Nothing like hearing from a few happy clients to help you understand what you can get out of joining me for a workshop, coaching or consulting package, right?
Following are reviews from Corporate Organisations, Education Project Managers, Small Business Professionals, Schools and Colleges.
Here's what they say about working with me....
Jo had an existing course she knew was ready for an upgrade.
I had program that I knew already worked. I had delivered it many times live, so the content was all there and the results were great... But I wanted them to be OUTSTANDING. I also wanted the program to stand alone without my constant input. So I knew I needed another set of highly skilled and objective eyes to run over the program material to create a more robust learning experience.
Maria over-delivered! She knew what questions to ask, she knew how to empathise with my target students, and she knew how to structure the content to make the experience flow more effectively. She's efficient and super awesome at creating activities and workbooks.
I'm confident now that my program is in excellent shape and will stand up as an outstanding learning experience. Maria also knows how to have a bloody good laugh, which is super important for me while doing business. The whole coaching experience was an absolute joy!
Jules needed a keynote presentation pulled together.
She had brainstormed the kind of information she wanted to get across, jotted down some bullet points but needed some help to get it across the line. This is what she had to say about the one hour session it took to bring the keynote into a cohesive whole.
I had a 20 minute keynote presentation coming up, and I knew what I wanted to say... but not how to say it in a way that was effective. In just one hour of coaching, Maria extracted all the ideas out of my head, put them into an order that made sense, and even injected some humour to make the speech more "human." Working with Maria was the best move ever - I ended up with a killer keynote, and loads of confidence going into the presentation... and it was a winner on the day too!
Jules Galloway - Naturopath
Maria needed a keynote presentation pulled together. This was her message to me after the first event she delivered it at.
Maria! I'm sooo happy with how my presentation went! The audience really engaged and interacted with me, and even came down to my stall to reconnect with me afterwards! They joined in the experiential part, and the group sharing went really well! So happy with this presentation in terms of being able to position myself and my services. THANKYOU for your help - it made ALL the difference!
Maria Golding - Motherhood Science
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 with her. 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.
International Sales Strategist, Speaker and Coach
Maria! Just wanted to let you know how the workshop went ... IT WAS AWESOME!!!! ..... They took notes! They asked questions! They talked to me and each other! They gathered together in the morning tea break and chatted to each other about their projects! They all thanked me individually as they left. Then they posted a string of amazing testimonials for me on social media and the website ... Woooohoooo!!! So now, of course, my brain is exploding with 'what's next'.
Thank you thank you thank you thank you .... just so glad I did this with you - it seriously made all the difference. To the content, to the benefit they got, to how I felt. The one thing I really felt from the workshop was just how amazing the interaction was.... I was blown away by how well the techniques and strategies you'd taught me worked, how much better and more confident it made me at delivering the workshop - and how much it improved attendee experience. I also love the butt kicks you gave me a long the way, and how our time together helped keep me accountable to creating this workshop methodically and intentionally (rather than last minute and in a panic!) Love your work!

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. I saw first hand exactly how I can better communicate with my audience and not have people yawning in my videos, by watching her demonstrate and then explain different skills - this is the beauty of working with her - she really embodies what she does!
Maria inspires, motivates and truly connects with her learners.
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.
Psychologist and Career/Business Coach
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.
Financial Mindset Coach and Trainer
Working with Maria has been an absolute delight. Not only have I taken my online course to a whole new level, I also acquired many time saving tech skills. Maria helped me develop my basic course into a professional, educational and impactful learning experience. Her knowledge and expertise guided me through the maze and gave me clarity and confidence every step of the way. I am so proud of The Sugar Truth and cannot wait to share it with the world.

I have been working with Maria on a presentation 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 so that 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 VIP course 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.

Oh my. A huge thank you. I have recreated my course outline, reworded my welcome page done my Objective Statement framework and just recorded my new Welcome video. I am so happy with the evolution. Next off refreshing all modules using the objective statement framework and fixing the action sheets up. BOOM, the investment in you was gold.

Maria, just wanted you to know that the last training I delivered, I put myself in the delegates shoes and thought about how I learnt the most effectively - and guess what? I got a card from them saying how great a trainer I was!
First time that's ever happened! I reckon its got something to do with you.

I've been searching for something like this course (the 4 PILLARS) for years - and I finally found it! It's the best course 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!
Create Real Change, Create a Quality Learning Experience
This is an excellent class to see a professional who know how to promote and engage with her audience. The continuity of the layout of the presentation was great. Everything from the storytelling to the visual is a total package and I wanted to engage and learn more. Have a nice day!
Complete, Succinct, Inspirational
Maria is an engaging speaker who covers the entire spectrum of creating a quality learning experience in 12 succinct, logical steps and inspires the learner to want to learn more. This appears to be a great overview for her more detailed online course.
Small Business Owners
Just a quick note, prompted by your newsletter, to let you know where the work you did with me has gone… this week your awesome planning tools were used to create a workshop for at-risk youth, helping them understand anxiety and depression so they can be empowered to disrupt the symptoms. Following your framework, Maria, led to 93% of these young people feeling they would handle the symptoms better in the future, and the youth coordinator said she’d never seen a better program. She was over the moon ♥
It was a group project for my tafe program (I’m switching careers, and doing a double-diploma in community services and counselling!) and there were many things that went into the success of the program (like amazing teammates) but Maria, I’m so grateful that I had worked with you and could push to build a workshop that focused on applied experience to cement demonstration and explanation. The effect on the students was massive, better than we could have hoped for. Our lecturer is falling over herself with compliments, and there’s talk of rolling the program out on a wider scale. Astounding!
So thank you. You’re an awesome educator, Maria, and an inspiration. I’m so pleased to know you =D
On my very first call with Maria she gave me advice on a product bundle idea that became my best seller product! I also really loved the detailed practical feedback on how to better structure, deliver and sell my online course. I highly recommend you invest in her advice. Thank you Maria!
Recruitment and Career Coaching
Maria, thank you! Working with you has been so much fun and so productive!
The way your brain can take complex information (also known as the 20 years of theory and experience in my head!) and turn it into a structure that makes total sense, is phenomenal. That you can then turn this into a visual blows my mind! Oh and you did this in what, three sessions? Amazing!
Through what you’ve taught me, I’ve been able to nail a structure for my coaching practice and the online programs I’m creating. I feel incredibly confident now that I’ll be able to share my knowledge and experience in a way that will truly inspire and help others.
Thank you, with all of my heart! You are brilliant and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to do the 4 PILLARS e-Course and work one-to-one with you.

