“Through my work at Performance Frontiers, I hope to see the ripple effect of well-written content take shape in our clients’ communities.”

Dr Marianne De Pierres, Content Creator

Marianne is Performance Frontiers’ content specialist. She translates our experiential learning and development programs into powerful online and published content.

A veritable Renaissance Woman, Marianne’s body of work defies strict categorisation. She is a prolific author and novelist, writing award-winning fiction for adults, young adults and children across genres and formats. In particular, she is drawn to science fiction and fantasy – where she imagines new worlds and conjures possible futures. She has consulted as a futurist and future scenario writer with various businesses to influence social and cultural change.

Marianne is passionate about learning and development. She has worked as a tutor and lecturer with the University of Queensland,
is an active member of various writing groups, including VISION, of which she is a founding member, and has developed online courses for a wide range of Australian writers centres, festivals,
libraries and government departments. She shows remarkable flare for online community-building and leverages social and digital media to connect people in innovative ways.

Whether writing novels, articles, business case studies, or even comics and role-playing games, Marianne writes to resonate. Through her work at Performance Frontiers, she hopes to see the ripple effect of well-written content take shape in our clients’ communities.

After hours, you can find her dabbling in a diversity of pursuits: including coaching young women’s basketball, researching her Gatsbyesque ancestors, hosting a myriad of events and workshops, and breathing life into her ever-expanding universe of written worlds.
