Marie El Daghl is a communication expert and amateur stand-up comedian.
She has dedicated her career to helping individuals and brands communicate effectively. Despite originally studying journalism, she quickly found an affinity for public relations, a field she excelled in, working with small, medium and blue chip brands across industries including technology, finance, FMCG, retail, sports and much more. Her work involved developing communication strategies and overseeing their execution, as well as preparing and training business leaders to ensure they can compellingly tell their professional or organisational stories, in friendly and hostile environments.
Her training, coaching and facilitation experience is diverse and includes media training the French Ambassador to Australia as well as senior executives from leading global brands such as Mastercard, Nespresso and the CEO of Sumo Salad; comms & media training members of the Paramatta Eels board; re-defining the Mission, Vision and Values of organisations such as iNova pharmaceuticals and Looksmart Alterations and conducting messaging workshops for new Cryptocurrency Havven and Loyalty Solutions, a division of Mastercard.
She established Training George after watching Academy Award winning movie ‘The Kings Speech’. Dedicated to working with the best people in their fields who may feel trapped in in their thoughts or fears, Marie helps them free their mind, find their voice and make their words infectious. Her trademark humour is disarming, brings ease to clients and helps unlock their potential.
Marie has a Master’s degree in Organisational Communications, Diploma in Digital Marketing and Certificate of Training and Assessment. Qualifications aside, she has a deep passion for the field of communication and takes great pride and pleasure in watching her clients flourish personally and professionally as they become exceptional communicators.
When she’s not training leaders, she’s performing stand-up comedy or being masterfully manipulated by her two young children. She also does the housework and is currently perfecting her microwave cooking skills.
