There's no one quite like you. 

You are a singular being comprised of a distinct collection of experiences, expertise, insights, beliefs and values.

From your unique perspective, you may see, or sense, what others cannot. What could be, should be, or must be. Change that would be meaningful to you, your world,  even to the world at large.

What matters most to you? 


If there's something meaningful to you that doesn't exist just yet, are you willing to ignite it?

Imagine if you could do what is perfectly aligned with who you are and why you're here?

What would that look like?

The world as we knew it has changed.  Fundamentally. Dramatically. Irrevocably. And in some ways imperceptibly. 

The old way of being is no more. The conditions have changed, and we can no longer coast our way through life based on what we have done so far.

And therein lies great opportunity.

I've spent many years advising others
on how to express the leadership that evokes change. I've seen them achieve remarkable things, exceeding everyone's expectations, including their own. 

So I know when the conditions are right for change. And the time is now. Challenge the status quo when the world is in flux.

If the world doesn't reflect what matters to you, don't settle for what is now. 

If you see, or sense, there's a better way of doing - big or small - invoke it. 

If there's a change that would be meaningful to you, to your world or even to the world at large, ignite it.

We have the means to help you: The Illumify Game Changer.  It's our proven method of igniting meaningful change, integrated into a game that's played in three parts.

It will transform you into an Illumifier   embodied with the ability and will to actualize what matters to you.

When I first introduced Illumify to the world, it wasn't ready for it. But it is now.

So Illumify to be yourself fully, and unwaveringly, and realize your reason for being here.

And together, we can ignite meaningful change.

It's time to ignite. Our world needs you to fulfill the reason you're here.  To be the Illumifier™ you are.

It's not for the faint of heart. Illumifying takes courage and will. But being fully aligned in who you really are and what you're here to do is invaluable.

Together, we have the power to ignite meaningful change.

And that's my raison d'être. I am here for you.

"The Illumify experience had a profound impact on me personally and professionally.

It enabled me to realize what matters most to me, and to have the means to realize it.

I wholeheartedly recommend the experience to those who are seeking to make a meaningful impact in the world."

Luaba Kalonji,
Managing partner,
gloriosa Energy Solutions

"I had just left the oil and gas industry, and was stressed and confused about what to do next. The Illumify Game Changer transformed me. I mean that truly, from the bottom of my heart.

It gave me the clarity to create a new company, Gloriosa Energy Solutions. We’re building the first large-scale data centers in the world that are off-the-grid to be highly secure, and fuelled by cleantech energy. It’s never been done before.

The tremendous success we have had already is extraordinary for a start-up. The fact that we’ve managed to create this amazing ecosystem piece by piece is thanks to the burst that emerged from Illumify."

"My Illumify experience with Marianne taught me what matters. The cards are spot on -- questions about what can and must be better. I am now building my career with an organization that lets me do what best serves my clients and advisors.

I have Illumify to thank for the best half of my life to come."

Carolyn Ellis,
(Facilitator and Author)

"“My experience in the Illumify Game Changer was quite profound.This isn’t about learning a few nifty techniques and applying someone else’s wisdom to your situation.The Illumify game helped to shine a light on the gifts and unique perspectives that were already within me, but that I couldn’t quite perceive or articulate before clearly.

Marianne and Katherine facilitated these discussions with exquisite listening, appreciation, and insight. I appreciated their willingness to help me mine for gold, even when I thought there was nothing left to unearth.

I now feel more clear in my purpose as well as my value proposition to my clients. As a result, my business continues to expand and be informed by the roadmaps created through the Illumify process. If you’re ready to rethink, realign, and reinvigorate your life in any way, I highly recommend this program!”."
