Margie Warrell Speaker Biography

The titles of Margie Warrell’s five bestselling books – Brave, Stop Playing Safe, You’ve Got This! and Find Your Courage – reflect her passion for empowering people to lead braver lives with greater impact. Recently relocated back to Washington D.C. after a decade in Singapore and Australia, Margie’s diverse international experience coupled with her background in Fortune 500 business, psychology, coaching, and leadership development bring cross-cultural insights to address the complex challenges facing of leaders and organizations today.

Trusted by enterprises such as NASA, Salesforce, Dell, Google, UN Foundation, Johnson & Johnson and Amazon to lead transformative programs foster more human-centered ‘cultures of courage.’ A member of the advisory board of Forbes School of Business & Technology, Margie has lectured at Columbia, Georgetown, USC, SMU and regularly shares her insights and interviews with leaders in her Forbes ’Courage Works’ column.

Recognized as a LinkedIn Top Voice, Margie is a sought-after speaker and media commentator (CNN, CNBC & Bloomberg) whose expertise in human behavior, workplace and women’s leadership has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Inc. to name a few.

Nominated as Australia’s first Ambassador for Women in Global Business and a Women’s Economic Forum Honoree, Margie’s PhD in human development inform her work with Global Courage in creating more inclusive environments that nurture diversity and advance more women to top tables.

Since her childhood in rural Australia, Margie has developed a passion for adventure travel. Most recently summiting Mt Kilimanjaro with her husband
and their four children.


No one is immune to fear. Yet in the midst of uncertain times, only those who’ve learned to rise above it and lead with courage can unlock the potential in themselves and others and seize the opportunity adversity always holds.

Engage teams around a big Why that fosters shared purpose, unlocks ingenuity and dismantles change resistance
Identify blind spots and reframe risk to make better decisions
Harness ‘emotional contagion’ to build psychological safety, nurture diversity & expand collective change-agility
Create resilience rituals that expand bandwidth and behavioral agility to thrive under pressure


Everyone experiences self-doubt yet successful people have mastered their inner dialogue, and don’t let their doubts call the shots. Drawing on the research from her best-selling book You’ve Got This! The Life-Changing Power of Trusting Yourself Margie will give you proven strategies to

Defy the doubts that are holding your potential and future hostage
Build self-confidence in the aftermath of setbacks, enabling you to ‘fail forward’ and succeed faster
Beat imposter syndrome and quiet your inner critic
Play from your strengths
Harness the power of language to harness fear, reframe stress and thrive under pressure
Apply the psychology of confidence and ‘train the brave’ to succeed on a whole new levels


Harness the power of conversations to grow, learn and thrive

The hardest conversations are often the most critical yet too often the issues that most need to be addressed aren’t. Research shows that over 80% of workers are avoiding at least one uncomfortable conversation at work — a conversation they know they need to hold but are dreading.

In this insightful, interactive and powerful program, Margie deep dives into the DNA of communication, sharing a framework of how to engage in the crucial and courageous conversations needed for individuals, teams and organizations to learn, grow and thrive.

Attendees will learn practical frameworks and skills they can apply immediately to:

Bridge organizational silos and get everyone pulling behind the same mission
Address conflict and build collaboration
Provide constructive feedback in ways that produce optimal outcomes
Speak with greater authority, presence and impact
Listen beyond what is being said to get to the heart of issues that derail
Text or talk: discern the right mode for communication and avoid the pitfalls of hiding behind technology
Express anger without insult and disagree without being disagreeable
Build a culture of accountability and manage conflicting commitments with integrity


Despite the compelling case for seating more women at decision-making tables, too few are. Empowering women to embrace their feminine strengths and own their power as change-agents is a vital lever for gender equity. Drawing on her PhD research into the interplay of gender, power and leadership coupled with decades of emboldening women globally, Margie will share her personal stories as a ball-dropping working mother of four while sharing practical strategies to:

Conquer the imposter syndrome and close the confidence gap
Find your authentic voice to speak with authority & impact
Counter ‘think male, think manager’ bias & ‘backlash effect’
Get the right career champions in your corner
Lower the ‘perfection’ high bar & get off your own back
Expand your capacity to thrive under pressure
Lift as you climb, amplifying the voice of other women
