Who We Are
'The only way to do great work is to love what you do' - Steve Jobs
With over 18 years professional senior HR experience across various industry, Maria understands business, how it works and the challenges that co-exist with technology, people and process in a remote future. Maria's favorite things to do in the whole world are; enabling passionate people in authentic, tenacious business to grow and excel, daily exercise for her body and soul, and surfing online when she can, typically late at night for quirky fashion items and style inspiration, when the kids are in bed and the laptop is away. 'Different' was probably her first word, and she uses it to describe herself – because what gets her out of bed in the morning is working with people in business who want to be authentic, true to themselves, aligned to their work, doing what they love with the flexibility they need to have more success. She’s on a mission to help them discover how, using self-awareness, strengths-based self-leadership, self-acceptance and having the courage to 'be the change they want to be' in a flexible work revolution - Ghandi
What My Clients Say
Kate Hyde, Owner and Managing Director - 'Often I am feeling my way in the dark and so to have this professional guidance is just, well, great to be honest. What fantastic insight Maria gave me in the HR consultancy work she did and conversations we had. I found it amazing she picked up such a lot in the short time we had together. She made some amazing points. It's very clear to me how they will work. And good to know there is a framework (for want of a better word) to make this happen. Thanks so much for this, Maria. Really found it so helpful (and calming)'
HR Compliance and Best Practice
John Clifford, Finance Director - 'Maria helped us update our policies and contracts in a business that is changing and growing. She helped us make sense of the law and put better structure in place. We now have clarity, alignment and more confidence as a management team. She was organised, attentive and always available to help. She gave us a professional and consistently high quality service.'
Employment Law Advice
Vaughan Ryan, Business Owner and Director - 'Thanks Maria for your professionalism. In today's ever complex world of employment law, it's both prudent and necessary to have access to professional and independent HR advice on all your employment matters. As a small retail business in Cork city with 4 employees we know this all too well as we had occasion this year to call on Maria's HR expertise. Her timely advice and professional expertise helped us avoid an expensive employment contract issue. We would highly recommend Maria and MTReconnect.'
Strengths-based Leadership Coaching
Sally Anne Quirke, Owner - 'Maria has a gift. I found her leadership coaching style calming and future focused, I left Maria feeling more confident and clear. She takes you on a journey and enables you to gain clarity and take action around what's right for you and your business. Thank you Maria.'
Strengths-based Leadership Development
Ciarán Deasy, Chief Financial Officer - 'From the very first management development workshop I attended with Maria on how to manage teams with more success, I learned so much. It was brilliant, I couldn't wait for the next one. She is knowledgeable, inspirational and her sessions are practical, thought provoking and refreshing. She is not the atypical HR Manager you might be used to for all the right reasons.'
HR Compliance and Best Practice
