Maryam is a magician. Not only is she the best speaking coach I’ve ever worked with, she is a remarkable curator of diverse and emerging talent. At the Skoll Centre we believe that everyone, everywhere has the latent power to make positive change. Maryam unlocks that power.

Dr. Peter Drobac, Executive Director, Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship

Maryam was great. I’m a pretty experienced speech writer and speaker and she helped me improve the content and the delivery of my talk. Highly recommended.


Andy Ratcliffe – Executive Director Impetus Private Equity Foundation

Maryam and her team have transformed our external communications – from her coaching on scripts, presentations, and the combination of the two.  Her rigorous focus on audience-centric messaging has already made an impact with our key audiences.  We are so grateful for her help and expertise!

Jennifer Stokes – Managing Director Development Rocky Mountain Institute

Maryam was an absolute gift to work with, making everyone from Nobel laureates to Obama Administration Cabinet members to me refine our messages and bring out our own, authentic voice—and all this using only Zoom as a tool during the pandemic. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Jennifer R. Kitt – President Climate Leadership Initiative

“Crushes it! Maryam was a total joy to work with. She ably coached 50 conservation professionals for a virtual expert series on oceans and climate that we organized. Thoughtful, effective, insightful, and disarming in her coaching. She worked very well with the production team and the event organizers and received rave reviews across the board from the speakers (myself included). Highly recommend.”
