“To get to the next level of greatness, depends on the quality of the culture,
which depends on the quality of the relationships,
which depends on the quality of the conversations.
Everything happens through conversations!” – Judith E. Glaser

Hello, I’m Maree Wrack, a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) specialiing in partnering with progressive organisations Shifting Leadership and Culture.

Applying the neuroscience of conversations to business challenges, I build conversationally intelligent leaders, teams and organisations.

What else I do

When I’m not actively contributing to business and friends, you will find me appreciating nature, spoiling our cat Boris aged 19, or travelling in Africa with my partner Nicholas helping to save the rhino from extinction
