated online training online, that I decided to help turn that around, by doing what I do best,
and that is helping passionate professionals create quality learning experiences that engage, inspire and motivate their clients to create real change.
Are you a professional who is passionate about your industry and the amount of
change you can help people create? If so, fantastic. You're in the right place.
Check out the video, or have a quick look down the page to find out why I do what I do,
and how we can work together to bring life to your courses, programs and workshops.
Mediocre online courses lead to jaded, cynical customers and online learning fatigue. To capture people’s attention now— to really knock their socks off —we have to get serious.
It's not enough to have ideas, experience and an online shopping cart any more. People delivering online programs need to know how to teach.
And to do that properly, you need to understand your learners. You need to structure your material in a way that is proven to engage, inspire and motivate change.
You need to choose the right delivery techniques, and set goals-based tasks that will drive people to follow through and complete your programs; because, when your clients do that, their lives change, and when their lives change, everyone notices.
YOUR'E SCARED THAT WHAT YOU'RE DELIVERING
MIGHT NOT BE GOOD ENOUGH.
Your deepest fear is that people will buy from you, enthusiastically,
only to be disappointed. What if the red hot program you're promising on a flashy,
compelling sales page seems lukewarm once your clients are on the other side?
I'm here to show you how to create real change by turning your course into a quality learning experience.
You want to deliver a 5-star, maximum-impact program that
changes your clients’ lives so much that they can’t help but rave about you.
You want your course to be beautifully positioned in a hungry market, logically structured, clearly communicated, transparently evaluated and improved upon as it grows.
I’ve taken my 15 years of teaching experience plus the very best bits of several teaching and training qualifications, and synthesised it into an online Library of resources, that show you exactly how to build and deliver training programs that work.
This flexible library of resources takes you through the 4 essential PILLARS of a quality learning experience,
and many other courses that will help you if you're facilitating adult learning experiences.
IF YOUR JOB IS TO HELP PEOPLE IMPROVE THEIR LIVES, BUSINESSES OR COMMUNITIES,
THESE COURSES GIVE YOU THE FRAMEWORK, THE PROCESSES, AND TIME PROVEN STRATEGIES
THAT WILL HELP YOU GET IT RIGHT, EVERY TIME.
It’s a combination of curriculum development and teacher training:
knowing what your clients need, and how to deliver your solution brilliantly.
The Library is a collection of webinars, tutorials, activities and worksheets to help passionate and experienced professionals create quality learning experiences.
My clients are educators, trainers, and coaches who don't have extensive training or experience in adult education; the contents of this Library have been created and curated based on areas they need assistance with.
The Library is presented in four Levels.
Not sure which levels or lessons you need?
Or bundle some courses with a coaching package. All 8 hour coaching packages come with complete access to all courses in The Library. Find out more about coaching packages here.
Now I know my audience have participated in, and not just slept through, my workshop. I love that I have check lists for delivery techniques and visual aids so that I can refer to and duplicate the same professional standard for my next presentation.
I finally bit the bullet and signed up for the full course, and a coaching package, and in one week I have been blown away with the progress I have made towards systemising my knowledge and content in order to turn it into a series of help videos/blogs. If you want professional results, you need to talk to a professional!
Maria is energetic and genuine and makes the learning process fun.

Maria, I'm so very impressed with the course you've created, it's an awesome mix of rock solid content with engaging delivery.
I reached the end (not always the case with previous online courses I've committed to). And I'm going back for more!
This is coming from a girl who was dragging her feet in creating an online course - just a few weeks ago it was a 'should' in my mind, now it's becoming an exciting reality.
If the result is even a fraction how good 4 PILLLARS is, I'll be thrilled!

One of the things you’re going to love about The Library is the way it models successful program delivery. It takes away the confusion, the overwhelm and the ‘stuckness’ that comes with working out what you do, why you’re doing it and how to do it.
You’re able to move away from the one-on-one model of teaching, leverage your expertise and create programs and courses that can help many people at once.
Imagine having the freedom and confidence to be able to pull together a workshop, seminar, blog post or guest interview from your ready-built catalogue of resources and run with it, almost at a moment’s notice.
You’ll know exactly where your information is, how it all fits together including the specific activities to use for the group of learners with which you’re presented, in order to gain the very best outcomes.
She has literally decades of hands-on, real life experience in incredibly varying environments working on understanding learning and user/learner engagement.
Maria has a deep understanding of how learning happens and because she is just so damn good at what she does, she doesn't really explain things - she demonstrates them so you can see them in action.
This is the beauty of working with her - she really embodies what she does! Maria really does inspire, motivate and truly connect with her learners.

I've been searching for something like the Foundations courses for years - and I finally found it! They're the best courses I've ever done - and that's no exaggeration!
I've finally sorted through years of my workshops, materials, activities and books I've written and I finally understand how it all fits together.
I've been so overwhelmed when it comes to finding and piecing together materials for my newest offerings - but I'm so excited now about the new chapter that's about to start - I'm going to be so much more organised and chilled out when I get asked to do a workshop or presentation! Thanks Maria - it's been a total game changer!
