Keynote for Wednesday


Due to an availability issue with our previously announce speaker, we are pleased to announce two new speakers for our Wednesday Keynote address. Join Cindy and Madeline Marquardt for Resilience–A Key to Our Successful Transition.

Transitioning as an individual and as a couple triggers pressure, stress, and at times an overload of emotions. Resilience, a learned skill and ability play an essential role in people’s ability to effectively cope and quickly bounce back from adversity and life’s challenges. Madeline, who has over 30 years of experience in helping leaders learn to manage personal and organizational change, will explain resilience and share ideas about how to build it. She will be joined by her wife to share how resilience played a key role in maintaining their marriage while Madeline completed her transition to a transgender woman.

Cynthia Marquardt is a co-founder and owner of Ephektiv, Inc., an Organizational Development consulting and training company. She is the Financial Officer, Business Manager, and head of project management for the company. Cynthia has over 25 years of project management, overseeing projects throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Prior to co-founding Ephektiv, Cynthia helped create and manage Tosan, Inc. Cynthia pursues her interest in helping people in disadvantaged situations and helping others reach their full potential. Her favorite role in life is that of a grandma. Cynthia enjoys traveling, reading, gardening and walking among the grapes in vineyards.

After a lifetime of struggle Madeline (formerly Martin) Marquardt came to accept that she is transgender. In late 2017 completed a transition to living life as a transgender woman. While challenging, this experience has brought additional dimension and understanding to Madeline’s approach to culture, leadership, and diversity in the workspace, especially the critical role that inclusion plays in how individuals and organizations succeed. For over thirty years, Madeline has focused on assisting national and international clients to manage systemic change, clarify strategic direction, complete structural redesign, shift culture, develop executives and leaders, and improve inclusive diversity and employee engagement. Specifically, she has worked collaboratively with nuclear industry leaders to help define an optimal culture for nuclear power plants and has served on various nuclear culture and safety oversight boards. She has helped leaders in the U.S., Canada, and Europe develop and implement long-term initiatives to transform performance through culture change and leadership and employee development.
