Welcome to the 237th episode of the award-winning Diverse Minds podcast. In last week's episode, I discussed the need for systemic change to truly inspire and encourage inclusion.

Today, we're exploring the concept of "unmasking the mask" with my fellow coaching colleague, Marie Loney.

About my guest

Marie is a Wellbeing Executive Coach, who employs a person-centred approach to her practice. With over 20 years of experience in facilitation, training, and executive coaching, she specialises in enhancing mental fitness, productivity, stress management, resilience, and psychological safety.

This focus fosters highly collaborative environments, building trust across teams, businesses, clients, and markets.

Having personally faced stress, anxiety, exhaustion, and burnout in prior roles, Marie decided to specialise in wellbeing. She supports her clients in developing the mental fitness and wellbeing skills necessary for a sustainable work/life balance.

Her proficiency lies in dissecting situations and guiding clients to develop tools that enable them to navigate their journeys in a healthy manner.

Marie places wellbeing at the core of her coaching, recognising its pivotal role in improving employee engagement, performance, and overall business success. Her coaching methodology is tailored to support professionals to evolve their mental fitness and foster a culture of wellbeing within their organisations.

Her extensive expertise spans leadership, wellbeing, and Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (ED&I) across diverse sectors, including beauty, fashion, education, medical communications, pharma, charity, art, banking, and media with a global reach,

Marie recently spearheaded an initiative in collaboration with the British Beauty Council for British Beauty Week 2023. The initiative aimed to guide consumers on a transformative journey of self-discovery by prompting them to contemplate the significance of inner beauty.

Encouraging individuals to unmask their faces and turn their focus inward, the initiative sparked engaging discussions on the profound connection between inner beauty, outer appearance, and broader aspects of personal identity.
