Our speaker:

Maria Franzoni has been working in and running international speaker bureaus for 23 years.  In that time, she has booked thousands of speakers for corporate and business clients.  She has worked with the good and the great of the speaking world, including first man on the moon Neil Armstrong; Body shop founder and environmentalist Anita Roddick; musician and political activist Bob Geldof; business magnate Richard Branson and F1 and NASCAR racing champion Jacques Villeneuve.

When the pandemic hit Europe in February 2020 it decimated the industry for speakers and speaker bureaus sending Maria’s business into a 3 month period of crisis.  In June 2020, having stabilised the business, Maria split the bureau in two; with half the team supporting clients while she and the remaining half focused full time on helping speakers rebuild their speaking businesses.

Lori Toader

Lori is a Sales & Marketing Director in Metadata Training helping managers upskill their staff in business analysis through training and the business analyst apprenticeship.

Her passion is to develop businesses so they can reach the right customers and live their mission. To do this, she promotes a culture of trust, speaking up, and taking ownership. One of her superpowers is to motivate people to do what they are scared to do or think they can’t do. She gets a real sense of achievement witnessing people achieve their dreams or goals due to working with her. She believes the purpose of life is to learn and grow to become better versions of ourselves.

Her most significant achievement is leading her company’s marketing and sales department, which helped the business reach a 100% increase in turnover within three years and steadily growing ever since

At 31, she experienced a terrifying panic attack that forced her to conquer her fears, gave her the force to follow her dreams, and triggered a mini obsession with understanding how the brain works.

The best decision she ever made was to move to London to study for a MSc in Informatics after finishing her Computer Science degree in Bucharest, Romania.

She spends most of her spare time reading books, cycling, traveling, salsa dancing, meditating, and doing yoga. Her biggest dream is to travel around the world on her bike. She loves chatting and connecting with people who have similar interests.

Event Testimonials

  

I joined Speaker Express four months before my biggest speaking gig ever: a 45-minute plenary session to 300 people in the US. Speaker Express taught me how to be 100% myself on stage, how to be vulnerable, how to connect with my audience. After my speech, I received a standing ovation, 27 invitations to speak elsewhere, and my mailing list trebled.

Elaine Hopkins

Author, Speaker & Explorer

I took the two day Speaker Express course, worked on my confidence and now secured 4 speaking gigs! 

Ash Taylor

Consultant

I went from this ‘raw, rough and ready speaker with no structure’ to running my business and using speaking as a way to attract clients.

Ollie Trew

Speaker & Coach

Speaker Express has pushed me out of my comfort zone and made it more comfortable.
