CREATE QUALITY LEARNING EXPERIENCES™
WEBINARS TEMPLATES ARTICLES TUTORIALS WORKSHEETS
The Library . . .
is a collection of webinars, tutorials, activities and worksheets to help experienced professionals create quality learning experiences. My clients are subject matter experts, the go-to authorities in their niche, who are also called on to be educators but don't have extensive experience or qualifications in adult education.
The contents of this Library have been created and curated based on areas they need assistance with.
So what inspired the Library?
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 change maker?
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.
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.
- Neither you nor your clients are getting the results you want and you can't work out why.
- You know the type of course you want to create, but you’re swamped by the task ahead.
- The quality of the course you're delivering just doesn't seem to match the quality of your expertise, and you can't work out the missing links.
- You're stuck not knowing how much content to include, or how to break it down.
- The content itself is great, but people just aren't engaging with it the way they should.
You're scared that whatever 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?
What will happen to your reputation and your business then?
Hi! I'm Maria and I'm here to help.
--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 hear you! I’ve taken my fifteen 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.

I have been working with Maria on presentations for workshops I will be running. Her course has taught me how to structure my presentation and deliver it in an engaging and interactive way.Maria is energetic and genuine and makes the learning process fun.
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!

SOOOO excited! I've just completed the theory in the 4 PILLARS e-Course and am now jumping in to create my own course - to help people worldwide relocate and resettle in a healthy and happy way!
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!

I walk my talk...
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.
Lots of people talk about engagement or creating trainings or inspiring your audience but Maria is the real deal.
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.
Cat LeBlanc - Business Strategist
Working with Maria was amazing because she shows you how adults learn, how to set expectations for your learner then lead them through your programs and content.
