About Margo Purcell

Margo Purcell

For her entire career, Margo Purcell has developed creative ways to help people share the best of themselves, their talents and their abilities with others. Her extensive skills in facilitating and team building have made her a valuable resource to companies that are performance-focused and interested in realizing the true potential of their employees and managers. Margo is especially gifted in one of the most important areas in which a facilitator excels: listening. Open and receptive to what people say and, equally important, what they don't say, Margo brings to her workshops an environment of inclusiveness where ideas and possibilities are fostered and explored.

In customizing workshops for her clients, Margo has several high quality instruments available to integrate as a qualified Lumina Learning practitioner, a licensed Insights Discovery™ practitioner and a qualified Myers-Briggs MBTI® Step I and II provider. Margo is a Destination Coach graduate and received certification as an Inspirational Coach through the University of Strathclyde. She has developed a program called Teamscaping© which includes a team development workshop incorporating the concepts of xeriscaping.

Margo has a strong social conscience and is an advocate with RESULTS Canada, a grassroots citizen organization committed to creating the political and collective will to end poverty. She has successfully lobbied the Canadian federal government as well as international institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in Washington DC to take on a greater role in eliminating poverty around the world. She is an active volunteer contributing to organizations aligned with her vision that every person has unlimited potential given the opportunity and support to achieve it.

Margo currently resides in Calgary, Alberta with her family.
