About Maree Clancy

While most companies have origin stories rooted in fulfilling passionate dreams, SAY IT NOW  took shape out of sudden necessity – a product of adversity. In that critical time,  I realised the importance of introspection. In order to progress, evolve and thrive,I needed to take ownership of my part to this adversity.It was in the midst of this personal reckoning that I began unearthing a transformative insight: the elusive ingredient that fosters gravitas and power in all influential communicators, leaders and speakers.

Over two decades have passed since that pivotal insight and now, SAY IT NOW anchors its essence in two resounding principles born from this discovery; Connect Within, Influence Beyond. Achieving genuine influence necessitates alignment within ourselves - harmony between our mind, body and voice. Only through this mind, body and voice congruency within, can we unlock the ability to extend our influence beyond, thereby making a profoundly significant impact on others.

Founded in Brisbane in 2003 by myself, SAY IT NOW has a proven track record of effectively catering to diverse clientele encompassing Federal, State and Local governments, as well as the private sectors. 

SAY IT NOW strives to develop powerful communicators and visionary leaders, who foster connections, wield influence, and drive positive workplace transformations for a better world.
