Marjorie’s Background

Named both Top Speaking Coach of the Year and Top Motivational Speaker of the Decade, Public Speaking Confidence Coach Marjorie Saulson is still going strong at 82 and intends to be the most fabulous +100 babe you ever met!

Author of the #1 international bestselling book, Empowering Business Owners to Overcome Speaking Fears Whether You’re Talking with 1 Person or 1,000, she is also one of 50 women (including Oprah Winfrey and Melinda Gates) who are contributing authors to the book,  America’s Leading Ladies – Stories of Courage, Challenge, and Triumph.

For over 40 years Marjorie has coached reluctant speakers to find their voice, overcome their fear of public speaking, and communicate with confidence and skill so they can reach their professional goals and make an impact in the world.

Marjorie began life as a shy, tongue-tied introvert – the last person you might expect to become a professional speaking coach. Determined to overcome her fears and lack of skill, she became a tireless life-long learner and went on to become a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Michigan, with a BA in Liberal Arts, a Teaching Certificate, and an MA in Audio-Visual Education.

She has gone on to master both sides of the microphone, giving presentations and workshops in the United States and Canada.

Whether it’s overcoming their fear of public speaking or developing an engaging presentation, people seek out Marjorie’s expertise so they can reach their professional goals and share their gifts with the world.

As a professional volunteer, she served as a magazine editor, chair of many events, and president of numerous organizations.

A professionally trained singer, voice actor, and certified adult trainer, Marjorie is a keynote speaker, hosts online courses, and works privately with clients.
A recipient of many honors, Marjorie enjoys living in her native Metro Detroit area, near her children and her grandchildren, and considers herself one very lucky lady!!

What happens when we work together?

No matter how many times you may have tried and failed to use communication opportunities to grow your business, I get you past your roadblocks and into the mindset to succeed.

I am dedicated to helping you leverage the power of communication, to get comfortable in tackling the business growth tactics that work so well for others – networking (whether online or in person), making phone calls to prospects, being interviewed, or being on a stage – so that you can achieve your desired results.

Overcoming your fears can empower you to:

  • Attract new clients or customers and close new business;
  • Build the strong relationships that result in repeat business and long-term partnerships;
  • Tackle any opportunity to meet new people with confidence and poise

As your Communication Confidence Coach, I empower you to feel comfortable when actually talking about your business in situations ranging from networking events, to product presentations, to speeches in front of audiences of any size, to talking on the phone with prospects and business contacts.

By combining my marketing and writing skills, along with my voice acting training, I work with you to:

  • Create or fine-tune the magnetizing message that truly represents your unique business voice;
  • Develop confidence, competence, and ease in delivering your message during any opportunity that presents itself, so that you can leverage and expand upon the selling skills you already have.

If you have any questions, or would like to get in touch, please send me a message using the form on my Contact Page.

I look forward to connecting with you and to facilitating your business growth and success.

When you say no to your opportunity to speak,  you are also, unequivocally, saying no to your opportunity to make a difference.  Period.

What My Clients Say

I had to give a 100 minute technical presentation and was petrified that I would put people to sleep.  I talked with Marjorie Saulson who gave me suggestions on how to structure my presentation. By using her suggestions in my presentation, not only did no one fall asleep, but I received questions and referral opportunities.
I highly recommend her for anyone who needs to create a fun & energetic presentation that does not put people to sleep!

Marjorie Saulson is an inspiration and, now that I have had the pleasure of working with her, a new mentor of mine. Although I am a trained singer like she is, I still learned new practical tools for presenting/performing. More importantly, Marjorie touched my heart with her authentic vulnerability and her long-lived drive to  empower people to succeed in connecting with their audiences.

Marjorie Saulson is my public speaking coach. She is helping me to go through all my free reports, ideas, headings and everything else with a fine tooth comb, patience, wisdom and a sense of humor.

She is wonderful, and I know that I will go from a good public speaker to a great one because of her thoroughness, experience and encouragement!

Marjorie has been one of the most valuable, engaging, and well-equipped guests on the Lunchtime Series Podcast to date. She is well-versed in her field, expresses herself with ease and comfort, and kept us interested from the start. Having her as a guest has been a joy. I would suggest her as a coach and speaker to everyone.

Leadership By Design


I had a panel discussion coming up in a few weeks. I called Marjorie and we went to work. Not only did she guide me through the normal jitters process, but after organizing my thoughts and learning speaking skills, I did not even use my notes. I am ready to do it again.
