From the Author: An intrepid Australian, Margie Warrell is a bestselling author, master certified coach, media personality and dynamic speaker who empowers people globally to live more courageous lives.
The bestselling author of Find Your Courage (McGraw-Hill), Margie has learned a lot about courage since her childhood growing up as one of seven children on a farm in rural Australia, to becoming an emerging leader in the human potential movement.
Along the way she has travelled to over 60 countries, venturing to places most people only read about - from the Sahara Desert to the remote highlands of Papua New Guinea; from refugee camps of the Palestinian West Bank to the primitive tribes of the Amazon rain forest.
Margie returned to Melbourne, Australia in 2012.  After more than a decade of runningnumerous leadership and performance programs with top US organizations, Margie continues to be a sought-after speaker, travelling frequently to the US for keynotes and workshops.
A certified master coach and Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming with a background in Fortune 500 Business and Psychology, Margie has built an international career on empowering individuals - and the organizations they work for - with the strategiesthey need to expand their vision, engage in bigger conversations and lead more courageously.   Her client organizations include Best Buy, United Healthcare, British Telecom, ExxonMobil, NASA, Ernst & Young, Accenture, and AOL.  She is also a guest lecturer to MBA students at Georgetown University.
With her down to earth Australian humor and working mother-of-four efficiency, Margie gets to the heart of what holds people back in their business, careers, relationships, leadership and life.  Warm and direct, she has become a regular media guest  on national television with appearances on The TODAY Show, FOX News, CNBC, and is the  "Resident Coach
During the past decade, Margie has witnessed what she considers a growing trend of "fear becoming the new normal" for many people.  This has only served to fuel her passion in helping people become aware of areas where they are settling for less than they truly want, engage in bigger conversations, and expanding what they see as possible for themselves and the organizations for whom they work.
In 2010, she founded Global Courage, an organization focused on supporting women in expanding their vision, and building their capacity, confidence and competence for courageous leadership. Margie has been a keynote speaker at the UN Foundations Women Leading the Future Conference, Accenture's International Women's Day, The Womenetics Global Women's Initiative, AOL's Women's Leadership Symposium and numerous other leading women's events globally.
