Anna Marsden

Lead Trainer, Certified Coach  & Professional Speaker

Helping professionals shrink the gap between intention and impact, creating more compassionate and effective workplaces for all.


Anna Marsden is a high-energy trainer and facilitator with a background of 20 years in supporting people to enhance their communications. Holding both a Bachelors and Masters Degree, Anna is a qualified trainer (PTLLS), a certified coach (Barefoot®), a licensed psychometric practitioner (Emergenetics®) and an experienced professional speaker.

Anna’s passion for digital communications started at Graduate School – in San Diego, California – where she explored Identity in Cyberspace and received the Cotton Metzger Scholarship. Since writing her thesis, digital & social media have become disruptive forces that have transformed the way we communicate, make buying decisions, run businesses and ultimately live.

Training Design and Delivery

People are at the heart of the changes we’re seeing and Anna is driven by a desire to bring the ‘human being’ back into the workplace, rather than solely focusing on the technicalities of ‘human doing’.

As a social and structural thinker, Anna designs and delivers training programmes that build more productive workplaces by:

  • sharing relevant theoretic research
  • storytelling with cultural references
  • facilitating experiential learning
  • supporting increased self-awareness
  • encouraging awareness of others
  • acknowledging and valuing diversity
  • enhancing the use of thoughtful communication

All sessions are researched and planned out in our Think stage, delivered either virtually or in-person during our Share stage and, every trainer and session is evaluated against its objectives with our final Growth stage.

What others say:

I have known and worked with Anna Marsden for a decade, so I share this without any doubt or hesitation: Anna is REMARKABLE.
She is productive, efficient, creative, and empathic. She is a superb communicator and has an uncanny ability to connect with people.
Her expertise around issues of gender, sexuality and violence is only surpassed by her ability to share that knowledge with others–to educate and advocate.
