“I employed Marie Lesoway on numerous occasions in my 55 years with Hemisphere Engineering. During my 20 years as CEO, I delivered 100s of speeches and presentations to key stakeholders. Marie helped me turn my drafts into impressive professional products that told our corporate stories with power and passion. People who heard these stories sat up and took notice. They were moved. They were inspired. They were persuaded to take action.

One example is the presentation I made to the City of Edmonton when the public was invited to have their say about the new arena, Rogers Place. Marie did an outstanding job of turning my notes into a compelling presentation that told Edmonton’s story and made city councillors take serious consideration of what I had to say. In fact, one councillor called to tell me that my presentation had convinced him to support the arena project.

When I needed to deliver a powerful message, I always called on Marie. I knew I could count on her to tell the story of my company and our projects with conviction, elegance and wit. She’s real good at what she does.”
