Azizi Marshall challenges you to re-examine your relationship to mental health within the workplace and within yourself. She dismisses traditional frameworks, opening a new paradigm in which she:

  • encourages you to recognize opportunities

  • find balance

  • incorporate mindfulness

  • reconnect to a sense of well-being

  • express your authentic self to the world

 

From Senior Executives that are stuck in a habitual rut, to burnt out Mental Health Professionals and aspiring recent graduates, they all share a common life-changing experience when they listen to Azizi.

Azizi is also able to cater any presentation to your organization's specific needs. Additional topics available upon request.

SPEAKER OVERVIEW

Azizi Marshall is an inspirational public speaker and trainer with more than 20 years experience in sharing her passion for creative mental health workshops with business organizations, Fortune 500 companies, professional associations, women’s groups and universities.

 

Like you, Azizi Marshall, an award-winning Creative Arts Therapists and self-care experts, has seen the word “success” defined numerous ways over the years. Is it all yoga and meditation? Work hard play hard? Smoothies and juices? Is it all about your external signs of success? Is it meant only for the chosen few who rise to the top? Or, is there a different story?

Azizi's view is radically different. She understands that self-care is a moment to moment decision. With over a decade of mental health experience working in some of the most demanding business environments, Azizi is able to bring practical real world experience to her coaching, mentoring and speaking. It’s this fusion of first-hand experience, personal anecdotes and humor that enable her to connect so deeply with her audiences and create such inspiring and transformational talks.

Azizi owns and runs 4 different companies that focus on harnessing the power of creativity, play and innovation to engage and heal the world -- serving everyone from burned out professionals to teens with behavioral issues.

 

Her own journey through burnout that landed her in the hospital, led her to work with holistic wellness professionals across the country to learn how to TRULY take care of oneself.

Aziz has been featured on CNN, NBC, Reader's Digest, Oprah Magazine, Huffington Post, Thrive Global, Chicago Tribune and more on how to harness the arts for mental health. She is recognized as one of the most influential people in the Creative Arts Therapy community, and regularly mentors and coaches high achieving women to honor their inner hustle without compromising their own personal health or happiness.
