Marie Hale – Sales, Marketing, Vision, Purpose

For more than 15 years Marie revolutionized small-midsized business marketing and sales in the Chicagoland area and internationally with her sales and marketing agency and speeches. As an award-winning speaker, Marie share's her story of resilience in the face of devastation and uses it to connect audiences to their WHY, their inner purpose, and threads that through a variety of sales, marketing, and keynote speeches that are custom crafted to align with the purpose and desired outcomes of every event. 

A powerful voice for women in business, soloprenuers and business owners, Marie delivers content that moves past the theoretical and into powerful tools and techniques that audience members can put to work immediately. Her unique blend of humor, authenticity and straight to the point presentations work well in conferences, gala and fundraising, and corporate training events.

Her stage presence is filled with joy, connection to the audience, and how-tos that can be used immediately!



After years of working hard to build her business, Marie achieved what she never thought she would. In 2016 Marie opened a sales and marketing firm with her mentor, and life partner, Jim. This had been her dream since the first time she met him. In short order, their business boomed. And in 7 months...he passed away.

Marie's powerful story of resilience, how to do business from a place of love and inspirational comeback will engage, move and motivate every level of audience. She proudly refers to her keynote as, "Red Lipstick and Resilience".
