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.
