Founder of Maria Franzoni Ltd – a speaker bureau doing things differently. Maria is a typical Leo, the daughter of Italian immigrants. A foodie – I live to eat rather than eat to live.

Girlfriend to a wonderful man, who gives me great support and encouragement in everything I do and is very tolerant. Older sister to the most energetic woman I know, who is also the best party host. A comedy lover. Mummy to Keaton the cutest and best doggie ever and step mum to Raffi the labradog.
