Delivering Transformative Personal Branding Workshops to Companies and Universities Including:

Hello, I’m Marielle. My personal
branding workshops will transform
the 
self-leadership capabilities of your diverse talent to boost engagement, retention and productivity.

Whether I’m speaking on stage or popping into someone’s
living room through LinkedIn, I have one goal in mind:
to help women and diverse talent become
fearlessly
visible 
so that they've the tools to better manage their
reputation and 
career path.

I deliver engaging, interactive personal branding workshops for your company that: 

  • Provides steps on how to overcome imposter syndrome in male-dominated industries
    so that women and diverse talent have the confidence to progress and thrive 
  • Empowers talent with the tools to take ownership of their success so they feel
    empowered and 
    in control of their progression
  • Shifts professionals from an employee mindset to an intrapreneurial mindset
    so that they become 
    productive self-leaders 
  • Helps professionals create more impact and influence by leveraging LinkedIn so they
    can 
    build and cultivate a strong professional network.

Now you may be thinking…

If I invest in my talent to help boost their confidence and visibility and
cultivate a strong network, then
what’s stopping them from leaving?

Frankly, if your employees want to leave, they will leave!

It’s not about holding staff hostage to keep them from leaving.

It’s about creating a culture and
environment where they want to stay.

To do this, you need to show that you care and address their
specific needs. 

This is where I can help.

I’ve dealt with the same issues as your women and ethnically diverse talent, such as:

  • The imposter syndrome that comes with being the only woman and/or person of
    color on the team, in leadership, or at the boardroom table
  • Not knowing how to use my voice and raise my profile as an introvert 
  • The fixed employee mindset that made me feel stuck and not in control of my career
  • Not knowing how to network with senior leaders to cultivate sponsor relationships 
  • The frustration that comes with hearing the same old lip service used to placate “diversity hires.”

And because of my personal and over 15 years of professional  experience, I’m the perfect person to
help you discover your company’s blind spots so you can start meeting your diverse talents’ needs.

“So many practical and actionable tips.”

“You have to be visible, seen, heard, and comfortable with self-advocating and self-promotion.
This is so important… that raising the profile and visibility of Black women is core to our mission...
That’s also why 
I asked Marielle Legair to deliver a virtual personal branding workshop for
our members on 
how to increase their professional presence, specifically on LinkedIn.
[She] shared 
so many practical and actionable tips with our members.”

- Jacqueline, CEO of Black Women in Asset Management (BWAM)

I created The Professional Presence framework™️ to address the gaps within traditional models of leadership to help diverse talent develop themselves and own their careers.

Traditional models tend to be created by and for one particular demographic: straight, middle-class, white men.

As such, advice and strategies about managing careers fail to address the challenges of women and diverse talent because they weren’t designed with these demographics in mind.

Challenges like:

  • Being perceived as bossy, rude, or brusque when they show the same leadership attributes as their counterparts
  • Being told from a young age to keep their head down and just work harder
  • Lacking the networks, society, or ‘boys clubs’ that make it easier to navigate in their roles (especially at a leadership level).

The Professional Presence Framework

My five-stage methodology addresses the challenges holding back your diverse talent and will help them break the barriers to their progress. 

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify limiting beliefs that are hindering progression
  • Develop the self-leadership traits to navigate their path 
  • Embody executive presence to create more impact and influence 
  • Leverage LinkedIn to serve as ambassadors to your company 
  • Networking tips to develop key stakeholder and sponsor relationships 

The Professional Presence Framework is easy and accessible because it’s made up of learned skills that anyone can develop and improve with practice and support.
