Marisa’s own life story is direct proof of what serves as her main message: that the thoughts and words we choose have a direct impact on how our lives play out. After being told in school she was physically inept and would never amount to anything, Marisa went on to become the top trainer at the renowned Pineapple Dance studio in both London and New York and then worked for Jane Fonda in Los Angeles at the height of the fitness craze. Using her firm belief that the body does precisely what the mind tells it to, Marisa had her daughter Phaedra after numerous specialists insisted she would never get pregnant. She also used this very same philosophy to overcome two life-threatening illnesses and has helped many people do the same.
In the speaking realm, Marisa has given motivational lectures in Dubai, South Africa, Spain, Ireland, and all over the UK to an array of companies and organizations including Disney, Canon, Bauer Media, Marks & Spencer, Hachette publishing, and several Cambridge Colleges. She uses techniques including visualization, affirmations, and positive metaphors to instill in her audience extraordinary self- belief and unrelenting confidence in their abilities. Most impressively, Marisa is able to bring her reputation for curing her patients in just one session to her speaking engagements. The Academy of Chief Executives and the Women in Media Conference both voted Marisa best speaker in 2008 and 2009.
Her speaking style is open, engaging, warm, amusing and direct. She backs up her messages with fascinating powerful stories and gives the audience life-changing take-away advice and techniques.
