What People Are Saying

“Bonnie was kind enough to participate in PowerToFly’s Chat & Learn virtual program. The audience felt beyond empowered and inspired to keep on advocating for their desires and professional aspirations. Bonnie shared actionable tips to address hard conversations with managers or potential employers and a useful roadmap to help our audience navigate gendered ageism in the workplace (and all other spheres of life). If there’s something we’ve learned during this session is that we will decide when we’re done. We would be honored to have Bonnie speak again at PowerToFly.”

“I just finished a coaching session with Bonnie Marcus. What an eye-opening experience. A lesson on “how to own your value” and “it’s not what you do but HOW you do it.” A true empowering lesson for what I am about and for my future. I’m ready!”

— Treicy Soto, Director of Production and Development, Hispanic Streaming at NBC Universal

What People Are Saying

“We recently had the pleasure and great honour to host Bonnie Marcus for a fireside chat on the very current topic of ageism in the workplace and, more importantly, how to recognize the warning signs and what to do about it. Our members came out of the session with a renewed confidence, a positive frame of mind, and an expanded view of the possibilities at their reach. We are Not Done Yet!™ On behalf of our members, thank you!”

The Career 4.0 Committee AFFQ

What People Are Saying

“Bonnie Marcus was referred to us by another executive leader in our membership named Susan Pelcynski who said it is important to get Bonnie’s thought leadership on how women who approach their 50s can continue to be valued in their organization and not be sidelined from ageism. Bonnie over delivered on her talk on owning your power, writing an new empowering story and adding value to the workplace. Bonnie led a very engaged conversation, created a safe space for women to be heard, and people stayed to connect with her after the event. We absolutely recommend Bonnie to be your coach or speaker without hesitation.”

Grace Dancel, Director of Chapter Management & Compliance, UPWARD

What People Are Saying

“Bonnie is an engaging, insightful, and practical speaker, author and coach. She gets to the root of why ageism in the workplace exists and how to deal with it. She invites her audience to share experiences and learnings with humor and compassion. We truly appreciate her support for women at all stages of their careers. Her presentation and facilitated discussion at our recent virtual networking event brough our attendees together in much the same way as an in-person event. Bonnie is the real deal.”