The beauty of learning online is that you can find the ideal content for what you want to learn. I’ve taken many courses online, some have been great, some have sucked. This is also how I reach my ideal clients. 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.
Maria demonstrates everything she talks about in her 4-PILLARS program. This program gives you a very clear understanding on how to consider your learner’s and client’s needs in the structure and delivery of your content.
I went to Maria because I didn’t want to leave clients with the experiences I was having. Even if the content was great, if the delivery isn’t how I learn or if the content was just thrown out there without consideration for my time as a learner, I let it go and moved on to something else.
I have referred many people to Maria that are delivering any part of their business through online content. The beauty of her program is that it isn’t just suited for online content but for in-person delivery as well. It’s such a shame to see really great content that falls dramatically short in structure and delivery.
If you are serious about your clients, about how they learn, about getting the full experience of what you are delivering, about getting their money’s worth, about engaging in your content instead of it sitting there doing nothing, you must work with Maria. Her expertise is second to none.
I guess it's always the doubt or wonder whether a person can do what they actually say they are going to do. When I first called Maria, I had so much in my head, it was so loud, confused and just ready to explode!! I judged that what was in my head was too enormous for any one person to be able to manipulate and get specific with or actually make any sense of, after talking with Maria the first time, a light actually did ignite within me, that she possibly could be the real deal and do what she promised.
After our first session and even doing the courses. Maria absolutely delivers on what she promises!! That light that ignited is turning into a raving fire!! I am sooooo elated with joy that she is resolving my enormous head giants, slaying them with her wit and practical knowledge of how to! I love it so much, I'm bursting #heartburnnnnn
Maria's really easy to work with. No matter how much of a nut I think of myself, she's have never made me feel that way. Rather, I feel more confident and empowered to be able to actually do the job because of her guidance and support. I love how she cuts out all the nonsense and is so transparent - in a way that our businesses can serve with authenticity and genuine integrity. So thank you Maria !! I couldn't have done this without you.

If you want to get something done right the first time, you can struggle on your own or you can surround yourself with experts in their fields and get the job done quicker and far better than you could ever have done on your own. Experts have systems, processes, templates and they give you hope by creating beauty from your chaos!
Maria Doyle you rock my world and I am very grateful for your support and helping me bring my ConfidentYou course to life!
Inspirational Keynote Speaker, Twice-Published Author and Performance Coach
Maria has this uncanny knack of helping your brain make sense of a ton of information. The time I spent in her group workshop was just what I needed to re-set my systemisation skills and help me continue to pull together all the stuff inside my head into a usable format. Maria is the person to go to help you get your ducks in a row so that you’re ready to chunk and package your know-how into something that works. Plus, she is great fun to work with and is so generous with her help and support. Thanks Maria.
Director - Grow Talent
How did you feel before your session?
I was excited, keen to get a framework set up so I could build my workshops. I understood all the theory of the 4 PILLARS and had a mindmap, but didn't know where to start to build the framework.
How did you feel after your session?
Exhausted lol there's just so much more to create a valuable learning experience than I had imagined!! But I felt deeply satisfied as well, because I know now that what I'm going to produce will be worth it.
Working with Maria saw all my ideas for my workshop series come together in a clear, practical plan. The details required to set the foundations of my workshops were beyond anything I could have created on my own. She was warm, encouraging, clear, and challenged my thoughts. I left the session feeling confident and ready to create a valuable learning experience for my clients.
Coach and Author of "My Great Idea"
SOOOO excited! I've just completed the theory in the 4 PILLARS e-Course and am now jumping in to create my own course(s) - 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!

How were you feeling before you got the Course Review?
It was the fear of the unknown. Let’s face it, our businesses are our babies, so it’s hard to have someone review our programs and courses when you’ve poured your heart and soul into them. Knowing the sheer size of my program, I was a little intimidated by the changes I may have to make.
I know my program content and quality is amazing – BUT there’s ALWAYS room for improvement. I knew Maria’s background and experience in education, I’ve seen her passion first hand (I knew she really knew her stuff). AND I knew my program would be in “nothing but the best” hands having Maria reviewing it.
What's the value that you've gotten out of the Review?
Maria’s experience and authority in education shines through in a massive way. Anyone who wants to take their program or course to the next level, is super passionate about helping their clients succeed … I’d say “jump in feet first”… don’t hesitate … It’s so worth it.
Thanks Maria, YOU ROCK!

Quit The Cubicle
I've known Maria for over a decade now and she is my go-to person for no bullshit clear and constructive advice. She is extremely intuitive when it comes to recognising what you need and how you can best move forward, and because of this she can give you clearly defined steps to take and well-defined reasons for taking them. She creates a safe space for you to talk about the things which are really holding you back and then helps you to uncover the answers for yourself and act on them. I can't recommend her enough.
