Bio - Maggie Conley

Maggie is a former senior manager responsible for managing the training needs of a national sales and marketing organization. She has co founded and served as a trustee of both a boarding school for dyslexic boys and an alternative medical clinic.

Maggie provides scientifically researched workshops and seminars and offers consulting to individuals and organizations geared toward increasing personal happiness through learning the benefits and methods of gratitude, forgiveness, optimism and other strengths of a well developed personality. These traits have proven to be effective in making individuals more capable of inspiring optimism, which leads in turn to reaching goals more effectively and easily.

Maggie has a Master of Arts in Critical and Creative Thinking and has been inter denominationally trained in the art of Spiritual Advising.

When I started the workshop, I had a lower than average feeling about my current state of happiness/gratitude. I had experienced a stressful week, which apparently colored my perception of what and where I am. When I finished the workshop, I realized a tremendous increase in my gratitude score in spite of the happenings of the week. In fact, I believe that attending this workshop and doing the exercises has had a lasting effect. I am grateful for having had the opportunity of attending the Gratitude Workshop.

Some post workshop comments:
  • "Wow, I went from a 4 to a 9. This past week had been tough."
  • "My numbers went from a 3 to an 8. I feel better now."
  • "I went from a 5 to a 10 and I learned a lot."
  • "It was great, my numbers increased."
I recently had the opportunity to enjoy Maggie Conley's lecture/workshop on "Gratitude: The Fast Path to Happiness". The workshop Maggie presented helped awaken in me an appreciation of the experience of Gratitude.....which I had been lacking in my life. The workshop exercises showed me how to apply and practice this concept in some way every day. I now understand and see that a practice (as well as an attitude) of "Gratitude" are essential to true happiness in life. Maggie's presentation was a blessing that revealed to me this power and potential for a more rewarding life. Thank you!
R.H. Wellington, FL
