A Personal Message From Marlo

Firstly, I’d like to start by saying “thank you.”

Being considered to serve the audience at your next event is a huge privilege and I am excited by the possibility of us working together.

We put this page together to assist you in your decision making process, provide you the information you need to help your selection and give you examples of how I have worked with others in the past.

It shares a little of my experience and what can be delivered specifically for you. Regardless of whether your event will be live, in-person, remote or pre-recorded, then there is a solution for you.

My entire philosophy is to be a joy to work with, delight your audience, over deliver on value and make your life as easy as possible.

So, have a read through, and get a feel for how we can work together.

Thanks a million,

Signature Presentations

It happens to all of us. We decide to act, put all of our passion and effort behind that action, and it doesn’t go as planned. This setback is not final; it is simply feedback. How we react to this feedback can determine our path for incremental improvement and future success.

Marlo explores the cycle of success through intentional action while providing tools anyone can use. Learn to navigate uncertainty, evaluate negative feedback, and embrace the power of vulnerability. Together, we will elaborate on two equations to give more clarity to each individual’s purpose:

Passion + Intention = Purpose
Time + Energy+ Money = Purpose

Key Takeaways:
1) Unique ways to define and align your purpose.
2) The power of intentional action for personal growth.
3) Rebranding failure as feedback, not as a source of guilt.

What Now? What Next?

How was your day, today?

We all have a variety of aspirations, whether it’s advancing in our careers, building better relationships, or excelling in sports and hobbies. All are worthy goals, but how we reflect on our actions and the outcomes of our daily efforts can greatly influence our success.

Through his work in strategic development around the world, Marlo has developed his five principles for self-defined success. These principles break down how to excel in any pursuit at the most basic level and can help audience members tackle their goals, day by day, with renewed energy.

Key Takeaways:
1) Reflective questions to evaluate your day.
2) Viewing success and progress through your own unique lens.
3) Finding clarity amidst the twists and turns of life.

In reality, most of us have had tremendous amounts of success in our lives, whether achieving educational milestones, securing career advancement, or excelling at a new hobby.

However, soon after we achieve our ambitious goal, we find ourselves thinking that something is missing. The never-ending cycle of striving and achieving begins once again.

After interviews across three continents, Marlo introduces his unique concept: the ‘Spectrum of Joy.’ This framework guides us to discover enduring contentment alongside our accomplishments, culminating in a pivotal step that ties together our cycle of striving and achieving.

Key Takeaways:
1) Balancing bliss, happiness, and contentment.
2) Creating and reflecting on your life satisfaction checklist.
3) Cultivating and sharing the Privileges of Success.
