Mary Lou brings her charismatic, high-energy, high-empathy style to audiences around the world. With her unique perspective--leadership lessons from the corner office with on-the-street smarts thanks to interviewing thousands of American women about their lives—Mary Lou is compelling. With her experience as a career columnist and her face-to-face engagement with thousands of theater goers, she is no-holds-barred about the questions women face. What am I meant to do? How do I overcome barriers to change? How can I achieve the ultimate goals of success AND joy? Armed with candid videos and eye-opening case studies, she gets rave reviews as a keynote speaker, engaging moderator and entertaining host.
