Margaret Hope, Speaker
What her clients say:
“We take part in a session with author and communications guru Margaret Hope from British
Columbia. She must read Churchill, for she knows how to deliver a speech like no other I have seen. She is to critique our three-minute speeches. I decide to be brave and throw away the speech I had written. I am in the hands of the finest female communicator in Canada, and I decide to trust that I can do the short speech without notes.”

“Amazing, gripping, engaging, laughter, navel gazing”
“Wonderful speaker, very engaging”
“Fantastic presenter, she engaged the room the entire time”
“Wonderful! Great opportunity for participation; enthusiasm high; again, kept it simple and powerful”
Margaret presented an inspiring, dynamic and interactive workshop for our volunteer network at our provincial conference. When Margaret and I first spoke about the workshop, I identified some key points that would be valuable to the attendees and Margaret then carefully personalized the presentation for our audience. Her style of facilitation and hands-on activities kept people engaged throughout, and many people commented how motivated they were by her session. Attendees said that she “kept it simple and powerful,” was a “fantastic presenter who engaged the room the entire time,” and she provided practical tips and skills they could apply to many types of situations. It was an honour to have Margaret present, and I sincerely hope we’ll have the chance to work together again.
