lHey legend, I'm Dr Maz!

An energetic & heartfelt speaker, ready to inspire

That’s right – as well as being an accomplished copywriter and creativity coach, I can also speak at your next event or appear as a guest on your podcast. I can speak on a variety of topics related to creativity, mental health, journaling and copywriting. So if you supply an eager audience, I’ll bring my roguish charm, good humour and a presentation to knock everyone’s socks off.

It's about connection

people want to be seen

When I watch a speaker on stage, I want to feel like the world doesn’t exist outside of that room. I want to feel like there’s nowhere else to be and that they get me. I want to feel connected, not just to the topic at hand, but to the speaker – I want to be seen. 

As an energetic and heartfelt speaker, this is what I do best. I help people feel seen. 

Whether it’s in person in front of a crowd, online amidst screens or one-on-one for a podcast, I can create an environment where attendees feel safe enough to open up, share their experiences and be vulnerable… because creativity requires us to.  

I bring more than 5 years of experience in running workshops, masterclasses and teaching in various online group coaching programs to my gig as a speaker. 

I love presenting to people from all different walks of life: from artists and designers, to corporate teams and small business owners, I’m known for not shying away from the big questions. 

I also have a knack for making complex ideas accessible and practical, while also inspiring listeners with my own challenging life story.  

If you’ve got an event coming up and you’d like to add some inspiration and creativity into the mix, let’s start a conversation to see if I’m ya gurl.
