  • Associate Director, Alumni Relations

    As keynote speaker at a recent Deakin University alumni event, Margie's presentation was engaging, heartfelt and thought-provoking. Having spent many years in events management I have rarely seen such an engaged and delighted audience on the night. Margie is a wonderfully inspiring and energetic presenter and I recommend her very highly. Her latest book Brave is also a great read!
