CONFERENCE/KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Master Marco has spoken to groups from small intimate gatherings to large conferences;  dental groups to corporations;  team members to CEOs.  His stories and teachings are captivating and inspiring—he shares his experiences of his humble beginnings growing up in Chile with dreams of becoming a world champion, coming to the U.S. with $40 in his pocket, overcoming illness and homelessness to ultimately achieve his dreams.  He shares the universal principles he used to achieve seven world championships, become an 9th degree blackbelt grandmaster, author, own successful businesses, become an award-winning master instructor, and most importantly—achieve peace and balance in his life.  Select from the following topics or request a customized talk for your group’s needs.

  • ”From Homelessness to World Champion”

  • ”The Master Method–Steps to Success”

  • “Breaking Barriers-Overcoming Obstacles”

  • “Creating an Awesome Atmosphere”

  • “Winning Attitude = Winning Results”

  • “Positive Management: Why & How It Works”

The charisma that Master Marco displayed in the ring as a world champion translates perfectly to the conference room or the board room.  He is captivating and brings everyone in, only to knock them out with his message!  Master Marco weaves the lessons he learned from his youth, his homelessness, his training, and his world championships into business and life-changing messages.  The team at Horizon Consulting loved him.  Thank you, Master Marco!”

“Our team at RMR & Associates thoroughly enjoyed Master Marco’s “Breaking Barriers” seminar.  It was empowering, interactive, FUN, and it gave us tools to strengthen not only our team but strengthen us as individuals.  We even did a powerful exercise to “break through our challenges,” and broke a karate board!  It inspired our entire team to find their confidence and inner strength.  Thank you Master Marco, for a wonderful experience!”

“Marco Sies has the unique ability to captivate an audience and get their attention again, and again, and again.  Through his understanding of basic human behavior, he guides the listener through their own journey of personal growth.  You will learn to apply the principles of earning seven world championships in the first seven minutes.  The Master Method is masterful.  Master Marco Sies is remarkable!”

I am very grateful to Mr. Marco for accepting our invitation to speak at our Chakra Yog Workshops whenever we needed a special appearance. He has always left an amazing impression on the audience. People always ask for him… Whenever we meet, I feel a depth in his eyes conveying something very inspirational.  His very presence is mesmerizing. He is very clear in his thoughts and speech–no artificiality, very natural and sincere. He is always offering to help and support, and every word he speaks means something positive. He is a life changer…

If you are looking for a positive message to be delivered to your team or organization, I highly recommend engaging Mr. Marco. His life story and real world experience translate extremely well to all audiences with easy to follow steps to get your group focused and on the same page.  The best part of listening to Mr. Marco speak is that his message comes from the heart, is original and genuine and easy to apply.

Girl scout seminar participant

The day after participating in a weekend Girl Scout seminar, we received a call from a mom thanking us for helping her middle school daughter stay safe. She was with a friend at an evening event at their school, when they were approached outside by a man trying to lure them to a dark area of the parking lot. As he advanced upon them, the student who took our seminar used her voice and put her hands up yelling at him and attracting attention.  Her friend was frozen in fear, not able to speak up and did not know what to do.  The man became nervous and ran away, and the student’s mom told us that had her daughter not practiced the techniques she needed to scare the man away, she doesn’t know what would have happened.

Karate mom

One of our student’s moms shared with us that in the middle of the afternoon, she was followed by a man through a Potomac grocery store while doing her shopping. He continued to follow her into the parking lot, and as she approached her car, he came up very closely behind her, and attempted to grab her. She remembered what she learned from Master Marco, she quickly turned around, put her hands up in front of her, swinging at him with her gallon of laundry detergent she was holding, and yelled at him to “STOP and GET AWAY!”  She continued to yell at him, attract attention, and then he became disoriented, nervous, apologized and ran away into a van parked near her.  She got his license number, immediately called the police and filed a report.  Unfortunately, they never caught him, but FORTUNATELY she was safe.

College student seminar participant

After participating in this program, a young woman shared that unfortunately she became a victim of an attempted sexual assault, but the tools she learned saved her. Her body remembered the simple defense techniques she learned and practiced in the seminar, and since they were natural body movements and not complicated martial arts techniques, she was able to use them effectively. She also said that all she could hear were the voices of her fellow students yelling “NO!” and reminding her to scream, and fight her way to safety.  Thankfully she was able to stay safe because of what she had practiced.

12-year old black belt student

We received a phone call late one evening from the mother of one of our long time students, telling us that her son had been jogging in their neighborhood in the late afternoon, when a van pulled up beside him, and a man attempted to grab him and pull him into the van. She said that because of his training, he was able to kick and punch his way out of his grasp and run away to safety. They said that because of his training with Master Marco and the  confidence he developed, he was able to have the courage to fight back.  We are so grateful he is safe and with us today.
